More recently, during excavation of the entrance system of the fortification, a pot hole and a waste accumulation zone have been analysed. These structures contained abundant archaeological material (ceramic sherd, lithic and bone artefact and fauna). Three radiometric dates have been obtained. The ceramic assemblage is typical of the Belgian Michelsberg and a decorated vase shows Bischheim affinities.

[more ▼]Time-varying elastance of the ventricles is an important metric both clinically and as an input for a previously developed cardiovascular model. However, currently time-varying elastance is not normally available in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) setting, as it is an invasive and ethically challenging metric to measure. A previous paper developed a method to map less invasive metrics to the driver function, enabling an estimate to be achieved without invasive measurements. This method requires reliable and accurate processing of the aortic and pulmonary artery pressure waveforms to locate the specific points that are required to estimate the driver function. This paper details the method by which these waveforms are processed, using a data set of five pigs induced with pulmonary embolism, and five pigs induced with septic shock (with haemofiltration), adding up to 88 waveforms (for each of aortic and pulmonary artery pressure), and 616 points in total to locate. 98.2% of all points were located to within 1% of their true value, 0.81% were between 1% and 5%, 0.65% were between 5% and 10%, the remaining 0.32% were below 20%.© 2011 IFAC.

[more ▼]Current status of thinking on genomic selection in dairy cattle is mostly major breed centric (e.g., Holstein) and only for traditional traits (e.g., milk yields). Once you depart from this, it becomes obvious that different, often related, issues appear (e.g., lack of large training populations, need for expensive recording of new phenotypes). Also, there is an urgent need to rethink issues that are important for sustainability of dairy production (e.g., added value foods, animal robustness). In this context, small populations (breeds/lines) could represent a potential source of extra information to justify their maintenance. As marker densities increase, efficient dissection of different selection histories of divergent breeds or lines, potentially identifying pockets of unexploited variability will increase. A current example from the Belgian (Walloon) perspective is the Dual Purpose (DP) line of the Belgian Blue Breed (BBB), with presently around 4500 breeding females, for historical reason of which only 1500 have good pedigrees, and which is present in Belgium and northern France. Recent research, done on this line, showed its tendency to produce less saturated milk fat and to have better fertility. Results indicated that it could stay competitive in specific markets, especially because of largely increased meat value. Currently, the myostatin mutation is largely used for breeding purposes. To assess the genetic diversity of the breed, recently, over 200 genotypes (SNP50K) for nearly all breeding bulls of the last 20 years became available. HD genotypes should be available in the near future, also allowing to access selection history of this breed as being in between the 2 extreme breeds: Beef BBB (with which it shares a recent history) and Holstein-Friesian (which is related through its geographic proximity over centuries). Finally, genomic selection for DP-BBB will need to consider a single step type approach without the need of reference population and potentially relying heavily on SNP3K of cows, also with the objective to recreate relationships between animals of interest.

[more ▼]La diffraction constitue de nos jours un phénomène physique incontournable pour la recherche (diffraction par rayons X, diffraction de neutrons, cristallographie, ...) et est, à juste titre, enseignée aussi bien en dernière année de secondaire qu'à l'université. Le logiciel présenté ci-dessous est un programme permettant de réaliser des figures de diffractions de manière simple et intuitive. Il existe naturellement déjà de nombreux programmes de simulations de figures de diffractions que l'on peut facilement trouver sur internet. Cependant ceux-ci sont, pour la plupart, ou bien limités (à la connaissance de l'auteur) à quelques cas particuliers - diffractions sur une ou plusieurs fentes, un rond, plus rarement un carré - ou bien complexes à l'utilisation. Bien que ces programmes soient dignes d'intérêts et peuvent se montrer utiles dans le cadre d'un enseignement, leurs limitations empêchent d'acquérir une intuition réelle de ce qu'est la diffraction. Par exemple, quelle est la figure de diffraction obtenue par un réseau cristallin cubique, un réseau hexagonal, ou encore une hélice ? C'est précisément cette faille pédagogique que vient combler le logiciel présenté ci-dessous. En effet, celui-ci permet d'obtenir la figure de diffraction de « n'importe quelle forme » (en deux dimensions), « forme » entièrement paramétrable par l'utilisateur au moyen d'un simple fichier bitmap ; format de fichier graphique le plus répandu et le plus simple à employer. Il est naturellement également possible d'effectuer de la diffraction de manière expérimentale au moyen d'un simple laser hélium-néon (facilement accessible dans le commerce et d'un prix modéré) et de diapositives. Cependant, outre que le logiciel présenté ci-dessous peut-être obtenu gratuitement par simple demande à l'auteur, celui-ci se montre beaucoup plus souple d'utilisation que de simples diapositives car entièrement paramétrable, et, comme tout logiciel, échappe aux aléas expérimentaux (poussières sur les diapositives, problèmes d'alignements diapositives-laser, nécessité d'un local sombre, ...)

