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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
A grade of membership (GoM) model is an individual level mixture model which allows individuals have partial membership of the groups that characterize a population. A GoM model for rank data is developed to model the ...

Suppose that a harmonic function h on a finite cylinder vanishes on the curved part of the boundary. This paper answers a question of Khavinson by showing that h then has a harmonic continuation to the infinite strip bounded ...
There is a paucity of dynamically downscaled climate model output at a high resolution over Ireland, of temperature projections for the mid-21st century. This study aims to address this shortcoming. A preliminary investigation ...
Let F be a field of characteristic zero and let ft,n be the stabilization homomorphism Hn(SLt(F), Z) → Hn(SLt+1(F), Z). We prove the following results: For all n, ft,n is an isomorphism if t ≥ n + 1 and is surjective for ...
