— The detection of direct causality, as opposed to indirect causality, is an important and challenging problem in root cause and hazard propagation analysis. Several methods provide effective solutions to this problem when linear relationships between variables are involved. For nonlinear relationships, currently only overall causality analysis can be(More)
To explore the roles of mitochondrial Uncoupling Protein 2 (UCP2) in cumulus cells (CCs), human CCs were cultured in vitro, and the UCP2 was inhibited by treatment with Genipin, a special UCP inhibitor, or by RNA interference targeting UCP2. No significant differences in adenosine triphosphate levels and the ratio of ADP/ATP were observed after UCP2(More)
PURPOSE The literatures show that photodynamic therapy (PDT) and intravitreal ranibizumab (IVR) have their own specific advantages in treating polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV). Using a meta-analysis, we want to provide some suggestions for the clinical application of the two treatments to PCV patients through a comparison of the functional outcomes(More)
— Detection of causality is an important and challenging problem in root cause and hazard propagation analysis. A new information theory-based measure, transfer 0-entropy, is proposed for causality analysis on the basis of the definitions of 0-entropy and 0-information without assuming a probability space. For the cases of more than two variables, a direct(More)
As the core of digital elevation model, interpolation methods have been run through the each link, such as production, quality control, accuracy assessment, analytical applications and etc. The local radial basis function interpolation method based on spatial relationship of natural neighbor was proposed in this paper. The interpolation reference points(More)
Calcium Silicate Hydrate (C-S-H) is the main hydration product of Portland cement, it has an important impact on the properties of cement and causes a wide range of study. In recent years, superplasticizer, of which the main component is organic macromolecules, has become an important component in preparation for high performance concrete. Molecular(More)
— Direct causality detection is an important and challenging problem in root cause and hazard propagation analysis. Several methods provide effective solutions to this problem for linear relationships. For nonlinear situations, currently only causality analysis can be conducted, but the direct causality cannot be identified based on process data. In this(More)