[more ▼]Artificial pastures are used to increase carrying capacity in the wet tropics by supplying higher quality forage (energy and protein) to the animals all year long. Sowing pastures is labour-intensive so to be profitable all other possible growth limiting factors, especially minerals, should be alleviated. We studied nutrients intake (energy, protein and minerals) in cattle grazing Urochloa sp. pastures in Western DRC. Three Urochloa ruziziensis and 3 U. decumbens pastures in Kolo-Fuma (Bas-Congo, DRC) were studied. Three Ndama steers and 3 cows grazing each pasture consecutively during the short rainy and dry seasons were followed by handplucking and samples were analysed for energy, crude protein and ash to calculate energy value (fodder units, FU) and digestible crude protein content (DCP) of the diets. NIRS was used on faeces to determine dry matter (DM) intake and ICP-AES to determine mineral content of the diets. Intake levels reached 66 ± 4.3 g kg-1LW0.75, nutritive value of forage was 0.701 ± 0.036 FU and 4.78 ± 1.04 % DCP, allowing daily weight gains > 550 g for steers and > 350 g for cows. P, Ca, Mg, K, Mn & Fe were provided above requirements by the pasture. Na, Cu and Zn were deficient, especially during the short dry season for Cu and Zn. U. ruziziensis pastures tended to provide more minerals, especially during the rainy season. A mineral supplement providing Na, Cu and Zn is required to reach the daily weight gains allowed by energy and protein supplies. The supplement could reasonably be similar for U. decumbens and U. ruziziensis pastures, but the dry season formula should provide more Cu and Zn than the rainy season formula [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 48 (13 ULg) Mississippian Lithostrotionidae from Zonguldak and Bartin (NW Turkey)Denayer, Julien in Kölner Forum für Geologie und Paläontologie (2011), 19Detailed reference viewed: 21 (2 ULg) Preliminary data on Early and Middle Famennian (Late Devonian) rugose and tabulate corals from southern BelgiumMottequin, Bernard ; Marion, Jean-Marc ; Poty, Edouard in Kölner Forum für Geologie und Paläontologie (2011), 19Detailed reference viewed: 21 (8 ULg) Origin and evolution of Dorlodotia (Rugosa)Denayer, Julien ; Poty, Edouardin Kölner Forum für Geologie und Paläontologie (2011), 19Detailed reference viewed: 21 (4 ULg) The Tournaisian Rugose corals of Tournai: revision of a classical faunaChantry, Geoffrey; Denayer, Julien ; Poty, Edouard in Kölner Forum für Geologie und Paläontologie (2011), 19Detailed reference viewed: 28 (1 ULg) PCBs versus PBDEs: how similar compounds can behave differently in harbour porpoisesWeijs, Liesbeth; Yang, R.

[more ▼]Soil and water conservation is a big issue of this century. The soil is a non renewable resource. As we know, the change in climate brings more short erosive rainfall with a high capacity to take away the topsoil. Moreover, topsoil contains all the nutrients the plants needs. It is now essential that we found a new balance between productivity and durability. Impacts of new agricultural techniques on soil structure are already studied in different countries (i.e. Beckers et al., 2010; Walh et al., 2004; Malone et al., 2003). But what are the impacts on erosion? That is a question with few answers. And this is where our experiment comes, in order to link erosion and future erosion with management practices. Two ways exist to act against soil losses: enhancing soil structure or increasing vegetation cover. Our study aims at measuring soil losses and runoff under different practices and for a future scenario of climate change. This study explores new practices and measures their effects on erosion and runoff under a future rainfall. We focus on two cultures: sugar beet and maize. Each is tested under three different systems. For sugar beet soil structure impact is monitored: three tillage systems are tested: winter ploughing, fall ploughing and fall topsoiling. For maize vegetation cover impact is monitored: three seeding systems are studied: classical seeding (75 cm interrow), classical seeding with Ray-grass seeding in the interrows, and distributed seeding (obtained with a grains seeder). Rainfall simulation has been chosen for the study so the impacts of climate change can also be tested. A future rainfall was calculated based on a climate change scenario for Belgium (CCI-HYDR project, Willems, 2006-2010). A basic current rainfall of 100 years return period and 30 minutes duration (correspondent intensity: 70 mm/h) entered into the model gives the new rainfall. After the application of the scenario, the new rainfall has an intensity of 80 mm/h. This is our future rainfall used in this experiment. The simulations of this rainfall were carried on during the main crop season (between June and August). Three simulations were performed on sugar beet and two on maize on plots with the dimensions: 3 m length and 90 cm and 120 cm width respectively for sugar beet and maize (corresponding to two rows of the main culture). During each simulation soil losses and runoff quantities were measured. From the first year experiment, some tendencies can be observed. The topsoiling on sugar beet culture seems to produce less soil losses when the winter ploughing gives the lower quantities of runoff. The distributed seeding for the maize culture gives the lower rates for both soil losses and runoff quantities. Our experiment will be repeated at least for the next two years with new future rainfall to be tested. The climatic conditions are an important factor which can modify the behavior of soil response under rainfall event. More research has to be done in order to improve our knowledge of runoff and erosion phenomenon at smaller scale.

