A nonlinear Bayesian filter is proposed in this paper for a general nonlinear system of continuous time dynamics and discrete time measurements. In this filter, a transient Fokker-Planck equation solver based on tensor decomposition is used for propagating the conditional state probability density function (PDF) in conjunction with a measurement update via(More)
Keywords: Foreign investment Production networks Embeddedness Regional development China a b s t r a c t This paper analyzes the nature of FDI local networks in production and R&D activities in China and discusses their implications for technological dynamism and regional development. We investigate foreign ventures (or foreign-invested enterprises, FIEs)(More)
Food allergy (FA) affects 2%-10% of US children and is a growing clinical and public health problem. Here we conduct the first genome-wide association study of well-defined FA, including specific subtypes (peanut, milk and egg) in 2,759 US participants (1,315 children and 1,444 parents) from the Chicago Food Allergy Study, and identify peanut allergy(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the performance of structurally reinforced, stabilized recombinant human collagen-phosphorylcholine (RHCIII-MPC) hydrogels as corneal substitutes in a rabbit model of severe corneal damage. METHODS One eye each of 12 rabbits received a deep corneal alkali wound. Four corneas were implanted with RHCIII-MPC hydrogels. The other eight(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t In this paper, a tensor decomposition approach combined with Chebyshev spectral differentiation is presented to solve the high dimensional transient Fokker–Planck equations (FPE) arising in the simulation of polymeric fluids via multi-bead-spring (MBS) model. Generalizing the authors' previous work on the stationary(More)
