In 1987 Knopfmacher and Knopfmacher published new infinite product expansions for real numbers 0 < A < 1 and A > 1. They called these expansions Engel product expansions. At that time they had difficulty finding rational ...
We investigate the extension of binning methodology to fast computation of several auxiliary quantities that arise in local polynomial smoothing. Examples include degrees of freedom measures, cross-validation functions, ...
This paper studies the fast synchronization of directionally coupled chaotic systems under a chained interaction topology. Firstly, by applying finite-time stability theory, it is shown that all chaotic systems can achieve ...

To construct the model of gene expression using microarray techniques can reveal the regulation rules from the gene expression profiles. From S-system model, it is able to analyze the regulatory system dynamics. However, ...
Data mining is the most commonly used name to solve problems by analyzing data already present in databases. Feature selection is an important problem in the emerging field of data mining which is aimed at finding a small ...

This paper develops inference for the significance of features such as peaks and valleys observed in additive modeling through an extension of the SiZer-type methodology of Chaudhuri and Marron (1999) and Godtliebsen et ...
One of the fundamental motivations for feature selection is to overcome the curse of dimensionality problem. This paper presents a novel feature selection method utilizing a combination of differential evolution (DE) ...

Given an elevated prevalence of respiratory disease and density of pollution sources, residents of Roxbury, Massachusetts, have been interested in better understanding their exposures to air pollution. To determine whether ...
This paper studies Heath-Jarrow-Morton-type models with regime-switching stochastic volatility. In this setting the forward rate volatility is allowed to depend on the current forward rate curve as well as on a continuous ...
Solving some integro-differential equation we find the Laplace transform of the first passage time for filtered Poisson process generated by pulses with uniform or exponential distributions. Also, the martingale technique ...
The Fisher information for the canonical link exponential family generalised linear mixed model is derived. The contribution from the fixed effects parameters is shown to have a particularly simple form.
In this article, we present an estimation approach for solving nonlinear constrained generalized estimating equations that can be implemented using object-oriented software for nonlinear programming, such as nlminb in Splus ...
Explicit formulas for the Average Run Length (ARL) of Cumulative Sum (CUSUM) chart are very complicated in regarding the analytical derivation when observations are Long-tailed distributions. The objective of this paper ...
In this Rapid Communication, we consider the open problem of the minimum cost of two-qubit gates for simulating the Toffoli gate and show that five two-qubit gates are necessary. Before our work, it was known that five ...
Risk assessment for developmental toxicity studies in rodents is faced with the fairly involved data structure of clustered multivariate binary outcomes. While likelihood methods for this setting do not abound, we show ...
The trivial equilibrium of a nonlinear autonomous system with time delay may become unstable via a Hopf bifurcation of multiplicity two, as the time delay reaches a critical value. This loss of stability of the equilibrium ...
