Abstract. A concept called stochastic complementation is an idea which occurs naturally, although not always explicitly, in the theory and application of finite Markov chains. This paper brings this idea to the forefront with an explicit definition and a development of some of its properties. Applications of stochastic complementation are explored with(More)
Autochthonous dengue virus transmission, last identified in the state of Hawaii in 1945, was detected again in 2001. A seroepidemiological survey in a high-incidence community (Nahiku) and a nearby low-incidence community (Hana Subdivision) was implemented. The two communities studied differed in median household size (two vs. four persons), median lot size(More)
Trading blocs realize the strategic importance of and threats from emerging infections, particularly those related to travel and food. Like the European Union, the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) is undertaking an initiative in emerging infections. The APEC Emerging Infections Network project builds on an existing Internet-based educational network(More)

In this paper we derive convergence estimates for the iterative solution of nonsymmetric linear systems by GMRES. We work in the context of strongly convergent-collectively compact sequences of approximations to linear compact xed point problems. Our estimates are intended to explain the observations that the performance of GMRES is independent of the(More)
To analyse the french methods for financing technical-medical activities as CT scanners, and to assess if they can face, or not, the management constraints of such activities a financial simulation has been executed. First, current expenditures are totalized (including depreciations and financial charges) with variations according to the number of(More)
