Partial regularity for harmonic maps and related problems

The publication provides a suite of effects concerning the partial regularity of strategies to numerous variational difficulties, all of that are attached to the Dirichlet power of maps among Riemannian manifolds, and therefore relating to the harmonic map challenge. the themes lined contain harmonic maps and generalized harmonic maps; yes perturbed types of the harmonic map equation; the harmonic map warmth stream; and the Landau-Lifshitz (or Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert) equation.

A confidence interval for a implies a corresponding confidence interval for Δ = P{Y\ > Y2) — P(Y2>Yi), since Δ = 2a - 1. For independent multinomial samples of sizes n\ and ni from the two rows, Halperin et al. 14) where X i= l V j=i+1 j 1 - j=2 x Z - Pc\\Pc\2 J ^2 PIIPW i= l The Wald approach works better by applying it to estimate logit a rather than a.

A confidence interval for a log ordinal odds ratio is sample log odds ratio ± z„/2(SE). 13) Exponentiating (taking antilogs of) its endpoints provides a confidence interval for the odds ratio itself. When a sample odds ratio Θ equals 0 or oo, the confidence 28 ORDINAL PROBABILITIES, SCORES, AND ODDS RATIOS interval does not exist. When Θ = 0, a sensible lower limit is 0. When Θ = oo, a sensible upper limit is oo. The other bound can use the ordinary formula following some adjustment, such as replacing each ηλ term that equals 0 in the SE formula by 5.

8, a very strong positive association. 5 CATEGORY CHOICE FOR ORDINAL VARIABLES Most analyses presented in this book treat the ordinal scale as fixed, typically predetermined by the researcher who conducted the study. The results of some analyses may depend greatly, however, on the way the categories were denned. 38 ORDINAL PROBABILITIES, SCORES, AND ODDS RATIOS In this section we illustrate this point, first for detecting the association between ordinal variables and then for describing a conditional association when a control variable is ordinal.
