MATEDA: A suite of EDA programs in Matlab
This paper describes MATEDA-2.0, a suite of programs in Matlab for estimation of distribution algorithms. The package allows the optimization of single and multi-objective problems with estimation of distribution algorithms ...
A quantitative analysis of estimation of distribution algorithms based on Bayesian networks
The successful application of estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) to solve different kinds of problems has reinforced their candidature as promising black-box optimization tools. However, their internal behavior is ...
A sensitivity study of bias and variance of k-fold cross-validation in prediction error estimation
In the machine learning field the performance of a classifier is usually measured in terms of prediction error. In most real-world problems, the error cannot be exactly calculated and it must be estimated. Therefore, it’s ...
On the application of estimation of distribution algorithms to multi-marker tagging SNP selection
This paper presents an algorithm for the automatic selection of a minimal subset of tagging single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using an estimation of distribution algorithm (EDA). The EDA stochastically searches the ...
KAF: Kyoto Annotation Framework
This document presents the current draft of KAF: Kyoto Annotation Framework to be used within the KYOTO project. KAF aims to provide a reference format for the representation of semantic annotations.
Choice experiment study on the willingness to pay to improve
Modern forms of energy are an important vehicle towards poverty alleviation in rural areas of developing countries. Most developing countries’ households heavily rely on wood fuel which impact their health and social–economic ...
Predicting Betas: Two new methods
Betas play a central role in modern finance. The estimation of betas from historical data and their extrapolation into the future is of considerable practical interest. We propose two new methods: the first is a direct ...
Survey of the fatty acid composition of Canadian beef: Backfat and longissimus lumborum muscle
(Agricultural Institute of Canada, 2009-09)
[EN]A survey of Canadian retail beef was undertaken with emphasis on the trans fatty acid (TFA) and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) isomers, and compared with current health recommendations. Thirty striploin steaks were ...
Phenotypic correlations of fatty acid composition among intramuscular, subcutaneous and intermuscular fat tissues in concentrate-fed beef cattle of differing genotypes
(Agricultural Institute of Canada, 2009-03)
[EN]In an attempt to predict intramuscular fatty acid composition using easily accessible fat depots, between-tissue correlations were studied in 75 Asturiana de los Valles bulls with different levels of muscular hypertrophy, ...
Functional bent-core liquid crystals studied through second harmonic generation and X-ray diffraction
(Servicio Editorial de la Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatearen Argitalpen Zerbitzua, 2009-10-25)
Los moléculas mesógenas con forma de banana (bent-core) dan lugar a nuevas fases cristal líquido con diversas funcionalidades de interés en aplicaciones tecnológicas. En esta tesis se han estudiado y caracterizado nuevos ...
