In science:

Under the assumption of positive or arbitrary dependence of the p-values, we introduce new two-stage adaptive versions of known step-up procedures (namely, of the LSU under positive dependences, and of the family of procedures introduced by Blanchard and Fleuret, 2007, under unspecified dependences).
Adaptive FDR control under independence and dependence
This result was extended by Blanchard and Fleuret (2007) and Blanchard and Roquain (2008) (see also a related result of Sarkar, 2008a): it can be shown that self-consistent procedures (not necessarily nonincreasing) based on a particular class of shape functions have controlled FDR: Theorem 2.7.
Adaptive FDR control under independence and dependence
There is much previous work that extends single classifiers to classifier cascades (mostly for binary classification) (Viola & Jones, 2004; Lefakis & Fleuret, 2010; Saberian & Vasconcelos, 2010; Pujara et al., 2011; Chen et al., 2012).
