  Rectilinear convex region
This probability is the confidence of the rule, and the ratio of the number of tuple inside the range [s,t] is the support of the rule.
The ideal optimized confidence region for this dataset is the region surrounded by two lines parallel to the diagonal.
The test confidence of rectilinear regions is the highest among the three classes of regions.

 Modelling and visualizing uncertainties in multi-data-based spatial analysis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The confidence region of a line segment is used to determine the fuzzy boundary region and -- in an inverse process -- the interior region of an area object.
The confidence region of the whole boundary is the union of the confidence regions of the N line segments.
The fuzzy boundary region of the area object is defined as the confidence region of the boundary line features, and the interior region of the area object is defined as the area which is obtained by subtracting the fuzzy boundary region from the total area of the object.

 Parametric Curves: Confidence Ellipses
One is a confidence ellipse for the population mean, and the other is a confidence ellipse for prediction.
A confidence ellipse for prediction is a confidence region for predicting a new observation in the population.
A confidence ellipse for the population mean is displayed with dashed lines, and a confidence ellipse for prediction is displayed with dotted lines.

 Multiparameter errors
is set to the appropriate one-standard-deviation value, then the precise meaning of the confidence region of figure 7.2 is: ``The probability that the true value of parameter one lies between A and B is 68.3%'' (the probability of a normally-distributed parameter lying within one std.-dev.
Some regions inside the hyperrectangle (namely the corners) have low likelihoods, lower than some regions just outside the rectangle, so the hyperrectangle is not the optimal shape (does not contain the most likely points).
For our two-parameter example, such a confidence region would be the grey region in figure 7.4, and the corresponding probability statement is: ``The probability that parameter one and parameter two simultaneously take on values within the one-standard-deviation likelihood contour is 39.3%''.

 3.2 The sources of strong nonlinearity
To understand the problem we are discussing in rigorous mathematical terms, it is important to distinguish between two phenomena occurring in the computation of the prediction confidence region and its approximations.
What is needed is a way to describe a better approximation to the nonlinear confidence region, to be used in the cases where the covariance matrix is already badly conditioned at the epoch of the initial orbit determination.
The difficulty in doing this is that the confidence ellipsoid in the X space is a 6-dimensional region, and to sample it in an uniform way requires an enormous number of points, most of which would end up in predictions very close to each other when mapped into the 2-dimensional space of the observations Y.

 Case 2: Confidence Limits of Unconstrained Parameter in Presence of Constrained Nuisance Parameters   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
When a constrained nuisance parameter is in the region of a constraint boundary, the confidence limits of a model parameter are affected even when the parameter is itself unconstrained.
A Monte Carlo study was conducted to determine possible effects of a constrained nuisance parameter in the region of a constraint boundary on the size of the confidence limits of an unconstrained parameter of interest.
The abscissa represents the true value of the constrained nuisance parameter, and the ordinate represents the observed size of the distribution of confidence intervals for the parameter of interest, that is, the proportion of intervals that fail to contain zero, the true value of the parameter of interest.

 NATO/SFOR: UN Secretary General S/1997/487
With the encouragement of UNTAES, the HDZ and SDSS negotiated a power-sharing arrangement throughout the region and an agreement on the use of symbols and flags which enabled all regional, municipal and town councils to be duly constituted by 6 June.
Although oral guarantees to appoint two Serbs from the region to the Croatian House of Counties were not fulfilled, a compromise was reached whereby an additional Serb from the Baranja is to be appointed as Assistant Minister for Culture in the Ministry of Education and Culture.
This provides important reassurance to the residents of the region who, in the absence of a bilateral agreement on "soft borders", are deeply apprehensive that they will be prevented arbitrarily from leaving the region or visiting their families in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia when Croatian authority is completely restored.

 Confidence
The confidence contour is the locus of (L, S) pairs expected to encompass the true (L, S) in 95% of similar experiments.
The idea is to select plausible values (values within a 95% confidence region) for which the cracksize at 90% POD is as large as possible, such that any further increase would require parameter estimates no longer supported by the data, according to some criterion.
Simultaneous confidence intervals for multiple parameters also often rely on Normal theory methods due to the computational simplification afforded by the asymptotic behavior of the likelihood function (e.g.: McCallagh and Nelder, 1989).

 Constrained Maximum Likelihood
In practice, our finite samples may not be large enough for confidence regions to avoid constraint boundaries, and this has implications for all parameters in models with inequality constraints, even for those that are not themselves constrained.
Confidence intervals computed by inverting the likelihood ratio statistic are also called profile likelihood confidence intervals.
Thus, in circumstances to be described, the statistics used in the inversion of the Wald or likelihood ratio statistics are modified when the confidence region is within a specified distance of a constraint boundary.

The axes of the linearized confidence ellipsoid are analyzed to determine the difference in orientation of the confidence regions for the two data sets.
The use of confidence regions can be extended to predict the value of the second data set in reducing the uncertainty of parameter estimates, before the data are collected.
The conventional method based on the analysis of data residuals is compared to three other methods; with the weights selected to maximize parameter stability, to minimize the volume of the confidence region, or to minimize the longest axis of the confidence region.

Computation of the probability that an entire boundary estimate lies within the confidence region is a challenging problem, because the estimate is a multi-dimensional non-stationary random process.
The same bounds also apply to confidence regions formed around the estimated boundaries, lower bounding the probability that the entire true boundary lies within the confidence region.
These global confidence regions conveniently display the uncertainty in various geometric parameters such as shape, size, orientation, and position of the estimated object, and facilitate geometric inferences.

 Synthesis Report - Question 8   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Water is likely to be a key issue (high confidence) due to projected drying trends over much of the region and change to a more El Niño-like event state.
In the year 1990, approximately one-third of the world's population lived in countries using more than 20% of their water resources, and by the year 2025 about 60% of a larger total would be living in such a stressed country, only because of population growth.
There has been a gradual shift from "supply-side" approaches (i.e., providing water to satisfy demands by increased capacity reservoirs or structural flood defenses) towards "demand-side" approaches (i.e., trimming demands adequately to match water availability, using water more efficiently, and non-structural means of preparedness to floods and droughts).
