We begin with some simple questions. What is the distribution of the product of given powers of independent continuous uniform random variables? Is this distribution useful? Are there some test statistics with this distribution? Is this distribution somehow related to the distribution of the product of other random variables? Is this distribution already(More)
Improved myocardium-blood contrast by myocardial suppression resulting from T1 rho-weighting in contrast-enhanced, gradient-echo, bright-blood cine images, acquired at 1.5T, is shown. In the standard images, blood has twice the intensity of muscle. In similar T1 rho-weighted images, it has 3-4 times the intensity of muscle. A composite spin-lock pulse(More)

Control charts are effective tools for signal detection in both manufacturing processes and service processes. Much of the data in service industries comes from processes having nonnormal or unknown distributions. The commonly used Shewhart variable control charts, which depend heavily on the normality assumption, are not appropriately used here. In this(More)
