Environmental problems, uncertainty, and mathematical modeling
(American Mathematical Society, 2010)
In this paper we discuss three rather special characteristics shared by many environmental problems. Namely, that (i) the environmental variables in which we are most interested constitute a stochastic process; (ii) the ...
Analysing homogenous patient journeys to assess quality of care for patients admitted outside of their ‘home-ward’
(Australian Computer Society, 2013)
This study is the first to explore the quality of care based on the outlier or the inlier status of patients for a large heterogeneous General Medicine (GM) service at a busy public hospital. The study compared the quality ...
Gaining insight from patient journey data using process-oriented analysis approach
(Australian Computer Society, 2012)
Hospitals are continually struggling to cater for the increasing demand for inpatient services. This is due to increased population, aging, and the rising incidence of chronic diseases associated with modern life. The high ...
A note on price volatility in the Australian electricity market
(Cambridge University Press, 2010)
Efficiency in electricity transmission has been a worldwide 'hot topic' for more than ten years and has led to reforms in many countries. However, the performance of the restructured electricity markets is often questioned ...
A conjecture on the prevalence of cubic bridge graphs
(Technical University Press, University of Zielona Gora, 2010)
Almost all d-regular graphs are Hamiltonian, for d ≥ 3. In this note we conjecture that in a similar, yet somewhat different, sense almost all cubic non-Hamiltonian graphs are bridge graphs, and present supporting empirical ...
The relationship between in-hospital location and outcomes of care in patients of a large general medical service
Background: The discrepancy between the number of admissions and the allocation of hospital beds means many patients admitted under the care of a general medical service can be placed in other departments’ wards. These ...
