The classical statistical paradigm emphasizes the development and application of methods to account for sampling variability. Many modern day applications, however, require consideration of other sources of uncertainty ...
BACKGROUND: Epidemiology frequently relies on surrogates of long-term exposures, often either individual-level short-term measurements or group-level based on long-term characteristics of subjects and their environment. ...
This study investigated the changes in electroencephalography (EEG) activity in train drivers during a monotonous train-driving session. Four combinations of EEG activities were also compared to investigate the difference ...
This paper describes an empirical comparison of the performance of four designs for a discrete choice experiment. These designs were chosen to represent the range of construction techniques that are currently popular for ...
Necessary and sufficient global optimality conditions are presented for certain nonconvex minimization problems subject to inequality constraints that are expressed as the pointwise minimum of sublinear (MSL) functions. A ...
This paper studies the linear programming (LP) relaxation of xjt-formulation of the single machine scheduling problem 1|rj|?wjCj. The Lagrangian relaxation approach is proposed to cope with the computational difficulties ...
We give an O(n 2) time algorithm to find the population variance of tour costs over the solution space of the n city symmetric Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). The algorithm has application in both the stochastic case, ...
OBJECTIVE: To develop a method for predicting concurrently both hospital survival and length of stay (LOS) for seriously ill or injured patients, with particular attention to the competing risks of death or discharge alive ...
In a general estimation problem, the deviance function generates statistics that are similar to squared standardized residuals. A deviance-based M estimator (DBME) is defined as an adaptively weighted maximum-likelihood ...
We give new constructions for DCEs in which all attributes have the same number of levels. These constructions use several combinatorial structures, such as orthogonal arrays, balanced incomplete block designs and Hadamard ...

The agéd number theoretic concept of continued fractions can enhance certain Bayesian computations. The crux of this claim is due to continued fraction representations of numerically challenging special function ratios ...
In this paper stationary regimes of open macro-systems that include active subsystems (with controlled parameters) near equilibrium are considered. A generalized Prigogine extremal principle for such systems is formulated ...
The paper addresses the issue of coupling between the electromagnetic and elastic vibrations and deals with the following three classes of problems: vibration of thin bodies in an electromagnetic field; a coupling that ...
This paper considers Cournot oligopolies with product differentiation when the firms have inexact knowledge of the price functions and there are random time lags in obtaining and implementing information on the firms' own ...
Previous research has used the Rasch model, a method for obtaining a continuous scale from dichotomous survey items measuring a single latent construct, to create a scale of community violence exposure. The authors build ...
