(If there is no such n, then ρ(i)=∞.) Equation (*) is a discrete generalization of the classic ruin probability, and its value is represented as P k,i =Q k−i /Q k , where the sequence {Q k } k≥0 satisfies the recurrence relation of convolution type: Q 0≠0 and Q k =∑ j=0 k π j Q k−j+1. Since 1967 there have been many papers related to applications of the generalized classic ruin probability. The present survey is concerned only with one of the areas of application associated with asymptotic behavior of Q k as k→∞. The theorem on asymptotic behavior of Q k as k→∞ and further properties of that limiting sequence are given on pp. 22–23 of the aforementioned book by Takacs. In the present survey we discuss applications of Takacs’ asymptotic theorem and other related results in queueing theory, telecommunication systems and dams. Many of the results presented in this survey have appeared recently, and some of them are new. In addition, further applications of Takacs' theorem are discussed.]]> Wed 28 Sep 2016 15:16:27 EST ]]> Analysis of multiserver retrial queueing system: a martingale approach and an algorithm of solution Wed 28 Sep 2016 15:16:26 EST ]]> The Euler-Maruyama approximations for the CEV model Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:55:28 EST ]]> Hydrogen species within the metals: role of molecular hydrogen ion H2+ Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:55:27 EST ]]> Planet gaps in the dust layer of 3D protoplanetary disks II: observability with ALMA Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:48:31 EST ]]> The effective bandwidth problem revisited Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:48:28 EST ]]> Condensate splitting in an asymmetric double well for atom chip based sensors Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:41:28 EST ]]> Efficient and effective random testing using the Voronoi Diagram Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:34:29 EST ]]> High-precision observations of relativistic binary and millisecond pulsars Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:27:33 EST ]]> Effects of WC particle size on deposition of cold spray WC-Co coatings Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:27:31 EST ]]> High-precision wavelength calibration of astronomical spectrographs with laser frequency combs Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:27:30 EST ]]> Three-dimensional nonlinear optical endoscopy Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:27:29 EST ]]> Substitute governance structure and the effect of monitoring: evidence from Bangladesh Wed 28 Sep 2016 14:27:27 EST ]]> Infrared nerve stimulation: modelling of photon transport and heat conduction Thu 29 Sep 2016 22:37:26 EST ]]> Photoluminescence in delta-doped InGaAs/GaAs single quantum wells Thu 29 Sep 2016 22:23:27 EST ]]> Steep anomalous dispersion in coherently prepared Rb vapor Thu 29 Sep 2016 22:17:42 EST ]]> Learning social skills with 2D animated social stories for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders Thu 29 Sep 2016 22:16:29 EST ]]> Void formation and spatial distribution in plasma sprayed Nd-Fe-B coatings Thu 29 Sep 2016 22:16:27 EST ]]> Lambda-CDM halo density profiles: where do actual halos converge to NFW ones?

