An adaptive approach to accelerated evaluation of highly available services
Chih-Chieh Hsu, Michael Devetsikiotis
Article No.: 1
We motivate and describe improved fast simulation techniques for the accelerated performance evaluation of highly available services. In systems that provide such services, service unavailability events are rare due to a low component failure rate...
Adaptive Newton-based multivariate smoothed functional algorithms for simulation optimization
Article No.: 2
In this article, we present three smoothed functional (SF) algorithms for simulation optimization. While one of these estimates only the gradient by using a finite difference approximation with two parallel simulations, the other two are adaptive...
Sample-based estimation of correlation ratio with polynomial approximation
Daniel Lewandowski, Roger M. Cooke, Radboud J. Duintjer Tebbens
Article No.: 3
Sensitivity analysis has become a natural step in the uncertainty analysis framework. As there is no general sensitivity measure that would capture all information on impact of input factors on model output, analysts tend to combine various...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is deadly if not found early. Any protocols developed for screening and surveillance and any policy decisions regarding the availability of CRC resources should consider the nature of the disease and its impact over time on...
