Intertemporal Substitution in Consumption

One of the important determinants of the response of saving and consumption to the real interest rate is the elasticity of intertemporal substitution. That elasticity can be measured by the response of the rate of change of consumption to changes in the...

Open Ocean Momentum Flux Measurements in Moderate to Strong Winds

Measurements of the momentum flux were made by the Reynolds flux and dissipation methods on a deep water stable tower operated by the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, A modified Gill propeller-vane anemometer was used to measure the velocity. Drag coefficients...

Concurrency and Automata on Infinite Sequences

The paper is concerned with ways in which fair concurrency can be modeled using notations for omega-regular languages - languages containing infinite sequences, whose recognizers modified forms of Buchi or Muller-McNaughton automata. There are characterization...

Carbon isotope fractionation in plants

Plants with the C3, C4, and crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) photosynthetic pathways show characteristically different discriminations against 13C during photosynthesis. For each photosynthetic type, no more than slight variations are observed within...

The aging process

Non-negative Matrices and Markov Chains

This book is a photographic reproduction of the book of the same title published in 1981, for which there has been continuing demand on account of its accessible technical level. Its appearance also helped generate considerable subsequent work on inhomogeneous...

Intertemporal Substitution in Consumption

Does a higher real interest rate induce significant postponement of consumption? According to the theory developed here, this question can be answered by studying the relation between the rate of growth of consumption and expected real interest rates....

The one phonon Raman spectrum in microcrystalline silicon

The red shift and the broadening of the Raman signal from microcrystalline silicon films is described in terms of a relaxation in the q-vector selection rule for the excitation of the Raman active optical phonons. The relationship between width and shift...

SV40-transformed simian cells support the replication of early SV40 mutants.

CV-1, an established line of simian cells permissive for lytic growth of SV40, were transformed by an origin-defective mutant of SV40 which codes for wild-type T antigen. Three transformed lines (COS-1, -3, -7) were established and found to contain T...

Sexual differentiation of the central nervous system

Sexual differentiation of reproductive and behavior patterns is largely effected by hormones produced by the gonads. In many higher vertebrates, an integral part of this process is the induction of permanent and essentially irreversible sex differences...

Axonal elongation into peripheral nervous system "bridges" after central nervous system injury in adult rats

The origin, termination, and length of axonal growth after focal central nervous system injury was examined in adult rats by means of a new experimental model. When peripheral nerve segments were used as "bridges" between the medulla and spinal cord,...

Cubic convolution interpolation is a new technique for resampling discrete data. It has a number of desirable features which make it useful for image processing. The technique can be performed efficiently on a digital computer. The cubic convolution interpolation...

Absorbing Boundary Conditions for the Finite-Difference Approximation of the Time-Domain Electromagnetic-Field Equations

When time-domain electromagnetic-field equations are solved using finite-difference techniques in unbounded space, there must be a method limiting the domain in which the field is computed. This is achieved by truncating the mesh and using absorbing boundary...

Downward Comparison Principles in Social Psychology

The literature of social psychology contains a number of phenomena that appear to be paradoxical. For example, persons who face a threatening experience prefer to affiliate with threatened others rather than with nonthreatened others (Schachter, 1959),...

Relation between conductivity and transmission matrix

The dc conductance 1 of a finite system with static disorder is related to its transmission matrix t by the simple relation 1 = (e /2nt) Tr(t t). This relation is derived from the Kubo formula and is valid for any number of scattering channels with or...

Determination of ozone in water by the indigo method

The concentration of aqueous ozone can best be determined by the decolorization of indigo trisulfonate (600 nm, pH below 4) whenever the ozone cannot be measured directly by its u.v. absorption. The method is stoichiometric and extremely fast. The change...

The Psychology of Social Impact

The author proposes a theory of social im- pact specifying the effect of other persons on an in- dividual. According to the theory, when other people are the source of impact and the individual is the target, impact should be a multiplicative function...

The importance of phase in signals

In the Fourier representation of signals, spectral magnitude and phase tend to play different roles and in some situations many of the important features of a signal are preserved if only the phase is retained. Furthermore, under a variety of conditions,...
