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, ...
Network modeling can be approached using either discriminative or probabilistic
models. In the task of link prediction a probabilistic model will give a probability
for the existence of a link; while in some scenarios ...
Lewis' and Leep's bounds on the level and sublevel of quaternion algebras are extended to the class of composition algebras. Some simple constructions of composition algebras of known level values are given. In addition, ...
In [O'S], the level and sublevel of composition algebras are studied, wherein these quantities are determined for those algebras defined over local fields. In this paper, the level and sublevel of composition algebras, of ...
An observational study was carried out, using data collected from four areas in the Irish midlands, between 1989 and 2004, to critically evaluate the long-term effects of proactive badger culling and to provide insights ...
Background: Determining sample sizes for metabolomic experiments is important but due to the complexity of these experiments, there are currently no standard methods for sample size estimation in metabolomics. Since pilot ...
A new family of mixture models for the model-based clustering of longitudinal data is introduced.
The covariance structures of eight members of this new family of models are given and the associated maximum likelihood ...
In recent years, work has been carried out on clustering gene expression microarray data. Some approaches are developed from an algorithmic viewpoint whereas others are developed via the application of mixture models. In ...
Let LN+1 be a linear differential operator of order N + 1 with constant coefficients
and real eigenvalues λ 1, ..., λ N+1, let E( N+1) be the space of all C∞-solutions of
LN+1 on the real line.We show that for N 2 and ...
The dynamics of non-divergent flow on a rotating sphere are described by the conservation of absolute vorticity. The
analytical study of the non-linear barotropic vorticity equation is greatly facilitated by the expansion ...
We consider a problem of mixed Cauchy type for certain holomorphic partial differential
operators with the principal part Q2p(D) essentially being the (complex) Laplace operator to
a power, Δp. We provide inital data on ...
Ostrowski showed that there are intimate connections between the gap structure of a Taylor series and the behaviour of its partial sums outside the disk of convergence. This paper investigates the corresponding problem for ...
Methods of Padè approximation are used to analyse a multivariate
Markov transform which has been recently introduced by the authors.
The first main result is a characterization of the rationality of the
Markov transform ...