Multiple 1–2 kpc size subcomponents of emission, or 'clumps', are detected within the Hα spatial emission which extends over 6–10 kpc in four galaxies, resolved compact emission (r < 3 kpc) is detected in five galaxies and extended regions of Hα emission are observed in the remaining four galaxies. We discuss these data in the context of different snapshots in a merger sequence and/or the evolutionary stages of coalescence of star-forming regions in an unstable disc. We find evidence of ordered orbital motion in galaxies as expected from disc models and the highest values of velocity dispersion (σ > 100 km s−1) in the most compact sources. This unique data set reveals that the most luminous star-forming galaxies at z > 1 are gaseous unstable discs indicating that a different mode of star formation could be feeding gas to galaxies at z > 1, and lending support to theories of cold dense gas flows from the intergalactic medium.]]> Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:40:49 EST ]]> A next generation deep 2-mu m Survey: reconnoitering the dark ages Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:40:31 EST ]]> Antlia Dwarf Galaxy: distance, quantitative morphology and recent formation history via statistical field correction Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:40:30 EST ]]> New constraint on cosmological variation of the proton-to-electron mass ratio from Q0528-250 Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:40:27 EST ]]> Ultrahigh nonlinear nanoshell plasmonic waveguide with total energy confinement Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:33:27 EST ]]> Determination of c and phi from IDT and unconfined compression testing and numerical analysis Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:19:26 EST ]]> Powder metallurgy: a promising route for bone implants fabrication Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:12:43 EST ]]> Morphology of galaxies in the WINGS clusters Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:05:29 EST ]]> Global structure and kinematics of stellar haloes in cosmological hydrodynamic simulations Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:05:27 EST ]]> Constraint on a variation of the proton-to-electron mass ratio from H 2 absorption towards quasar Q2348-011 Thu 29 Sep 2016 09:05:27 EST ]]> The 6dF Galaxy Survey: stellar population trends across and through the Fundamental Plane Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:58:30 EST ]]> Numerical investigation of breaking waves in spectral environment Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:51:28 EST ]]> Effect of positron: atom interactions on the annihilation gamma spectra of molecules Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:51:27 EST ]]> Observations of Kelvin-Helmholtz instability at the air-water interface in a circular domain Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:44:31 EST ]]> The development of a novel approach to the design of microdevices Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:44:30 EST ]]> The evolution of early-type galaxies in clusters from z ~ 0.8 to z ~ 0: the ellipticity distribution and the morphological mix MB+ 1.208z > −21. Analysing this sample, we do not recover exactly the same results as the mass-limited sample. This indicates that the selection criteria are crucial to characterize the galactic properties: the choice of the magnitude ‘delimited’ sample implies the loss of many less-massive galaxies and so it biases the final conclusions. Moreover, although we are adopting the same selection criteria, our results in the magnitude-‘delimited’ sample are also not in agreement with those of Holden et al. This is due to the fact that our and their low-zsamples have a different magnitude distribution because the Holden et al. sample suffers from incompleteness at faint magnitudes.]]> Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:44:29 EST ]]> ICT leadership in schools: part 1 Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:44:27 EST ]]> Coherence and collective oscillations of a two-component Bose-Einstein condensate Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:44:26 EST ]]> PTF10iya: a short-lived, luminous flare from the nuclear region of a star-forming galaxy Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:37:39 EST ]]> Citations to Australian astronomy: 5 and 10 year benchmarks ~ 7.]]> Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:37:38 EST ]]> Mining functionally novel association rules: a domain-driven data mining approach using biomedical literature and ontology Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:37:38 EST ]]> Evaluation of methods for the rapid extraction of the auditory brainstem response from underlying electroencephalogram −20 dB. In a separate study, wavelet denoising methods were analysed as a rapid extraction system by initially applying them to simulated ABRs followed by application to ABRs recorded from human participants. The previously reported latency-intensity curve of the ABR wave V was used as the reference to determine the variation tracking capability of these wavelet methods. The application of the wavelet methods to the recorded ABRs required validation of threshold functions and time-windows as an integral part of this research. To arrive at more accurate results, the wavelet study was extended to observe the effect of shift-variant discrete wavelet transform and the shift-invariant stationary wavelet transform with the tested wavelet methods. It was revealed that the cyclic-shift-tree-denoising wavelet method with the discrete wavelet transform is the most effective since it produce significantly lower MSEs comparedto other methods (p< 0.01) and producing an optimum mean square error of 0.18 (SD =0.01). This required an ensemble of only 32 epochs to extract a fully featured ABR with latency variations associated with the latency-intensity curve. However, use of the computationally redundant stationary wavelet transform yielded significantly better results (p< 0.01) compared to the discrete wavelet transform with a MSE of 0.11 (SD =0.01). The resultant 32 epochs is a significant improvement compared to conventional moving time averaging which uses approximately 1024 epochs to extract the ABR. The systematic analysis of rapid extraction of the ABR concluded that CSTD wavelet method produced the optimum result with only an ensemble of 32 epochs to produce an ABR with characteristic features and their time-scale variations out performing ARX modelling methods. Future developments of this work could include recording the ABR in an ambulatory mode to document and understand the normal population, and such developments could also find subsequent clinical applications.]]> Thu 29 Sep 2016 08:37:28 EST ]]>
