  • 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 ...
  • Kanwisher, Nancy; Mather, Mara; Cacioppo, John T. (Sage Publications, 2013-01)
    How can functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) advance cognitive theory? Some have argued that fMRI can do little beyond localizing brain regions that carry out certain cognitive functions (and may not even be able ...
  • 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 ...
  • Prowe, A. E. F.; Pahlow, M.; Dutkiewicz, Stephanie; Oschlies, A. (Copernicus GmbH on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2014-06)
    Marine ecosystem models used to investigate how global change affects ocean ecosystems and their functioning typically omit pelagic plankton diversity. Diversity, however, may affect functions such as primary production ...
  • Ingram, Jessica; Sosa, Brian A.; Demircioglu, Fatma Esra; Chen, James Z.; Ploegh, Hidde; Schwartz, Thomas (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2014-08)
    Lamina-associated polypeptide 1 (LAP1) resides at the nuclear envelope and interacts with Torsins, poorly understood endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-localized AAA+ ATPases, through a conserved, perinuclear domain. We determined ...
  • 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 ...
  • MacMinn, C.W.; Szulczewski, Michael L.; Juanes, Ruben (Elsevier, 2011-04)
    A promising way to mitigate global warming is to sequester CO[subscript 2] in deep saline aquifers. In order to determine which aquifers are the best for sequestration, it is helpful to estimate how much CO[subscript 2] ...
  • 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 ...
