Semiparametric regression is a fusion between parametric regression and nonparametric regression that integrates low-rank penalized splines, mixed model and hierarchical Bayesian methodology - thus allowing more streamlined ...
Many business situations such as events, products and services, are often described in a hierarchical structure. When we use case-based reasoning (CBR) techniques to support business decision-making, we require a ...
This paper contains observations, conjectures and open questions concerning two finite sums that involve Fibonacci and Lucas numbers. Certain authors have become aware of the contents of this 9hitherto unpublished) manuscript ...

This paper uses Lie symmetry methods to calculate certain expectations for a large class of Itô diffusions. We show that if the problem has sufficient symmetry, then the problem of computing functionals of the form ...
This paper deals with the well-posedness of the global solution of a small initial value problem for a generalized Boussinesq equation. The conditions for the existence and uniqueness of the solution to the problem are ...
