  • Theory of self-adjoint S-parameter sensitivities for lossless non-homogenous transmission-line modelling problems

    The authors present, for the first time, a comprehensive theory for self- adjoint S-parameter sensitivities of non-homogenous transmission-line modelling problems. They show that wideband S-parameter sensitivities can be efficiently calculated without carrying out any adjoint simulations. The N<sub>p</sub> original simulations used to calculate the S-parameters of an N<sub>p</sub>-port electromagnetic structure supply the sensitivities as well. The authors also present their approach for two different types of nodes utilised in transmission-line modelling. The efficiency and accuracy of their algorithms are illustrated through a number of examples. Good match is obtained between their self-adjoint sensitivities and those calculated using finite differences at the response level.

  • Support tools for simulation-based optimal design of power networks with embedded power electronics

    Summary form only given. The paper presents a gradient-based nonlinear optimization wrapper for an electromagnetic transient simulation program to assists in the design of hardware and control parameters of FACTS apparatus. A new second-order sensitivity analysis method is introduced that quantifies the sensitivity of the optimal solution to parameter uncertainties. Using this approach, the sensitivity of the harmonic elimination capability of a pulse- width modulated voltage source converter to variations in switching angles is investigated. The paper also adapts the method of Pareto optimization to the simulation-based design of FACTS apparatus when multiple design objectives are to be satisfied. The developed Pareto optimization tool generates a Pareto frontier plot to visualize the design tradeoffs between the multiple objectives. The effectiveness of the tool is demonstrated through a design example that selects optimal values for the dc-bus capacitor and the control settings of a STATCOM.

  • Second-trimester triple serum tests in women screening for down's syndrome: A meta analysis

    Objective: Systematically review the value of second-trimester triple serum tests screening for Down's syndrome by using meta analysis. Method: The literature on PubMed, Journal of Medicine Library, CNKI, Web of Knowledge from January 2000 to April 2014 concerning second-trimester Down's syndrome screening was retrieved by computer or by hand. The literature was evaluated based on the QUADAS quality evaluation standard. The basic fourfold table data were extracted from the literature. Statistical analysis was conducted by using SPSS and Meta-Disc1.4. Results: Altogether 166 related articles were retrieved. According to the standard of literature selection and QUADAS quality evaluation, eventually 14 articles were brought into research. The meta analysis results of second-trimester triple serum tests screening for Down's syndrome were as follows: the sensitivity was 77%, the specificity was 93%, + LR was 13.92,-LR was 0.26, DOR was 40.82, the AUC of SROC was 0.9133, and Q*= 0.8458. In addition, the results of subgroup analyses based on age showed that the pooled sensitivity of high age group is higher than low age group, which indicated that the second-trimester serum triple serum tests screening for Down's syndrome could achieve better results for advanced maternal age. Conclusion: The second-trimester triple serum tests screening for Down's syndrome had a certain sensitivity and specificity, but for the regions with good medical and health care, they could consider increasing the serum screening indexes or adding ultrasound screening method so as to further improve the detection rate of Down's syndrome children and reduce the false- positive rate.

  • Classification of human radiation wave on the Upper body segment

    Endogenous electromagnetic field of the human body have been found to radiate into the space surround the body. The field is called as human radiation wave that encircle the physical body and vibrates at certain frequency. In this paper, a classification technique that is used to classify male and female gender through frequency analysis of human radiation wave is proposed, which the study focus on Upper body part in human body segmentation. For classification purpose, the k-Nearest Neighbor (KNN) algorithm is employed, which the results show that 100% classification is produced on accuracy, sensitivity and specificity. This outcome demonstrates that KNN is successfully classifying the male and female frequencies on human Upper body segment.

  • Detecting Malicious Web Scraping Activity: A Study with Diverse Detectors

    We present results on the use of diverse monitoring tools for the detection of malicious web scraping activity. We have carried out an analysis of a real dataset of Apache HTTP Access logs for an e-commerce application provided by a large multinational IT provider for the global travel and tourism industry. Two tools have been used to detect scraping activities based on the HTTP requests: a commercial tool, and an in-house tool called Arcane. We show the benefits that can be achieved through the use of both systems, in terms of overall sensitivity and specificity, and we discuss the potential sources of diversity between the tool's alert patterns.

