The paper presents the application of the trainable SFC superpositional prosodic model to Chinese. Within the SFC model, prosodic parameters (F0, syllabic lengthening) are interpreted as the superposition of overlapping multi-parametric contours. These contours are associated with high-level prosodic features operating at different scopes, such as tones,… (More)
MOTIVATION Drug-induced toxicity related proteins (DITRPs) are proteins that mediate adverse drug reactions (ADRs) or toxicities through their binding to drugs or reactive metabolites. Collection of these proteins facilitates better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of drug-induced toxicity and the rational drug discovery. Drug-induced toxicity… (More)
Fibulin-1 (FBLN1) is involved in the progression of some types of cancer. However, the role of FBLN1 in cutaneous melanoma (CM) has not been examined. The purpose of this study was to understand the molecular mechanisms and clinical significance of FBLN1 inactivation in CM. The expression of FBLN1 mRNA in CM tissues and adjacent normal skin tissues was… (More)
This paper proposes model and moment selection criteria for moment restriction models. Our selection methods are based on the Cressie-Read discrepancy. We propose information criteria based on the empirical Cressie-Read (ECR) estimator. Our criteria are natural extensions of the Akaike information criterion (AIC) and the Takeuchi information criterion… (More)
This paper presents a numerical study on the mechanism of chloride migration in concrete. Unlike most of existing work, this study utilises multicomponent ionic transport models to reflect the influence of ionic interactions by coupling both mass conservation and Poisson's equations. A series of 2-D, 3-phase models with different shapes and volume fractions… (More)
Fukuchi (2002). We appreciate his suggestions in theoretical points of the re-sampling methods.
People often feel tired if he/she listens synthesized speech for a long time. This is mainly because synthesized speech is too flat and never stresses the focus. Different to traditional TTS research approach of simulating speaker, this paper does the stress prediction research from the point of the hearer. An ideal hearer model is first proposed to predict… (More)
