We study the extension of canonical correlation from pairs of random vectors to the case where a data sample consists of pairs of square integrable stochastic processes. Basic questions concerning the definition and existence of functional canonical correlation are addressed and sufficient criteria for the existence of functional canonical correlation are(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the prevalence of undiagnosed diabetes among populations with diabetes living on the United States (U.S.)-Mexico border, examine explanations for differences between groups, and investigate differences in metabolic outcomes by diagnosis status. METHODS Data come from the U.S.-Mexico Border Diabetes Prevention and Control Project(More)
INTRODUCTION Self-reported prediabetes and diabetes rates underestimate true prevalence, but mass laboratory screening is generally impractical for risk assessment and surveillance. We developed the Abnormal Glucose Risk Assessment-6 (AGRA-6) tool to address this problem. METHODS Self-report data were obtained from the 1,887 adults (18 years or older) in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine prevalence of blood pressure control, hypertension, hypertension awareness, and antihypertensive treatment among adults (> 18 years old) with diabetes living in the border region between the United States of America and Mexico, and to explore variation in those variables between all adults on the Mexican side of the border(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the prevalence of smoking behaviors among adults with diabetes on the United States-Mexico border, to compare these behaviors in U.S. Hispanics and Mexicans with diabetes, and to identify explanations for group differences. METHODS Data came from the U.S.-Mexico Border Diabetes Prevention and Control Project survey (2001-2002), a(More)
We study regression models for the situation where both dependent and independent variables are square integrable stochastic processes. Questions concerning definition and existence of the corresponding functional linear regression models and some basic properties are explored for this situation. We derive a representation of the regression parameter(More)
This extensive theoretical study employed the spin-flip density functional theory (SFDFT) method to investigate the photoisomerization of 11-cis-retinal protonated Schiff base (PSB11) and its minimal model tZt-penta-3,5-dieniminium cation (PSB3). Our calculated results indicate that SFDFT can perform very well in describing the ground- and excited-state(More)
The ground and excited state geometries, the excitation and emission energies for a series of fluorescein derivatives in aqueous solutions have been investigated using time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) with B3LYP and a long-range corrected CAM-B3LYP functional. The RI-CC2 method was employed to confirm the CAM-B3LYP results. As far as we(More)