  • Ventricular repolarization variability for hypoglycemia detection

    Hypoglycemia is the most acute and common complication of Type 1 diabetes and is a limiting factor in a glycemic management of diabetes. In this paper, two main contributions are presented; firstly, ventricular repolarization variabilities are introduced for hypoglycemia detection, and secondly, a swarm-based support vector machine (SVM) algorithm with the inputs of the repolarization variabilities is developed to detect hypoglycemia. By using the algorithm and including several repolarization variabilities as inputs, the best hypoglycemia detection performance is found with sensitivity and specificity of 82.14% and 60.19%, respectively.

  • Using linear discriminant function to detect eyes closing activities through alpha wave

    This work presents an alternative method to detect events correlated to eyes opening and closing, based on electroencephalography (EEG) measured from the occipital lobe. The goal is to propose a method based on linear discriminant function to classify segments of EEG signals that contain activities originated by eyes closing. A linear discriminant function presented by Fisher is employed to detect these activities on segments of 2s. This method showed a good values of sensitivity (SE ≥ 85 %) and specificity (SP ≥ 60 %). This approach can be used to control the switching of a brain computer interface (BCI).

  • A novel method for RNA secondary structure prediction

    In this paper, we propose PSOfold, a particle swarm optimization for RNA secondary structure prediction. PSOfold is based on the recently published IPSO. We present two strategies to improve the performance of IPSO. Firstly, in order to boost the competence in searching an optimal solution, fuzzy logic control is used to adaptively adjust the parameters in PSO. Accordingly, three fuzzy logic controls are designed by which the inertia weight, learning factors and the number of ants are tuned respectively. Secondly, to further settle the stem permutation problem, we put forward a solution conversion strategy (SCS), which can transform discrete values of stems into an ordered stem combination, thereby supplying an enhanced solution to evaluation of objective function. An evaluation of the performance of PSOfold in terms of prediction accuracy is made via comparison with one dynamic programming algorithm mfold and four metaheuristics, IPSO, ACRNA, RnaPredict, SARNA- Predict and mfold for ten individual known structures. PSOfold is able to predict structures with higher prediction accuracy than the other metaheuristic based methods on certain sequences, and has comparable performance compared with mfold.

  • Relative sensitivity of full-wave and half-wave detectors in radiometry

    The sensitivity in the measurement of Gaussian noise power using a half-wave detector can suffer degradation relative to that of a full-wave detector, in cases where the bandwidth of the input waveform is not small compared to the center frequency. There are two physical mechanisms that suggest a basis for this effect. The half-wave detector responds to only half of the input waveform, resulting in possible loss of information. Also, in the half-wave detector a component of the input spectrum feeds through the diode and adds to the noise that is subsequently filtered by averaging at the detector output. This feedthrough component does not occur in full-wave detectors. The phenomena are examined using numerical simulation. The results for both linear and square-law characteristics are considered, and formulas and graphs for estimating the magnitudes of the effects are given.

  • A Highly Sensitive Rapid Diagnostic Test for Chagas Disease That Utilizes a Recombinant Trypanosoma cruzi Antigen

    Improved diagnostic tests for Chagas disease are urgently needed. A new lateral flow rapid test for Chagas disease is under development at PATH, in collaboration with Laboratorio Lemos of Argentina, which utilizes a recombinant antigen for detection of antibodies to Trypanosoma cruzi. To evaluate the performance of this test, 375 earlier characterized serum specimens from a region where Chagas is endemic were tested using a reference test (the Ortho T. cruzi ELISA, Johnson &amp; Johnson), a commercially available rapid test (Chagas STAT-PAK, Chembio), and the PATH-Lemos rapid test. Compared to the composite reference tests, the PATH-Lemos rapid test demonstrated an optimal sensitivity of 99.5% and specificity of 96.8%, while the Chagas STAT-PAK demonstrated a sensitivity of 95.3% and specificity of 99.5%. These results indicate that the PATH-Lemos rapid test shows promise as an improved and reliable tool for screening and diagnosis of Chagas disease.
