The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom
, 2007
"... This is a visionary book written by a man on a mission. It articulates one possible answer to the question of what might come after the proprietarybased knowledgebased economy that currently exists in advanced countries. Benkler is professor of law at Yale Law School and one of the most ardent pro ..."

This has become feasible because the capital required for social production and exchange in the networked information economy is relatively cheap and widely distributed. Much of the book argues the perceived advantages of the networked information economy from a multi
Determinants of Economic Growth: A CrossCountry Empirical Study
, 1996
"... Empirical findings for a panel of around 100 countries from 1960 to 1990 strongly support the general notion of conditional convergence. For a given starting level of real per capita GDP, the growth rate is enhanced by higher initial schooling and life expectancy, lower fertility, lower government c ..."

consumption, better maintenance of the rule of law, lower inflation, and improvements in the terms of trade. For given values of these and other variables, growth is negatively related to the initial level of real per capita GDP. Political freedom has only a weak effect on growth but there is some indication
Numerical integration of the Cartesian equations of motion of a system with constraints: molecular dynamics of nalkanes
 J. Comput. Phys
, 1977
"... A numerical algorithm integrating the 3N Cartesian equations of motion of a system of N points subject to holonomic constraints is formulated. The relations of constraint remain perfectly fulfilled at each step of the trajectory despite the approximate character of numerical integration. The method ..."

Probabilistic Roadmaps for Path Planning in HighDimensional Configuration Spaces
 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION
, 1996
"... A new motion planning method for robots in static workspaces is presented. This method proceeds in two phases: a learning phase and a query phase. In the learning phase, a probabilistic roadmap is constructed and stored as a graph whose nodes correspond to collisionfree configurations and whose edg ..."

to be relatively easy to choose, Increased efficiency can also be achieved by tailoring some components of the method (e.g., the local planner) to the considered robots. In this paper the method is applied to planar articulated robots with many degrees of freedom. Experimental results show that path planning can
Human agency in social cognitive theory
 The American Psychologist
, 1989
"... ABSTRACT: The present article examines the nature and function of human agency within the conceptual model of triadic reciprocal causation. In analyzing the operation of human agency in this interactional causal structure, social cognitive theory accords a central role to cognitive, vicarious, self ..."

A 3D Perfectly Matched Medium from Modified Maxwell's Equations with Stretched Coordinates
 Microwave Opt. Tech. Lett
, 1994
"... A modified set of Maxwell's equations is presented that includes complex coordinate stretching along the three cartesian coordinates. The added degrees of freedom in the modified Maxwell's equations allow the specification of absorbing boundaries with zero reflection at all angles of incid ..."

A constraintbased godobject method for haptic display
 In International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems
, 1995
"... Haptic display is the process of applying forces to a human \observer " giving the sensation of touching and interacting with real physical objects. Touch is unique among the senses because it allows simultaneous exploration and manipulation of an environment. A haptic display system has three ..."

On the 'Piano Movers' Problem II. General Techniques for Computing Topological Properties of Real Algebraic Manifolds
, 1982
"... This paper continues the discussion, begun in [SS], of the following problem, which arises in robotics: Given a collection of bodies B, which may be hinged, i.e. may allow internal motion around various joints, and given a region bounded by a collection of polyhedral or other simple walls, decide ..."

Our method, which is also related to a technique outlined by Reif, also gives a general (but not polynomialtime) procedure for calculating all of the homology groups
The Convex Geometry of Linear Inverse Problems

"... In applications throughout science and engineering one is often faced with the challenge of solving an illposed inverse problem, where the number of available measurements is smaller than the dimension of the model to be estimated. However in many practical situations of interest, models are constr ..."

This paper provides a general framework to convert notions of simplicity into convex penalty functions, resulting in convex optimization solutions to linear, underdetermined inverse problems
ModelBased Recognition and Localization From Sparse Range or Tactile Data

This paper discusses how local measurements of threedimensional pool[ions and surface normals (recorded by a set of tactile sensors, or by threedimensional range sensors), may be used o identify and locate objects, from among a set, of known objects. The objects are modeled as po!yhedra having up t ..."
