Autosomaldominant medullary cystic kidney disease type 1: Clinical and molecular findings in six large Cypriot familiesAAA
Stavrou, Christoforos V.; Koptides, Michael; Tombazos, C.; Psara, E.; Patsias, Charalambos; Zouvani, Ioanna; Kyriacou, Kyriacos C.; Hildebrandt, F.; Christofides, Tasos C.; Pierides, Alkis M.; ConstantinouDeltas, Constantinos D. (2002)Background. Autosomaldominant medullary cystic kidney disease (ADMCKD), a hereditary chronic interstitial nephropathy, recently attracted attention because of the cloning or mapping of certain gene loci, namely NPHP1, ...

Article
Bounds for the distance between the distributions of sums of absolutely continuous i.i.d. convexordered random variables with applications
Christofides, Tasos C.; Vaggelatou, E. (2009)Let X 1, X 2, ... and Y 1, Y 2,... be two sequences of absolutely continuous, independent and identically distributed (i.i.d.) random variables with equal means E(X i) = E(Y i), i = 1, 2,.... In this work we provide upper ...

Article
Central limit theorem for dependent multidimensionally indexed random variables
Christofides, Tasos C.; Mavrikiou, P. M. (2003)We consider dependent multidimensionally indexed random variables whose dependence is determined by the distance of their indices. This provides a generalization of the wellknown notion of mdependence. For the partial ...

Article
The Classical Randomized Response Techniques: Reading Warner (1965) and Greenberg et al. (1969) 50 Years Later
Christofides, Tasos C. (2016)In surveys of human populations, very often, a major source of nonsampling error is the presence of nonresponse. For various reasons, people refuse to respond. In case the issue under investigation is sensitive or stigmatizing, ...

Article
Comments on a method of comparison of randomized response techniques
Christofides, Tasos C. (2010)In a forthcoming paper (A unified framework for analysis and comparison of randomized response surveys of binary characteristics, J. Stat. Plan. Infer., doi:10.1016/j.jspi.2008.12.013) Nayak and Adeshiyan (2009) claimed, ...

Article
Conditional acceptability of random variables
Christofides, Tasos C.; Fazekas, I.; Hadjikyriakou, M. (2016)Acceptable random variables introduced by Giuliano Antonini et al. (J. Math. Anal. Appl. 338:11881203, 2008) form a class of dependent random variables that contains negatively dependent random variables as a particular ...

Article
The Conditional Convex Order and a Comparison Inequality
Christofides, Tasos C.; Hadjikyriakou, M. (2015)In this article, we define the conditional convex order, that is, a stochastic ordering between random variables given a subσalgebra F. For the conditional convex order, we present a few representative results. In addition, ...

Article
Conditional demimartingales and related results
Christofides, Tasos C.; Hadjikyriakou, M. (2013)In this paper we deal with the classes of Fdemimartingales and conditional Ndemimartingales and for these new classes of random objects we provide a number of maximal and moment inequalities as well as related asymptotic ...

Article
A connection between supermodular ordering and positive/negative association
Christofides, Tasos C.; Vaggelatou, E. (2004)In this paper, we show that a vector of positively/negatively associated random variables is larger/smaller than the vector of their independent duplicates with respect to the supermodular order. In that way, we solve an ...

Article
Exponential inequalities for Ndemimartingales and negatively associated random variables
Christofides, Tasos C.; Hadjikyriakou, M. (2009)The class of Ndemimartingales generalizes in a natural way the concept of negative association and includes as special cases martingales with respect to the natural choice of σalgebras. For this class of random variables, ...

Article
A generalized randomized response technique
Christofides, Tasos C. (2003)To eliminate a major source of bias in surveys of human populations resulting from respondents refusal to cooparate in cases where a question of sensitive nature is involved, the idea of "randomized response" was introduced ...

Book Chapter
Indirect questioning in sample surveys
Chaudhuri, Arijit; Christofides, Tasos C. (SpringerVerlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2013)Indirect questioning is a crucial topic in surveys of human populations. When the issue is about a stigmatizing characteristic (for example about illegal drug use), standard survey methodologies are destined to fail because, ...

Article
An Intelligent Hybrid Decision Support System for the Management of Water Resources
Kazeli, H.; KeravnouPapailiou, Elpida T.; Christofides, Tasos C. (2003)During the last two decades the scarcity of water resources is exponentially growing worldwide. Cyprus is one of the countries in the Mediterranean where the water shortage problem is evident and very severe. This paper ...

Article
Item Count Technique in estimating the proportion of people with a sensitive feature
Chaudhuri, Arijit; Christofides, Tasos C. (2007)In assessing the prevalence of a sensitive attribute like habitual heroin consumption in a community of people, indirect questioning is a necessity to extract truth on ensuring protection of privacy. The current literature ...

Article
Item count technique with no floor and ceiling effects
Christofides, Tasos C.; Manoli, Eleni (2020)Conclusions of sample surveys dealing with matters of privacy are often disputed. Many people either refuse to participate or provide false answers. Indirect questioning techniques are designed so that reliable estimates ...
