In order to do this, there have been implemented two voting methods: Region Based (which is similar to the Region-Growing algorithm) and Weights Based (which uses a

weighted sum scheme, followed by a re-clustering algorithm).

Additionally, the researchers developed a polygenic risk score (PRS) through the

weighted sum of all known common breast cancer variants, which was also correlated with tumor characteristics and overall survival.

The results obtained from first stage are fused using (i) two parallel face recognition algorithms, namely:

weighted sum rule and majority voting, and (ii) a rank combiner module at second and third stage, respectively.

Criterion for topic selection using

weighted sum was shown in Table 3.

Severity allocation factor (SAF) denotes the ratio of the

weighted sum of emergency room visits and cumulative overdose deaths (2003 to a given year of damages) in county c in a given year to the state-level

weighted sum of ER visits and cumulative overdose deaths in the same year.

* methods based on partial evaluation of variants (

weighted sum method, basic variant),

In particular, the method is based on the minimization of a properly defined global cost function (GCF) inspired by the lexicographic order rules and named quantized lexicographic

weighted sum (QLWS).

For the

weighted sum, input I = r exp (i[theta]), where r [greater than or equal to] 0 and 0 [less than or equal to] [theta] < 2[pi]; the complex-valued multistate activation function is defined by

Karoonsoontawong and Waller [27] presented a robust dynamic NDP model with the objective of minimizing the

weighted sum of the expected total travel time and expected risk.

Using the linear weighting method [25], the

weighted sum is obtained.
