Beta Reduction Constraints [chapter]

Manuel Bodirsky, Katrin Erk, Alexander Koller, Joachim Niehren
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we introduce beta reduction constraints to describe beta reduction steps between partially known lambda terms.  ...  We show that beta reduction constraints can be expressed in an extension of CLLS by group parallelism.  ...  Now we show how to encode beta reduction constraints in CLLS.  ...

Smart Beta: Managing Diversification of Minimum Variance Portfolios [chapter]

Jean-Charles Richard, Thierry Roncalli
2015 Risk-Based and Factor Investing  
In particular, we show that the smart beta portfolios differ because they implicitly target different levels of volatility reduction.  ...  We also develop new smart beta strategies by managing the level of volatility reduction and show that they present appealing properties compared with the traditional risk-based portfolios.  ...  But once we impose the same level of volatility reduction, the differences between smart beta portfolios vanish even if they consider different weight constraints.  ...

Beta-blockers in sepsis: time to reconsider current constraints?

E.C. Boerma, M. Singer
2017 British Journal of Anaesthesia  
Beta-blockers in sepsis; time to reconsider current constraints?  ...  New insights into the mechanisms of action of beta-blockers, and the potential consequences for clinical practice, are continually evolving.  ...  Analogous to statins, a significant reduction in 30-day mortality was observed in a large cohort of mixed ICU patients (including those with sepsis) who were taking beta-blockers prior to ICU admission  ...

Underspecified beta reduction

Manuel Bodirsky, Katrin Erk, Joachim Niehren, Alexander Koller
2001 Proceedings of the 39th Annual Meeting on Association for Computational Linguistics - ACL '01  
We show how to do this using -reduction constraints in the constraint language for ¡ -structures (CLLS).  ...  Underspecified versions can produce compact descriptions of all readings, but it is not known how to perform -reduction on these descriptions.  ...  By way of example, consider the ¡ structure in Fig. 5 Beta reduction constraints Correspondences are also used in the definition of -reduction constraints (Bodirsky et al., 2001) .  ...

Evaluation of Incident Management Impacts Using Stochastic Dynamic Traffic Assignment

Anil Yazici, Camille Kamga, Kaan Ozbay
2015 Transportation Research Procedia  
In this paper, a dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) formulation with probabilistic capacity constraints is suggested in order to incorporate accident-induced random capacity reductions into evaluation of  ...  The results also show that rather than reducing the average duration, comparable delay reductions can be achieved by reducing the variance while keeping the average accident duration unchanged.  ...  s (2003) findings, specifically Beta (6.83057, 4.05907) for capacity reduction for one lane out of three lanes blocked, which means that remaining capacity is distributed by Beta (4.05907, 6.83057).  ...

Closure analysis in constraint form

Jens Palsberg
1995 ACM Transactions on Programming Languages and Systems  
We also prove a subject-reduction result: closure information is still valid after beta-reduction. The core of our proof technique is to define closure analysis using a constraint system.  ...  This article answers the question; both closure analysis and others are correct with respect to arbitrary beta-reduction.  ...  This follows from the subject-reduction property: terms stay safe after beta-reduction.  ...

Finally, the Sobel test (p < .05) indicated that there was a statistically significant reduction in the beta weight of partner—malicious attributions once forgiveness was added, satisfying the final criterion  ...  Table 2b, Model 2, presents beta weights and indicators of significance for this model’s prediction of forgiveness.  ... 

Sublethal effects of beta-cypermethrin modulate interspecific interactions between specialist and generalist aphid species on soybean

Yanyan Qu, Farman Ullah, Chen Luo, Lucie S. Monticelli, Anne-Violette Lavoir, Xiwu Gao, Dunlun Song, Nicolas Desneux
2020 Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety  
Aphis glycines showed higher fecundity than A. solani on soybean and the aphids caused unbalanced reduction in population growth on each other.  ...  However, the LC5 of beta-cypermethrin enhanced the interspecific inhibition of fecundity between the two aphid species.  ...  The LC 5 of beta-cypemethrin caused the acceleration of interspecific competition and the reduction of aphidinduced susceptibility of hosts.  ...

Propranolol Reduces Portal Vein Diameter in Schistosomal Liver with Portal Hypertension: A Prospective Cohort Study

Edford Sinkala, Michael Vinikoor, Kanekwa Zyambo, Ellen Besa, Bright Nsokolo, Paul Kelly
2020 American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene  
The primary outcome was reduction in PVD. Beta-blockade and splenic size reduction were secondary outcomes.  ...  This suggests that ultrasound could be useful in monitoring response and compliance to beta-blockers, especially in resource-constraint areas where portal hypertension measurement facilities are unavailable  ...  DISCUSSION Beta-blockers are an important integral part in managing schistosomiasis-related portal hypertension. 23, 26, 29 Our data suggest that propranolol, a beta-blocker, is associated with reduction  ...

2015 Case Studies in Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing  
In a second, more advanced formulation, referred to as "Beta" (BT) method [8] , a relaxation of the constraints is achieved by defining additional design variables, the so-called beta values.  ...  In addition to the weight response, new responses are created as a sum of each functional response and of the related beta value, and the constraints are defined on these new responses, as shown in Fig  ...
