Bias correcting confidence intervals for a nearly common property

Daren B.H. Cline, Clifford H. Spiegelman
1991 Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems  
Bias correcting confidence intervals for a nearly common property. Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems, 11: 131-136. Confidence intervals are an important tool.  ...  Realistic confidence intervals account for both random errors and systematic errors (bias). We improve the usual method for combining random and systematic errors.  ...  When the sample size is 2 or 3 (a common Occurrence in one of the authors' experience) and the bias is large (M/u > 0.5) then the tail-approximation method is more accurate and produces shorter intervals  ...

APPROXIMATING THE MAXIMUM ISOMORPHIC AGREEMENT SUBTREE IS HARD

Paola Bonizzoni, Gianluca Della Vedova, Giancarlo Mauri
2000 International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science  
The Maximum Isomorphic Agreement Subtree (MIT) problem is one of the simplest versions of the Maximum Interval Weight Agreement Subtree method (MIWT) which is used to compare phylogenies.  ...  In this paper, the approximation complexity of the MIT problem is investigated, showing that it cannot be approximated in polynomial time within factor log δ n for any δ > 0 unless NP ⊆ DTIME(2 polylog  ...  Afterwards successive improvements have appeared in literature [4, 12, 15] .  ...

2018 Circulation Journal  
However, exercise-induced syncope is a common feature in both CPVT and LQT1.  ...  The prognosis of CPVT is very poor and approximately 40% of patients die within 10 years of the diagnosis. 8 Beta-blockers and calcium antagonists improve the prognosis but cannot prevent sudden death.  ...  The prognosis of CPVT is very poor and approximately 40% of patients die within 10 years of the diagnosis. 8 Beta-blockers and calcium antagonists improve the prognosis but cannot prevent sudden death  ...
