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 ...
Electrochemical Properties of Carbon Nanoparticles Entrapped in Silica Matrix
(Electrochemical Society, 2008-10)
Carbon-based electrode materials have been widely used for many years for electrochemical charge storage, energy generation, and catalysis. We have developed an electrode material with high specific capacitance by entrapping ...
Organizational Structure and the Diversification Discount: Evidence from Commercial Banking
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?
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? ...
The Distribution of Non-Commutative Rademacher Series
We give a formula for the tail of the distribution of the non-commutative Rademacher series, which generalizes the result that is already available in the commutative case. As a result, we are able to calculate the norm ...
p-summing operators on injective tensor products of spaces
Let X, Y and Z be Banach spaces, and let Πp(Y,Z) (1 ≤ p < ∞) denote the space of p-summing operators from Y to Z. We show that, if X is a £∞-space, then a bounded linear operator T:X⊗εY→Z is 1-summing if and only if a ...
A counterexample to the smoothness of the solution to an equation arising in fluid mechanics
We analyze the equation coming from the Eulerian-Lagrangian description of fluids. We discuss a couple of ways to extend this notion to viscous fluids. The main focus of this paper is to discuss the first way, due to ...
Conditions implying regularity of the three dimensional Navier-Stokes equation
We obtain logarithmic improvements for conditions for regularity of the Navier-Stokes equation, similar to those of Prodi-Serrin or Beale-Kato-Majda. Some of the proofs make use of a stochastic approach involving Feynman-Kac ...
Efficient Statistical Mapping of Avian Count Data
(Environmental and Ecological Statistics, 2005)
We develop a spatial modeling framework for count data that is efficient to implement in high-dimensional prediction problems. We consider spectral parameterizations for the spatially varying mean of the Poisson model. The ...
Predicting the Spatial Distribution of Ground Flora on Large Domains Using a Hierarchical Bayesian Model
(Landscape Ecology, 2003)
Accomodation of important sources of uncertainty in ecological models is essential to realistically predicting ecological processes. The purpose of this project is to develop a robust methodology for modeling natural ...
Comparison of Orlicz-Lorentz spaces
Orlicz-Lorentz spaces provide a common generalization of Orlicz spaces and Lorentz spaces. They have been studied by many authors, including Mastylo, Maligranda, and Kaminska. In this paper, we consider the problem of ...
Whittaker-Fourier Coefficients of Metaplectic Eisenstein Series
It is shown that the Fourier-Whittaker coefficients of Eisenstein series on the n-fold cover of GL(n) are L-functions, improving prior results of T. Suzuki.
Character Sums over Integers with Restricted g-ary Digits
We establish upper bounds for multiplicative character sums and exponential sums over sets of integers that are described by various properties of their digits in a fixed base g ≥ 2. Our main tools are the Weil and ...
On the Number of Sparse RSA Exponents
An RSA modulus is a product M = pl of two primes p and l. We show that for almost all RSA moduli M, the number of sparse exponents e (which allow for fast RSA encryption) with the property that gcd(e,φ(M)) = 1 (hence RSA ...
Short Kloosterman Sums for Polynomials over Finite Fields
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 ...
Matrix inequalities with applications to the theory of iterated kernels
For an m × n matrix A with nonnegative real entries, Atkinson, Moran and Watterson proved the inequality s(A)3 ≤ mns(AAtA), where At is the transpose of A, and s(·) is the sum of the entries. We extend this result to finite ...
Complemented subspaces of spaces obtained by interpolation
If Z is a quotient of a subspace of a separable Banach space X, and V is any separable Banach space, then there is a Banach couple (A0,A1) such that A0 and A1 are isometric to X⊕V, and any intermediate space obtained using ...
The Hardy operator and Boyd indices
We give necessary and sufficient conditions for the Hardy operator to be bounded on a rearrangement invariant quasi-Banach space in terms of its Boyd indices.
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 ...
