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? ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
The purpose of this article is to summerize some recent results of the author about Orlicz-Lorentz spaces - function spaces that provide a common generalization of Orlicz spaces and Lorentz spaces.
Shifts in the Spatio-Temporal Growth Dynamics of Shortleaf Pine
(Environmental and Ecological Statistics, 2007)
Previous studies focusing on the growth history of pinus echinata at the edge of its geographical range have suggested that changes in growth correspond to climatic and non-climatic (e.g., anthropogenic) factors. We employ ...
Hardy martingales and Jensen's inequality
Hardy martingales were introduced by Garling and used to study analytic functions on the N-dimensional torus TN, where analyticity is defined using a lexicographic order on the dual group ZN. We show how, by using basic ...
The annular hull theorems for the kinematic dynamo operator for an ideally conducting fluid
The group generated by the kinematic dynamo operator in the space of continuous divergence-free sections of the tangent bundle of a smooth manifold is studied. As shown in previous work, if the underlying Eulerian flow is ...
Decomposition of analytic measures on groups and measure spaces
This paper provides a new approach to proving generalizations of the F.&M. Riesz Theorem, for example, the result of Helson and Lowdenslager, the result of Forelli (and de Leeuw and Glicksberg), and more recent results of ...
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 ...
A Hierarchical Bayesian Non-linear Spatio-temporal Model for the Spread of Invasive Species with Application to the Eurasian Collared-Dove
(Environmental and Ecological Statistics, 2007)
Differential equation based advection-diffusion models have been used in atmospheric science to mimic complex processes such as weather and climate. Differential and partial-differential equations (PDE's) have become popular ...
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 ...
The Gaussian cotype of operators from C(K)
We show that the canonical embedding C(K) to LΦ(μ) has Gaussian cotype p, where μ is a Radon probability measure on K, and Φ is an Orlicz function equivalent to tp(log t)p/2 for large t.
Comparison of sums of independent identically distributed random variables
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 singular integral and martingale transforms
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 ...
Contraction and decoupling inequalities for multilinear forms and u-statistics
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 ...
