**Bayes Theorem**: A theorem in probability theory named for Thomas Bayes (1702-1761). In epidemiology, it is used to obtain the probability of disease in a group of people with some characteristic on the basis of the overall rate of that disease and of the likelihood of that characteristic in healthy and diseased individuals. The most familiar application is in clinical decision analysis where it is used for estimating the probability of a particular diagnosis given the appearance of some symptoms or test result.

**Mathematical Concepts**: Numeric or quantitative entities, descriptions, properties, relationships, operations, and events.

**Algorithms**: A procedure consisting of a sequence of algebraic formulas and/or logical steps to calculate or determine a given task.

**Mathematics**: The deductive study of shape, quantity, and dependence. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)

**Models, Statistical**: Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.

**Information Theory**: An interdisciplinary study dealing with the transmission of messages or signals, or the communication of information. Information theory does not directly deal with meaning or content, but with physical representations that have meaning or content. It overlaps considerably with communication theory and CYBERNETICS.

**Models, Theoretical**: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of systems, processes, or phenomena. They include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.

**Computer Simulation**: Computer-based representation of physical systems and phenomena such as chemical processes.

**Probability**: The study of chance processes or the relative frequency characterizing a chance process.

**Enzymes**: Biological molecules that possess catalytic activity. They may occur naturally or be synthetically created. Enzymes are usually proteins, however CATALYTIC RNA and CATALYTIC DNA molecules have also been identified.

**Models, Genetic**: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of genetic processes or phenomena. They include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.

**Achillea**: A plant genus of the family ASTERACEAE that has long been used in folk medicine for treating wounds.

**Models, Biological**: Theoretical representations that simulate the behavior or activity of biological processes or diseases. For disease models in living animals, DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL is available. Biological models include the use of mathematical equations, computers, and other electronic equipment.

**Likelihood Functions**: Functions constructed from a statistical model and a set of observed data which give the probability of that data for various values of the unknown model parameters. Those parameter values that maximize the probability are the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters.

... Specifically, it compares the probability of finding particular evidence if the accused were guilty, versus if they were not guilty. An example would be the probability of finding a person's hair at the scene, if guilty, versus if just passing through the scene. Suppose, that the proposition to be proven is that defendant was the source of a hair found at the crime scene. Before learning that the hair was a genetic match for the defendant’s hair, the factfinder believes that the odds are 2 to 1 that the defendant was the source of the hair. If she used

All Downloads Events Groups News People Projects Publications Videos. Structure Learning with Nonparametric Decomposable Models Anton Schwaighofer, Mathäus Dejori, Volker Tresp, and Martin Stetter 2007. Abstract We present a novel approach to structure learning for graphical models. By using nonparametric estimates to model clique densities in decomposable models, both discrete and continuous distributions can be handled in a unified framework. Also, consistency of the underlying probabilistic model is guaranteed. Model selection is based on predictive assessment, with efficient algorithms that allow fast greedy forward and backward selection within the class of decomposable models. We show the validity of this structure learning approach on toy data, and on two large sets of gene expression data. Details Publication type Inproceedings. Published in Artificial N...

There is nothing big data about Nate's methods. That's big data. That is big data. The fact is, he didn't need big data to do this. Look at it this way, if a meteorologist says there a 90% chance of rain where you live and it doesn't rain, the forecast wasn't necessarily wrong, because 10% of the time it shouldn't rain - otherwise the odds would be something other than a 90% chance of rain. In a frequentist interpretation, saying that an outcome of an event has a probability X% of occuring, you're saying that if you were to run an infinite series of repetitions of the event, then on average, the outcome would occur in X out of every 100 events. What it says is: for any specific event, it will have one outcome. But given the current state of information available to me , I can have a certain amount of certainty about whether or not the event will occur. It just means that given the current state of my knowledge, I expect a particular outcome, and the information I know gives me that degree of certainty.

New York data were used to estimate numerators for ICU and death, and two sources of data—medically attended cases in Milwaukee or self-reported influenza-like illness ILI in New York—were used to estimate ratios of symptomatic cases to hospitalizations. Using medically attended cases and estimates of the proportion of symptomatic cases medically attended, we estimated an sCFR of 0.048% 95% credible interval 0.026%–0.096%, sCIR of 0.239% 0.134%–0.458%, and sCHR of 1.44% 0.83%–2.64%. By using data on medically attended and hospitalized cases of pH1N1 infection in Milwaukee and information from New York City on hospitalizations, intensive care use, and deaths, the researchers estimate that the proportion of US cases with symptoms that died the sCFR during summer 2009 was 0.048%.

... 'Cross-species transmission CST ' is the phenomenon of transfer of viral infection from one species, usually a similar species, to another. Often seen in emerging viruses where one species transfers to another which in turn transfers to humans. Examples include HIV-AIDS, SARS, Ebola, Swine flu, rabies, and Bird flu. Faria NR, Suchard MA, Rambaut A, Streicker DG, Lemey P. Simultaneously reconstructing viral cross-species transmission history and identifying the underlying constraints. Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci. 2013 Feb 4;368 1614. The exact mechanism that facilitates the transfer is unknown, however, it is believed that viruses with a rapid mutation rate are able to overcome host-specific immunological defenses. This can occur between species that have high contact rates. It can also occur between species with low contact rates but usually through an intermediary species.

