There is consistent evidence in the literature that the foetal neurodevelopmental period is crucial for the genesis of schizophrenia later in adult life. There are also strong indications that the schizophrenic illness has sexually dimorphic features. A hypothesis consistent with both findings is that sexual hormones may act as aetiological agents for… (More)
This whitepaper is designed to provide a basic understanding of the main concepts of the DO-254 compliance specification for electronic component design. It outlines the major steps involved in a DO-254 compliant ASIC/FPGA design and verification process, and explains how differentiating tool features can be mapped to enhance and facilitate critical stages… (More)

This paper lays the foundations for a new framework for numerically and computationally applying information geometric methods to statistical modelling.
This paper applies the tools of computation information geometry  – in particular, high dimensional extended multinomial families as proxies for the 'space of all distributions' – in the inferentially demanding area of statistical mixture modelling. A range of resultant benefits are noted.
