The patients and caregivers were administered four of the questionnaires included in the Cognitive Behavioral Assessment 2.0, the Family Strain(More)
We propose a network-filtering method, the Triangulated Maximally Filtered Graph (TMFG), that provides an approximate solution to the Weighted Maximal Planar Graph problem. The underlying idea of TMFG consists in building a triangulation that maximizes a score function associated with the amount of information retained by the network. TMFG uses as weights(More)
We introduce a methodology to construct parsimonious probabilistic models. This method makes use of information filtering networks to produce a robust estimate of the global sparse inverse covariance from a simple sum of local inverse covariances computed on small subparts of the network. Being based on local and low-dimensional inversions, this method is(More)

BACKGROUND A cooperative study was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of a very brief course of chemotherapy followed by locoregional radiotherapy in patients with localized-stage intermediate- to high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). PATIENTS AND METHOD From January 1988 to November 1994, 84 patients with localized stages IA and IIA(More)