In statistics, 'deviance' is a quality of fit statistic for a model that is often used for statistical hypothesis testing. It is a generalization of the idea of using the sum of squares of residuals in ordinary least squares to cases where model-fitting is achieved by maximum likelihood. Definition See also Notes References External links. The deviance for a model 'M' 0, based on a dataset 'y', is defined as:. : D y = -2 \Big \log \big p y\mid\hat \theta 0 \big -\log \big p y\mid\hat \theta s \big \Big .\,. Here \hat \theta 0 denotes the fitted values of the parameters in the model 'M' 0, while \hat \theta s denotes the fitted parameters for the "full model" or "saturated model" : both sets of fitted values are implicitly functions of the observations 'y'. Here the 'full model' is a model with a parameter for every observation so that the data are fitted exactly. In particular, suppose that 'M 1 ' contains the parameters in 'M 2 ', and 'k' additional parameters. Then, under the null hypothesis that 'M 2 ' is ...

If drawn into combat Questing Beasts take half damage from mundane weapons and normal damage from magical weapons, though their magical powers have a 50% chance of not affecting the beast. Thusly a beast struck with a Flaming Sword will take the normal damage from the sword, but only a 50% chance of taking the fire/flame damage.

Evidence under **Bayes****theorem**... Specifically, it compares the probability of finding particular evidence if the accused were guilty, versus if they were not guilty. An example would be the probability of finding a person's hair at the scene, if guilty, versus if just passing through the scene. Suppose, that the proposition to be proven is that defendant was the source of a hair found at the crime scene. Before learning that the hair was a genetic match for the defendant’s hair, the factfinder believes that the odds are 2 to 1 that the defendant was the source of the hair. If she used

**Bayes**’**theorem**, she could multiply those prior odds by a “likelihood ratio” in order to update her odds after learning that the hair matched the defendant’s hair. The likelihood ratio is a statistic derived by comparing the odds that the evidence expert testimony of a match would be found if the defendant was the source with the odds that it would be found if defendant was not the source. It teaches that the relevance of evidence that a proposition is true...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evidence_under_Bayes_theorem

Machine Learning, etc: Naive **Bayes**vs. Logistic Regression... Naive

**Bayes**vs. Logistic Regression. There's often confusion as to the nature of the differences between Logistic Regression and Naive**Bayes**Classifier. One way to look at it is that Logistic Regression and NBC consider the same hypothesis space, but use different loss functions, which leads to different models for some datasets. To see that both logistic regression and naive**bayes**classifier consider the same hypothesis space we can rewrite Naive**Bayes**density as follows restricting attention to binary domain :. You can see that the conditional term is equivalent to logistic regression, so every possible conditional density that can be modelled by logistic regression can be modelled by Naive**Bayes**by setting \phi's aribrarily. So both logistic regression and Naive**Bayes**have the same hypothesis space, but optimize different objective functions. If empirical density is realizable by our model, then this coupling doesn't matter -- both conditional and marginal terms can achieve their respective maxima so ...http://yaroslavvb.blogspot.com/2006/04/naive-bayes-vs-logistic-regression.html?showComment=1259707359206

HyperparameterIn

**Bayes**ian statistics, a 'hyperparameter' is a parameter of a prior distribution ; the term is used to distinguish them from parameters of the model for the underlying system under analysis. For example, if one is using a beta distribution to model the distribution of the parameter 'p' of a Bernoulli distribution, then:. One may take a single value for a given hyperparameter, or one can iterate and take a probability distribution on the hyperparameter itself, called a hyperprior. One often uses a prior which comes from a parametric family of probability distributions – this is done partly for explicitness so one can write down a distribution, and choose the form by varying the hyperparameter, rather than trying to produce an arbitrary function, and partly so that one can 'vary' the hyperparameter, particularly in the method of ' conjugate prior s,' or for 'sensitivity analysis.'. When using a conjugate prior, the posterior distribution will be from the same family, but will have different hyperparameters, wh...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperparameter

Abstract Longitudinal data can be used to estimate the transition intensities between healthy and unhealthy states prior to death. An illness-death model for history of stroke is presented, where time-dependent transition intensities are regressed on a latent variable representing cognitive function. The change of this function over time is described by a linear growth model with random effects.

Frequentist inference and**Bayes**ian Inference are defined by their goals, not their methods.

Structure Learning with Nonparametric Decomposable Models Anton Schwaighofer, Mathäus Dejori, Volker Tresp, and Martin Stetter 2007. Abstract We present a novel approach to structure learning for graphical models. By using nonparametric estimates to model clique densities in decomposable models, both discrete and continuous distributions can be handled in a unified framework. Also, consistency of the underlying probabilistic model is guaranteed. Model selection is based on predictive assessment, with efficient algorithms that allow fast greedy forward and backward selection within the class of decomposable models. We show the validity of this structure learning approach on toy data, and on two large sets of gene expression data. Details Publication type Inproceedings. Published in Artificial N...

