Real-time traffic flow data across entire networks can be used in a traffic management system to monitor current traffic flows so that traffic can be directed and managed efficiently. Reliable short-term forecasting models of traffic flows are crucial for the success of any traffic management system. The model proposed in this paper for forecasting traffic(More)
For five years, we prospectively studied 353 consecutive patients undergoing first-time coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) for stable angina in the North of England. Angina was present before surgery in nearly all patients, in 20% 3 months after surgery, and in 48% after 60 months. The Nottingham Health Profile, showed a significant improvement in(More)
The development of borderline personality disorder (BPD) has been associated with parenting styles and parental psychopathology. Only a few studies have examined current parental rearing styles and parental psychopathology in relationship to BPD symptoms in adolescents. Moreover, parenting stress has not been examined in this group. The current study(More)
In research laboratories using DNA-microarrays, usually a number of researchers perform experiments, each generating possible sources of error. There is a need for a quick and robust method to assess data quality and sources of errors in DNA-microarray experiments. To this end, a novel and cost-effective validation scheme was devised, implemented, and(More)
Computer digitization of M-Mode echocardiograms has proved a valuable research tool in the study of left ventricular function. It can be applied in clinical practice if the reproducibility of the technique is known so that imprecision can be minimised. Five normal echocardiograms of average clinical quality were selected and four cycles from each(More)
Simulation of DNA-microarray data serves at least three purposes: (i) optimizing the design of an intended DNA microarray experiment, (ii) comparing existing pre-processing and processing methods for best analysis of a given DNA microarray experiment, (iii) educating students, lab-workers and other researchers by making them aware of the many factors(More)

Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] concentration and apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)] isoforms (identified by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis [SDS-PAGE] and Western blotting) were determined in a group of 508 asymptomatic Caucasian members of the community and in 318 Caucasian patients with angiographically defined coronary artery disease (CAD).(More)
