In this paper, we propose a new variable-structure (switching) method for the prevention of proportional–integral–derivative controller integrator windup in both continuous and discrete-time implementations. The method is easily implemented and tuned by practicing engineers. This new method is compared with several existing methods for the prevention of(More)
Systems that evolve over time and follow mathematical laws as they evolve are called dynamical systems. Lymphocyte recovery and clinical outcomes in 41 allograft recipients conditioned using antithymocyte globulin (ATG) and 4.5-Gy total body irradiation were studied to determine if immune reconstitution could be described as a dynamical system. Survival,(More)
We evaluate conversational transcripts of deceptive speech using a sophisticated natural language processing tool called Coh-Metrix. Coh-Metrix is unique in that it tracks linguistic features based on social and cognitive factors. The results from Coh-Metrix are compared to linguistic features reported in previous independent deception research, which used(More)
Human cytomegalovirus (hCMV) reactivation may often coincide with the development of graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) in stem cell transplantation (SCT). Seventy seven SCT donor-recipient pairs (DRP) (HLA matched unrelated donor (MUD), n = 50; matched related donor (MRD), n = 27) underwent whole exome sequencing to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms(More)
To compare discourse differences in American and English/Welsh legal cases, we conducted a discriminant function analysis along five indices of cohesion on a specially constructed corpus. Our results suggest substantial differences, casting doubt on previous generalizations about British and American writing. Our results also offer guidance to developers of(More)
The association between human cytomegalovirus (hCMV) reactivation and the development of graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD) has been observed in stem cell transplantation (SCT). Seventy seven SCT donor-recipient pairs (DRP) (HLA matched unrelated donor (MUD), n=50; matched related donor (MRD), n=27) underwent whole exome sequencing to identify single(More)
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the validity of measuring grammatical diversity with a specifically designed Lexical Diversity Assessment Tool (LDAT). A secondary objective is to use LDAT to determine if the level of difficulty assigned to English as a Second Language (ESL) texts corresponds to increases in grammatical, lexical, and temporal(More)
