We derive the asymptotic bias and variance of the penalized quasilikelihood (PQL) estimator of the cluster-level covariate effect in generalized linear mixed models for group-randomized trials where the number of clusters ...
Pharmaceutical companies and governmental regulatory agencies are becoming increasingly aware of the need for improved statistical methods for developmental toxicity experiments. Although a number of statisticians have ...
We analyze a class of quantum operations based on a geometrical representation of $d-$level quantum system (or qudit for short). A sufficient and necessary condition of complete positivity, expressed in terms of the quantum ...
We establish a theory of quantum-to-classical rate distortion coding. In this setting, a sender Alice has many copies of a quantum information source. Her goal is to transmit a classical description of the source, obtained ...

Highly structured generalised response models, such as generalised linear mixed models and generalised linear models for time series regression, have become an indispensable vehicle for data analysis and inference in many ...
Dynamic displacement and acceleration responses of cars with uncertain parameters under random road input excitations are investigated by using a quarter-car model. Based on the theory of random vibration, the vehicle's ...
Exposure to developmental toxicants may cause fetal malformations, increase prenatal death rates and reduce fetal weight at term. However, there has been little formal study of the relationship among these effects. Certainly, ...
Relative intra-day cumulative volume is intra-day cumulative volume divided by final total volume. If intra-day cumulative volume is modeled as a Cox (doubly stochastic Poisson) point process, then using initial enlargement ...
Quantum walks are very useful tools in designing quantum algorithms. Amplitude amplification is a key technique to increase the success probability of a quantum-walk-based algorithm, and it is quadratically faster than ...
Internationalisation is an important but contentious issue in higher education. For some it means the facilitation of student mobility and an important source of funding for universities, while for others it forms a ...

The main characteristic of a forced single-degree-of-freedom weakly nonlinear system is determined by its primary, super- and sub-harmonic resonances. A nonlinear parametric feedback control is proposed to modify the ...
Background The relation between respiratory illnesses in early life and the development of asthma and atopy in childhood is incompletely understood. Objective We sought to examine the relationship between respiratory ...
In 1991, Peres and Wootters wrote a seminal paper on the nonlocal processing of quantum information [Phys. Rev. Lett. 66, 1119 (1991)]. We return to their classic problem and solve it in various contexts. Specifically, for ...
For rigid-plastic/rigid-viscoplastic (RP/RVP) FE simulation in metal forming processes, the linear programming
(LP) approach has many remarkable advantages, compared with a normal iterative solver.
This approach is free ...