.. Debunking Two Nate Silver MythsThere is nothing big data about Nate's methods. That's big data. That is big data. The fact is, he didn't need big data to do this. Look at it this way, if a meteorologist says there a 90% chance of rain where you live and it doesn't rain, the forecast wasn't necessarily wrong, because 10% of the time it shouldn't rain - otherwise the odds would be something other than a 90% chance of rain. In a frequentist interpretation, saying that an outcome of an event has a probability X% of occuring, you're saying that if you were to run an infinite series of repetitions of the event, then on average, the outcome would occur in X out of every 100 events. What it says is: for any specific event, it will have one outcome. But given the current state of information available to me , I can have a certain amount of certainty about whether or not the event will occur. It just means that given the current state of my knowledge, I expect a particular outcome, and the information I know gives me that degree of certainty.

A big part of my professional life involves using statistical models to forecast rare political events, and I am deeply frustrated by frequent encounters with people who dismiss statistical forecasts out of hand see here and here for previous posts on the subject .Â It’s probably unrealistic of me to think so, but I am hopeful that recognition of the intuitive nature and power of**Bayes**ian updating might make it easier for skeptics to make use of my statistical forecasts and others like them.

'Bias correction': Use physical data to correct for bias in the simulation. Computer simulation modeling. Modeling of computer experiments typically uses a

**Bayes**ian framework. The basic idea of this framework is to model the computer simulation as an unknown function of a set of inputs. It is natural to see the simulation as a deterministic function that maps these 'inputs' into a collection of 'outputs'. For some simulations, such as climate models, evaluation of the output for a single set of inputs can require millions of computer hours. Gaussian process prior. The typical model for a computer code output is a Gaussian process. Owing to the**Bayes**ian framework, we fix our belief that the function f follows a Gaussian process, f \sim \operatorname{GP} m \cdot,C \cdot,\cdot, where m is the mean function and C is the covariance function.

New York data were used to estimate numerators for ICU and death, and two sources of data—medically attended cases in Milwaukee or self-reported influenza-like illness ILI in New York—were used to estimate ratios of symptomatic cases to hospitalizations. Using medically attended cases and estimates of the proportion of symptomatic cases medically attended, we estimated an sCFR of 0.048% 95% credible interval 0.026%–0.096%, sCIR of 0.239% 0.134%–0.458%, and sCHR of 1.44% 0.83%–2.64%. By using data on medically attended and hospitalized cases of pH1N1 infection in Milwaukee and information from New York City on hospitalizations, intensive care use, and deaths, the researchers estimate that the proportion of US cases with symptoms that died the sCFR during summer 2009 was 0.048%.

Cross-species transmission... 'Cross-species transmission CST ' is the phenomenon of transfer of viral infection from one species, usually a similar species, to another. Often seen in emerging viruses where one species transfers to another which in turn transfers to humans. Examples include HIV-AIDS, SARS, Ebola, Swine flu, rabies, and Bird flu. Faria NR, Suchard MA, Rambaut A, Streicker DG, Lemey P. Simultaneously reconstructing viral cross-species transmission history and identifying the underlying constraints. Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci. 2013 Feb 4;368 1614. The exact mechanism that facilitates the transfer is unknown, however, it is believed that viruses with a rapid mutation rate are able to overcome host-specific immunological defenses. This can occur between species that have high contact rates. It can also occur between species with low contact rates but usually through an intermediary species.

**Bayes**ian Operational Modal Analysis... '

**Bayes**ian Operational Modal Analysis' BAYOMA adopts a**Bayes**ian system identification approach for Operational Modal Analysis OMA. Operational Modal Analysis OMA aims at identifying the modal properties natural frequencies, damping ratio s, mode shape s, etc. The input excitations to the structure are not measured but are assumed to be ' ambient ' 'broadband random'. In a**Bayes**ian context, the set of modal parameters are viewed as uncertain parameters or random variables whose probability distribution is updated from the prior distribution before data to the posterior distribution after data. The peak s of the posterior distribution represents the most probable value s 'MPV' suggested by the data, while the spread of the distribution around the MPV reflects the remaining uncertainty of the parameters.

In the absence of input loading information, the identified modal properties from OMA often have significantly larger uncertainty or variability than their co...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayesian_Operational_Modal_Analysis

Deviance (statistics)In statistics, 'deviance' is a quality of fit statistic for a model that is often used for statistical hypothesis testing. It is a generalization of the idea of using the sum of squares of residuals in ordinary least squares to cases where model-fitting is achieved by maximum likelihood. Definition See also Notes References External links. The deviance for a model 'M' 0, based on a dataset 'y', is defined as:. : D y = -2 \Big \log \big p y\mid\hat \theta 0 \big -\log \big p y\mid\hat \theta s \big \Big .\,. Here \hat \theta 0 denotes the fitted values of the parameters in the model 'M' 0, while \hat \theta s denotes the fitted parameters for the "full model" or "saturated model" : both sets of fitted values are implicitly functions of the observations 'y'. Here the 'full model' is a model with a parameter for every observation so that the data are fitted exactly. In particular, suppose that 'M 1 ' contains the parameters in 'M 2 ', and 'k' additional parameters. Then, under the null hypothesis that 'M 2 ' is ...

