Background
Appearance of improper immune responses against the fetus and/or inadequate immunoregulatory mechanisms during pregnancy may lead to recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA). TH17 cells play a significant role in inducing inflammation, autoimmune disease, and acute transplant rejection, while regulatory T (Treg) cells moderate the function o...

Area-of-Interest (AOI) recommendation is a type of context-aware recommendation that works based on location-based data. A context-aware recommender system should be able to provide the recommendations to the users based on their request time. Often, existing context-aware systems assume that the context information is constant over time and ignore...

The interval null hypothesis is considered against the two-sided hypothesis. It was shown that p-value in interval null hypothesis can be numerically approximated by p-value of point null when interval converges to a single point of hypothesis. However, it is not true for Bayes factor or posterior probability. When the null hypothesis is substitute...

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) have been confidently identified thus far and are prescribed to different physical scenarios, black hole mergers, and collapse of massive stars. The distribution of GRBs duration, which is one of the main characteristics of GRBs, is bimodal. Hence, many authors have used mixtures of distribution models to fit them, which suf...

Personalized travel package recommendation for tourists is an important task in the e-Tourism field. With the excessive growth of data over the internet, it has become difficult to find relevant information among all of the Points-of-Interest (PoIs) for tourists. Recommendation Systems (RSs) are the essential tools to tackle the information overloa...

In this article, we first introduce a procedure for the construction of a general family of symmetric distributions. Then, using Azzalini’s approach, we build a rich family of asymmetric distributions. Next, we focus our attention on a specific case of this general class of asymmetric distributions, which subsumes and extends several well-known uni...

By the advent of some applications in the web 2.0 such as social networks which allow the users to share media, many opportunities have been provided for the tourists to recognize and visit attractive and unfamiliar Areas-of-Interest (AOIs). However, finding the appropriate areas based on user’s preferences is very difficult due to some issues such...

Analysis of time series data can involve the inversion of large covariance matrices. For the class of ARMA(p,q) processes there are no exact explicit expressions for these inverses, except for the MA(1) process. In practice, the simple covariance matrix can be very large and inversion can be computationally time consuming and so approximate explici...

In many situations the observations are recorded according with a function, weight function, the classical analysis may not be valid. In this case the statistical methods of analysing data have to be adjusted. In this paper adjusted method has been considered under some weight function in circular distributions.