Blind source separation ... [more ▼]In the field of structural health monitoring or machine condition monitoring, the activation of nonlinear dynamic behavior complicates the procedure of damage or fault detection. Blind source separation (BSS) techniques are known as efficient methods for damage diagnosis. However, most of BSS techniques repose on the assumption of the linearity of the system and the need of many sensors. This article presents some possible extensions of those techniques that may improve the damage detection, e.g. Enhanced-Principal Component Analysis (EPCA), Kernel PCA (KPCA) and Blind Modal Identification (BMID). The advantages of EPCA rely on its rapidity of use and its reliability. The KPCA method, through the use of nonlinear kernel functions, allows to introduce nonlinear dependences between variables. BMID is adequate to identify and to detect damage for generally damped systems. In this paper, damage is firstly examined by Stochastic Subspace Identification (SSI); then the detection is achieved by comparing subspace features between the reference and a current state through statistics and the concept of subspace angle. Industrial data are used as illustration of the methods.

[more ▼]Long-lasting debates question whether faces are special stimuli treated preferentially by our visual system or whether prioritized processing of faces is simply due to increased salience of their constituting features. To examine this issue, we used a visual search task in which participants had to make a saccade to the circle with a unique color among a set of six circles. Critically, there was a task-irrelevant object located next to each circle. We examined how an upright face, an inverted face or a butterfly, presented near the target or non-target circles affected eye movements to the target. Upright (13.12%) and inverted faces (10.8%) located away from the target circle captured the eyes more than butterflies (8.5%), but upright faces captured the eyes more than inverted faces. Moreover, when faces were next to the target, upright faces, and to some extent inverted faces, facilitated the saccades towards the target. Faces are thus salient and capture attention. More importantly however above and beyond their raw salience based on low-level features, canonical upright faces capture attention stronger than inverted faces. Therefore, faces are ‘special’ and our visual system is tuned to their meaning and not only to low-level features making up a face.

[more ▼]In the field of structural health monitoring or machine condition moni-toring, most vibration based methods reported in the literature require to measure responses at several locations on the structure. In machine condition monitoring, the number of available vibration sensors is often small and it is not unusual that only one single sensor is used to monitor a machine. This paper presents industrial applications of two possible extensions of output-only Blind Source Separation (BSS) techniques, namely Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Second Order Blind Identification (SOBI). Through the use of block Hankel matrices, these methods may be used when a reduced set of sensors or even one single sensor is available. The objective is to address the problem of fault detection in mechanical systems using subspace-based methods. The detection is achieved by comparing the subspace features between the reference and a current state using the concept of angular coherence between subspaces.

[more ▼]Pesticide residue analysis requires methods that can determine hundreds of compounds at low levels in complex food matrices. This challenge has given rise to multi residue methods, the only efficient analytical approach. This type of analytical method entails a “generic” extraction followed by a soft or no purification step to avoid any analytes looses. With over a 1000 active compounds with different physical chemical properties, gas and liquid chromatography are used as complementary separative techniques. In the past decade, the determination has been performed on tandem mass analyzers, a powerful tool to overcome co-eluting compounds with excellent sensitivity. Nevertheless, these instruments can guarantee these results per acquisition cycles for more or less 150 compounds. This represents a serious limitation when the number of pesticides to be sought for monitoring and MRL enforcement is growing each year. As multiple injections from the same sample are not viable for laboratories, alternative options have to be explored. We propose the investigation of ion mobility (IM) coupled with mass spectrometry as a new approach for pesticide residue analysis in food.

