This paper introduces a variant of random utility choice models based on mixed probability density functions, hence the adopted moniker ?k-Mix models.? Mixed pdf?s contain components with the usual continuous density ...
Despite the widespread popularity of linear models for correlated outcomes (e.g., linear mixed models and time series models), distribution diagnostic methodology remains relatively underdeveloped in this context. In this ...
BACKGROUND: An increased frequency of major limb malformations, especially terminal transverse limb defects, have been described in several studies of birth defects in children who had been exposed to the prenatal diagnosis ...

The demographics are unequivocal and undisputed. Over the last thirty years, average life expectancy in Australia has been steadily rising (every year it increases by more than three months) while birth rates have been ...

We consider quantum computations comprising only commuting gates, known as IQP computations, and provide compelling evidence that the task of sampling their output probability distributions is unlikely to be achievable ...
Classifying monoclonal antibodies, based on the similarity of their binding to the proteins (antigens) on the surface of blood cells, is essential for progress in immunology, hematology and clinical medicine. The collaborative ...
Traditional combinatory logic uses combinators S and K to represent all Turing-computable functions on natural numbers, but there are Turing-computable functions on the combinators themselves that cannot be so represented, ...
A three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) for the analysis of plane wave diffraction by a bi-periodic slab is described and implemented. A scattering matrix formalism based on the FEM allows the efficient treatment ...
The classical statistical paradigm emphasizes the development and application of methods to account for sampling variability. Many modern day applications, however, require consideration of other sources of uncertainty ...

Background: Epidemiology frequently relies on surrogates of long-term exposures, often either individual-level short-term measurements or group-level based on long-term characteristics of subjects and their environment. ...
The notion of quantum weakest precondition was introduced by D'Hondt and P. Panangaden [E. D'Hondt, P. Panangaden, Quantum weakest preconditions, Mathematical Structures in Computer Science 16 (2006) 429-451], and they ...

We prove, in a multipartite setting, that it is always feasible to exactly transform a genuinely m-partite entangled pure state with sufficient many copies to any other m-partite state via local quantum operation and ...
This study investigated the changes in electroencephalography (EEG) activity in train drivers during a monotonous train-driving session. Four combinations of EEG activities were also compared to investigate the difference ...
This paper describes an empirical comparison of the performance of four designs for a discrete choice experiment. These designs were chosen to represent the range of construction techniques that are currently popular for ...
Abstract: The approximate slopes of several tests of the independence of two covariance stationary time series are derived and compared. It is shown that the approximate slopes of regression tests are at least as great as ...

This paper provides comparative theoretical and numerical results on risks, values, and hedging
strategies for local risk-minimization versus mean-variance hedging in a class of stochastic volatility
models. We explain ...
We compare two different multilevel modelling approaches to the analysis of repeated measures data to assess the effect of mother level characteristics on women's use of prenatal care services in Uttar Pradesh, India. We ...
Necessary and sufficient global optimality conditions are presented for certain nonconvex minimization problems subject to inequality constraints that are expressed as the pointwise minimum of sublinear (MSL) functions. A ...
