#### A Measure of Media Bias

(Department of Economics, 2005)

In this paper we estimate ADA (Americans for Democratic Action) scores for major media outlets such as the New York Times, USA Today, Fox News' Special Report, and all three network television news shows. Our estimates ...

#### Disseminated chlorellosis in a dog

(American College of Veterinary Pathologists, 2009-01)

An adult dog with ataxia and a lingual mass, previously diagnosed as protothecosis, was
euthanized. At the postmortem examination, the lingual mass, regions of the lungs and hilar lymph nodes, liver, mesenteric and sublumbar ...

#### Organizational Structure and the Diversification Discount: Evidence from Commercial Banking

(Blackwell, 2008)

This paper provides evidence on organizational structure, geographic diversification, and performance at bank holding companies (BHCs). First, we show that a BHC's member banks benefit from access to the parent organization's ...

#### Can Entrepreneurship Be Taught?

(2006-02)

Is entrepreneurship an innate ability or an acquired skill? Can entrepreneurial acumen
be achieved and enhanced through education and training, or are certain people “born” to be entrepreneurs
or to act entrepreneurially? ...

#### QoS and channel aware packet bundling for VoIP traffic in cellular networks

(IEEE, 2009-09-16)

We study the problem of multiple packet bundling to improve spectral efficiency in cellular networks. The packet size of real-time data, such as VoIP, is often very small. However, the use of time division multiplexing ...

#### Short Kloosterman Sums for Polynomials over Finite Fields

(2003)

We extend to the setting of polynomials over a finite field certain estimates for short Kloosterman sums originally due to Karatsuba.
Our estimates are then used to establish some uniformity of distribution results in the ...

#### The Author and the Person: Foucauldian Reflection on the Author in Knowledge Organization Systems

(2013)

Based on Foucault's exploration of the author-function, the current study investigates knowledge organization systems' treatment of persons. FRBR and FRAD do well to extend the information in library authority records ...

#### Inequalities of correlation type for symmetric stable random vectors

(2011)

We point out a certain class of functions f and g for which random variables f(X1,...,Xm) and g(Xm+1,...,Xk) are non-negatively correlated for any symmetric jointly stable random variables Xi. We also show another result ...

#### Comparison of sums of independent identically distributed random variables

(2011)

Let Sk be the k-th partial sum of Banach space valued independent identically distributed random variables. In this paper, we compare the tail distribution of ∥Sk∥ with that of ∥Sj∥, and deduce some tail distribution maximal ...

#### On a weak type (1, 1) inequality for a maximal conjugate function

(2011)

In a celebrated paper, Burkholder, Gundy, and Silverstein used Brownian motion to derive a maximal function characterization of Hp spaces for 0 < p < ∞. In this paper, we show that their method extends to higher dimensions ...

#### Bounds on the tail probability of u-statistics and quadratic forms

(2011)

The authors announce a general tail estimate, called a decoupling inequality, for a symmetrized sum of non-linear k-correlations of n > k independent random variables.

#### Values of the Euler Function in Various Sequences

(2005)

Let φ (n) and λ(n) denote the Euler and Carmichael functions, respectively. In this paper, we investigate the equation φ (n)r = λ(n)s, where r ≥ s ≥ 1 are fixed positive integers. We also study those positive integers n, ...

#### Hahn's embedding theorem for orders and harmonic analysis on groups with ordered duals

(2011)

Let G be a locally compact abelian group whose dual group Γ contains a Haar measurable order P. Using the order P we define the conjugate function operator on Lp(G), 1 ≤ p < ∞, as was done by Helson. We will show how to ...

#### Hierarchical Bayesian Models for Predicting The Spread of Ecological Processes

(Ecological Society of America, 2003)

There is increasing interest in predicting ecological processes. Methods to accomplish such predictions must account for uncertainties in observation, sampling,
models, and parameters. Statistical methods for spatio-temporal ...

#### On singular integral and martingale transforms

(2011)

Linear equivalences of norms of vector-valued singular integral operators and vector-valued martingale transforms are studied. In particular, it is shown that the UMD(p)-constant of a Banach space X equals the norm of the ...

#### Decoupling inequalities for the tail probabilities of multivariate u-statistics

(2011)

In this paper we present a decoupling inequality that shows that multivariate U-statistics can be studied as sums of (conditionally) independent random variables. This result has important implications in several areas of ...

#### Lyapunov theorems for Banach spaces

(2011)

We present a spectral mapping theorem for semigroups on any Banach space E. From this, we obtain a characterization of exponential dichotomy for nonautonomous differential equations for E-valued functions. This characterization ...

#### Hierarchical Bayesian Approach to Boundary Value Problems with Stochastic Boundary Conditions

(American Meteorological Society, 2003)

Boundary value problems are ubiquitous in the atmospheric and ocean sciences. Typical settings include bounded, partially bounded, global and limited area domains, discretized for applications of numerical models of
the ...

#### The spectrum of the kinematic dynamo operator for an ideally conducting fluid

(2011)

The spectrum of the kinematic dynamo operator for an ideally conducting fluid and the spectrum of the corresponding group acting in
the space of continuous divergence free vector fields on a compact Riemannian manifold ...

#### Contraction and decoupling inequalities for multilinear forms and u-statistics

(2011)

We prove decoupling inequalities for random polynomials in independent random variables with coefficients in vector space. We use various means of comparison, including rearrangement invariant norms (e.g., Orlicz and Lorentz ...
