On Selection Functions that Do Not Preserve Normality [chapter]

Wolfgang Merkle, Jan Reimann
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Kamae and Weiss and others have raised the question of how complex a language must be such that selecting according to the language does not preserve normality.  ...  We show that there are such languages that are only slightly more complicated than regular ones, namely, normality is preserved neither by deterministic one-counter languages nor by linear languages.  ...  Normality is not preserved by deterministic one-counter languages Proposition 14.  ...

Psychophysical Properties of Low-Frequency Hearing: Implications for Perceiving Speech and Music via Electric and Acoustic Stimulation [chapter]

René H. Gifford, Michael F. Dorman, Christopher A. Brown
2009 Advances in Oto-Rhino-Laryngology  
We show (a) that it is possible to preserve normal or near-normal nonlinear cochlear processing in the implanted ear following electric and acoustic stimulation surgery -though this is not the typical  ...  outcome; (b) that although low-frequency frequency selectivity is generally disrupted following implantation, some degree of frequency selectivity can be preserved, and (c) that neither nonlinear cochlear  ...  A portion of the results had been presented at the 2006 International Conference on Cochlear Implants and Other  ...

on intractability hypotheses from algebra and does not require CPU-intensive operations.  ...  We show analytically that although the data are transformed to achieve privacy, we can also get accurate clustering results by the safeguard of the global distances between data points.  ...  The data shared after the transformation to preserve privacy do not need to be normalized again.  ...

Appearances can deceive: even brave hearts can fail

2004 European Heart Journal  
This creates a potential selection bias that might impact on the findings. Additionally, hospitals participated on a voluntary basis so that the Survey does not reflect a representative sample.  ...  The trend is to describe the problem as clinical heart failure with preserved LV function, which is an admission that we do not yet adequately understand the pathophysiology.  ...

The Management of a Clinical T1b Renal Tumor in the Presence of a Normal Contralateral Kidney

Christopher J. Weight, David C. Miller, Steven C. Campbell, Ithaar H. Derweesh, Brian R. Lane, Edward M. Messing
2013 Journal of Urology  
Clearly there is still an essential role for PN in patients who do not have a contralateral kidney or when preservation of renal function is at a premium.  ...  However, the important concept that we should take away from EORTC 30904 is that it suggests that the functional advantage of PN in the setting of a normal contralateral kidney may not be as great as previously  ...

Diuretics as pathogenetic treatment for heart failure

Maya Guglin
2011 International Journal of General Medicine  
Without such remodeling, as in heart failure with preserved systolic function, they do not have a substrate to work on.  ...  Patients with heart failure with preserved systolic function do not have decreased cardiac output, and so do not fit into the classic paradigm of heart failure.  ...

Prostate Cancer Patient Characteristics Associated With a Strong Preference to Preserve Sexual Function and Receipt of Active Surveillance

James R Broughman, Ramsankar Basak, Matthew E Nielsen, Bryce B Reeve, Deborah S Usinger, Kiayni C Spearman, Paul A Godley, Ronald C Chen
2017 Journal of the National Cancer Institute  
In low-risk cancer, active surveillance is the option that best preserves patients' sexual function, but it is unknown if patient preference affects treatment selection.  ...  Men with early-stage prostate cancer have multiple options that have similar oncologic efficacy but vary in terms of their impact on quality of life.  ...  Although many men with low-risk disease report that preserving sexual function is a high priority, many do not receive active surveillance, which is the treatment most aligned with this preference.  ...

Turning it Upside Down: Areas of Preserved Cognitive Function in Schizophrenia

James M. Gold, Britta Hahn, Gregory P. Strauss, James A. Waltz
2009 Neuropsychology Review  
The documentation of preserved cognitive function in schizophrenia may serve to sharpen hypotheses about the biological mechanisms that are implicated in the illness.  ...  These islands of preserved performance suggest that the cognitive deficits in schizophrenia are not as general as they appear to be when assayed with clinical neuropsychological methods.  ...  Evidence of normal procedural learning does not necessarily imply normal basal ganglia function is schizophrenia.  ...

Information preserving multi-objective feature selection for unsupervised learning

Ingo Mierswa, Michael Wurst
2006 Proceedings of the 8th annual conference on Genetic and evolutionary computation - GECCO '06  
Although this might sound surprising from a supervised learning point of view, we exemplify this relationship on the problem of data clustering and show that existing approaches do not pose the optimization  ...  We show that unsupervised feature selection is inherently multi-objective and behaves differently from supervised feature selection in that the number of features must be maximized instead of being minimized  ...  Since there is a natural competition between maximizing the number of features nf and the selected cluster criterion we do not need to apply an artificial normalization factor.  ...

Monotonicity-Preserving Bootstrapped Kriging Metamodels for Expensive Simulations

Jack P. C. Kleijnen, Wim C. M. van Beers
2009 Social Science Research Network  
In practice, simulation analysts often know that the I/O function is monotonic. To obtain a Kriging metamodel that preserves this known shape, this article uses bootstrapping (or resampling).  ...  Parametric bootstrapping assuming normality may be used in deterministic simulation, but this article focuses on stochastic simulation (including discrete-event simulation) using distribution-free bootstrapping  ...  Acknowledgment We thank Dick den Hertog (Tilburg University) for his very useful comments on an earlier version.  ...
