On Simulating Univariate And Multivariate Burr Type Iii And Type Xii Distributions, Todd C. Headrick, Mohan D. Pant, Yanyan Sheng 2010 Southern Illinois University Carbondale

On Simulating Univariate And Multivariate Burr Type Iii And Type Xii Distributions, Todd C. Headrick, Mohan D. Pant, Yanyan Sheng

Mohan Dev Pant

This paper describes a method for simulating univariate and multivariate Burr Type III and Type XII distributions with specified correlation matrices. The methodology is based on the derivation of the parametric forms of a pdf and cdf for this family of distributions. The paper shows how shape parameters can be computed for specified values of skew and kurtosis. It is also demonstrated how to compute percentage points and other measures of central tendency such as the mode, median, and trimmed mean. Examples are provided to demonstrate how this Burr family can be used in the context of distribution fitting using ...


Software Internationalization: A Framework Validated Against Industry Requirements For Computer Science And Software Engineering Programs, John Huân Vũ 2010 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Software Internationalization: A Framework Validated Against Industry Requirements For Computer Science And Software Engineering Programs, John Huân Vũ

In 2001, the ACM and IEEE Computing Curriculum stated that it was necessary to address "the need to develop implementation models that are international in scope and could be practiced in universities around the world." With increasing connectivity through the internet, the move towards a global economy and growing use of technology places software internationalization as a more important concern for developers. However, there has been a "clear shortage in terms of numbers of trained persons applying for entry-level positions" in this area. Eric Brechner, Director of Microsoft ...


Local Fractional Fourier’S Transform Based On The Local Fractional Calculus, Yang Xiao-Jun 2010 Zongxin Kang, Changhe Liu

Local Fractional Fourier’S Transform Based On The Local Fractional Calculus, Yang Xiao-Jun

Xiao-Jun Yang

A new modeling for the local fractional Fourier’s transform containing the local fractional calculus is investigated in fractional space. The properties of the local fractional Fourier’s transform are obtained and two examples for the local fractional systems are investigated in detail.

An Amazing Mathematical Card Trick, Arthur T. Benjamin 2010 Harvey Mudd College

An Amazing Mathematical Card Trick, Arthur T. Benjamin

All HMC Faculty Publications and Research

A magician gives a member of the audience 20 cards to shuffle. After the cards are thoroughly mixed, the magician goes through the deck two cards at a time, sometimes putting the two cards face to face, sometimes back to back, and sometimes in the same direction. Before dealing each pair of cards into a pile, he asks random members of the audience if the pair should be flipped over or not. He goes through the pile again four cards at a time and before each group of four is dealt to a pile, the audience gets to decide whether ...


From Energy Gradient And Natural Selection To Biodiversity And Stability Of Ecosystems, Bo Deng 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

From Energy Gradient And Natural Selection To Biodiversity And Stability Of Ecosystems, Bo Deng

Faculty Publications, Department of Mathematics

The purpose of this paper is to incorporate well-established ecological principles into a foodweb model consisting of four trophic levels --- abiotic resources, plants, herbivores, and carnivores. The underlining principles include Kimura's neutral theory of genetic evolution, Liebig's Law of the Minimum for plant growth, Holling's functionals for herbivore foraging and carnivore predation, the One-Life Rule for all organisms, and Lotka-Volterra's model for intraand interspecific competitions. Numerical simulations of the model led to the following statistical findings: (a) particular foodwebs can give contradicting observations on biodiversity and productivity, in particular, all known functional forms -- - positive, negative, sigmoidal ...


Metastability And Plasticity In A Conceptual Model Of Neurons, Bo Deng 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Metastability And Plasticity In A Conceptual Model Of Neurons, Bo Deng

Faculty Publications, Department of Mathematics

For a new class of neuron models we demonstrate here that typical membrane action potentials and spike-bursts are only transient states but appear to be asymptotically stable; and yet such metastable states are plastic — being able to dynamically change from one action potential to another with different pulse frequencies and from one spike-burst to another with different spike-per-burst numbers. The pulse and spike-burst frequencies change with individual ions’ pump currents while their corresponding metastable-plastic states maintain the same transmembrane voltage and current profiles in range. It is also demonstrated that the plasticity requires two one-way ion pumps operating in opposite ...

Symmetries Of The Central Vestibular System: Forming Movements For Gravity And A Three-Dimensional World, Gin McCollum, Douglas A. Hanes 2009 Portland State University

Symmetries Of The Central Vestibular System: Forming Movements For Gravity And A Three-Dimensional World, Gin Mccollum, Douglas A. Hanes

Gin McCollum

Intrinsic dynamics of the central vestibular system (CVS) appear to be at least partly determined by the symmetries of its connections. The CVS contributes to whole-body functions such as upright balance and maintenance of gaze direction. These functions coordinate disparate senses (visual, inertial, somatosensory, auditory) and body movements (leg, trunk, head/neck, eye). They are also unified by geometric conditions. Symmetry groups have been found to structure experimentally-recorded pathways of the central vestibular system. When related to geometric conditions in three-dimensional physical space, these symmetry groups make sense as a logical foundation for sensorimotor coordination.