[more ▼]The floods have always been the main concern resulting of extreme weather conditions. Now droughts and low flows are more and more recognized as risk situations due to the huge consequences of water shortage. Furthermore, the changing climate context constitutes a new threat even if the uncertainty in low-flows evolution remains high. In Wallonia (Southern part of Belgium), a knowledge gap remains on statistical analysis of low-flows. In this paper, we present a study of historical data in Walloon Region and the first steps of their statistical analysis. Wallonia is one of the three regions of Belgian federal state. It covers an area of 17000 km² and spreads on 4 districts (Meuse, Escaut, Rhin, Senne). The watercourses are divided in navigable watercourses (700km), not navigable watercourses that are listed in 3 categories (14300km) and streams that are not navigable and not listed (4000km). Hydrological monitoring has a short history in Wallonia. The first monitoring site was installed in 1960. It consisted in a limnimetric scale and daily manual readings. Since 1974, hourly data are recorded. The number of measurement sites reached 244 stations in 2011. About 60 % of the monitoring sites have less than 20 years of hourly data. A qualitative analysis of monitoring stations led us to disregard 184 stations. The main quality problems were important discharge rating curve extrapolation, algae development in summer or low flow inferior to 5l/s. In preparation for a statistical analysis of low-flows, the old manual daily readings were analyzed. Unusable in high flow situations, they still hold practical and usable information during drought. This analysis allowed us to extend the registration period up of 7 stations and to recover 16 stations. There were lots of missing data during the 1960-1994 period, due to a poor management of the monitoring network. A yearly hydrograph analysis leads us to keep years of partial measurement when the gaps were found to be out of the low-flow period. The monitoring sites presenting more than 20 years of readings were selected for the statistical analysis. A homogeneity test was performed. Finally 64 out of 244 monitoring sites are kept for the frequency analysis. The indicators used to characterize low-flows are the popular Q95 and MAM7. Five below bounded distributions are tested with the HYFRAN software: Weibull (2 parameters), log-normal 2 parameters and 3 parameters, Gamma and Pearson type III. The parameters of the laws are estimated by the maximum likelihood estimation. The selection of the three best laws is performed for each site thanks to three Bayesian criterions proposed by HYFRAN. Then the distribution that fits the best the data is visually chosen. The results of the adjustment method are the same for the two indicators. The Gamma distribution is the most used followed by the lognormal with 2 parameters. However in some cases a law of three parameters is more appropriate. This preliminary work gives a first analysis of low-flows statistics in Wallonia. Yet a lot of missing data or short recording duration still limits our knowledge, this analysis allows us to progress towards best management practices in rivers and watersheds.

[more ▼]The adolescent period is characterized by behavioral and neurobiological changes, which might predispose adolescents to the long-term negative consequences of alcohol. For example, enhanced risks of alcohol dependence are reported when drinking is initiated early. In the present studies, we used Swiss female mice to test whether chronic ethanol injections during adolescence durably affect the sensitivity to the stimulant effects of ethanol in adulthood. In a first set of experiments, several groups of young (28 day-old) mice were daily injected with various ethanol doses (1.5 – 4 g/kg) to test for ethanol sensitization during adolescence in comparison to adult mice exposed to the same schedule of ethanol injections. The results show that young mice express much higher stimulant effects after acute ethanol injections. However, they also require higher ethanol doses than adult mice to develop a sensitization to the stimulant effects of ethanol. In a second set of experiments, 28 day-old mice were sensitized to ethanol for 14 days with high ethanol doses (2.5 or 4 g/kg) and then tested for the stimulant effects of ethanol and the development of ethanol sensitization in adulthood. The results of this second set of experiments show that mice sensitized to ethanol during their adolescence remain more sensitive to the acute stimulant effects of ethanol in adulthood, especially when high ethanol doses were administered. However, the rate of the development of a sensitization to this effect was only slightly affected relative to adult mice exposed to a chronic ethanol regimen for the first time. Together, these results indicate that adolescent mice are more sensitive to the stimulant effects of ethanol but require higher ethanol doses to develop a sensitization. However, when a sensitization develops during adolescence, these mice still experience higher ethanol stimulant effects when tested in adulthood.

