Intrinsic and extrinsic motivations: Classic definitions and new directions.
 Contemporary Educational Psychology,
, 2000
"... Intrinsic and extrinsic types of motivation have been widely studied, and the distinction between them has shed important light on both developmental and educational practices. In this review we revisit the classic definitions of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in light of contemporary research ..."

A review of image denoising algorithms, with a new one
 SIMUL
, 2005
"... The search for efficient image denoising methods is still a valid challenge at the crossing of functional analysis and statistics. In spite of the sophistication of the recently proposed methods, most algorithms have not yet attained a desirable level of applicability. All show an outstanding perf ..."

performance when the image model corresponds to the algorithm assumptions but fail in general and create artifacts or remove image fine structures. The main focus of this paper is, first, to define a general mathematical and experimental methodology to compare and classify classical image denoising algorithms
Embedding Quantum Universes in Classical Ones
, 1999
"... this paper; the propositional structure encountered in the quantum mechanics of spin  state measurements of a spin onehalf particle along two directions ( mod p) , that is, the modular, orthocomplemented lattice MO 2 drawn in Fig. 1 ( where p 2 = ( p + ) and q 2 = ( q + ) ) ..."

Optimal contracts and competitive markets with costly state verification
 Journal of Economic Theory
, 1979
"... The insight of Arrow [4] and Debreu [7] that uncertainty is easily incorporated into general equilibrium models is doubleedged. It is true that one need only index commodities by the state of nature, and classical results on the existence and optimality of competitive equilibria can be made to ..."

Adaptive floating search methods in feature selection
 PATTERN RECOGNITION LETTERS
, 1999
"... A new suboptimal search strategy for feature selection is presented. It represents a more sophisticated version of "classical" floating search algorithms (Pudil et al., 1994), attempts to remove some of their potential deficiencies and facilitates finding a solution even closer to the opti ..."

Gaussian interference channel capacity to within one bit
 5534–5562, 2008. EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing
"... Abstract—The capacity of the twouser Gaussian interference channel has been open for 30 years. The understanding on this problem has been limited. The best known achievable region is due to Han and Kobayashi but its characterization is very complicated. It is also not known how tight the existing o ..."

Using our results, we provide a natural generalization of the pointtopoint classical notion of degrees of freedom to interference
Antide Sitter Space, Thermal Phase Transition, and Confinement in Gauge Theories
 Adv. Theor. Math. Phys
, 1998
"... The correspondence between supergravity (and string theory) on AdS space and boundary conformal field theory relates the thermodynamics of N = 4 super YangMills theory in four dimensions to the thermodynamics of Schwarzschild black holes in Antide Sitter space. In this description, quantum phenome ..."

phenomena such as the spontaneous breaking of the center of the gauge group, magnetic confinement, and the mass gap are coded in classical geometry. The correspondence makes it manifest that the entropy of a very large AdS Schwarzschild black hole must scale “holographically ” with the volume of its horizon
Economic Action and Social Structure: The Problem of Embeddedness
 American Journal of Sociology
, 1985
"... How behavior and institutions are affected by social relations is one of the classic questions of social theory. This paper concerns the extent to which economic action is embedded in structures of social relations, in modern industrial society. Although the usual neoclassical accounts provide an &q ..."

Flexible camera calibration by viewing a plane from unknown orientations
, 1999
"... We propose a flexible new technique to easily calibrate a camera. It only requires the camera to observe a planar pattern shown at a few (at least two) different orientations. Either the camera or the planar pattern can be freely moved. The motion need not be known. Radial lens distortion is modeled ..."

The genetical evolution of social behaviour
 I. J. Theor. Biol.
