n this paper we survey recent results about Fischer decomposi-
tions of polynomials or entire functions and their applications to holomorphic
partial di erential equations. We discuss Cauchy and Goursat problems for ...
This paper proposes a new probabilistic classification algorithm using a Markov random field approach. The joint distribution of class labels is explicitly modelled using the distances between feature vectors. Intuitively, ...
Item response modelling is a well established method for analysing ordinal response data. Ordinal data are typically collected as responses to a number
of questions or items. The observed data can be viewed as discrete ...
Ranked preference data arise when a set of judges rank, in order of their preference, a set of objects. Such data arise in preferential voting systems and market
research surveys. Covariate data associated with the judges ...

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 ...
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, ...
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 ...
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. ...

The spectrum of atmospheric motions is vast, encompassing phenomena having periods ranging
from seconds to millennia. The motions of interest to the forecaster typically have time-scales of a day or longer, but the ...
The question of which quadratic forms become isotropic when extended to the function field of a given form is studied. A formula for the minimum dimension of the minimal isotropic forms associated to such extensions is ...
In Ireland and in the UK, bovine tuberculosis(bTB) infects cattle and wildlife badgers (Meles meleslinnaeus) and badgers contribute to the spread of the disease in cattle. Isotropic and anisotropic spatio-temporalmodels ...
The main result of the paper states the following: Let ψ be a polynomial
in n variables of degree t: Suppose that there exists a constant C > 0 such
that any polynomial f has a polynomial decomposition f = ψ qf + hf ...
A filtering integration scheme is developed, using a modification of the contour
used to invert the Laplace transform (LT). It is shown to eliminate components
with frequencies higher than a specified cut-off value. Thus ...
In this paper we combine the Laplace transform (LT) scheme with a semi-
Lagrangian advection scheme, and implement it in a shallow water model. It
is compared to a reference model using the semi-implicit (SI) scheme, ...
