and DL-PCBs in some selected Estonian and imported food samples.
Alaluusua and colleagues worked on similar study in South Finland on the causative role of environ- mental toxin polyhalogenetated aromatic hydrocarbons (PCB), polychlorinated dibenzofuran (PCDF
), which are the wide spread environmental pollutant.
Even with fairly conservative assumptions, the ascertained health risks suggest that greater attention should be paid to the behavior and toxicity of the PCDD and PCDF
group, and to exploration of exposure reduction possibilities.
Exposure to the 'ith' individual PCDD, PCDF
, or PCB compound is expressed in terms of an equivalent exposure of TCDD by computing the product of the concentration of the individual compound (Ci) and its assigned 'TEFi'.

presented a novel formulation for optimal sensor selection and in-network fusion for distributed inference known as the prize-collecting data fusion (PCDF
) in terms of the optimal trade-off between the costs of aggregating the selected set of sensor measurements and the resulting inference performance at the fusion center.
