A viscous ferroliquid is trapped between two narrowly spaced parallel sheets of glass, the Hele-Shaw cell. The ferroliquid lls a cylindrical domain with cross section and the rest of the cell is lled with a uid of negligible viscosity. In absence of any other forces, the eeect of surface tension at the interface between the uids is such that the liquid is(More)
A Bayesian approach is presented for modeling a time series by an autoregressive-moving average model. The treatment is robust to innovation and additive outliers and identiies such outliers. It enforces stationarity on the autoregressive parameters and invertibility on the moving average parameters, and takes account of uncertainty about the correct model(More)
Mental disorders are highly prevalent and cause considerable suffering and disease burden. To compound this public health problem, many individuals with psychiatric disorders remain untreated although effective treatments exist. We examine the extent of this treatment gap. We reviewed community-based psychiatric epidemiology studies that used standardized(More)
OBJECTIVE Although several epidemiological studies of the prevalence of psychiatric disorders have been conducted in Latin America, few of them were national studies that could be used to develop region-wide estimates. Data are presented on the prevalence of DSM-III-R disorders, demographic correlates, comorbidity, and service utilization in a nationally(More)
OBJECTIVES Current information on the prevalence of psychiatric disorders among older adults in the United States is lacking. Prevalence of anxiety, mood, and substance disorders was examined by age (18-44, 45-64, 65-74, and 75 years and older) and sex. Covariates of disorders for older adults (65 years and older) were explored. DESIGN Cross-sectional(More)
