Sparse Estimation of Multivariate Poisson Log-Normal Models from Count DataFeb 22 2016Aug 12 2016Modeling data with multivariate count responses is a challenging problem due to the discrete nature of the responses. Existing methods for univariate count responses cannot be easily extended to the multivariate case since the dependency among multiple ... More

The holographic spectral function in non-equilibrium statesFeb 07 2012Apr 18 2012We develop holographic prescriptions for obtaining spectral functions in non-equilibrium states and space-time dependent non-equilibrium shifts in the energy and spin of quasi-particle like excitations. We reproduce strongly coupled versions of aspects ... More

Inference in Probabilistic Logic Programs using Lifted ExplanationsAug 20 2016In this paper, we consider the problem of lifted inference in the context of Prism-like probabilistic logic programming languages. Traditional inference in such languages involves the construction of an explanation graph for the query and computing probabilities ... More

Intrinsic-cum-extrinsic normalization of formant data of vowelsSep 16 2016Using a known speaker-intrinsic normalization procedure, formant data are scaled by the reciprocal of the geometric mean of the first three formant frequencies. This reduces the influence of the talker but results in a distorted vowel space. The proposed ... More

Flow of Information in Feed-Forward Deep Neural NetworksMar 20 2016Feed-forward deep neural networks have been used extensively in various machine learning applications. Developing a precise understanding of the underling behavior of neural networks is crucial for their efficient deployment. In this paper, we use an ... More

Low temperature properties of a new Kondo Lattice compound Yb$_2$Ir$_3$Sn$_5$Oct 21 2005We report the preparation and results of our magnetic and transport measurements on a new Yb-based ternary compound Yb$_2$Ir$_3$Sn$_5$. This compound forms in the orthorhombic Cmc21 structure. DC magnetic susceptibility between 1.8 K and 300 K reveal ... More

Weaves: A Novel Direct Code Execution Interface for Parallel High Performance Scientific CodesMay 04 2002Scientific codes are increasingly being used in compositional settings, especially problem solving environments (PSEs). Typical compositional modeling frameworks require significant buy-in, in the form of commitment to a particular style of programming ... More
