Performance evaluations of health services providers burgeons. Similarly, analyzing spatially related health information, ranking teachers and schools, and identification of differentially expressed genes are increasing in prevalence and importance. Goals include valid and efficient ranking of units for profiling and league tables, identification of(More)
Web service selection technology based on quality of service (QoS) has been a research focus for a while. Current researchers are trying to find a service selection solution for single user to get the optimal QoS utility value. However, there is a condition in which multiple users may raise their requests with same functional requirements. These requests(More)
Performance evaluations often aim to achieve goals such as obtaining estimates of unit-specific means, ranks, and the distribution of unit-specific parameters. The Bayesian approach provides a powerful way to structure models for achieving these goals. While no single estimate can be optimal for achieving all three inferential goals, the communication and(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, microarray data analyses using functional pathway information, e.g., gene set enrichment analysis (GSEA) and significance analysis of function and expression (SAFE), have gained recognition as a way to identify biological pathways/processes associated with a phenotypic endpoint. In these analyses, a local statistic is used to assess the(More)
Software product lines have been proven to be an effective way to develop domain-oriented software systems efficiently. In product line engineering, formal modeling and verification are critical for managing the behavioral variability since the number of products can be exponential. Therefore, two major challenges are the scalable modeling and the efficient(More)
