— This paper introduces a preliminary effort to develop an automatic image analysis method using Artificial Immune Systems for clinical dental diagnosis. To diagnose dental deformity, especially malocclusion, manual measurement of certain geometry on the X-ray images is traditionally used, which relies on subjective judgment to determine the reference(More)
BACKGROUND Preeclampsia (PE) is an obstetric disorder with high morbidity and mortality rates but without clear pathogeny. The dysfunction of the blood coagulation-fibrinolysis system is a salient characteristic of PE that varies in severity, and necessitates different treatments. Therefore, it is necessary to find suitable predictors for the onset and(More)
Short-term wind speed and wind power forecasts (for a 72 h period) are obtained using a nonlinear autoregressive exogenous artificial neural network (ANN) methodology which incorporates either numerical weather prediction or high-resolution computational fluid dynamics wind field information as an exogenous input. An ensemble approach is used to combine the(More)
This paper focuses on the tracking problem for air-breathing hypersonic vehicles (AHVs) and proposes a new control method on the basis of not canceling, but using, aero-propulsive, as well as elevator-to-lift, couplings to design controllers without strategically avoiding or reducing the nonminimum phase characteristic. The controllers and the external(More)