**Bayes**ian Calibration of Computer Model Ensembles Pratola, M Los Alamos National Laboratory Friday 09 September 2011, 11:30-12:00 Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute. Abstract Using field observations to calibrate complex mathematical models of a physical process allows one to obtain statistical estimates of model parameters and construct predictions of the observed process that ideally incorporate all sources of uncertainty. Many of the methods in the literature use response surface approaches, and have demonstrated success in many applications. However there are notable limitations, such as when one has a small ensemble of model runs where the model outputs are high dimensional. In such instances, arriving at a response surface model that reasonably describes the process can be dicult, and computational issues may also render the approach impractical. In this talk we present an approach that has numerous beneifts compared to some popular m...http://www-old.newton.ac.uk/programmes/DAE/seminars/2011090911301.html

**Bayes**ian vector autoregression... in statistics

**bayes**ian vector autoregression bvar uses**bayes**ian methods to estimate a vector autoregression var in that respect the difference with standard var models lies in the fact that the model parameters are treated as random variable s and prior probabilities are assigned to them vector autoregressions are flexible statistical models that typically include many free parameters given the limited length of standard macroeconomic datasets**bayes**ian methods have become an increasingly popular way of dealing with this problem of over parameterization the general idea is to use informative priors to shrink the unrestricted model towards a parsimonious naïve benchmark thereby reducing parameter uncertainty and improving forecast accuracy see for a survey a typical example is the shrinkage prior proposed by robert litterman and subsequently developed by other researchers at university of minnesota which is known in the bvar literature as the minnesota prior the informativeness of the prior can be set by t...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayesian_vector_autoregression

Master **theorem**... In the analysis of algorithms, the 'master

**theorem**' provides a solution in asymptotic terms using Big O notation for recurrence relation s of types that occur in the analysis of many divide and conquer algorithm s. Not all recurrence relations can be solved with the use of the master**theorem**; its generalizations include the Akra–Bazzi method. : T n \in \Theta\left n {\log b a} \right. Next, we see if we satisfy the case 1 condition: : \log b a = \log 2 8 = 3>c. It follows from the first case of the master**theorem**that. : T n \in \Theta\left n {\log b a} \right = \Theta\left n {3} \right. : f n = \Theta\left n {c} \log {k} n \right where c = \log b a. : T n = \Theta\left n {c} \log {k+1} n \right. : a = 2, \, b = 2, \, c = 1, \, f n = 10n : f n = \Theta\left n {c} \log {k} n\right where c = 1, k = 0 Next, we see if we satisfy the case 2 condition: : \log b a = \log 2 2 = 1, and therefore, yes, c = \log b a. : T n = \Theta\left n {\log b a} \log {k+1} n\right = \Theta\left n {1} \log {1} n\right = \Theta\l...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_theorem

Building Application of Pythagorean **Theorem**... USING THE PYTHAGOREAN

**THEOREM**IN CONSTRUCTION. Often, when builders want to lay the foundation for the corners of a building, one of the methods they use is based on the Pythagorean**Theorem**serious. In the previous pages we explored some special right triangles. One of them is the 3-4-5 triangle. Builders use this special triangle or a multiple of it, say, 9-12-15 when they don't have a carpenter's square an instrument for constructing right angles handy. You need a Java-enabled browser to view this applet. This is the process they follow :. First, they peg a string down where they want a specific wall to be. Then, they measure in feet usually a length of the string that is a multiple of three, say two times three, and mark that off so they would be marking off a section that was six feet long. Call the marked endpoints points A and B, where B is where the corner is to be built. Where they want the corner to be point B they attach another piece of string. If we are basing this method on the Pythagorean T...http://geom.uiuc.edu/~hipp/app2.html

Cut-elimination **theorem**... It was originally proved by Gerhard Gentzen 1934 in his landmark paper "Investigations in Logical Deduction" for the systems LJ and LK formalising intuitionistic and classical logic respectively. The cut-elimination

**theorem**states that any judgement that possesses a proof in the sequent calculus that makes use of the 'cut rule' also possesses a 'cut-free proof', that is, a proof that does not make use of the cut rule., gives a 5-page proof of the elimination**theorem**., gives a very brief proof of the cut-elimination**theorem**. The LHS may have arbitrarily many or few formulae; when the LHS is empty, the RHS is a tautology. In LK, the RHS may also have any number of formulae—if it has none, the LHS is a contradiction, whereas in LJ the RHS may only have one formula or none: here we see that allowing more than one formula in the RHS is equivalent, in the presence of the right contraction rule, to the admissibility of the law of the excluded middle.

Chou's invariance **theorem**... Where a distance that would, in standard statistical theory, be defined as a Mahalanobis distance cannot be defined in this way because the relevant covariance matrix is singular, a replacement would be to reduce the dimension of the multivariate space until the relevant covariance matrix is invertible.

Background Essence Proof Applications References. When using Mahalanobis distance or covariant discriminant to calculate the similarity of two proteins based on their amino acid compositions, to avoid the divergence problem due to the normalization condition imposed to their 20 constituent components, a dimension-reduced operation is needed by leaving out one of the 20 components and making the remaining 19 components completely independent.

