That is why for H and H+ patients the data were fitted at odd N, whereas for control subjects the fit was performed at even N. Because BSDT ROCs are only defined at some discrete false alarms, Fj, between them the values of F do not exist at all. Lines connecting the BSDT predictions are drawn to indicate the points related to particular ROC. g. the circled cross in Fig.

2 Agents Devoted to Render the Internal and Superficial Defects Maps These agents accept as inputs the variables related to the operating conditions of the transformation process and those related to the superficial quality of the supervision system and produce as output a defects map accordingly to the type of defect demanded by the other agents making queries. The adopted technology used to render the defects maps must tackle with the geometrical uncertainty related to the location of the defects commented above.
