The Agincourt Health and Demographic Surveillance System has since 2001 conducted a biannual household asset survey in order to quantify household socio-economic status (SES) in a rural population living in northeast South ...
Many model-based clustering methods are based on a finite Gaussian mixture model. The Gaussian mixture model implies that the data scatter within each group is elliptically shaped. Hence non-elliptical groups are often ...
It is well-known that if T is a Dm–Dn bimodule map on the m×n complex matrices, then T is a Schur multiplier and kTkcb = kTk. If n = 2 and T is merely assumed to be a right D2-module map, then we show that kTkcb = kTk. ...
The Expectation–Maximization (EM) algorithm is a popular tool in a wide variety of statistical settings, in particular in the maximum likelihood estimation of parameters when clustering using mixture models. A serious ...

In this paper we discuss convergence properties and error estimates of rational
Bernstein operators introduced by P. Pit¸ul and P. Sablonni`ere. It is shown that the
rational Bernstein operators converge to the identity ...
Let $ f$ be a holomorphic function on the unit disc, and let $ (S_{n_{k}})$ be a subsequence of its Taylor polynomials about 0. It is shown that the nontangential limit of $ f$ and lim $ _{k\rightarrow \infty }S_{n_{k}}$ ...
We obtain conditions on a JB∗-algebra X so that the canonical embedding of X into its associated quasi-invertible manifold has dense range. We prove that if a JB∗ -triple has this density condition then the quasi-invertible ...
We present a systematic derivation of the Biot-Savart equation from the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, in the limit when the curvature radius of vortex lines and the intervortex distance are much greater than the vortex ...
The known proofs for universal Taylor series do not determine a specific universal
Taylor series. In the present paper, we isolate a specific universal Taylor series by
modifying the proof in [30]. Thus we determine all ...
The p* model is widely used in social network analysis. The likelihood of a network under this model is impossible to calculate for all but trivially small networks. Various approximation have been presented in the literature, ...
In a longitudinal metabolomics study, multiple metabolites are measured from several observations at many time points. Interest lies in reducing the dimensionality of such data and in highlighting influential metabolites ...
Since the proposition of the social integration theory by Émile Durkheim, macro-sociological changes have been speculated to affect suicide rates. This study investigates the effect of the First World War on Irish suicide ...
The method of Regional Climate Modelling (RCM) was employed to assess the impacts of a warming climate on the mid-21st-century climate of Ireland. The RCM simulations were run at high spatial resolution, up to 4 km, thus ...
Mycobacterium bovis infects the wildlife species badgers Meles meles who are linked with the spread of the associated disease tuberculosis (TB) in cattle. Control of livestock infections depends in part on the spatial and ...
It is known that, for any simply connected proper subdomain Ω of the complex plane and any point ζ in Ω, there are holomorphic functions on Ω that possess “universal” Taylor series expansions about ζ; that is, partial sums ...
Irish elections use a voting system called proportion representation by means of a single transferable vote(PR-STV). Under this system, voters express their vote by ranking some (or all) of the candidates in order of ...
The development of computer models for numerical simulation of the atmosphere
and oceans is one of the great scientific triumphs of the past fifty years. These
models have added enormously to our understanding of the ...
Let Ω be a simply connected proper subdomain of the complex plane and z0 be a point in Ω. It is known that there are holomorphic functions f on Ω for which the partial sums (Sn(f,z0)) of the Taylor series about z0 have ...
We consider the Goursat problem in the plane for partial differential operators whose principal part is the pth power of the standard Laplace operator. The data is posed on a union of 2p distinct lines through the origin. ...
