The developing map dev is a local diffeomorphism (although generally not a covering space onto its image), which defines the affine structure.

Just as dev globalizes the coordinate charts, ρ globalizes the coordinate changes.

T N |dev + |F P |dev For the Bayesian Prevalence Model, we observe that the posterior distribution of a variable with an uninformative (uniform) Beta prior, after observing a successes and b failures, is just Beta(a + 1, b + 1), i.e., a and b are pseudo counts.
Estimating the Prevalence of Deception in Online Review Communities
Under H0 , dev is distributed as a Chi-square with a number of degrees of freedom equal to [k/2], that is the number of constrained weights.
Mixtures of equispaced normal distributions and their use for testing symmetry in univariate data
Thus, a low value of dev means a small relative difference to reality.
The dynamics of iterated transportation simulations
The table first gives the class, then the number of count sites available for this class, then the values of dev for the different models.

Thus, it is of utmost importance to know the calibration and geometry of the measuremen t dev ice as accura te ly as poss ib le . The achievable shielding factor against external interference is roughly the inverse of the relative calibration accuracy.
The Signal Space Separation method
This bet has significant impact on further technological dev elopments. A simple transposition of the conclusions reached for CMB anisotropies does not hold a priori, as the polarized and total emission of the atmosphere and the foregrounds do not necessarily peak at the same scales and frequencies.
Polarization experiments
Here, we used in the last step that R σ(V t)dt = 1 and hence γ can be calculated with σ ◦ V as well as with σ . A short and direct calculation shows furthermore that ( eV bϕ)(x) = deV ϕ(x).

Putting this together we obtain for all ϕ ∈ S cγΛ ( eV ϕ) = γ (deV ϕ) = γ ( eV bϕ) = γ ( bϕ) = cγΛ (ϕ).
