Since its introduction, kernel adaptive filtering (KAF) has attracted considerable attention in recent years. Its main advantages include universal nonlinear approximation using kernel methods, linearity with convex learning in the Reproducing Kernel Hilbert Space (RKHS), and online adaptation with moderate complexity. Among its applications, the kernel(More)
BACKGROUND Rare copy number variations (CNVs) were involved in the etiology of neuropsychiatric disorders, and some of them appeared to be shared risk factors for several different diseases. One of those promising loci is the CNV at 15q11.2, including 4 genes, TUBGCP5, CYFIP1, NIPA2, and NIPA1. Several studies showed that microdeletions at this locus were(More)
House dust samples containing 25-738 mg of Pb kg(-1) from 15 cities in China were assessed for in vitro Pb bioaccessibility and in vivo Pb relative bioavailability. On the basis of stable Pb isotope ratios, the Pb in dust samples mainly originated from coal combustion. Lead bioaccessibility was determined using gastric (GP) and intestinal phase (IP) of(More)
This paper compares the comovement of individual stock returns across emerging markets. Campbell et al. (2001) and Morck et al. (2000) show that the US in the post war period saw rising firm specific stock return variations and thus declining comovement. We detect a similar, albeit weaker, pattern in most, but not all, emerging markets. We further find(More)
Would it not be nice to have an organic solvent nanofiltration membrane made from renewable resources that can be manufactured as simply as producing paper? Here the production of nanofiltration membranes made from nanocellulose by applying a papermaking process is demonstrated. Manufacture of the nanopapers was enabled by inducing flocculation of(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in U.S. prisoners is high; however, HCV testing and treatment are rare. Infected inmates released back into society contribute to the spread of HCV in the general population. Routine hepatitis screening of inmates followed by new therapies may reduce ongoing HCV transmission. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the(More)
Epidermal electronics with advanced capabilities in near field communications (NFC) are presented. The systems include stretchable coils and thinned NFC chips on thin, low modulus stretchable adhesives, to allow seamless, conformal contact with the skin and simultaneous capabilities for wireless interfaces to any standard, NFC-enabled smartphone, even under(More)
Because the radical cations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are involved in tumor initiation, determination of the structures of biologically formed PAH-DNA adducts is important and relies on comparison of their properties with those of synthesized adducts. One of the possible sites of adduct formation is the N-3 position of Ade, but this(More)
