We derive the asymptotic bias and variance of the penalized quasilikelihood (PQL) estimator of the cluster-level covariate effect in generalized linear mixed models for group-randomized trials where the number of clusters ...
Pharmaceutical companies and governmental regulatory agencies are becoming increasingly aware of the need for improved statistical methods for developmental toxicity experiments. Although a number of statisticians have ...
We analyze a class of quantum operations based on a geometrical representation of d-level quantum system (or qudit for short). A sufficient and necessary condition of complete positivity, expressed in terms of the quantum ...
We establish a theory of quantum-to-classical rate distortion coding. In this setting, a sender Alice has many copies of a quantum information source. Her goal is to transmit a classical description of the source, obtained ...
Quasi-Monte Carlo methods are used to approximate integrals of high dimensionality. However, if the problem under consideration is of unbounded dimensionality, it is not obvious if one can apply quasi-Monte Carlo methods ...
Kuo, F.; Dunsmuir, W.; Sloan, I.; Womersley, R.; Wand, Matt(Springer New York LLC, 2008)
Highly structured generalised response models, such as generalised linear mixed models and generalised linear models for time series regression, have become an indispensable vehicle for data analysis and inference in many ...
We apply quasi-Monte Carlo methods to the pricing of derivatives on realised variance of an index under the benchmark approach. The resulting integration problem is shown to depend on the joint density of the realised ...
Dynamic displacement and acceleration responses of cars with uncertain parameters under random road input excitations are investigated by using a quarter-car model. Based on the theory of random vibration, the vehicle's ...
Of 86 patients entered in an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) random Phase II study of mitoxantrone (DHAD) and cisplatin (DDP) in primary liver cancer, 69 were eligible. Nine of the 13 ineligible patients were ...
This paper develops a framework to measure the exposure to systematic risk for pools of asset securitizations and measures empirically whether current ratings-based rules for regulatory capital of securitizations under ...

Research into tertiary students' first year experience in Australia
has focused on the extent to which students adapt to university and their levels
of satisfaction, how students adjust to the larger social setting, and ...
Torsion is one of the primary actions in members curved in space, and so an accurate spatially curved-beam element needs to be able to predict the elasto-plastic torsional behaviour of such members correctly. However, there ...
In this survey on last passage times, we propose a new viewpoint which provides a unified approach to many different results which appear in the mathematical finance literature and in the theory of stochastic processes. ...
This paper considers a modified constant elasticity of variance (MCEV) model. This model uses the familiar constant elasticity of variance form for the volatility of the growth optimal portfolio (GOP) in a continuous market. ...

This is an expository paper which explores a variety of epidemiological and other quantitative approaches to research in endocrinology. It is a sample of some of the projects in which the author and his colleagues, including ...
Recently, some quantum algorithms have been implemented by quantum adiabatic evolutions. In this Letter, we discuss the accurate relation between the running time and the distance of the initial state and the final state ...
Phthalates are industrial chemicals widely used in many commercial applications. The general population is exposed to phthalates through consumer products as well as through diet and medical treatments. To determine ...