[more ▼]NMHC (non-methane hydrocarbons) are a major group of atmospheric trace gases with impact on photochemical processes in the atmosphere, especially oxidant formation with ozone being the most prominent of them, and contributions to SOA (secondary organic aerosols). By this, they are coupled to climate issues via the oxidizing capacity of the atmosphere, the greenhouse gas ozone and aerosol effects. NMHC monitoring was initiated in Europe in the “Tropospheric Ozone Research” project (1988-1995), and it was continued in EMEP and GAW (Global Atmosphere Watch) where it is an ongoing initiative which recently has been reinforced (GAW Report 171). In this presentation we will focus on time series from Central European mountain stations (46-49°N, 7-13°E): Hohenpeissenberg (985 m, DWD, Germany, 1998-ongoing), Rigi (1031 m, EMPA, Switzerland, 2003-ongoing), Junfraujoch (3580 m, EMPA, Switzerland, 2000-ongoing, and ULg (FTIR), Belgium, 1984-ongoing), Zugpitze (2650 m, UBA, Germany, 2000-ongoing), Schauinsland (1205 m, FZ-Jülich (1989-94), and UBA, Germany, 2004-ongoing), Brotjacklriegel (1016 m, UBA, Germany, 2000-2004), Donon (775 m, EMD, France, 1997-2007). Most sites used weekly flask samples but also on-line measurements were carried out with higher time resolution within the former TOR project and in the more recent time series at Hohenpeissenberg, Rigi, and Jungfraujoch. All samples were analysed by GC. Additionally to these GC measurements, a time series of column integrated acetylene and ethane by FTIR (Fourier Transform InfraRed spectrometry) is available from Jungfraujoch, from 1984 onwards. We focus here on time series of monthly averages of anthropogenic hydrocarbons over the 1997-2009 time period. They show quite similar patterns among the various stations over the whole period with pronounced seasonal cycles. Significantly lower mixing ratios were measured at the highest elevated sites, the Zugspitze and Jungfraujoch. Differences between the lower mountain sites (775-1200 m) are on first view surprisingly small. Generally, the differences between the high altitude and the other mountain sites are lowest in summer due to enhanced vertical mixing and thermal upslope winds. Downward trends for anthropogenic hydrocarbons are very similar at the various stations and are 2 %/yr for C2-C3 alkanes (+/- 1%), 3-6 %/yr for C4-C7 alkanes (+/- 2%), 2-3%/yr for C2-C3 alkynes and ethene (+/- 2%), 4 % /yr for propene and benzene (+/- 2%), and 5-10%/yr for toluene and xylenes (+/-3 and 5%, respectively).

This sound atomic scale insight should open new avenues for the understanding of phase-change materials and other complex amorphous materials from the viewpoint of rigidity.

[more ▼]Using X-ray microtomography, 3D soil structure can be visualised and analysed through useful factors like pore size distribution, shape, connectivity, orientation, etc. X-ray scans yield grey-level 2D images, which can be recombined to form 3D structures. Treatments of the grey-level images can consist of either a binarization -distinguishing soil and pores- or a permeability level attribution directly linked to the grey-level values. The latter leads to problems in order to assign a permeability for each point (in soil a same grey level value can be assigned to points with a different permeability), as well as to analyse the 3D structure. On the other hand, treatment of black and white 3D structures is well-handled. However, the impact of the choice of one thresholding technique on the resulting images has already been demonstrated. Moreover, thresholding methods are various and numerous. Many of them are based on the image histogram analysis. But because of the soil complexity, the relevance of these techniques becomes debatable, with a risk of producing non reliable images. We propose to palliate this with a simple new algorithm based on physical measurements: it uses a loop fixing the threshold value in order to match the measured porosity for each sample. In this communication, our point is to highlight the impact of different thresholding techniques on the analysis and interpretation of our soil microtomograms. The underlying questions could be: Does the thresholding method influence our conclusions? Are the results depending on the sample itself or on the methodology? In order to answer these questions we tested the Otsu technique and our physically based algorithm. Soils samples were removed from the upper layer (Ap horizon) of a silty soil (Gentinnes, Brabant Walloon, Belgium) in plots with different management practices. In fact, since 2004, the field has been cultivated in conventional tillage (CT) or reduced tillage (RT). In order to empty the meso- and macroporosity, samples were placed under a 1.5 MPa pressure (Richards apparatus). Samples were then scanned by X-ray microtomography using a Skyscan-1172 high-resolution desktop micro-CT system (Skyscan, Kontich, Belgium). The cone beam source operated at 100 kV, using an aluminium filter. The detector configuration, i.e. 1048x2000 pixels with a 16-bit X-ray camera, and the distance source-object-camera were adjusted to produce images with a pixel size of 17 µm. Porosity was measured for each scanned sample. Then the threshold methods -the Otsu technique on one hand and our developed algorithm on the other - were applied, and morphological factors were calculated for both methods. A comparison of the first results shows a threshold influence on average porosity and number of pores, but also on connectivity factors and size distribution. The apparent porosity of the images, as well as connectivity, is underestimated with the Otsu technique. Despite the fact that the changes induced by thresholding are more important for RT than CT, global conclusions about the comparison of these agricultural practices are approximately the same in this case. However, differences between tillage systems are less important with the Otsu method, confirming the impact of choosing the adapted threshold method.

