Origin and radiative forcing of black carbon transported to the Himalayas and Tibetan Plateau
(Copernicus Publications, 2011)
The remote and high elevation regions of central Asia are influenced by black carbon (BC) emissions from a variety of locations. BC deposition contributes to melting of glaciers and questions exist, of both scientific and ...
Extended Viterbi Algorithm for Hidden Markov Process: A Transient/Steady Probabilities Approach
(Hikari Ltd., 2012)
In this paper an extended Viterbi algorithm is presented for first-order hidden Markov processes, with the help of a dummy combined state sequence. For this, the Markov switching’s transient probabilities and steady ...

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a considerable source of morbidity among athletes. Most ACL injuries (70%) are non-contact in nature, with women and patients aged between 15 and 30 years at particularly high ...
Environmental Information Improves Robotic Search Performance
(Virginia Tech, 2016)
We address the problem where a mobile search agent seeks to find an unknown number of stationary objects distributed in a bounded search domain, and the search mission is subject to time/distance constraint. Our work ...
A Hybrid Model for Role-related User Classification on Twitter
(Virginia Tech, 2018-11-15)
To aid a variety of research studies, we propose TWIROLE, a hybrid model for role-related user classification on Twitter, which detects male-related, female-related, and brand-related (i.e., organization or institution) ...
Predicting Complications in Critical Care Using Heterogeneous Clinical Data
Patients in hospitals, particularly in critical care, are susceptible to many complications affecting morbidity and mortality. Digitized clinical data in electronic medical records can be effectively used to develop machine ...
