With the rapid decline in cost of sequencing, it is now affordable to examine multiple genes in a single disease-targeted clinical test using next generation sequencing. Current targeted sequencing methods require a separate step of targeted capture enrichment during sample preparation before sequencing. Although there are fast sample preparation methods… (More)
This paper presents the problem of designing a sliding mode controller via static output feedback for a class of fractional order time-varying mismatched uncertain systems, in which all states are unavailable and estimated states are not required. On the basis of auxiliary system, a sliding mode control law with output feedback characteristics is researched… (More)
—As the traffic load control is very important for the task scheduling in wireless sensor networks, this paper discusses how to design an effective routing algorithm for wireless sensor networks with traffic load constrained. Firstly, internal structure of a sensor node in wireless sensor networks is analyzed. Secondly, how to design an effective traffic… (More)
In this paper we present a proof-based method of developing ontologies that satisfy requirements, where the proof process guides the development of the ontology. We formally define our procedure and illustrate it with examples.
In this paper we present an algorithm for estimating state-dependent polynomial coefficients in the nonstationary-state hidden Markov model (or the trended HMM) which allows for the flexibility of linear time warping or scaling in individual model states. The need for the state-dependent time warping arises from the consideration that due to speaking rate… (More)
We postulate in this paper that highly structured speech production models will have much to contribute to the ultimate success of speech recognition in view of the weaknesses of the theoretical foundation underpinning current technology. These weaknesses are analyzed in terms of phonological modeling and of phonetic-interface modeling. We present two… (More)
