This paper presents an unsupervised approach for disambiguating between various senses of a word to select the most appropriate sense, based on the context in the text. We have defined a Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis (PLSA) based Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) system in which sense tagged annotated data is not required for training and the system(More)

Soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merrill) is a major oilseed commodity which partitions carbon and nitrogen flux during embryogenesis towards two primary storage reserves, protein and oil, at approximately 40% and 20%, respectively in the seed. This attribute makes soybean a valuable feedstock in many food, feed and industrial applications. Over the past decade, a(More)
Problems such as natural ventilation, pollutant dispersion, changes in wind environments, and urban heat islands are gaining increasing prominence in both public concern and research. In response, urban microclimate modelling researchers are continually striving to develop new strategies to rapidly and inexpensively generate more accurate results. Numerical(More)
OBJECTIVE Estimation of baseline bone mineral density (BMD) at the time of instituting androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for metastatic prostate cancer is recommended by several specialty groups and expert panels. The present study was carried out to analyze the practice pattern of Indian urologists with regard to bone densitometric assessment and(More)
