Background: There has been no longitudinal study of the relation between concurrent exposure to dust mite allergen and endotoxin in early life and asthma and atopy at school age. Objectives: To examine the relation ...
In this paper, it is demonstrated that an extension to the exponential power family allows for robustness
characteristics for the normal location parameter problem, previously thought to be restricted to the Student-t
and ...
Organizational bilevel decision-making often involves uncertain factors. The parameters shown in a bilevel programming model, either in the objective functions or constraints, are thus often imprecise, which is called the ...
Kth-best approach is one of the three popular and workable approaches for linear bilevel programming. However, it could not well deal with a linear bilevel programming problem when the constraint functions at the Upper-level ...
Kuhn-Tucker approach has been applied with remarkable success in linear bilevel programming (BLP). However, it still has some extent unsatisfactory and incomplete. One principle challenges is that it could not well handle ...

In 1987 Knopfmacher and Knopfmacher published new infinite product expansions for real numbers 0 < A < 1 and A > 1. They called these expansions Engel product expansions. At that time they had difficulty finding rational ...
We investigate the extension of binning methodology to fast computation of several auxiliary quantities that arise in local polynomial smoothing. Examples include degrees of freedom measures, cross-validation functions, ...
The fast synchronization of directionally coupled chaotic systems under a chained interaction topology is studied by applying finite-time stability theory. It is shown that all chaotic systems can achieve synchronization ...
This paper studies the fast synchronization of directionally coupled chaotic systems under a chained interaction topology. Firstly, by applying finite-time stability theory, it is shown that all chaotic systems can achieve ...
To construct the model of gene expression using microarray techniques can reveal the regulation rules from the gene expression profiles. From S-system model, it is able to analyze the regulatory system dynamics. However, ...
Data mining is the most commonly used name to solve problems by analyzing data already present in databases. Feature selection is an important problem in the emerging field of data mining which is aimed at finding a small ...

This paper develops inference for the significance of features such as peaks and valleys observed in additive modeling through an extension of the SiZer-type methodology of Chaudhuri and Marron (1999) and Godtliebsen et ...
One of the fundamental motivations for feature selection is to overcome the curse of dimensionality problem. This paper presents a novel feature selection method utilizing a combination of differential evolution (DE) ...

Given an elevated prevalence of respiratory disease and density of pollution sources, residents of Roxbury, Massachusetts, have been interested in better understanding their exposures to air pollution. To determine whether ...
This paper studies Heath-Jarrow-Morton-type models with regime-switching stochastic volatility. In this setting the forward rate volatility is allowed to depend on the current forward rate curve as well as on a continuous ...
When applying structural equation modeling methods, such as partial least squares (PLS) path modeling, in empirical studies, the assumption that the data have been collected from a single homogeneous population is often ...
