We develop simple approximations for the p-values to use with regression models having linear or nonlinear parameter structure and normal or nonnormal error distribution; computer iteration then gives conndence intervals. Both frequentist and Bayesian versions are given. The approximations are derived from recent developments in likelihood analysis and have(More)
A novel microbe was isolated from a geothermal vent in Yang-Ming National Park in northern Taiwan. This spherical microbe with mean cell diameter of 1.1 +/- 0.2 microns is a facultatively chemolithoautotrophic archaeon that grows on elemental sulfur and reduced sulfur compounds. The optimal pH and temperature for growth are 4.0 (pH range 2.0-6.0) and 80(More)
Stern et al. (2012) presented a study of WISE selection of AGN in the 2 deg COSMOS field, finding that a simple criterion W1–W2≥0.8 provides a highly reliable and complete AGN sample for W2<15.05, where the W1 and W2 passbands are centered at 3.4μm and 4.6μm, respectively. Here we extend this study using the larger 9 deg NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey Boötes(More)
Studies of urban ecological systems can be greatly enhanced by combining ecosystem modelling and remote sensing which often requires establishing statistical relationships between field and remote sensing data. At the Central Arizona–Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research (CAPLTER) site in the southwestern USA, we estimated vegetation abundance from Landsat(More)
427 D. Fensel and R. Groenboom choose and the range constructs, cf. [7]). Otherwise, current operationalizations and axiomizations of ealgebras are restricted to the case of point-wise updates. A further difference to our approach is that MLPM provides a richer vocabulary to express control over the execution of transitions. The language DESIRE uses the(More)
The expression of the human HSP70 gene is induced by a wide range of physiological stresses, including exposure to heat shock and heavy metals, or under nonstress conditions, such as in response to serum stimulation. We have previously demonstrated that in either case the regulated expression is at the primary level of transcription. To determine whether(More)
The Brilliant Eyes Ten-Kelvin Sorption Cryocooler Experiment (BETSCE) is a Space Shuttle side-wall-mounted flight experiment designed to demonstrate 10 K sorption cryocooler technology in a space environment. The BETSCE objectives are to: (1) provide a thorough end-to-end characterization and space performance validation of a complete, multistage,(More)
Abstract: Biomass combustion Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology uses biomass fuel to generate usable heat and electricity simultaneously in a single unit. Biomass is considered the renewable energy resource (RES) and its utilization has been of particular interest to meet the energy needs of modern society. Nevertheless biomass contains much less(More)
The Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) is an x-ray free-electron laser (FEL) project based on the SLAC linac. The nominal parameter set is founded on a 1-nC bunch charge and normalized emittance of about 1 micron. Many of the most challenging issues are associated with the relatively high charge. The study described here uses a 0.2-nC bunch charge and(More)
