A study on the discretization of fractional Brownian motion
Coşkun, Buket; Vardar Acar, Ceren; Demirtaş, Hakan (2020-12-01)
In this study, we first discretize the fractional Brownian motion in time and observe multivariate Gaussian random variables (mGrv) to have a fractional Gaussian noise (fGn). Afterwards, we have discretized this discrete t...
Application of r-vine copula method in Istanbul stock market data: A case study for the construction sector

Mutual information model selection algorithm for time series
Akca, Elif; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan (Informa UK Limited, 2020-09-01)
Time series model selection has been widely studied in recent years. It is of importance to select the best model among candidate models proposed for a series in terms of explaining the procedure that governs the series an...
Parallel computing in linear mixed models
Gökalp Yavuz, Fulya; Schloerke, Barret (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-09-01)
In this study, we propose a parallel programming method for linear mixed models (LMM) generated from big data. A commonly used algorithm, expectation maximization (EM), is preferred for its use of maximum likelihood estima...
Is umbilicocerebral ratio better than cerebroplacental ratio for predicting adverse pregnancy and neonatal outcomes?
Kalafat, Erkan; Kalaylioglu, Zeynep; Thilaganathan, Basky; Khalil, Asma (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Objective A secondary analysis of the trial of randomized umbilical and fetal flow in Europe suggested that the umbilicocerebral ratio (UCR) provides better differentiation of neurodevelopmental outcome in the abnormal ra...
The role of aspirin in prevention of preeclampsia in twin pregnancies: does the dose matter?
Kalafat, Erkan; Shirazi, Amani; Thilaganathan, Basky; Khalil, Asma (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Objective The use of aspirin in twin pregnancies for the prevention of preeclampsia is a controversial topic, and evidence on the required dose of aspirin is scarce. We aimed to assess the efficacy of 75 mg/day vs 150 mg/...
Performance of Antenatal Diagnostic Criteria of Twin-Anemia-Polycythemia Sequence
Liu, Becky; Kalafat, Erkan; Bhide, Amar; Thilaganathan, Basky; Khalil, Asma (2020-09-01)
This study aims to elicit the validation performance of different diagnostic criteria and to evaluate the disease course and perinatal outcomes of pregnancies complicated by twin anemia polycythemia sequence (TAPS). Monoch...
The Association Between Hypertension in Pregnancy and Preterm Birth with Fetal Growth Restriction in Singleton and Twin Pregnancy: Use of Twin Versus Singleton Charts
Kalafat, Erkan; Abiola, Aisha; Thilaganathan, Basky; Bhide, Amar; Khalil, Asma (MDPI AG, 2020-8-5)
Objective: To compare the rates of fetal growth restriction (FGR) in singleton and twin pregnancies using singleton and twin-specific birthweight standards. Methods: The study included liveborn twin and singleton pregnanci...
Re: Ratio of umbilical and cerebral artery pulsatility indices in assessment of fetal risk: numerator and denominator matter
Kalafat, E.; Ozturk, E.; Kalaylioglu, Z.; Akkaya, Ayşen; Khalil, A. (Wiley, 2020-08-01)
Variable selection in elliptical linear mixed model
Gökalp Yavuz, Fulya; Arslan, Olcay (Informa UK Limited, 2020-08-01)
Variable selection in elliptical Linear Mixed Models (LMMs) with a shrinkage penalty function (SPF) is the main scope of this study. SPFs are applied for parameter estimation and variable selection simultaneously. The smoo...
Umbilicocerebral ratio: potential implications of inversing the cerebroplacental ratio
Kalafat, E.; Khalil, A. (Wiley, 2020-08-01)
Prognostic Value of Maternal Cardiovascular Hemodynamics in Women With Gestational Hypertension and Chronic Hypertension in Pregnancy
Kalafat, Erkan; Perry, Helen; Bowe, Sophie; Thilaganathan, Basky; Khalil, Asma (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2020-08-01)
This study aimed to assess the prognostic value of cardiovascular assessment in women with gestational hypertension or chronic hypertension for the risk of preeclampsia and need for closer antenatal surveillance. This was ...
Risk of operative delivery for intrapartum fetal compromise in small-for-gestational-age fetuses at term: external validation of the IRIS algorithm
Kalafat, Erkan; Morales-Rosello, Jose; Scarinci, Elisa; Thilaganathan, Basky; Khalil, Asma (Informa UK Limited, 2020-08-01)
Objectives:Small-for-gestational-age fetuses (SGA) are at high risk of intrapartum fetal compromise requiring operative delivery. In a recent study, we developed a model using a combination of three antenatal (gestational ...
