This textbook provides study materials for the participants of the course named
Multivariate Analysis of Ecological Data that we teach at our university for the third
year. Material provided here should serve both for the introductory and the advanced
versions of the course. We admit that some parts of the text would profit from further
polishing, they are quite rough but we hope in further improvement of this text.
What-if models of pavement management analysis such as RTIM, HERS and HDM-4 predict the consequences of different maintenance options to be tested that are specified exogenously. Therefore, although they are often used to “optimize” maintenance options, they are not optimizing them in its true sense; they are merely used to find the best options among those tested. Since there are usually infinite numbers of options, it is impossible to exhaust all of them and only suboptimal optimizers are found.
The main task in the independent component analysis (ICA) problem, formulated in Chapter 1, is to estimate a separating matrix that will give us the independent components. It also became clear that cannot generally be solved in closed form, that is, we cannot write it as some function of the sample or training set, whose value could be directly evaluated. Instead, the solution method is based on cost functions, also called objective functions or contrast functions. Solutions to ICA are found at the minima or maxima of these functions....

At a meeting in Moscow in June 2005, Gil Strang suggested that there be a
collection of Gene Golub's work to highlight his many important contributions
to numerical analysis. The three of us were honored to undertake this pleasant
task, with publication timed for February "29", 2007, the 75th anniversary of
Gene chose 21 papers to include here, and we are grateful to the publishers
for permission to reprint these works. We asked each of the coauthors to write
about how the paper came to be written.
NF-jB essential modulator (NEMO) plays an essential role in the nuclear
factor jB (NF-jB) pathway as a modulator of the two other subunits
of the IjB kinase (IKK) complex, i.e. the protein kinases, IKKa and
IKKb. Previous reports all envision the IKK complex to be a static entity.
Using glycerol-gradient ultracentrifugation, we observed stimulus-dependent
dynamic IKK complex assembly.
The paper presents a systematic approach to find optimal maintenance strategies for pavement management systems by using the World Bank’s Highway Development and Management System (HDM-4) combined with gradient methods proposed by Tsunokawa et al (2005). The optimal maintenance strategy is defined as the set of optimal maintenance options corresponding to different traffic levels and various initial pavement conditions, which minimizes the sum of agency costs and road user costs in present value or maximizes the net benefit to society over an analysis period.
Many machine learning problems can be cast as optimization problems. This lecture introduces optimization. The objective is for you to learn: The definitions of gradient and Hessian; the gradient descent algorithm; Newton’s algorithm; stochastic gradient descent (SGD) for online learning; popular variants, such as AdaGrad and Asynchronous SGD;...
This lecture describes the construction of binary classifiers using a technique called Logistic Regression. The objective is for you to learn: How to apply logistic regression to discriminate between two classes; how to formulate the logistic regression likelihood; how to derive the gradient and Hessian of logistic regression; how to incorporate the gradient vector and Hessian matrix into Newton’s optimization algorithm so as to come up with an algorithm for logistic regression, which we call IRLS.

The ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters are a superfamily of mem-brane proteins that are best known for their ability to transport a wide
variety of exogenous and endogenous substances across membranes against
a concentration gradient via ATP hydrolysis.
This lecture introduces you sequence models. The goal is for you to learn about: Recurrent neural networks, the vanishing and exploding gradients problem, long-short term memory (LSTM) networks, applications of LSTM networks.
A Class of Normalised Algorithms for Online Training of Recurrent Neural Networks
A normalised version of the real-time recurrent learning (RTRL) algorithm is introduced. This has been achieved via local linearisation of the RTRL around the current point in the state space of the network. Such an algorithm provides an adaptive learning rate normalised by the L2 norm of the gradient vector at the output neuron. The analysis is general and also covers simpler cases of feedforward networks and linear FIR ﬁlters...

We analyzed the role of gangliosides in the association of the ErbB2 recep-tor tyrosine-kinase (RTK) with lipid rafts in mammary epithelial HC11
cells. Scanning confocal microscopy experiments revealed a strict ErbB2–
GM3 colocalization in wild-type cells. In addition, analysis of membrane
fractions obtained using a linear sucrose gradient showed that ErbB2, epi-
The exposure-response function (quantitative variation of a health outcome per unit of pollutant
load) was derived by a meta-analytical assessment of various (international) studies selected from the
peer-reviewed epidemiological literature. The effect estimate (gradient) was calculated as the variance
weighted average across the results of all studies included in the meta-analysis.
In this project, the impact of air pollution on mortality is based on the long-term effect.
We havemade a comprehensive and quantitative analysis of
the lipid composition of caveolae from primary rat fat cells
and compared the composition of plasma membrane inside
and outside caveolae. We isolated caveolae from purified
to disrupt the membrane, or extraction with nonionic
detergent, followed by density gradient ultracentrifugation.
The carbonate-isolated caveolae fraction was further
immunopurified using caveolin antibodies.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in breath may contain biomarkers of active pulmonary
tuberculosis derived from the infectious organism (metabolites of Mycobacterium tuberculosis) and from
the infected host (products of oxidative stress).
Methods: We analyzed breath VOCs in 226 symptomatic high-risk patients in USA, Philippines, and UK,
using gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy. Diagnosis of disease was based on sputum culture, smear
microscopy, chest radiography and clinical suspicion of tuberculosis (CSTB). Chromatograms were
converted to a series of 8 s overlapping time slices.
