The paper presents a priority algorithm for the maximum lateness problem with parallel identical processors, presedence constraints, and preemptions. The presented algorithm calculates the priority of each task by constructing ...
Objective: To examine the efficacy of a combination of 4 blood markers of alcohol use in detecting alcohol-abusing pregnant women. Study design: Two new markers of alcohol use, whole blood-associated acetaldehyde and ...
We study various axioms of discrete probabilistic choice, measuring how restrictive they are, both alone and in the presence of other axioms, given a specific class of prior distributions over a complete collection of ...
Inconsistency of multi-perspective requirements specifications is a pervasive issue during the requirements process. However, managing inconsistency is not just a pure technical problem. It is always associated with a ...
The classical Lucas-Lehmer test gives necessary and sufficient conditions for the primality of 2 p -1, p an odd prime. Such primes are called Mersenne primes. Here, taking b = 2 and a = 3 to be integers, and p to be an odd ...
Safety assessment for noncancer health effects generally has been based upon dividing a no observed adverse effect (NOAEL) by uncertainty (safety) factors to provide an acceptable daily intake (ADI) or reference dose (RfD). ...
This model incorporates technical trading rules (TTRs) that extract information from the price, allowing the users to benefit from the information. Sustainable profits are possible as long as the price movements reflect ...
Associations between patient characteristics and survival were inves tigated in 432 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. Those patients were prospective!}' studied by the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, and each ...
Enlarging upon work of Nicorovici, McPhedran & Milton (Nicorovici et al. 1994 Phys. Rev. B 49(12), 8479-8482), a rigorous proof is given that in the quasistatic regime a cylindrical superlens can successfully image a dipole ...
Molenberghs and Ryan (1996) proposed a likelihood-based model for clustered. binary data, based on a multivariate exponential family model (Cox, 1972). The model benefits from the elegance and simplicity of exponential ...
The primary goal of this article is to determine benchmark doses based on the ethylene glycol study, which comprises data from a developmental toxicity study in mice. Because the data involve a vector of malformation ...
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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
