Detecting the footprint of changing atmospheric nitrogen deposition loads on acid grasslands in the context of climate change
Although atmospheric nitrogen (N) deposition and climate changes are both recognized as major components of global change, their interaction at ecosystem level is less well understood. A stratified
A pr 2 00 9 X-ray Substructure Studies of Four Galaxy Clusters using XMM-Newton Data 5
Mahdavi et al. find that the degree of agreement between weak lensing and X-ray mass measurements is a function of cluster radius. Numerical simulations also point out that X-ray mass proxies do not
Chromosome abnormalities in ovarian adenocarcinoma: III. Using breakpoint data to infer and test mathematical models for oncogenesis
How 7 techniques from statistics, theoretical computer science, and phylogenetics can be used to infer and test possible models of tumor progression from single genome‐wide descriptions of aberrations in a large sample of tumors is illustrated.
Flexible discriminant and mixture models
MCMCpack: Markov chain Monte Carlo in R
MCpack is introduced, an R package that contains functions to perform Bayesian inference using posterior simulation for a number of statistical models, and some useful utility functions are introduced.
Robust Regression Methods: Achieving Small Standard Errors When There Is Heteroscedasticity
A serious practical problem with the ordinary least squares regression estimator is that it can have a relatively large standard error when the error term is heteroscedastic, even under normality. In
Effect of deviation from vessel target speed over ground, trawl speed through water and time of day on catch rates of several fish species in North Sea surveys. ICES CM 2000/K:01
Effort in trawl surveys is standardised by using a common gear, towing time and vessel speed. Such standardisation should result in fairly constant distance trawled and area or volume swept.
Practical Maximum Pseudolikelihood for Spatial Point Patterns
This paper describes a technique for computing approximate maximum pseudolikelihood estimates of the parameters of a spatial point process. The method is an extension of Berman & Turner's (1992)
Where the eyes wander: The relationship between mind wandering and fixation allocation to visually salient and semantically informative static scene content
The relationship between mind wandering and semantic content was more equivocal, with weaker evidence that fixations are more likely to fall on locally informative scene regions, which indicates that the visual system is still able to discriminate visually salient and semantically informative scene content duringMind wandering and may fixate on such information more frequently than during attentive viewing.
