A new rule for almost-certain termination of probabilistic and demonic programsDec 04 2016Extending our own and others' earlier approaches to proving termination of probabilistic programs, we propose and prove a new rule for "termination with probability one", also known as "almost-certain termination". The rule uses both super martingales ... More

Results on the quantitative mu-calculus qMuSep 15 2003The mu-calculus is a powerful tool for specifying and verifying transition systems, including those with both demonic and angelic choice; its quantitative generalisation qMu extends that to probabilistic choice.

Analysis-suitable $G^1$ multi-patch parametrizations for $C^1$ isogeometric spacesSep 25 2015May 09 2016One key feature of isogeometric analysis is that it allows smooth shape functions. Indeed, when isogeometric spaces are constructed from $p$-degree splines (and extensions, such as NURBS), they enjoy up to $C^{p-1}$ continuity within each patch. However, ... More

Integrating Phase 2 into Phase 3 based on an Intermediate Endpoint While Accounting for a Cure ProportionJan 04 2019For a trial with primary endpoint overall survival for a molecule with curative potential, statistical methods that rely on the proportional hazards assumption may underestimate the power and the time to final analysis. We show how a cure proportion model ... More
