We present a simple semiparametric model for tting subject-speci c curves for longitudinal data. Individual curves are modelled as penalized splines with random coe cients. This model has a mixed model representation, ...
Evaluating network reliability is an important topic in the planning, designing, and control of network systems. In this paper, an intuitive heuristic algorithm is developed to find all minimal paths (NIP) by adding a path, ...
A simple portable light meter for use with fiber-optic microprobes was developed. The meter has a flat spectral quantum responsivity for 400 to 700 nm light (photosynthetically available radiation, PAR). With scalar ...

A family of prior distributions for covariance matrices is studied. Members of the family possess the attractive property of all standard deviation and correlation parameters being marginally noninformative for particular ...
A MP/minimal cutset (MC) is a path/cut set such that if any edge is removed from this path/cut set, then the remaining set is no longer a path/cut set. An intuitive method is proposed to evaluate the reliability in terms ...
In this paper, a modified direct torque control (DTC) for permanent-magnet synchronous machines, which enables important torque- and flux-ripple reduction by using voltage vectors with variable amplitude and angle, is ...
Many real-world systems are multistate systems composed of multistate components in which the reliability can be computed in terms of minimal path (MP) vectors to level d (named d- MPs). Such systems (electric power, ...

Estimation of evapotranspiration from a crop field is of great importance for detecting crop water status and proper irrigation scheduling. The Penman-Monteith equation is widely viewed as the best method to estimate ...
The weighted multicommodity multistate unreliable network (WMMUN) is a novel network composed of multistate unreliable components (arcs and nodes) capable of transmitting different types of commodities in which capacity ...
The mechanisms and kinetics of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) release from woody materials (pine, hardwood and compost) under non-equilibrium leaching conditions was examined through batch and column tests. Mechanistically ...
A ratiometric luminescence intensity imaging approach is presented, which enables spatial O2 measurements in biofilm reactors with transparent planar O2 optodes. Optodes consist of an O2 sensitive luminescent dye immobilized ...

We have established a plasmid-based system that enables tightly controlled gene expression and the generation of GFP fusion proteins in Staphylococcus aureus simply and rapidly. This system takes advantage of an Escherichia ...
Abstract: A simple quasi-2D model for the temperature distribution in a graphite tube furnace is presented. The model is used to estimate the temperature gradients in the furnace at temperatures above which contact sensors ...
An integrated suite of synthesis and characterisation techniques that includes synchrotron-based single crystal, powder X-ray diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance and electron diffraction have been employed to uncover ...

A simple test for heteroscedastic disturbances in a linear regression model is developed using the framework of the Lagrangian multiplier test. For a wide range of heteroscedastic and random coefficient specifications, the ...
Many real-world systems (such as cellular telephones, transportation, etc.) are Multi-state Node Networks (MNNs) that are composed of multi-state nodes with different states determined by a set of nodes receiving the signal ...
Evaluating network reliability is an important topic in planning, designing, and control of systems, and the minimal-path (MP) set is one of the fundamental tools for evaluating network reliability. A straightforward and ...