**Theorem**. Nyquist 's**theorem**is one of the most fundamental in digital signal processing. It says that when sampling a signal, the sample rate needs to be at least twice the highest frequency which appears in the signal. Sampling at this rate ensures that the signal can be reconstruct ed perfectly from the digital samples. It is quite easy to prove the sampling**theorem**, or at least to make it plausible, using the convolution**theorem**. Now sampling a function in time or space or whatever means to multiply it by a comb function. Thus we could just as well convolute the spectrum of the function in question which is its Fourier transform with the Fourier transform of the comb. The comb is essentially a collection of delta functions arranged in a regular grid. Delta functions are very easy to convolute: Just imagine you put a copy of the other function around every delta peak. And here we are: Obviously, if we want to retrieve our sampled function perfectly, the different copies of the spectrum may no...http://everything2.com/title/Nyquist%27s Theorem

**Bayesian inference on biopolymer models.**

MOTIVATION: Most existing bioinformatics methods are limited to making point estimates of one variable, e.g. the optimal alignment, with fixed input values for all other variables, e.g. gap penalties and scoring matrices. While the requirement to specify parameters remains one of the more vexing issues in bioinformatics, it is a reflection of a larger issue: the need to broaden the view on statistical inference in bioinformatics. RESULTS: The assignment of probabilities for all possible values of all unknown variables in a problem in the form of a posterior distribution is the goal of Bayesian inference. Here we show how this goal can be achieved for most bioinformatics methods that use dynamic programming. Specifically, a tutorial style description of a Bayesian inference procedure for segmentation of a sequence based on the heterogeneity in its composition is given. In addition, full Bayesian inference algorithms for sequence alignment are described. AVAILABILITY: Software and a set of transparencies for a tutorial describing these ideas are available at http://www.wadsworth.org/res&res/bioinfo/ (+info)

**Genetic determination of individual birth weight and its association with sow productivity traits using Bayesian analyses.**

Genetic association between individual birth weight (IBW) and litter birth weight (LBW) was analyzed on records of 14,950 individual pigs born alive between 1988 and 1994 at the pig breeding farm of the University of Kiel. Dams were from three purebred lines (German Landrace, German Edelschwein, and Large White) and their crosses. Phenotypically, preweaning mortality of pigs decreased substantially from 40% for pigs with < or = 1 kg weight to less than 7% for pigs with > 1.6 kg. For these low to high birth weight categories, preweaning growth (d 21 of age) and early postweaning growth (weaning to 25 kg) increased by more than 28 and 8% per day, respectively. Bayesian analysis was performed based on direct-maternal effects models for IBW and multiple-trait direct effects models for number of pigs born in total (NOBT) and alive (NOBA) and LBW. Bayesian posterior means for direct and maternal heritability and litter proportion of variance in IBW were .09, .26, and .18, respectively. After adjustment for NOBT, these changed to .08, .22, and .09, respectively. Adjustment for NOBT reduced the direct and maternal genetic correlation from -.41 to -.22. For these direct-maternal correlations, the 95% highest posterior density intervals were -.75 to -.07, and -.58 to .17 before and after adjustment for NOBT. Adjustment for NOBT was found to be necessary to obtain unbiased estimates of genetic effects for IBW. The relationship between IBW and NOBT, and thus the adjustment, was linear with a decrease in IBW of 44 g per additionally born pig. For litter traits, direct heritabilities were .10, .08, and .08 for NOBT, NOBA, and LBW, respectively. After adjustment of LBW for NOBA the heritability changed to .43. Expected variance components for LBW derived from estimates of IBW revealed that genetic and environmental covariances between full-sibs and variation in litter size resulted in the large deviation of maternal heritability for IBW and its equivalent estimate for LBW. These covariances among full-sibs could not be estimated if only LBW were recorded. Therefore, selection for increased IBW is recommended, with the opportunity to improve both direct and maternal genetic effects of birth weight of pigs and, thus, their vitality and pre- and postnatal growth.

**Bayesian mapping of multiple quantitative trait loci from incomplete outbred offspring data.**

A general fine-scale Bayesian quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping method for outcrossing species is presented. It is suitable for an analysis of complete and incomplete data from experimental designs of F2 families or backcrosses. The amount of genotyping of parents and grandparents is optional, as well as the assumption that the QTL alleles in the crossed lines are fixed. Grandparental origin indicators are used, but without forgetting the original genotype or allelic origin information. The method treats the number of QTL in the analyzed chromosome as a random variable and allows some QTL effects from other chromosomes to be taken into account in a composite interval mapping manner. A block-update of ordered genotypes (haplotypes) of the whole family is sampled once in each marker locus during every round of the Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithm used in the numerical estimation. As a byproduct, the method gives the posterior distributions for linkage phases in the family and therefore it can also be used as a haplotyping algorithm. The Bayesian method is tested and compared with two frequentist methods using simulated data sets, considering two different parental crosses and three different levels of available parental information. The method is implemented as a software package and is freely available under the name Multimapper/outbred at URL http://www.rni.helsinki.fi/mjs/. (+info)

**The validation of interviews for estimating morbidity.**

Health interview surveys have been widely used to measure morbidity in developing countries, particularly for infectious diseases. Structured questionnaires using algorithms which derive sign/symptom-based diagnoses seem to be the most reliable but there have been few studies to validate them. The purpose of validation is to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of brief algorithms (combinations of signs/symptoms) which can then be used for the rapid assessment of community health problems. Validation requires a comparison with an external standard such as physician or serological diagnoses. There are several potential pitfalls in assessing validity, such as selection bias, differences in populations and the pattern of diseases in study populations compared to the community. Validation studies conducted in the community may overcome bias caused by case selection. Health centre derived estimates can be adjusted and applied to the community with caution. Further study is needed to validate algorithms for important diseases in different cultural settings. Community-based studies need to be conducted, and the utility of derived algorithms for tracking disease frequency explored further. (+info)

