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? ...
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 ...
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 ...
Electrochemical properties of carbon nanoparticles entrapped in silica matrix
(Electrochemical Society, 2008)
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 ...
Disseminated chlorellosis in a dog
(American College of Veterinary Pathologists, 2009)
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 ...
Evolutionary semigroups and Lyapunov theorems in Banach spaces
We study evolutionary semigroups generated by a strongly continuous semi-cocycle over a locally compact metric space acting on Banach fibers. This setting simultaneously covers evolutionary semigroups arising from ...
Temperature and heat flux estimation from sampled transient sensor measurements
Laplace transform is used to solve the problem of heat conduction over a finite slab. The temperature and heat flux on the two surfaces of a slab are related by the transfer functions. These relationships can be used to ...
Hahn's embedding theorem for orders and harmonic analysis on groups with ordered duals
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 ...
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.
Measuring the magnitude of sums of independent random variables
This paper considers how to measure the magnitude of the sum of independent random variables in several ways. We give a formula for the tail distribution for sequences that satisfy the so called Lévy property. We then give ...
Concrete representation of martingales
Let (fn) be a mean zero vector valued martingale sequence. Then there exist vector valued functions (dn) from [0,1]n such that ∫01 dn(x1,...,xn) dxn = 0 for almost all x1,...,xn-1, and such that the law of (fn) is the same ...
A transference theorem for ergodic H1
In this paper, we extend the basic transference theorem for convolution operators on Lp spaces of Coifman and Weiss to H1 spaces.
Some conjectures about integral means of ∂f and ∂¯f
We discuss some conjectural inequalities concerning a problem from the calculus of variations, namely that rank 1 convex functions are quasi-convex. An affirmative answer would also give the best constants for the ...
Inequalities of correlation type for symmetric stable random vectors
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
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 ...
QoS and channel aware packet bundling for VoIP traffic in cellular networks
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 ...
Adaptive Random Sampling for Traffic Volume Measurement
(Springer Science, 2007-02)
Traffic measurement and monitoring are an important component of network management and traffic engineering. With high-speed Internet backbone links, efficient and effective packet sampling techniques for traffic measurement ...
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 ...
Finite time blow up for a Navier-Stokes like equation
We consider an equation similar to the Navier-Stokes equation. We show that there is initial data that exists in every Triebel-Lizorkin or Besov space (and hence in every Lebesgue and Sobolev space), such that after a ...
The spectrum of the kinematic dynamo operator for an ideally conducting fluid
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 ...
