Energy vs the environment
(Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, 1981-01-01)
Optimal development programs that explicitly account for the environment impacts of extracting energy resources are analyzed. Possibilities of storing the resources above ground once it has been extracted are examined When ...
Comparative performance of multiview stereoscopic and mammographic display modalities for breast lesion detection.
(Med Phys, 2011-04)
PURPOSE: Mammography is known to be one of the most difficult radiographic exams to interpret. Mammography has important limitations, including the superposition of normal tissue that can obscure a mass, chance alignment ...
TIRED OF PREJUDICE: THE SELF-REGULATORY EFFECT OF DISCRIMINATION ON HEALTH-RELATED BEHAVIORS
(ANNALS OF BEHAVIORAL MEDICINE, 2010-04)
Bayesian Analysis of Latent Threshold Dynamic Models
(Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, 2013-04-01)
We discuss a general approach to dynamic sparsity modeling in multivariate time series analysis. Time-varying parameters are linked to latent processes that are thresholded to induce zero values adaptively, providing natural ...
Barnacle cement: a polymerization model based on evolutionary concepts.
(J Exp Biol, 2009-11)
Enzymes and biochemical mechanisms essential to survival are under extreme selective pressure and are highly conserved through evolutionary time. We applied this evolutionary concept to barnacle cement polymerization, a ...
Deposition of silver nanoparticles in geochemically heterogeneous porous media: predicting affinity from surface composition analysis.
(Environ Sci Technol, 2011-06-15)
The transport of uncoated silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in a porous medium composed of silica glass beads modified with a partial coverage of iron oxide (hematite) was studied and compared to that in a porous medium composed ...
Bayesian Spatial Quantile Regression.
(J Am Stat Assoc, 2011-03)
Tropospheric ozone is one of the six criteria pollutants regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act and has been linked with several adverse health effects, including mortality. ...
Efficient selection of disambiguating actions for stereo vision
(Proceedings of the 22nd Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence, UAI 2006, 2006-12-01)
In many domains that involve the use of sensors, such as robotics or sensor networks, there are opportunities to use some form of active sensing to disambiguate data from noisy or unreliable sensors. These disambiguating ...
An efficient finite element method for embedded interface problems
(International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, 2009-04-09)
A stabilized finite element method based on the Nitsche technique for enforcing constraints leads to an efficient computational procedure for embedded interface problems. We consider cases in which the jump of a field across ...
The role of binocular vision in primate locomotion.
