Estimating cumulative incidence functions when the life distributions are constrained
(Academic Press, 2010055)In competing risks studies, the KaplanMeier estimators of the distribution functions (DFs) of lifetimes and the corresponding estimators of cumulative incidence functions (CIFs) are used widely when no prior information ... 
A class of stationary random fields with a simple correlation structure
(Academic Press, 20040715)A stationary random field is often more complicated than a univariate stationary time series, since dependence for a random field extends in all directions, while there is only the natural distinction of past and future ... 
Application of the limit of truncated isotonic regression in optimization subject to isotonic and bounding constraints
(Academic Press Inc., 20020525)An isotonic regression truncated by confining its domain to a union of its level sets is the isotonic regression in the reduced function space. When some of the weights with which the inner product system is defined go to ... 
A strong law of large numbers for nonparametric regression
(Academic Press, 1989071)Suppose (i1,n, ..., in,n) is permutation of (1, ..., n) for each positive integer n such that the order of the indices {1, h., n  1} in the permutation corresponding to n  1 is preserved. If {Zn} is a sequence of meanzero ... 
Singularity among selfsimilar Gaussian random fields with different scaling parameters and others
(Taylor & Francis, 20181102)It is shown in this paper that the probability measures generated by selfsimilar Gaussian random fields are mutually singular, whenever they have different scaling parameters. So are those generated from a selfsimilar ... 
Kdifferenced vector random fields
(SIAM Publ., 2019)A thintailed vector random field, referred to as a Kdifferenced vector random field, is introduced. Its finitedimensional densities are the differences of two Besse! functions of second order, whenever they exist, and ... 
Inverse problem for onedimensional wave equation with matrix potential
(De Gruyter, 20190120)We prove a global uniqueness theorem of reconstruction of a matrixpotential a (x, t) {a(x,t)} of onedimensional wave equation □ u + a u = 0 {\square u+au=0}, x > 0, t > 0 {x>0,t>0}, □ = t 2  x 2 {\square=\partial{t}^ ... 
Unbiasedness of LRT on the homogeneity of means in MANOVA under general order restrictions
(Elsevier, 201905)In this paper a likelihood ratio test is developed through matrix projections for the hypothesis on the homogeneity of mean vectors in MANOVA. It is assumed that the mean vectors are under a general multivariate order ... 
Nonnegatively curved 6manifolds with almost maximal symmetry rank
(Springer Nature, 201901)We classify closed, simply connected, nonnegatively curved 6manifolds of almost maximal symmetry rank up to equivariant diffeomorphism. 
Timevarying isotropic vector random fields on compact twopoint homogeneous spaces
(Springer, 2018)A general form of the covariance matrix function is derived in this paper for a vector random field that is isotropic and mean square continuous on a compact connected twopoint homogeneous space and stationary on a temporal ... 
A pseudo restricted MLE under multivariate order restrictions and its algorithm
(Taylor & Francis, 20181221)It is shown in this paper that a quasi order for the vectors in Rp is a cone induced if and only if the order is preservable under limits and under linear combinations with nonnegative coefficients. For the mean vectors ... 
A forward branching phase space generator for hadron colliders
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 201810)In this paper we develop a projective phase space generator appropriate for hadron collider geometry. The generator integrates over bremsstrahlung events which project back to a single, fixed Born event. The projection is ... 
A comparison of some numerical conformal mapping methods for simply and multiply connected domains
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 201901)This paper compares some methods for computing conformal maps from simply and multiply connected domains bounded by circles to target domains bounded by smooth curves and curves with corners. We discuss the use of explicit ... 
Inverse source problems without (pseudo) convexity assumptions
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 201808)We study the inverse source problem for the Helmholtz equation from boundary Cauchy data with multiple wave numbers. The main goal of this paper is to study the uniqueness and increasing stability when the (pseudo)convexity ... 
Stress testing the vectorbosonfusion approximation in multijet final states
(American Physical Society, 20180822)We consider electroweak Higgs plus three jets production at NLO QCD beyond strict VBF acceptance cuts. We investigate, for the first time, how accurate the VBF approximation is in these regions and within perturbative ... 
Increasing stability in the two dimensional inverse source scattering problem with attenuation and many frequencies
(IOP Publishing, 20180822)In this paper, we investigate the interior inverse source problem for the Helmholtz equation with attenuation in the plane from boundary Cauchy data of multiple frequencies when the source term is assumed to be compactly ... 
Peakedness and convex ordering for elliptically contoured random fields
(Elsevier, 201812)For the peakedness comparison between two Gaussian random fields about their mean functions, a necessary and sufficient condition is derived in this paper in terms of their covariance functions. interestingly, such a ... 
Optically thin core accretion: how planets get their gas in nearly gasfree discs
(Oxford University Press, 20180511)Models of core accretion assume that in the radiative zones of accreting gas envelopes, radiation diffuses. But superEarths/subNeptunes (14 Rcircle plus, 220M(circle plus)) point to formation conditions that are ... 
On increasing stability in the two dimensional inverse source scattering problem with many frequencies
(IOP Publishing, 20180329)In this paper, we will study the increasing stability in the inverse source problem for the Helmholtz equation in the plane when the source term is assumed to be compactly supported in a bounded domain O with a sufficiently ... 
Programming quantum annealing computers using machine learning
(IEEE, 2017)Commercial quantum annealing (QA) machines are now being built with hundreds of quantum bits (qubits). These are used as analog computers, to solve optimization problems by annealing to an unknown ground state (the solution), ...
