  • Graves, John A.; Gruber, Jonathan (American Economic Association, 2012-05)
    It is widely recognized that the 2006 Massachusetts health reforms served as a blueprint for national reform under the 2010 Affordable Care Act (ACA). As such, there is interest in using the Massachusetts experience to ...
  • Weber, Joseph P.; Rice, Sarah; Leone, Andrew J.; Willenborg, Michael (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-04)
    The study of periods of market euphoria, such as Holland’s seventeenth-century tulip mania, England’s eighteenth-century South Sea Company, America’s nineteenth-century railroads, or, most recently, the U.S. housing ...
  • Biddle, Gary C.; Hilary, Gilles; Verdi, Rodrigo (Elsevier, 2009-09)
    Prior evidence that higher-quality financial reporting improves capital investment efficiency leaves unaddressed whether it reduces over- or under-investment. This study provides evidence of both in documenting a conditional ...
  • Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth; Zhang, Juanjuan (INFORMS, 2011-05)
    Popularity information is usually thought to reinforce existing sales trends by encour- aging customers to ock to mainstream products with broad appeal. We suggest a countervailing market force: popularity information ...
  • Zoccolan, Davide; Rust, Nicole C.; DiCarlo, James (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    Mounting evidence suggests that ‘core object recognition,’ the ability to rapidly recognize objects despite substantial appearance variation, is solved in the brain via a cascade of reflexive, largely feedforward computations ...
  • 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 ...
  • Lambrecht, Anja; Goldfarb, Avi; Bonatti, Alessandro; Ghose, Anindya; Goldstein, Daniel G.; Lewis, Randall; Rao, Anita; Sahni, Navdeep; Yao, Song (Springer-Verlag, 2014-06)
    We review research on revenue models used by online firms who offer digital goods. Such goods are non-rival, have near zero marginal cost of production and distribution, low marginal cost of consumer search, and low ...
  • 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 ...
  • Anand, Sushant; Rykaczewski, Konrad; Beysens, Daniel; Varanasi, Kripa K.; Bengaluru Subramanyam, Srinivas (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-10)
    Condensation on liquids has been studied extensively in context of breath figure templating, materials synthesis and enhancing heat transfer using liquid impregnated surfaces. However, the mechanics of nucleation and growth ...
  • Val Martin, M.; Lamarque, Jean-Francois; Tilmes, S.; Emmons, L. K.; Schichtel, B. A.; Heald, Colette L. (Copernicus GmbH, 2015-03)
    We use a global coupled chemistry–climate–land model (CESM) to assess the integrated effect of climate, emissions and land use changes on annual surface O[subscript 3] and PM[subscript 2.5] in the United States with a focus ...
  • 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 ...
  • Tan, Tzer Han; Silverberg, Jesse L.; Floss, Daniela S.; Harrison, Maria J.; Henley, Christopher L.; Cohen, Itai (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2015-10)
    Experimental studies show that plant root morphologies can vary widely from straight gravity-aligned primary roots to fractal-like root architectures. However, the opaqueness of soil makes it difficult to observe how ...
  • 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 R.; 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 ...
