Reflected forward-backward SDEs and obstacle problems with boundary conditions

In this paper we study a class of forward-backward stochastic differential equations with reflecting boundary conditions (FBSDER for short). More precisely, we consider the case in which the forward component of the FBSDER is restricted to a fixed, convex region, and the backward component will stay, at each fixed time, in a convex region that may depend on time and is possibly...

Integrating epigenetic, genetic, and phenotypic data to uncover gene-region associations with triglycerides in the GOLDN study

BackgroundThere has been significant interest in investigating genome-wide and epigenome-wide associations with lipids. Testing at the gene or region level may improve power in such studies.MethodsWe analyze chromosome 11 cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) methylation levels and single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotypes from the original Genetics of Lipid Lowering Drugs and...

An Optimized Computational Framework for Isolation Forest

Isolation Forest or iForest is one of the outstanding outlier detectors proposed in recent years. Yet, in the model setting, it is mainly based on the technique of randomization and, as a result, it is not clear how to select a proper attribute and how to locate an optimized split point on a given attribute while building the isolation tree. Aiming to the two issues, we propose...

The Parameters Selection of PSO Algorithm influencing On performance of Fault Diagnosis

The particle swarm optimization (PSO) is an optimization algorithm based on intelligent optimization. Parameters selection of PSO will play an important role in performance and efficiency of the algorithm. In this paper, the performance of PSO is analyzed when the control parameters vary, including particle number, accelerate constant, inertia weight and maximum limited velocity...

A mixed-integer linear programming approach for robust state estimation

Association between retinal neuronal degeneration and visual function impairment in type 2 diabetic patients without diabetic retinopathy

The changes in retinal thickness and visual function in type 2 diabetic patients without clinical evidence of diabetic retinopathy were evaluated. A total of 141 diabetic subjects without retinopathy and 158 healthy subjects were enrolled in this study. Superior macular ganglion cell complex thicknesses were significantly decreased in diabetic cases, and no significant...

Tuning ultrafine manganese oxide nanowire synthesis seeded by Si particles and its superior Li storage behaviors

The nanostructure and the dimension of materials greatly affect their performance and function. It is important to develop synthesis strategies that enable the control of the materials’ morphology and structure and further reduce their size. In the present work, we report a novel synthesis approach that utilizes Si nanoparticles for synthesizing ultrafine MnO nanowires. The...

Encapsulation of Phase Change Materials Using Layer-by-Layer Assembled Polyelectrolytes

Phase change materials absorb the thermal energy when changing their phases (e.g., solid-to-liquid) at constant temperatures to achieve the latent heat storage. The major drawbacks such as limited thermal conductivity and leakage prevent the PCMs from wide application in desired areas. In this work, an environmentally friendly and low cost approach, layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly...

Reliability and Validity of the Chinese Version Appropriateness Evaluation Protocol

Objective To adapt the Appropriateness Evaluation Protocol (AEP) to the specific settings of health care in China and to validate the Chinese version AEP (C-AEP). Methods Forward and backward translations were carried out to the original criteria. Twenty experts participated in the consultancy to form a preliminary version of the C-AEP. To ensure applicability, tests of...

The hospital of the future in China: China’s reform of public hospitals and trends from industrialized countries

Hospitals compose a large share of total health spending in most countries, and thus have been the target of reforms to improve efficiency and reduce costs. In China, the government implemented national health care reform to improve access to essential services and reduce high out-of-pocket medical spending. A key component is the comprehensive reform of public hospitals on a...

The Role of TLR2 and 4-Mediated Inflammatory Pathways in Endothelial Cells Exposed to High Glucose

Postprandial hyperglycemia induces inflammation and endothelial dysfunction resulting in vascular complications in patients with diabetes. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are central to the regulation of inflammatory responses through activation of nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-ĸB). This study examined the role of TLR2 and 4 in regulating inflammation and endothelial dysfunction when...

Clarithromycin and dexamethasone show similar anti-inflammatory effects on distinct phenotypic chronic rhinosinusitis: an explant model study

Background Phenotype of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) may be an important determining factor of the efficacy of anti-inflammatory treatments. Although both glucocorticoids and macrolide antibiotics have been recommended for the treatment of CRS, whether they have different anti-inflammatory functions for distinct phenotypic CRS has not been completely understood. The aim of this...
