The long-term response of coral reefs to climate change depends on the ability of reef-building coral symbioses to adapt or acclimatize to warmer temperatures, but there has been no direct evidenceâ€¦ (More)

We consider the standard single-server queue with unlimited waiting space and the first-in first-out service discipline, but without any explicit independence conditions on the interarrival andâ€¦ (More)

We consider the problem of optimal allocation of computing budget to maximize the probability of correct selection in the ordinal optimization setting. This problem has been studied in the literatureâ€¦ (More)

Coral reef bleaching, the whitening of diverse invertebrate taxa, results from the loss of symbiotic zooxanthellae and/or a reduction in photosynthetic pigment concentrations in zooxanthellaeâ€¦ (More)

We propose an algorithm to compute the set of individual (nonnegligible) Poisson probabilities, rigorously bound truncation error, and guarantee no overflow or underflow. Work and space requirementsâ€¦ (More)

Let <bold>X</bold> = {X(t)}<subscrpt>t â‰¥ 0</subscrpt> be a stochastic process with a stationary version <bold>X<supscrpt>*</supscrpt></bold>. It is investigated when it is possible to generate byâ€¦ (More)

Consider a computer system having a CPU that feeds jobs to two input/output (I/O) devices having different speeds. Let &thgr; be the fraction of jobs routed to the first I/O device, so that 1 -â€¦ (More)

We consider a series of n single-server queues, each with unlimited waiting space and the first-in first-out service discipline. Initially, the system is empty; then k customers are placed in theâ€¦ (More)
