A Bayesian Framework for Active Learning
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)We describe a Bayesian framework for active learning for nonseparable data, which incorporates a query density to explicitly model how new data is to be sampled. The model makes no assumption of independence between queried ... 
Bayesian inductively learned modules for safety critical systems
(Interface Foundation of North America, Inc., 2003)This work examines the use of Bayesian inductively learned software modules for safety critical systems. Central to the safety critical application is the desire to generate confidence measures associated with predictions. ... 
Bayesian unsupervised learning with multiple data types
(Walter de Gruyter, 2009)We propose Bayesian generative models for unsupervised learning with two types of data and an assumed dependency of one type of data on the other. We consider two algorithmic ap proaches, based on a correspondence model ... 
Benchmarking energy consumption and CO2 emissions from rainwater harvesting systems: an improved method by proxy
(IWA (International Water Association), 2010)Life cycle analyses (LCAs) show the main operational energy contribution for rainwaterharvesting (RWH) systems come from ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and pumping rainwater from tank to building. Simple methods of estimating ... 
A biascorrected decomposition of the Brier score
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2012)The Brier score is a widely used measure of performance for probabilistic forecasts of event occurrences and is often decomposed additively into three terms that quantify the reliability and resolution of the forecasts and ... 
Biclustering models for structured microarray data
(IEEE, 2005)Microarrays have become a standard tool for investigating gene function and more complex microarray experiments are increasingly being conducted. For example, an experiment may involve samples from several groups or may ... 
Bidirectional transport and pulsing states in a multilane ASEP model
(IOP Publishing, 2011)In this paper, we introduce an ASEPlike transport model for bidirectional motion of particles on a multilane lattice. The model is motivated by {\em in vivo} experiments on organelle motility along a microtubule (MT), ... 
Bifurcation analysis of delayinduced resonances of the ElNiño Southern Oscillation.
(Royal Society, 2014)Models of global climate phenomena of low to intermediate complexity are very useful for providing an understanding at a conceptual level. An important aspect of such models is the presence of a number of feedback loops ... 
Bifurcation to heteroclinic cycles and sensitivity in three and four coupled phase oscillators
(Elsevier, 2008)We study the bifurcation and dynamical behaviour of the system of N globally coupled identical phase oscillators introduced by Hansel, Mato and Meunier, in the cases N=3 and N=4. This model has been found to exhibit robust ... 
Bioinspired iridescent layerbylayer assembled cellulose nanocrystal Bragg stacks
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)Layerbylayer (LbL) assembly was used to fabricate a synthetic analogue of the color producing multilayered structure commonly found in many biological systems, particularly Coleoptera. The resulting iridescent films ... 
Bioavailability of nanoscale metal oxides TiO(2), CeO(2), and ZnO to fish
(American Chemical Society, 20100201)Nanoparticles (NPs) are reported to be a potential environmental health hazard. For organisms living in the aquatic environment, there is uncertainty on exposure because of a lack of understanding and data regarding the ... 
Bistability in feedback circuits as a byproduct of evolution of evolvability
(2012)Noisy bistable dynamics in gene regulation can underlie stochastic switching and is demonstrated to be beneficial under fluctuating environments. It is not known, however, if fluctuating selection alone can result in ... 
Black Hole Lasers Revisited
(Springer, 2007)The production of Hawking radiation by a single horizon is not dependent on the highfrequency dispersion relation of the radiated field. When there are two horizons, however, Corley and Jacobson have shown that superluminal ... 
Blind source separation for nonstationary mixing
(2000)Blind source separation attempts to recover independent sources which have been linearly mixed to produce observations. We consider blind source separation with nonstationary mixing, but stationary sources. The linear ... 
Blowout bifurcation in a system of coupled chaotic lasers
(American Physical Society, 1998)We show that loss of synchronization of two identical coupled chaotic class B lasers can occur via a blowout bifurcation. This occurs when a transverse Lyapunov exponent governing the stability of a synchronized subspace ... 
Blue, surfaceemitting, distributed feedback polyfluorene lasers
(American Institute of Physics, 2003)We report the fabrication of opticallypumped solidstate distributed feedback lasers utilizing two bluelightemitting semiconducting polyfluorenes as gain media. The lasers were readily fabricated by solution deposition ... 
Bounded real and positive real balanced truncation for infinitedimensional systems
(American Institute of Mathematical Sciences, 2013)Bounded real balanced truncation for infinitedimensional systems is considered. This provides reduced order finitedimensional systems that retain bounded realness. We obtain an error bound analogous to the finitedimensional ... 
Bounds on the dynamics of sink populations with noisy immigration
(Elsevier, 2014)Sink populations are doomed to decline to extinction in the absence of immigration. The dynamics of sink populations are not easily modelled using the standard framework of per capita rates of immigration, because numbers ... 
Brillouin scattering study on the singlecrystal elastic properties of natrolite and analcime zeolites
(American Institute of Physics, 2005)The Brillouin lightscattering technique was used to investigate the singlecrystal elastic properties of two aluminosilicate zeolites, natrolite (NAT) and analcime (ANA), at ambient conditions. An inversion of the acoustic ...
