  • Hurn, M; Green, Peter; Al-Awadhi, F (Blackwell Publishing, 2008)
    The Sloan digital sky survey is an extremely large astronomical survey that is conducted with the intention of mapping more than a quarter of the sky. Among the data that it is generating are spectroscopic and photometric ...
  • Coull, Brent; Mezzetti, Maura; Ryan, Louise (Springer, 2003)
    This article uses a Bayesian hierarchical model to quantify the adverse health effects associated with in-utero exposure to methylmercury. By allowing for study-to-study as well as outcome-to-outcome variability, the ...
  • Geweke, John (Blackwell Publishing, 2001)
    Abstract: Recent advances in simulation methods have made possible the systematic application of Bayesian methods to support decision making with econometric models. This paper outlines the key elements of Bayesian ...
  • Geweke, John; Gowrisankaran, G.; Town, R.J. (Blackwell Publishing, 2003)
    This paper develops new econometric methods to infer hospital quality in a model with discrete dependent variables and nonrandom selection. Mortality rates in patient discharge records are widely used to infer hospital ...
  • Bonevich, J. E.; Armstrong, N. G.; Cline, J. P.; Kalceff, W. (US Government Printing Office, 2004)
    A single-step, self-contained method for determining the crystallite-size distribution and shape from experimental x-ray line profile data is presented. It is shown that the crystallite-size distribution can be determined ...
  • Mccausland, William; Lgui, Brahim (Emerald, 2009)
    Time-varying proportions arise frequently in economics. Market shares show the relative importance of firms in a market. Labor economists divide populations into different labor market segments. Expenditure shares describe ...
  • Lei, Gang; Shao, Ke; Li, Yabin; Yang, Guangyuan; Guo, Youguang; Zhu, Jianguo; Lavers, J (IEEE, 2009)
    Using Gaussian numerical integration formula, the problem of estimating the particle size distribution (PSD) in ferrofluids can be converted into an electromagnetic inverse problem. Then we present two Bayesian analytical ...

  • Momani, Mohammad Mahmoud (2008)
    Security and trust are two interdependent concepts and are often used interchangeably when defining a secure wireless sensor network (WSN) system. However, security is different from trust in that, it assumes no node is ...
  • Gerlach, Richard; Professor Ronald Geoffrey Bird, Ronald (Feng Chia University, 2006)
    Simple financial ratios such as book-to-market are often used to identify value stocks. This paper examines the extent to which fundamental accounting information can be used to better identify truly undervalued value ...
  • Morales, Knashawn; Ibrahim, Joseph; Chen, Chien-Jen; Ryan, Louise (American Statistical Association, 2006)
    An important component of quantitative risk assessment involves characterizing the dose-response relationship between an environmental exposure and adverse health outcome and then computing a benchmark dose, or the exposure ...
  • Lau, Jw; Green, Peter (Amer Statistical Assoc, 2006)
    This paper establishes a general framework for Bayesian model-based clustering, in which subset labels are exchangeable, and items are also exchangeable, possibly up to covariate e?ects. It is rich enough to encompass a ...
  • Geweke, John (American Economic Association, 2007)
    Bayesian econometrics provides a tidy theory and practical methods of comparing and combining several alternative, completely specified models for a common data set. It is always possible that none of the specified models ...
  • Zhang, Guangquan; Bai, Chenggang; Lu, Jie; Zhang, Chengqi (Macquarie Scientific Publishing, 2004)
  • Nguyen Thanh, Son; Nguyen, Hung; Taylor, Philip (IEEE, 2006)
    Head movement is one of the most effective hands-free control modes for powered wheelchairs. It provides the necessary mobility assistance to severely disabled people and can be used to replace the joystick directly. In ...
  • Nguyen, Hai; Nguyen, Jordan; Nguyen, Hung (IEEE, 2008)
    This paper is concerned with the estimation of freespace based on a Bayesian recursive (BR) algorithm for an autonomous wheelchair using stereoscopic cameras by severely disabled people. A stereo disparity map processed ...
  • Mardia, Kanti; Nyirongo, Vysaul; Green, Peter; Gold, Nicola; Westhead, David (Biomed Central Ltd, 2007)
    Background: Matching functional sites is a key problem for the understanding of protein function and evolution. The commonly used graph theoretic approach, and other related approaches, require adjustment of a matching ...
  • Cetin, U.; Novikov, Alex; Shiryaev, Albert (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
    We solve explicitly a Bayesian sequential estimation problem for the drift parameter of a fractional Brownian motion under the assumptions that a prior density of is Gaussian and that a penalty function is quadratic or ...
  • Choy, Sai Tsang Boris; Chan, C (University of Western Sydeny, 2005)
    This paper considers a Student-t stochastic volatility (SV) model using full Bayesian approach. A new two-stage scale mixtures respresentation for the Student-t density is proposed and used to speed up the efficiency of ...
  • Tao, Dacheng; Song, Mingli; Li, Xuelong; Shen, Jialie; Sun, Jimeng; Wu, Xindong; Faloutsos, Christos; Maybank, Stephen (IEEE-Inst Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2008)
    Effectively modeling a collection of three-dimensional (3-D) faces is an important task in various applications, especially facial expression-driven ones, e.g., expression generation, retargeting, and synthesis. These 3-D ...
