The number and configuration of root canals in mandibular first permanent molar, studied by radiographic method, on 60 teeth revealed (1) one canal in the mesial root in 5 percent, two in 78.3 percent, three in 13.3 percent and four in 3.3 percent. In distal root, one canal was observed in 58.3 percent, two in 40 percent and three in 1.7 percent of the(More)
In this paper we present a novel approach for estimating feature-space maximum likelihood linear regression (fMLLR) transforms for full-covariance Gaussian models by directly maximizing the likelihood function by repeated line search in the direction of the gradient. We do this in a pre-transformed parameter space such that an approximation to the expected(More)
Preparation of a lexicon for speech recognition systems can be a significant effort in languages where the written form is not exactly phonetic. On the other hand, in languages where the written form is quite phonetic, some common words are often mispronounced. In this paper, we use a combination of lexicon learning techniques to explore whether a lexicon(More)
A new technique is developed for identifying groups for regional flood frequency analysis. The technique uses a clustering algorithm as a starting point for partitioning the collection of catchments. The groups formed using the clustering algorithm are subsequently revised to improve the regional characteristics based on three requirements that are defined(More)
The temporal and spatial sediment load characteristics of Asia's longest river, the Yangtze, have been examined. Annual and monthly sediment load characteristics in the temporal domain were modelled. The annual sediment load data from 1950 to 1990 and monthly sediment load data from 1950 to 1969 were used. Statistical tests such as the turning point test,(More)
The physically-based flood frequency models use readily available rainfall data and catchment characteristics to derive the flood frequency distribution. In the present study, a new physically-based flood frequency distribution has been developed. This model uses bivariate exponential distribution for rainfall intensity and duration, and the Soil(More)
