Conjunction saves multiple sluicing: How *(and) why?

Our goal in this paper is to analyze coordinated wh-sluicing in English and compare its properties to the properties of multiple sluicing, coordinated wh-questions and coordinated clefts. We show that none of these constructions has the properties of coordinated sluices, and conclude that coordinated sluices are not derivationally related to them. We propose, instead, that coordinated sluices underlyingly involve coordination of two interrogative CPs with a single fronted wh-phrase and an elided TP in each CP. In addition, we propose that the elided TP of the second conjunct in a coordinated sluice contains a pronominal element (an E-type pronoun) coindexed with the trace of the fronted wh-phrase in the first conjunct. We show that this analysis derives the properties of coordinated sluices and explains why they differ from multiple sluices, coordinated wh-questions and coordinated clefts.

Electromagnetic target recognition with the fused MUSIC spectrum matrix method: Applications and performance analysis for incomplete frequency data
Secmen, Mustafa; Ekmekci, Evren; Sayan, Gönül (2007-01-01)
The aim of this paper is to apply an electromagnetic target recognition method, which is based on the use of fused MUSIC spectrum matrices, to the case of incomplete frequency domain data. The aforementioned method was suggested recently and succesfully applied to both canonical and complicated targets in the presence of complete frequency domain data [1]. However, most of the real world applications involve the use of severely incomplete frequency data, especially missing low frequency information. In this...

In this paper we investigate multinormed W*-algebras in terms of the central topologies of W*-algebras. The main result asserts that each multinormed W*-algebra can be realized as a local von Neumann algebra on a certain domain in a Hilbert space. Moreover, it admits the predual (unique up to an isometry), which is the l(1)-normed space. In the normed case the assertion is reduced to the known Sakai theorem.
Uncertainty quantification of parameters in local volatility model via frequentist, bayesian and stochastic galerkin methods
Animoku, Abdulwahab; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Financial Mathematics (2018)
In this thesis, we investigate and implement advanced methods to quantify uncertain parameter(s) in Dupire local volatility equation. The advanced methods investigated are Bayesian and stochastic Galerkin methods. These advanced techniques implore different ideas in estimating the unknown parameters in PDEs. The Bayesian approach assumes the parameter is a random variable to be sampled from its posterior distribution. The posterior distribution of the parameter is constructed via “Bayes theorem of inverse p...
Metamodeling complex systems using linear and nonlinear regression methods
Kartal, Elçin; Batmaz, İnci; Department of Statistics (2007)
Metamodeling is a very popular approach for the approximation of complex systems. Metamodeling techniques can be categorized according to the type of regression method employed as linear and nonlinear models. The Response Surface Methodology (RSM) is an example of linear regression. In classical RSM metamodels, parameters are estimated using the Least Squares (LS) Method. Robust regression techniques, such as Least Absolute Deviation (LAD) and M-regression, are also considered in this study due to the outli...
Joint Utilization of Appearance and Geometry for Determining Correspondences
Soysal, Medeni; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Karadeniz, Talha (2009-09-16)
A novel approach, which is based on combining the competence of interest point detectors to capture primitives and the capability of geometric constraints to discriminate between spatial configurations of these primitives is presented. In the proposed approach, the geometric constraints are enforced by means of barycentric coordinates, a mathematical tool that has been utilized in the relevant literature as a neighborhood constraint. In the context of our research, however, these coordinates are utilized as...
