A Strong Invariance Theorem of the Tail Empirical Copula ProcessesOct 15 2011We study the behavior of bivariate empirical copula process $\mathbb{G}_n(\cdot,\cdot)$ on pavements $[0,k_n/n]^2$ of $[0,1]^2,$ where $k_n$ is a sequence of positive constants fulfilling some conditions. We provide a upper bound for the strong approximation ... More

Deep UV Luminosity Functions at the Infall Region of the Coma ClusterOct 19 2011We have used deep GALEX observations at the infall region of the Coma cluster to measure the faintest UV luminosity functions (LFs) presented for a rich galaxy cluster thus far. The Coma UV LFs are measured to M_UV = -10.5 in the GALEX FUV and NUV bands, ... More

The UV-Optical Color Magnitude Diagram II: Physical Properties and Morphological Evolution On and Off of a Star-Forming SequenceNov 30 2007We use the UV-optical color magnitude diagram in combination with spectroscopic and photometric measurements derived from the SDSS spectroscopic sample to measure the distribution of galaxies in the local universe (z<0.25) and their physical properties ...

A review of Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy (PDH) and Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH)Jul 23 2014With the advancement in telecommunications, packet traffic is rapidly becoming the mainstream of data traffic. The use and deployment of Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) networks for interconnection has gained traction worldwide due to its flexibility ... More

Improving Term Extraction Using Particle Swarm Optimization TechniquesFeb 22 2010Term extraction is one of the layers in the ontology development process which has the task to extract all the terms contained in the input document automatically. The purpose of this process is to generate list of terms that are relevant to the domain ... More

General bootstrap for dual phi-divergence estimatesJun 11 2011Oct 15 2011A general notion of bootstrapped $\phi$-divergence estimates constructed by exchangeably weighting sample is introduced. Asymptotic properties of these generalized bootstrapped $\phi$-divergence estimates are obtained, by mean of the empirical process ... More
