Comparative analysis of dengue versus chikungunya outbreaks in Costa Rica
For decades, dengue virus has been a cause of major public health concern in Costa Rica, due to its landscape and climatic conditions that favor the circumstances in which the vector, Aedes aegypti, thrives. The emergence ...
Vertical Transmission in a Two-Strain Model of Dengue Fever
The role of vertical transmission in vectors has rarely been addressed in the study of dengue dynamics and control, in part because it was not considered a critical population-level factor. In this paper, we apply the ...
Drinking as an epidemic - a simple mathematical model with recovery and relapse
This chapter discusses a simple mathematical model of drinking lapse. Problem drinking is modeled as an acquired state - the result of frequent or intense interactions among individuals in three drinking states within a ...
Geometrical correlation indices using homological constructions on manifolds
Abstract The course of dimensionality is a common problem in statistics and data analysis. Variable sensitivity analysis methods are a well studied and established set of tools designed to overcome these sorts of problems. ...
Estimation of the yield curve for Costa Rica using metaheuristic optimization
The term structure of interest rates or yield curve is a function relating the interest rate with its own term. Nonlinear regression models of Nelson-Siegel and Svensson were used to estimate the yield curve using a sample ...
Analyzing the Measurement Equivalence of a Translated Test in a Statewide Assessment Program
Análisis de la equivalencia de la medida de la traducción de un test en un programa de evaluación estatal
When tests are translated into one or more languages, the question of the equivalence of items across language forms arises. This equivalence can be assessed at the scale level by means of a multiple group confirmatory ...
Stora's fine notion of divergent amplitudes
Stora and coworkers refined the notion of divergent quantum amplitude, somewhat upsetting the standard power-counting recipe. This unexpectedly clears the way to new prototypes for free and interacting field theories of ...
