Large discrepancies exist among current classical theories for the in-plane buckling of arches that are subjected to a constant-directed radial load uniformly distributed around the arch axis. Discrepancies also exist ...
This paper presents an input-dependent neural network (IDNN) with variable parameters. The parameters of the neurons in the hidden nodes adapt to changes of the input environment, so that different test input sets separately ...
This paper considers a class of Lur'e descriptor systems (LDS) subject to exogenous disturbances. The concept of input-to-state stability (ISS) is generalized to descriptor systems. Such a notion characterizes the robust ...
An integral tree is a tree whose adjacency matrix has only integer eigenvalues. While most previous work by other authors has been focused either on the very restricted case of balanced trees or on finding trees with ...
This paper investigates two variants of a Keynesian model of monetary growth with sluggish price and quantity adjustments. The first model integrates the real growth dynamics of Rose's employment cycle, an inflationary ...
The teratogenicity of maternal epilepsy has been attributed to several factors, including the antiepileptic drugs taken to prevent seizures during pregnancy, the occurrence of seizures during pregnancy, and the factors in ...
Customer classification is one of the major tasks in customer relationship management. Customers often have both static characteristics and dynamic behavioral features. Using both kinds of data to conduct comprehensive ...

Abstract: The mixture model likelihood function is invariant with respect to permutation of the components of the mixture. If functions of interest are permutation sensitive, as in classification applications, then ...
Abstract: The use of the likelihood ratio statistic in testing the goodness of fit of the exploratory factor model has no formal justification when, as is often the case in practice, the usual regularity conditions are not ...
In this paper I analyze investors? reactions to changes in the expense ratios of equity mutual funds. I show that investment ?ows? response to fees cannot be fully explained by looking at investors? performance sensitivity. ...
In this paper I analyze investors' reactions to changes in the expense ratios of equity mutual funds. I show that investment flows' response to fees cannot be fully explained by looking at investors' performance sensitivity. ...

Although H+ and OH are the most common ions in aqueous media, they are not usually observable in capillary electrophoresis (CE) experiments, because of the extensive use of buffer solutions as the background electrolyte. ...
Single-product oligopolies are examined with uncertain isoelastic price functions and linear cost functions. Each firm wants to maximize its expected profit and also wants to minimize its uncertainty by minimizing the ...

The Mantel-Haenszel test provides a straightforwdd method to combine results from several clinical trials when only summary information, such as the proportion of deaths, is available for each trial. More efficient tests, ...
A new polynomial-time iterative algorithm is presented for the scheduling problem with a unit execution time task
system, parallel identical processors, precedence constraints, release times, and the criterion of maximum ...
The paper describes the use of a longitudinal tobit model to characterize cognitive decline over a 13-year period in a cohort of 2087 elderly Australians. Use of a tobit formulation allows for the so-called `ceiling effect? ...
