APPLICATION OF MATRICES TO REAL LIFE PROBLEMS

Abstract The introduction and development of the notion of a matrix and the subject of linear algebra followed the development of determinants, which arose from the study of coefficients of systems of linear equations. Leibnitz, one of the founder of calculus, used determinant in 1963 and Cramer presented his determinant based formula for solving systems of linear equation (today known as Cramer’s rule) in 1750. This study focused on matrix ...

ROBUST DETECTION OF MULTIPLE OUTLIERS IN A MULTIVARIATE DATA SET

ABSTRACT Many methods have been developed for detecting multiple outliers in a single multivariate sample, but very few for the case where there may be groups in the data set. We propose a method of simultaneously determining groups (as in cluster analysis) and detecting outliers, which are points that are distant from every group. Our method is an adaptation of the BACON algorithm proposed by Billor, Hadi and Velleman for ...

THE STUDY ON NUMBER OF CHILDREN BEING IMMUNIZED AGAINST MEASLES

Abstract Live measles vaccine induced protective levels of antibody in 70% of children with protein-caloriemalnutrition (PCM) within 21 days and possibly in 90% by 42 days. The development of specific antibody was delayed and symptoms due to the vaccine more frequent (64%) in these children than in healthy children. Administration of measles vaccine may have predisposed to an associated fatal pneumonia in one malnourished child. Human measles hyperimmune globulin can ...
