The critical point of a sigmoidal curve
(Babeș-Bolyai University, 2020)
Let y(t) be a monotone increasing curve with lim(t ->+/-infinity) y((n))(t) = 0 for all n and let t(n) be the location of the global extremum of the nth derivative y((n))(t). Under certain assumptions on the Fourier and ...
What Can We Estimate From Fatality and Infectious Case Data Using the Susceptible-Infected-Removed (SIR) Model? A Case Study of Covid-19 Pandemic
(Frontıers Medıa Sa, 2020)
The rapidly spreading Covid-19 that affected almost all countries, was first reported at the end of 2019. As a consequence of its highly infectious nature, countries all over the world have imposed extremely strict measures ...
The Fourier Transform of the First Derivative of the Generalized Logistic Growth Curve
(International journal of advances in engineering and pure sciences (Online), 2020)
The “generalized logistic growth curve” or the “5-point sigmoid” is a typical example for sigmoidal curves without symmetry and it is commonly used for non-linear regression. The “critical point” of a sigmoidal curve is ...
Forecasting Models For Daily Natural Gas Consumption Considering Periodic Variations And Demand Segregation
(Elsevier Ltd, 2020)
Due to expensive infrastructure and the difficulties in storage, supply conditions of natural gas are different from those of other traditional energy sources like petroleum or coal. To overcome these challenges, supplier ...
Managing natural gas demand for free consumers under uncertainty and limited storage capacity
Demand for energy sources depends on several factors such as population growth, urbanization, industrialization, and climate. Among fundamental energy sources, natural gas is characterized by storage limitations and ...
On the Time Shift Phenomena in Epidemic Models
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2020)
In the standard Susceptible-Infected-Removed (SIR) and Susceptible-Exposed-Infected-Removed (SEIR) models, the peak of infected individuals coincides with the inflection point of removed individuals. Nevertheless, a survey ...
