  • Prevalence
  • Here, we estimate the prevalence and direction of black-swan events (heavy-tailed process noise) in 609 animal populations after accounting for population dynamics (productivity, density dependence, and typical stochasticity). (pnas.org)
  • parameters
  • Blue Mussels Mytilus edulis are the main food source for Longtailed Ducks in the southern Baltic Sea and here we have used both modelled and measured raw data on Mytilus abundances, patchiness and various bathymetric parameters to study Long-tailed Duck habitat preferences. (lu.se)
  • In particular, standard methods such as least-squares fitting are known to produce systematically biased estimates of parameters for power-law distributions and should not be used in most circumstances. (scribd.com)
  • respectively
  • In double logarithmic plot of L (distance of a base to the next base, x-axis) vs F (frequencies of a base at L, y-axis), each value of four bases was expressed in y = ae -bx at L = 1 ~ 15, and y = Ux + W (power-law-tail) at L = more than 16 bases, respectively, in a single-strand of DNA.

  • results
  • The dots in the graph represent the mean results from 8, 16, 32, and so on, up to 4096 trials from each of the distributions I tested. (statisticsblog.com)
  • These results indicated that the power-law-tail would be specific for the complexity of organisms in individual genome, and might be a new index for cells. (ccsenet.org)
  • properties
  • Over the last decade there has been a marked interest in a Laplace distribution and its properties and generalizations, especially in the framework of financial applications. (repec.org)
  • Every function with these four properties is a CDF, i.e., for every such function, a random variable can be defined such that the function is the cumulative distribution function of that random variable. (wikipedia.org)
  • different
  • The graph at the top of this post shows how the Obesity index converges for different distributions. (statisticsblog.com)
  • The graph gives a feel for how many trials would be needed to distinguish between different distributions based on their Obesity index. (statisticsblog.com)
  • Installing Tails is not quite as simple as installing other distributions, and the method is a little different depending on if you're using Windows, Ubuntu/Debian/Mint or other forms of GNU/Linux. (ghacks.net)

  • maximum
  • Based on the fact that one cannot be assured of observing population maximum lifespans in finite samples, in previous work, we constructed and validated several tests of difference in the upper parts of lifespan distributions between a treatment group and a control group by testing whether the probabilities that observations are above some threshold defining 'old' or being in the tail of the survival distribution are equal in the two groups.

  • Tails is ideal for keeping yourself and your activities hidden as previously stated, which is absolutely perfect for those who want to do their best to have 'big brother' unable to spy on their activities, as much as possible. (ghacks.net)