As a consequence it follows that many related sequences are either k-automatic or k-regular. These include many sequences previously studied in the literature, such as the recurrence function, the appearance function, and the repetitivity index. We also give a new characterization of the class of k-regular sequences. Many results extend to other sequences defined in terms of Pisot numeration systems.

[more ▼]The forbidden lines are difficult to analyse because their detection requires high spectral and spatial resolutions. Their analysis is however interesting because it allows the determination of the spatial distribution and the production rate of the parent molecules, supposedly H2O which doesn't have any feature in the optical range. But as shown by Cochran [2] [3], some issues remain about the nature of the parents of the oxygen atoms. Moreover the width of the green line was found larger than that of the red lines. One of the goals of this study is to determine the parent species that photo-dissociate to produce oxygen atoms and see how this process depends on the heliocentric distance. We present here the results of the analysis of a homogeneous set of high quality spectra of 13 different comets observed with UVES at the ESO VLT since 2002 [4] [5].

[more ▼]Lactoferrin (LF) is a glycoprotein present in milk and active in the immune system of cows and humans. Therefore, an inexpensive and rapid analysis to quantify this protein is desirable. A previous study reported the potential to quantify LF from the mid-infrared (MIR) spectrometry from 69 milk samples. Through the European RobustMilk project (www.robustmilk.eu), 3,606 milk samples were collected in Belgium, Ireland, and Scotland from individual cows and analyzed using a MIR MilkoScanFT6000 spectrometer. Milk LF content was quantified using ELISA in duplicate. Average ELISA data with a CV lower than 5% were used. After the detection of spectral and ELISA outliers, the calibration set contained 2,499 samples. An equation to predict LF content from MIR was developed using partial least squared regression. A first derivative pre-treatment of spectra was used to correct the baseline drift. To improve the repeatability of the spectral data, a file which contained the spectra of samples analyzed on 5 spectrometers was used during the calibration. The lactoferrin mean was 159.28 mg/l of milk with a SD of 97.21 mg/l of milk. The calibration (C) coefficient of determination (R2) was equal to 0.73 with a standard error (SE) of calibration of 50.54 mg/l of milk. A cross-validation (CV) was used to assess the robustness of the equation. R2 CV was 0.72 with a SE-CV of 51.16 mg/l of milk. An external validation (V) was conducted on 150 milk samples collected in Belgium. The SE of prediction (SEP) was 59.17 mg/L of milk. The similarity between R2 C and R2CV as well as between SE-C and SE-CV and between SE-CV and SEP confirms the equations developed are robust. The correlation between predicted and measured LF values was 0.71. This lower value compared with the one obtained from the calibration set (0.85) could be explained by the low ELISA reproducibility (16.24% ± 25.51%). If the developed equation is used to clean the validation data set, a total of 16 samples can be deleted. The validation coefficient for these 134 samples increased to 0.82. From these results, the developed equation could be used for screening the dairy cow population for breeding purposes.

[more ▼]Finding an approximation of a Nash equilibria in matrix games is an important topic that reaches beyond the strict application to matrix games. A bandit algorithm commonly used to approximate a Nash equilibrium is EXP3. However, the solution to many problems is often sparse, yet EXP3 inherently fails to exploit this property. To the knowledge of the authors, there exist only an offline truncation to tackle such issue. In this paper, we propose a variation of EXP3 to exploit the fact that solution is sparse by dynamically removing arms; the resulting algorithm empirically performs better than previous versions. We apply the resulting algorithm to a MCTS program for the Urban Rivals card game.