**Bayesian analysis of birth weight and litter size in Baluchi sheep using Gibbs sampling.**

Variance and covariance components for birth weight (BWT), as a lamb trait, and litter size measured on ewes in the first, second, and third parities (LS1 through LS3) were estimated using a Bayesian application of the Gibbs sampler. Data came from Baluchi sheep born between 1966 and 1989 at the Abbasabad sheep breeding station, located northeast of Mashhad, Iran. There were 10,406 records of BWT recorded for all ewe lambs and for ram lambs that later became sires or maternal grandsires. All lambs that later became dams had records of LS1 through LS3. Separate bivariate analyses were done for each combination of BWT and one of the three variables LS1 through LS3. The Gibbs sampler with data augmentation was used to draw samples from the marginal posterior distribution for sire, maternal grandsire, and residual variances and the covariance between the sire and maternal grandsire for BWT, variances for the sire and residual variances for the litter size traits, and the covariances between sire effects for different trait combinations, sire and maternal grandsire effects for different combinations of BWT and LS1 through LS3, and the residual covariations between traits. Although most of the densities of estimates were slightly skewed, they seemed to fit the normal distribution well, because the mean, mode, and median were similar. Direct and maternal heritabilities for BWT were relatively high with marginal posterior modes of .14 and .13, respectively. The average of the three direct-maternal genetic correlation estimates for BWT was low, .10, but had a high standard deviation. Heritability increased from LS1 to LS3 and was relatively high, .29 to .37. Direct genetic correlations between BWT and LS1 and between BWT and LS3 were negative, -.32 and -.43, respectively. Otherwise, the same correlation between BWT and LS2 was positive and low, .06. Genetic correlations between maternal effects for BWT and direct effects for LS1 through LS3 were all highly negative and consistent for all parities, circa -.75. Environmental correlations between BWT and LS1 through LS3 were relatively low and ranged from .18 to .29 and had high standard errors. (+info)

**Thermodynamics and kinetics of a folded-folded' transition at valine-9 of a GCN4-like leucine zipper.**

Spin inversion transfer (SIT) NMR experiments are reported probing the thermodynamics and kinetics of interconversion of two folded forms of a GCN4-like leucine zipper near room temperature. The peptide is 13Calpha-labeled at position V9(a) and results are compared with prior findings for position L13(e). The SIT data are interpreted via a Bayesian analysis, yielding local values of T1a, T1b, kab, kba, and Keq as functions of temperature for the transition FaV9 right arrow over left arrow FbV9 between locally folded dimeric forms. Equilibrium constants, determined from relative spin counts at spin equilibrium, agree well with the ratios kab/kba from the dynamic SIT experiments. Thermodynamic and kinetic parameters are similar for V9(a) and L13(e), but not the same, confirming that the molecular conformational population is not two-state. The energetic parameters determined for both sites are examined, yielding conclusions that apply to both and are robust to uncertainties in the preexponential factor (kT/h) of the Eyring equation. These conclusions are 1) the activation free energy is substantial, requiring a sparsely populated transition state; 2) the transition state's enthalpy far exceeds that of either Fa or Fb; 3) the transition state's entropy far exceeds that of Fa, but is comparable to that of Fb; 4) "Arrhenius kinetics" characterize the temperature dependence of both kab and kba, indicating that the temperatures of slow interconversion are not below that of the glass transition. Any postulated free energy surface for these coiled coils must satisfy these constraints. (+info)

**Iterative reconstruction based on median root prior in quantification of myocardial blood flow and oxygen metabolism.**

The aim of this study was to compare reproducibility and accuracy of two reconstruction methods in quantification of myocardial blood flow and oxygen metabolism with 15O-labeled tracers and PET. A new iterative Bayesian reconstruction method based on median root prior (MRP) was compared with filtered backprojection (FBP) reconstruction method, which is traditionally used for image reconstruction in PET studies. METHODS: Regional myocardial blood flow (rMBF), oxygen extraction fraction (rOEF) and myocardial metabolic rate of oxygen consumption (rMMRO2) were quantified from images reconstructed in 27 subjects using both MRP and FBP methods. For each subject, regions of interest (ROIs) were drawn on the lateral, anterior and septal regions on four planes. To test reproducibility, the ROI drawing procedure was repeated. By using two sets of ROIs, variability was evaluated from images reconstructed with the MRP and the FBP methods. RESULTS: Correlation coefficients of mean values of rMBF, rOEF and rMMRO2 were significantly higher in the images reconstructed with the MRP reconstruction method compared with the images reconstructed with the FBP method (rMBF: MRP r = 0.896 versus FBP r = 0.737, P < 0.001; rOEF: 0.915 versus 0.855, P < 0.001; rMMRO2: 0.954 versus 0.885, P < 0.001). Coefficient of variation for each parameter was significantly lower in MRP images than in FBP images (rMBF: MRP 23.5% +/- 11.3% versus FBP 30.1% +/- 14.7%, P < 0.001; rOEF: 21.0% +/- 11.1% versus 32.1% +/- 19.8%, P < 0.001; rMMRO2: 23.1% +/- 13.2% versus 30.3% +/- 19.1%, P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: The MRP reconstruction method provides higher reproducibility and lower variability in the quantitative myocardial parameters when compared with the FBP method. This study shows that the new MRP reconstruction method improves accuracy and stability of clinical quantification of myocardial blood flow and oxygen metabolism with 15O and PET. (+info)

