Laser microspectrofluorometry for the diagnosis of atherosclerosis
Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death in the U.S., and atherosclerosis, the principle cause of myocardial and cerebral infarctions, accounts for most of these deaths. In current clinical practice, cholesterol ...
Interprocedural pointer analysis for C
Many powerful code optimization techniques rely on accurate information connecting the definitions and uses of values in a program. This information is difficult to produce for programs written with pointer-based languages ...
Sapling growth and recruitment as affected by flooding and canopy gap formation in a river floodplain forest in southeast Texas
I used sapling population data collected since 1980 to investigate how canopy disturbance interacts with chronic understory disturbance to determine regeneration patterns. I reconstructed flooding history using a combination ...
Analysis and interpretation of gamma-ray burst continuum spectral evolution with BATSE data
Once a day, a flash of gamma-rays erupts somewhere in space and is detected by an international fleet of satellites. Since their first detection over a quarter century ago, these gamma-ray bursts have puzzled researchers ...
Prediction of fatigue life in relation to surface finish parameters
One can safely claim that not one single surface roughness parameter, in terms of completely characterizing a surface, can be exhaustive. This study is both an experimental and theoretical study of characterizing surface ...
Mixed finite element methods for variably saturated subsurface flow
The flow of water through variably saturated subsurface media is commonly modeled by Richards' equation, a nonlinear and possibly degenerate partial differential equation. Due to the nonlinearities, this equation is difficult ...
HISTOGRAM ESTIMATORS OF BIVARIATE DENSITIES (MULTIVARIATE, STATISTICS)
One-dimensional fixed-interval histogram estimators of univariate probability density functions are less efficient than the analogous variable-interval estimators which are constructed from intervals whose lengths are ...
NONPARAMETRIC MODE ESTIMATION FOR HIGHER DIMENSIONAL DENSITIES
In this study a family of estimators is developed for local maxima, or modes, of a multivariate probability density function. The mode estimators are computationally feasible iterative optimization procedures utilizing ...
