  • Ellison, Glenn (American Economic Association, 2013-07)
    A large literature following Hirsch (2005) has proposed citation- based indexes of individuals' research output. This paper views Hirsch's index as one member of a larger class and examines how well different indexes align ...
  • Chiou, Lesley; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2012-08)
    Firms that sell via a direct channel and via indirect channels have to decide whether to allow third-party sellers to use trademarked brand names of products in their advertising. This question has been particularly ...
  • Tan, Vincent Yan Fu; Anandkumar, Animashree; Willsky, Alan S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-01)
    The problem of learning tree-structured Gaussian graphical models from i.i.d. samples is considered. The influence of the tree structure and the parameters of the Gaussian distribution on the learning rate as the number ...
  • Pinto, Nicolas; DiCarlo, James; Cox, David D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-06)
    In recent years, large databases of natural images have become increasingly popular in the evaluation of face and object recognition algorithms. However, Pinto et al. previously illustrated an inherent danger in using such ...
  • Einav, Liran; Finkelstein, Amy; Pascu, Iuliana; Cullen, Mark R. (American Economic Association, 2012-10)
    We analyze the extent to which individuals' choices over five employer-provided insurance coverage decisions and one 401(k) investment decision exhibit systematic patterns, as would be implied by a general utility component ...
  • Mogilner, Cassie; Aaker, Jennifer; Kamvar, Sep (University of Chicago Press, The, 2011-12)
    Consumers want to be happy, and marketers are increasingly trying to appeal to consumers’ pursuit of happiness. However, the results of six studies reveal that what happiness means varies, and consumers’ choices reflect ...
  • Battaglia, Peter W.; Kersten, Daniel; Schrater, Paul R. (Public Library of Science, 2011-06)
    Determining distances to objects is one of the most ubiquitous perceptual tasks in everyday life. Nevertheless, it is challenging because the information from a single image confounds object size and distance. Though our ...
  • Bechtel, Michael M.; Hainmueller, Jens (Wiley-Blackwell Pubishers, 2011-07)
    Dominant theories of electoral behavior emphasize that voters myopically evaluate policy performance and that this shortsightedness may obstruct the welfare-improving effect of democratic accountability. However, we know ...
  • Altshuler, Yaniv; Fire, Michael; Aharony, Nadav; Elovici, Yuval; Pentland, Alex Paul (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2012-04)
    As truly ubiquitous wearable computers, mobile phones are quickly becoming the primary source for social, behavioral and environmental sensing and data collection. Today’s smartphones are equipped with increasingly more ...
  • Nickel, Marcel Dominik Johannes (American Physical Society, 2009-04)
    We explore the phase diagram of Nambu—Jona-Lasinio-type models near the chiral critical point allowing for phases with spatially inhomogeneous chiral condensates. In the chiral limit it turns out that the region in the ...
  • Leeb, Steven B.; Kirtley, James L., Jr.; Wichakool, Warit; Remscrim, Zachary N.; Tidd, Chad N.; Goshorn, J. Andrew; Thomas, Kevin; Cox, Robert W.; Chaney, Rachel (American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE), 2010-06)
    Many proposals for future power systems for warships are extant. Anticipated improvements in capability, operating economy, and signature reduction may not be uniquely associated with these power systems. Alternatives are ...
  • Gnanadesikan, Anand; Emanuel, Kerry Andrew; Vecchi, Gabriel A.; Anderson, Whit G.; Hallberg, Robert (American Geophysical Union, 2010-09)
    Because ocean color alters the absorption of sunlight, it can produce changes in sea surface temperatures with further impacts on atmospheric circulation. These changes can project onto fields previously recognized to alter ...
  • Buehler, Markus J.; Yung, Yu Ching (American Institute of Physics, 2010-01)
    Proteins form the basis of a wide range of biological materials such as hair, skin, bone, spider silk, or cells, which play an important role in providing key functions to biological systems. The focus of this article is ...
  • Huskamp, Haiden A.; O'Malley, A. James; Horvitz-Lennon, Marcela; Taub, Anna Levine; Berndt, Ernst R.; Donohue, Julie M. (American Psychiatric Association, 2013-04)
    Objective The authors examined physician adoption of second-generation antipsychotic medications and identified physician-level factors associated with early adoption. Methods The authors estimated Cox proportional-hazards ...
  • Anderson, Eric T.; Fong, Nathan Minsheng; Simester, Duncan; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (American Marketing Association, 2010-04)
    When a multichannel retailer opens its first retail store in a state, the firm is obligated to collect sales taxes on all Internet and catalog orders shipped to that state. This article assesses how opening a store affects ...
  • Gruber, Jonathan; Chan, David Chimin (American Economic Association, 2010-05)
    As health care reform moves forward in the United States, one common feature of virtually all proposals is to expand coverage for low income populations not through a traditional public insurance model, but rather ...
  • Vitale, Salvatore; Del Pozzo, Walter (American Physical Society, 2014-01)
    The upcoming direct detection of gravitational waves will open a window to probing the strong-field regime of general relativity. As a consequence, waveforms that include the presence of deviations from general relativity ...
  • Doshi, Peter (BMJ Publishing Group, Ltd., 2009-09)
    WHO has revised its definition of pandemic flu in response to current experience with A/H1N1. Peter Doshi argues that our plans for pandemics need to take into account more than the worst case scenarios The current flu ...
  • Longstaff, Francis A.; Pan, Jun; Pederson, Lasse H.; Singleton, Kenneth J. (American Economic Association, 2011-04)
    We study the nature of sovereign credit risk using an extensive set of sovereign CDS data. We find that the majority of sovereign credit risk can be linked to global factors. A single principal component accounts for 64 ...
  • Pham, Quang-Cuong; Tabareau, Nicolas; Slotine, Jean-Jacques E. (Public Library of Science, 2009-01)
    The functional role of synchronization has attracted much interest and debate: in particular, synchronization may allow distant sites in the brain to communicate and cooperate with each other, and therefore may play a ...
