Age-at-death estimation of an individual skeleton is important to forensic and biological anthropologists for identification and demographic analysis, but it has been shown that the current aging methods are often unreliable because of skeletal variation and taphonomic factors. Multifactorial methods have been shown to produce better results when(More)
Pancreatic exocrine function tests and plasma insulin curves after a glucose load have been performed in 74 patients, 32 with no significant pancreatic disease, 31 with various disorders of the pancreas, and 11 with postmature diabetes mellitus. Exocrine function was impaired in all patients with chronic pancreatitis and chronic relapsing pancreatitis,(More)
In prior work, Grabisch put forth a direct (i.e., result of the Extension Principle) generalization of the Sugeno fuzzy integral (FI) for fuzzy set (FS)-valued normal (height equal to one) integrands and number-based fuzzy measures (FMs). Grabisch’s proof is based in large on Dubois and Prade’s analysis of functions on intervals, fuzzy numbers (thus normal(More)
Previously, we introduced a novel method to estimate adult skeletal age-at-death using the Sugeno fuzzy integral (FI). Specifically, we took a multi-hypothesis testing approach to make the classical FI yield a fuzzy set (FS)-valued result, which is not guaranteed to be normal or convex, based on interval-valued sources of information (aging methods). We(More)
The fuzzy integral (FI) is an extremely flexible aggregation operator. It is used in numerous applications, such as image processing, multi-criteria decision making, skeletal ageat-death estimation and multi-source (e.g., feature, algorithm, sensor, confidence) fusion. To date, a few works have appeared on the topic of generalizing Sugeno’s original(More)

The editors of Behavioral Sciences would like to express their sincere gratitude to the following reviewers for assessing manuscripts in 2015. We greatly appreciate the contribution of expert reviewers, which is crucial to the journal’s editorial decision-making process. Several steps have been taken in 2015 to thank and acknowledge reviewers. Good, timely(More)