**Taking account of between-patient variability when modeling decline in Alzheimer's disease.**

The pattern of deterioration in patients with Alzheimer's disease is highly variable within a given population. With recent speculation that the apolipoprotein E allele may influence rate of decline and claims that certain drugs may slow the course of the disease, there is a compelling need for sound statistical methodology to address these questions. Current statistical methods for describing decline do not adequately take into account between-patient variability and possible floor and/or ceiling effects in the scale measuring decline, and they fail to allow for uncertainty in disease onset. In this paper, the authors analyze longitudinal Mini-Mental State Examination scores from two groups of Alzheimer's disease subjects from Palo Alto, California, and Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1981-1993 and 1986-1988, respectively. A Bayesian hierarchical model is introduced as an elegant means of simultaneously overcoming all of the difficulties referred to above. (+info)

### What are some interactive ways to present the Pythagroas Theorem?

We want a way to interact with our class while presenting the Pythagoras Theorem. Sorry it's in the wrong category!

----------

Have them make a right triangle with 3 pieces of different color yarn one being like 5in long for the hypot. and 4 for the length and 3 for the height. Then show them the formula explain it and tell them to calculate the hypot.. with the formula and then show them by they were right by measuring the string.

Or if you don't want to mess with string just draw and example on an over head using like 3cm 4cm and 5cm with different color marker and then turn it on with two sides labeled and have them work out the solution walk around check everyones and then show them they were right or correct them.

I would not put cottage cheese in a green salad, croutons or no. But if I was told to make salads with it in a restaurant, I would use a 1/3 cup scoop to make a pretty mound of the cheese. ∠°)

### Where can I buy the candy Everlasting Gobstoppers?

I want to buy a bunch of packets for my math class (I'm doing a project on a four-color theorem)

And how much would it cost?

i don't think buying them online is a good idea... what if they are old and melted? And wouldn't you have to pay shipping?

u think they'd have them at Sam's Club?

----------

Here in the area I live you can buy them at most stores. I have seen them at WalMart, CVS, Rite Aid, KMart, Drug stores, Walgreens, Gas Stations, Dollar General, and I just discovered them at the Dollar Tree.

If you buy them at the Dollar Tree you will pay only a dollar. Other places the prices are slightly higher. I have seen the prices as high as $1.49 a box.

The best price I found is on the net at this website...

http://www.candywarehouse.com/gobstoppers.html

24 boxes for $19.20.

I have found them in theater size boxes only.

### What is the best technique used to remembering misc things?

Or your best technique? Like reading, names, basic vocabulary. Aside from from the obvious.

The reason I ask is because I have been through some times that were difficult, and I believe that I taught myself to block out difficult things, but I think I have trained my memory to do this with everything. It makes life very difficult, especially when I communicate.

----------

The best thing is note it down on your diary if it is to be remembered. If it is a reminder of your work after completing your work put a tick mark on it with the reference what action you have taken on it. Revise very often when ever you feel free to update and finish your pending works.This is how I survive. I will forget what I ate in the morning. But I am 62 years old still I remember Newtons law and Pythagoras theorem. It is all the matter of our interest.

### How do you make a sandwhich?

Its really hard to remember all of the steps.

That is too complicated! Pretend your talking to a 2nd grader.

Why do I need this for homework, I've been hungry for the past 2 hours trying to figure out the mechanics of making a sandwhich.

----------

This can't be taught to a second grader. It takes a much higher level of understanding to get it right.

It's not possible until you first learn and fully comprehend the Ham Sandwich Theorem. When you finish making the object and you cut it, no matter how you cut it, you can always slice through it in way that the two halves have exactly equal amounts.

So, taking some bread, ham and cheese and you mix them up by placing some ham and cheese between 2 pieces of the bread you will have 3 fixed volumes. Then with some kind of plane, for example a slice of a knife, you bisect with this plane each, the ham, bread, and cheese so you can apply the theroem. This is the test to see if you actually succeeded in making a sandwich. You will have two pieces of the once whole piece but they probably won't be perfectly equal in size. Not to worry. Really all the stuff was cut exactly in half.

We can see this when we apply the Borsuk-Ulam theorem. n-dimensional space in which there are n globs of positive volume, there is always a hyperplane that cuts all the globs exactly in half.

So, once you apply the theorem in the final test for example by taking the 3 objects, bread, ham and cheese compressing them together in a certain order then put them into a blender, pulsing it a few times, after all those millions of slices, all the parts will be cut exactly in half. You then know you will have achieved success.

Now you try it. You can do it!

Take 2 pieces of bread. Find 2 other food objects that do not need further cooking and are sort of flatly shaped and put them between the bread. Compress gently.

### How to make a Star of David with 24 cupcakes?

I need to make a Star of David out of two triangles, made out of cupcakes. It's for a bar mitzvah. I've arranged different ways over and over, but nothing is right! Please help!!

