    This study presents a least mean squares (LMS) algorithm for the ensemble modeling of a multivariate ARMA process. Generally, an LMS algorithm makes possible the tracking of parameters for nonstationary time series. Our estimation incorporates multiple process observations that improve the...

    Several simple queueing models, commonly used as textbook examples, have explicit steady-state solutions, which to date have escaped notice. These solutions are easily computable. In addition to their didactic interest, the results presented here are also useful in the analysis of more complex...

    In this paper, we study how to compute the signature of a k-out-of- n coherent system consisting of n modules. Formulas for computing the signature and the minimal signature of this kind of systems based on those of their modules are derived. Examples are presented to demonstrate the...

  • A Spatial Stochastic Model for Virus Dynamics. Schinazi, Rinaldo // Journal of Statistical Physics;Aug2007, Vol. 128 Issue 3, p771 

    We introduce a spatial stochastic model for virus dynamics. We show that if the death rate of infected cells increases too fast with the virus load the virus dies out. This is in sharp contrast with what happens in the (non-spatial deterministic) basic model for virus dynamics.

    This paper considers large-scale stochastic simulations with correlated inputs having normal-to-anything (NORTA) distributions with arbitrary continuous marginal distributions. Examples of correlated inputs include processing times of workpieces across several workcenters in manufacturing...

    We consider a variant of the multi-armed bandit model, which we call scratch games, where the sequences of rewards are finite and drawn in advance with unknown starting dates. This new problem is motivated by online advertising applications where the number of ad displays is fixed according to a...

    Providing accurate and automated input-modeling support is one of the challenging problems in the application of computer simulation of stochastic systems. The models incorporated in current input-modeling software packages often fall short because they assume independent and identically...

    The stochastic simulation algorithm (SSA) was introduced by Gillespie and in a different form by Kurtz. Since its original formulation there have been several attempts at improving the efficiency and hence the speed of the algorithm. We briefly discuss some of these methods before outlining our...

    This paper treats the opinion dynamics of an unequal, initial opinion distribution. We simulate the Deffuant model on a directed Barabási–Albert network with discrete opinions and several subjects. We notice a focusing of the the resulting opinion distribution during the simulation...
