The infratemporal fossa is a deep retromaxillary space corresponding to the inferior aspect of the middle cranial fossa. Tumours in the infratemporal fossa are very rare; therefore experience in their diagnosis and therapeutic management is very limited. Tumors that are reported commonly in the infratemporal region are nasopharyngeal carcinomas, juvenile(More)
This paper is a comparative study of the early and late functional results of tympanoplastic operations, as modified by Khan. Following such surgery, we examined 494 patients who had been operated on between 1970--1972 in the ENT Clinic of the Free University of Berlin (Klinikum Westend). Preliminary and final hearing results were recorded with the aid of(More)
—Dorsal hand vein pattern is an emerging biometric which is attracting the attention of researchers, of late. Research is being carried out on existing techniques in the hope of improving them or finding more efficient ones. In this work, Principle Component Analysis (PCA) , which is a successful method, originally applied on face biometric is being(More)
—In this paper, we apply and compare two generalized estimating equation approaches to the analysis of car breakdowns data in Mauritius. Number of breakdowns experienced by a machinery is a highly under-dispersed count random variable and its value can be attributed to the factors related to the mechanical input and output of that machinery. Analyzing such(More)

Negative-binomial Lindley distribution is a two-parameter discrete model that has been recently introduced in statistical literature. It has been used mostly in the analysis of insurance data and has shown to provide suitable fits as compared with the Poisson and Negative-binomial distributions. The parameters of the Negative-binomial Lindley model were(More)
