A Single-Subject Method to Detect Pathways Enriched With Alternatively Spliced Genes
Participants in White et al.’s (1) study performed a semantic categorization task while viewing pairs of words presented simultaneously to the right and left of fixation. On each trial, participants viewed two briefly ...
Probability of ruin in discrete insurance risk model with dependent Pareto claims
We present basic properties and discuss potential insurance applications of a new class of probability distributions on positive integers with power law tails. The distributions in this class are zero-inflated discrete ...
A note on transportation cost inequalities for diffusions with reflections
We prove that reflected Brownian motion with normal reflections in a convex domain satisfies a dimension free Talagrand type transportation cost-information inequality. The result is generalized to other reflected diffusion ...
A 3D Numerical Study of Interface Effects Influencing Viscous Gravity Currents in a Parabolic Fissure, with Implications for Modeling with 1D Nonlinear Diffusion Equations
Although one-dimensional non-linear diffusion equations are commonly used to model flow dynamics in aquifers and fissures, they disregard multiple effects of real-life flows. Similarity analysis may allow further analytical ...
Quantifying the signature of sediment composition on the topologic and dynamic complexity of river delta channel networks and inferences toward delta classification
(Geophysical Research Letters, 2016)
Deltas contain complex self-organizing channel networks that nourish the surface with sediment and nutrients. Developing a quantitative understanding of how controlling physical mechanisms of delta formation relate to the ...
Delta channel networks: 2. Metrics of topologic and dynamic complexity for delta comparison, physical inference, and vulnerability assessment
(Water Resources Research, 2015)
Deltas are landforms that deliver water, sediment and nutrient fluxes from upstream rivers to the deltaic surface and eventually to oceans or inland water bodies via multiple pathways. Despite their importance, quantitative ...
Delta channel networks: 1. A graph-theoretic approach for studying connectivity and steady state transport on deltaic surfaces
(Water Resources Research, 2015)
River deltas are intricate landscapes with complex channel networks that self-organize to deliver water, sediment, and nutrients from the apex to the delta top and eventually to the coastal zone. The natural balance of ...
Fluid flows of mixed regimes in porous media
In porous media, there are three known regimes of fluid flows, namely, pre-Darcy, Darcy, and post-Darcy. Because of their different natures, these are usually treated separately in the literature. To study complex flows ...
Certain bivariate distributions and random processes connected with maxima and minima
The minimum and the maximum of t independent, identically distributed random variables have (F) over bar (t) and F-t for their survival (minimum) and the distribution (maximum) functions, where (F) over bar = 1 - F and F ...
Sleep Apnea and Hypoventilation in Patients with Down Syndrome: Analysis of 144 Polysomnogram Studies
Patients with Down syndrome (DS) are at risk for both obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and central sleep apnea (CSA)
