No. of outbreaks 16 Average no. of patients in cluster or outbreak of infection (range) 9.7 (3–43) Total no. of cases of C. difficile infection 155 % of female patients 49.1 Mean age (range), years 73.6 (40–98) No. and type of institution Community hospitals 11 Academic teaching hospitals 4 Longterm care facility 1 ly Lyme disease. Objective clinical failure, subjective complaints, and the objective functional status of patients (measured by the SF36 healthassessment survey) were similar among patients regardless of the duration of antibiotic treatment. The conclusion is clear. When it comes to antibiotic treatment duration for early Lyme disease, longer is not better [1, 5, 6]. As physicians, we should recall one of our first oaths before prescribing prolonged or repeated courses of antibiotics for early Lyme disease: primum non nocere.

BIFURCATION AT DOUBLE CHARACTERISTIC VALUES
"... The double characteristic value bifurcation problem is considered where the leading nonlinear term is a homogeneous operator. The problem is reduced to that of examining a functional of the homogeneous operator. Bifurcation is shown to occur when the functional changes sign. If the functional is no ..."

Where the REALLY Hard Problems Are

, 1991
"... It is well known that for many NPcomplete problems, such as KSat, etc., typical cases are easy to solve; so that computationally hard cases must be rare (assuming P != NP). This paper shows that NPcomplete problems can be summarized by at least one "order parameter", and that the hard p ..."

problems occur at a critical value of such a parameter. This critical value separates two regions of characteristically different properties. For example, for Kcolorability, the critical value separates overconstrained from underconstrained random graphs, and it marks the value at which the probability
Advances in Prospect Theory: Cumulative Representation of Uncertainty
 JOURNAL OF RISK AND UNCERTAINTY, 5:297323 (1992)
, 1992
"... We develop a new version of prospect theory that employs cumulative rather than separable decision weights and extends the theory in several respects. This version, called cumulative prospect theory, applies to uncertain as well as to risky prospects with any number of outcomes, and it allows differ ..."

different weighting functions for gains and for losses. Two principles, diminishing sensitivity and loss aversion, are invoked to explain the characteristic curvature of the value function and the weighting functions. A review of the experimental evidence and the results of a new experiment confirm a
ModelBased Analysis of Oligonucleotide Arrays: Model Validation, Design Issues and Standard Error Application
, 2001
"... Background: A modelbased analysis of oligonucleotide expression arrays we developed previously uses a probesensitivity index to capture the response characteristic of a specific probe pair and calculates modelbased expression indexes (MBEI). MBEI has standard error attached to it as a measure of ..."

"... A model is proposed that specifies the conditions under which individuals will become internally motivated to perform effectively on their jobs. The model focuses on the interaction among three classes of variables: (a) the psychological states of employees that must be present for internally motiv ..."

Determination of Unbiased Estimates of Characteristic Values
"... The paper deals with the characteristic value determination from relatively small samples. The characteristic value is usually determined with the assumption that the distribution and its parameters are known. The disadvantages of the method are described and the improved method is presented. Two im ..."

Efficient Implementation of Weighted ENO Schemes
, 1995
"... In this paper, we further analyze, test, modify and improve the high order WENO (weighted essentially nonoscillatory) finite difference schemes of Liu, Osher and Chan [9]. It was shown by Liu et al. that WENO schemes constructed from the r th order (in L¹ norm) ENO schemes are (r +1) th order accur ..."

The resulting WENO schemes are about twice as fast as the WENO schemes using the characteristic decompositions to compute weights, and work well for problems which donot contain strong shocks or strong reflected
