Adaptive Composite Estimation In Small Domains

small area estimation techniques are used in sample surveys, where direct estimates for small domains are not reliable due to small sample sizes in the domains. we estimate the domain means by generalized linear compositions of the weighted sample means and the synthetic estimators that are obtained from the regression-synthetic model of fixed effects, based on the domain level auxiliary information. in the proposed method, the number of parameters of optimal compositions is reduced to a single unknown parameter, which is further evaluated by minimizing an empirical risk function. we apply various composite and related estimators to estimate proportions of the unemployed in a simulation study, based on the lithuanian labor force survey data. conclusions on advantages and disadvantages of the proposed compositions are obtained from this empirical comparison Show More ... ...

Impacts Of Predator–Prey Interaction On Managing Maximum Sustainable Yield And Resilience

this paper gives a broad outline of some comparative analysis of two ecological services, namely, yield and resilience of a generalist predator–prey system. although either prey or predator species can be harvested at maximum sustainable yield (msy) level, yet there is a trade-off between yield and resilience. when both the species are harvested simultaneously, msy increase by changing catchabilities always increases the system resilience both in prey- and predator-oriented fishery. in particular, a prey-oriented fishery with low prey catchability gives more yield and resilience but in case of predator-oriented fishery with high predator catchability, gives more of these ecological services. thus to get both the optimum yield and resilience, a balanced harvesting approach is needed between the prey and predator trophic levels. throughout the analysis, we use both the analytical as well as numerical techniques Show More ... ...

Dynamics Of Prey–Predator Model With Strong And Weak Allee Effect In The Prey With Gestation Delay

this study proposes two prey–predator models with strong and weak allee effects in prey population with crowley–martin functional response. further, gestation delay of the predator population is introduced in both the models. we discussed the boundedness, local stability and hopf-bifurcation of both nondelayed and delayed systems. the stability and direction of hopfbifurcation is also analyzed by using normal form theory and center manifold theory. it is shown that species in the model with strong allee effect become extinct beyond a threshold value of allee parameter at low density of prey population, whereas species never become extinct in weak allee effect if they are initially present. it is also shown that gestation delay is unable to avoiding the status of extinction. lastly, numerical simulation is conducted to verify the theoretical findings Show More ... ...

Dynamic Output Nonfragile Reliable Control For Nonlinear Fractional-Order Glucose–Insulin System

the main intention of this paper is to scrutinize the problem of internal model-based dynamic output feedback nonfragile reliable control problem for fractional-order glucose–insulin system. specifically, a robust control law that represents the insulin injection rate is designed in order to regulate the level of glucose in diabetes treatment in the existence of meal disturbance or external glucose infusion due to improper diet. by the construction of suitable lyapunov functional, a novel set of sufficient conditions is derived with the aid of linear matrix inequalities for obtaining the required dynamic output feedback control law. in particular, the designed controller ensures the robust stability and disturbance attenuation performance against meal disturbance of the glucose–insulin system. numerical simulation results are performed to verify the advantage of the developed design technique. specifically, the irregular blood glucose level can be brought down to normal level by injecting suitable rate of insulin to the patient. the result exposes that the level of blood glucose is sustained in the identified ranges via the proposed dynamic output feedback control law Show More ... ...

Speech Emotion Classification Using Fractal Dimension-Based Features

during the last 10–20 years, a great deal of new ideas have been proposed to improve the accuracy of speech emotion recognition: e.g., effective feature sets, complex classification schemes, and multi-modal data acquisition. nevertheless, speech emotion recognition is still the task in limited success. considering the nonlinear and fluctuating nature of the emotional speech, in this paper, we present fractal dimension-based features for speech emotion classification. we employed katz, castiglioni, higuchi, and hurst exponent-based features and their statistical functionals to establish the 224-dimensional full feature set. the dimension was downsized by applying the sequential forward selection technique. the results of experimental study show a clear superiority of fractal dimension-based feature sets against the acoustic ones. the average accuracy of 96.5% was obtained using the reduced feature sets. the feature selection enabled us to obtain the 4-dimensional and 8-dimensional sets for lithuanian and german emotions, respectively Show More ... ...

Feedback Control And Its Impact On Generalist Predator–Prey System With Prey Harvesting

this article examines the effectiveness of feedback control as a management policy on a generalist predator–prey system with prey harvesting. we discuss the result of implementing feedback control with respect to prey and predator separately. this paper also depicts the effect of exploitations up to maximum sustainable yield (msy). we observe that with a constant fishing effort msy policy is a sustainable management policy to protect both the species. however, further increase of fishing effort may cause the extinction of prey species. but considering feedback control of fishing effort may restrict the extinction of prey species. when fishing effort is controlled in terms of prey density, the extinction of prey population can be avoided. in this case, there may be coexistences of prey, predator and fishery or extinction of fishery. but when fishing effort is controlled by predator density, it is difficult to manage the coexistences of prey, predator and fishery.

Qualitative Behavior Of Three Species Food Chain Around Inner Equilibrium Point: Spectral Analysis

this work deals with analytical investigation of local qualitative temporal behavior around inner equilibrium point of a model for three species food chain, studied earlier by hastings and powel and others. as an initial step towards the spectral analysis of the model, the governing equations have been split into linear and nonlinear parts around arbitrary equilibrium point. the explicit parameter dependence of eigenvalues of jacobi matrix associated to the linear part have been derived. analyzing these expressions in conjunction with some pedagogical analysis, a lot of predictions on stable, unstable or chaotic change of species have been highlighted. agreement of predictions of this work with available numerical or semi-analytical studies suggest the utility of analytical results derived here for further investigation/analysis of the model as desired by earlier works Show More ... ...

Visual Decisions In The Analysis Of Customers Online Shopping Behavior

the analysis of the online customer shopping behavior is an important task nowadays, which allows maximizing the efficiency of advertising campaigns and increasing the return of investment for advertisers. the analysis results of online customer shopping behavior are usually reviewed and understood by a non-technical person; therefore the results must be displayed in the easiest possible way. the online shopping data is multidimensional and consists of both numerical and categorical data. in this paper, an approach has been proposed for the visual analysis of the online shopping data and their relevance. it integrates several multidimensional data visualization methods of different nature. the results of the visual analysis of numerical data are combined with the categorical data values. based on the visualization results, the decisions on the advertising campaign could be taken in order to increase the return of investment and attract more customers to buy in the online e-shop Show More ... ...
