  • Hainmueller, Jens; Su, Yiqing; Xu, Yiqing (UCLA Statistics/American Statistical Association, 2012-08)
    The Stata package ebalance implements entropy balancing, a multivariate reweighting method described in Hainmueller (2012 ) that allows users to reweight a dataset such that the covariate distributions in the reweighted ...
  • Chen, Francis X.; Roig Noguera, Gemma; Isik, Leyla; Boix Bosch, Xavier; Poggio, Tomaso A (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, 2017-03)
    Humans can recognize objects in a way that is invariant to scale, translation, and clutter. We use invariance theory as a conceptual basis, to computationally model this phenomenon. This theory discusses the role of ...
  • Van Eylen, Vincent; Albrecht, Simon (IOP Publishing, 2015-07)
    Solar system planets move on almost circular orbits. In strong contrast, many massive gas giant exoplanets travel on highly elliptical orbits, whereas the shape of the orbits of smaller, more terrestrial, exoplanets remained ...
  • Ponte, R. M.; Wunsch, Carl; Forget, Gael; Campin, Jean-Michel; Heimbach, Patrick; Hill, Christopher N. (Copernicus GmbH, 2015-10)
    This paper presents the ECCO v4 non-linear inverse modeling framework and its baseline solution for the evolving ocean state over the period 1992–2011. Both components are publicly available and subjected to regular, ...
  • Hoge, Richard D.; Triantafyllou, Christina; Wald, Lawrence (Public Library of Science, 2011-09)
    While the BOLD (Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent) contrast mechanism has demonstrated excellent sensitivity to neuronal activation, its specificity with regards to differentiating vascular and parenchymal responses has ...
  • Xue, Hong; Cordero Sanchez, Otto Xavier; Camas, Francisco M.; Trimble, William; Meyer, Folker; Guglielmini, Julien; Rocha, Eduardo P. C.; Polz, Martin F. (American Society for Microbiology, 2015-05)
    Although plasmids and other episomes are recognized as key players in horizontal gene transfer among microbes, their diversity and dynamics among ecologically structured host populations in the wild remain poorly understood. ...
  • Hausman, Jerry A.; Ros, Agustin J. (Springer Science+Business Media, 2013-02)
    We analyze telecommunications prices in Mexico by using a panel data of countries similar to Mexico to estimate demand models for mobile and fixed-line telecommunications. We find that Mexico’s actual mobile and fixed-line ...
  • Billio, Monica; Getmansky, Mila; Pelizzon, Loriana; Lo, Andrew W (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    We propose several econometric measures of connectedness based on principal-components analysis and Granger-causality networks, and apply them to the monthly returns of hedge funds, banks, broker/dealers, and insurance ...
  • BALL, RAY; KOTHARI, S. P.; NIKOLAEV, VALERI V.; Kothari, S. P. (Wiley Blackwell, 2013-12)
    A substantial literature investigates conditional conservatism, defined as asymmetric accounting recognition of economic shocks (“news”), and how it depends on various market, political, and institutional variables. Studies ...
  • Kogan, Leonid; Papanikolaou, Dimitris (Annual Reviews, 2012-07)
    In this review we survey the recent research on the fundamental determinants of stock returns. These studies explore how firms' systematic risk and their investment and production decisions are jointly determined in ...
  • Wilson, Gregory; Needleman, David Berney; Poindexter, Jeremy Roger; Kurchin, Rachel Chava; Peters, Ian Marius; Buonassisi, Anthony (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-04)
    To meet climate targets, power generation capacity from photovoltaics (PV) in 2030 will have to be much greater than is predicted from either steady state growth using today's manufacturing capacity or industry roadmaps. ...
  • Taylor, Joshua Adam; Hover, Franz S. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    Sampling from the importance density is often a costly aspect of particle filters. We present a method by which to replace the most computationally expensive component of the importance density with an efficient approximation, ...
  • McConnachie, Dominic; Wollersheim, Christoph; Waitz, Ian A.; Winchester, Niven Stewart (Elsevier, 2013-12)
    The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has a goal that one billion gallons of renewable jet fuel is consumed by the US aviation industry each year from 2018. We examine the economic and emissions impacts of this goal ...
  • House, Kurt Zenz; Baclig, Antonio C.; Ranjan, Manya; van Nierop, Ernst A.; Wilcox, Jennifer; Herzog, Howard J. (National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2011-12)
    Capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (“air capture”) in an industrial process has been proposed as an option for stabilizing global CO[subscript 2] concentrations. Published analyses suggest these air capture systems ...
  • Pindyck, Robert S.; Wang, Neng (American Economic Association, 2013-11)
    How likely is a catastrophic event that would substantially reduce the capital stock, GDP, and wealth? How much should society be willing to pay to reduce the probability or impact of a catastrophe? We answer these questions ...
  • Joskow, Paul L.; Parsons, John E. (American Academy of Arts and Sciences, 2009-09)
    In the last several years we have seen what appears to be revived global interest in continuing operation of existing nuclear power plants and constructing a new generation of plants.1 A recent International Atomic Energy ...
  • Deschenes, Oliver; Greenstone, Michael (American Economic Association, 2012-12)
    Fisher et al. (2012) (hearafter, FHRS) have uncovered coding and data errors in our paper, Deschênes and Greenstone (2007), henceforth, DG. We acknowledge and are embarrassed by these mistakes. We are grateful to FHRS for ...
  • Henderson, James; Rodgers, Charles; Jones, Russell; Smith, Joel; Martinich, Jeremy; Strzepek, Kenneth (Springer Netherlands, 2013-07)
    A national-scale simulation-optimization model was created to generate estimates of economic impacts associated with changes in water supply and demand as influenced by climate change. Water balances were modeled for the ...
  • Mistry, Karan Hemant; Lienhard, John H. (MDPI AG, 2013-07)
    Second Law efficiency is a useful parameter for characterizing the energy requirements of a system in relation to the limits of performance prescribed by the Laws of Thermodynamics. However, since energy costs typically ...
  • Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    One of the new realities of advertising is that personal information can be used to ensure that advertising is only shown and designed for a select group of consumers who stand to gain most from this information. However, ...
