We discuss the theoretical machinery involved in predicting financial market movements using an artificial market model which has been trained on real financial data. This approach to market prediction in particular, forecasting financial time-series by training a third-party or ‘black box’ game on the financial data itself – was discussed by Johnson et al.(More)
Modeling dynamical systems composed of aggregations of primitive proteins is critical to the field of astrobiological science, which studies early evolutionary structures dealing with the origins of life. Current theories on the emergence of early life focus either on RNA-world models [2, 3] or protein world models [4, 5]. Traditional modeling based on(More)
Acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a clinical diagnosis that is based on changes in dyspnea, cough, and/or sputum production in a COPD patient; however, patients presenting with an acute exacerbation may be undiagnosed or have a variety of comorbid conditions that can complicate diagnosis. This issue presents strategies(More)

OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the frequency of various postoperative complications in patients undergoing either immediate or delayed breast reconstruction after mastectomy for malignancy. METHODS The ACS-NSQIP 2005-2012 database was queried for patients who underwent mastectomy for the treatment of breast malignancy. These(More)
We discuss a method for predicting financial movements and finding pockets of predictability in the price-series, which is built around inferring the heterogeneity of trading strategies in a multi-agent trader population. This work explores extensions to our previous framework (arXiv:physics/0506134). Here we allow for more intelligent agents possessing a(More)
Methods: Twenty-four Sprague Dawley rats were divided into 2 groups. All underwent left sciatic nerve injury, leaving a 10mm gap. The injury was repaired using either: 1) Reverse autograft – the 10mm cut segment was oriented 180° and used to coapt the proximal and distal ends or 2) UBM conduit the 10mm nerve gap was bridged with UBM conduit. Validated(More)
Because of the chronic relapsing nature of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), emergency clinicians frequently manage patients with acute flares and complications. IBD patients present with an often-broad range of nonspecific signs and symptoms, and it is essential to differentiate a mild flare from a life-threatening intra-abdominal process. Recognizing(More)
