Integrating the predictiveness of a marker with its performance as a classifier.
There are two popular statistical approaches to biomarker evaluation. One models the risk of disease (or disease outcome) with, for example, logistic regression. A marker is considered useful if itExpand

Bifurcation of flame structure in a lean-premixed swirl-stabilized combustor: transition from stable to unstable flame
The present work addresses unsteady flame dynamics in a lean-premixed swirl-stabilized combustor, with attention focused on the transition of flame structure from a stable to an unstable state. ItExpand

The Contribution of Dental Amalgam to Urinary Mercury Excretion in Children
Background Urinary mercury concentrations are widely used as a measure of mercury exposure from dental amalgam fillings. No studies have evaluated the relationship of these measures in a longitudinalExpand

Effect of swirl on combustion dynamics in a lean-premixed swirl-stabilized combustor
Abstract The effect of inlet swirl on the flow development and combustion dynamics in a lean-premixed swirl-stabilized combustor has been numerically investigated using a large-eddy-simulation (LES)Expand

A parametric ROC model-based approach for evaluating the predictiveness of continuous markers in case-control studies.
The predictiveness curve shows the population distribution of risk endowed by a marker or risk prediction model. It provides a means for assessing the model's capacity for stratifying the populationExpand
