  • 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, ...
  • Santos, Eduardo; Ferrão, Paulo; Margarido, Fernanda; Ford, Patrick Benjamin; Van Vliet, Krystyn J; Olivetti, Elsa A. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2016-03)
    The challenges brought on by the increasing complexity of electronic products, and the criticality of the materials these devices contain, present an opportunity for maximizing the economic and societal benefits derived ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Wolitzky, Alexander Greenberg (Econometric Society, 2011-02)
    The majority of labor transactions throughout much of history and a significant fraction of such transactions in many developing countries today are “coercive,” in the sense that force or the threat of force plays a central ...
  • Marx, Benjamin; Stoker, Thomas Martin; Suri, Tavneet (American Economic Association, 2013-11)
    The global expansion of urban slums poses questions for economic research as well as problems for policymakers. We provide evidence that the type of poverty observed in contemporary slums of the developing world is ...
  • Broda, Christian; Parker, Jonathan A. (Elsevier, 2014-09)
    Households in the Nielsen Consumer Panel were surveyed about their 2008 Economic Stimulus Payment. In estimates identified by the randomized timing of disbursement, the average household׳s spending rose by 10 percent the ...
  • Acemoglu, Daron; Robinson, James A (American Economic Association, 2013-02)
    The standard approach to policy making and advice in economics implicitly or explicitly ignores politics and political economy and maintains that if possible, any market failure should be rapidly removed. This essay explains ...
  • Meredith, Laura Kelsey; Commane, R.; Munger, J. W.; Dunn, A.; Tang, J.; Wofsy, S. C.; Prinn, Ronald G. (Copernicus GmbH on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2014-09)
    Our understanding of biosphere–atmosphere exchange has been considerably enhanced by eddy covariance measurements. However, there remain many trace gases, such as molecular hydrogen (H[subscript 2]), that lack suitable ...
  • Bahl, Justin; Pham, Truc T.; Easterday, Bernard C.; Halpin, Rebecca A.; Stockwell, Timothy B.; Wentworth, David E.; Kayali, Ghazi; Krauss, Scott; Schultz-Cherry, Stacey; Webster, Robert G.; Webby, Richard J.; Swartz, Michael D.; Smith, Gavin J. D.; Hill, Nichola; Hussein, Islam; Ma, Eric Jinglong; Runstadler, Jonathan (Public Library of Science, 2016-05)
    Despite evidence for avian influenza A virus (AIV) transmission between wild and domestic ecosystems, the roles of bird migration and poultry trade in the spread of viruses remain enigmatic. In this study, we integrate ...