Thanks!

----------

The Star of David is made with two triangles. ...this pic is a good one to go by because it shows the triangles as two different colors and makes it easier to see.

http://threesixty360.wordpress.com/2008/12/21/star-of-david-theorem/

To make your cake you will want to make the first triangle...using 6 cupcakes for each side (the point cupcakes will be counted twice so you will actually be using 15 cupcakes total for the first triangle.

After you have made it you will make the second triangle by placing a cupcake, on the outside of the triangle...place a cupcake between cupcake 3 and 4....of each side of the triangle. (leave enough room for another cupcake between.) This will now give you your six points. Now, go to the OUTSIDE of the triangle and put two cupcakes ...lining them up with the 3rd cupcake down on each side of your original first triangle......you then fit that "point" cupcake up next to them...you should then have a row of 6 cupcakes. For each of the other two points you will do the same thing.....count over to the 3rd cupcake from the point and place a cupcake on the "outside" of the triangle. This should finish the star. You should have used a total of 24 cupcakes.

If you ice all of the cupcakes white...then draw the line for the star, it will show up a lot plainer as a star...otherwise it tends to look like a bunch of cupcakes, gone wild.

I work in a supermarket bakery and have made these several times. It does work.

I will try to find a finished picture of one.

SPLEEN PAIN, DISEASES, Infection, ENLARGED SPLEEN

Hypersplenism/ Enlarged spleen

Hypersplenism is a type of disorder which causes the spleen to rapidly and prematurely destroy blood cells.

Causes & symptoms

Hypersplenism may be caused by a variety of disorders. Sometimes, it is brought on by a problem within the spleen itself and is referred to as primary hypersplenism. Secondary hypersplenism results from another disease such as chronic malaria, rheumatoid arthritis, tuberculosis, or polycythemia vera, a blood disorder.

Symptoms of hypersplenism include easy bruising, easy contracting of bacterial diseases, fever, weakness, heart palpitations, and ulcerations of the mouth, legs and feet. Individuals may also bleed unexpectedly and heavily from the nose or other mucous membranes, and from the gastrointestinal or urinary tracts. Most patients will develop an enlarged spleen, anemia, leukopenia, or abnormally low white blood cell counts, or thrombocytopenia, a deficiency of circulating platelets in the blood. Other symptoms may be presents that reflect the underlying disease that has caused hypersplenism.

An enlarged spleen is one of the symptoms of Malaria, Cirrhosis of the liver, leukaemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, polycythaemia, etc. Spleen enlarges when called on to remove massive numbers of red blood cells, defective cells, or bacteria from circulation. Splenomegaly occurs in about 10% of systemic lupus erythematosus patients. Sometimes, it is caused by recent viral infection, such as mononucleosis.

Homeopathic Medicines & Treatment for Pain in Spleen, Infection &, Enlarged Spleen :-

#Ceanothus [Cean]

The only sphere of action of this remedy seems to be in splenic troubles, and Burnett believes it to be a true organ remedy for the spleen. Its indications are deepseated pain in the splenic region, deep stitches, worse in damp weather, with enlargement of the spleen. Chronic pains in the spleen. Pain in whole left side, with shortness of breath. A splenic stitch usually requires one of the following remedies: Chelidonium, Berberis, Sulphur,Conium or Ceanothus. Scilla has pain in the left hypochondria region, and also in the epigastric region, relieved by lying on the right side. Cimicifuga. Bayes recommends this remedy in neuralgic pains in the splenic region with uterine complaints. Ranunculus bulbosus. Boenninghausen and Dunham considered this remedy of value in splenic troubles; soreness, stitches and pulsations in splenic region are present.

#Cinchona

This remedy corresponds to congestion, pain and stitches in the region of the spleen with swelling of the spleen, splenitis. Dull aching in region of spleen. Hyperaemia of spleen. Nervous system is sensitive, physical or mental effort aggravates. Chininum sulphuricum. Congestion, inflammation and enlargement of the spleen. Aranea diadema. Enlarged spleen. Especially useful for the chronic effects of malarial poisoning or in those who live in damp, wet places. Languor, lassitude, constant chilliness are useful symptoms. Grindelia robusta has pain in the splenic region; it has also enlargement and tenderness in this region. It seems to be applicable to any pain in the left side extending as low as the hip and as high as the nipple. It may be a sore aching or a keen cutting pain.

#Capsicum [Caps]

One of our most efficient remedies for sensitive swollen and enlarged spleens, according to Jahr. Arnica. Splenitis from injury, patient dull and apathetic. There is much testimony in favor of Arnica, especially where there is a typhoid tendency and dull or even acute pains. Bellis, which causes swelling in splenic region, Natrum muriaticum and Ferrum metallicum should also be thought of in enlarged spleen. Natrum muriaticum produces stitches, pressure and congestion in the spleen. Swollen spleens resulting from malarial fever. Patient anaemic, upper part of body emaciated, inclined to take cold; much quinine taken is an additional indication. Patient craves salt.

#Quercus

Enlarged spleen associated with alcoholic cirrhosis of liver, ankles swollen.

#Natrum mur

Swollen spleen accompanied by constipation and craving for salt, especially if person is oversensitive and gets even more upset when consolation is offered.
