A scaled conjugate gradient algorithm for fast supervised learning
 NEURAL NETWORKS
, 1993
"... A supervised learning algorithm (Scaled Conjugate Gradient, SCG) with superlinear convergence rate is introduced. The algorithm is based upon a class of optimization techniques well known in numerical analysis as the Conjugate Gradient Methods. SCG uses second order information from the neural netwo ..."

Inefficiency

We introduce an ordinal model of efficiency measurement. Our primitive is a notion of efficiency that is comparative, but not cardinal or absolute. In this framework, we postulate axioms that we believe an ordinal efficiency measure should satisfy. Primary among these are choice consistency and planning consistency, which guide the measurement of efficiency in a firm with access to multiple technologies. Other axioms include scaleinvariance, which says that units of measurement of commodities do not matter, strong monotonicity, which states that efficiency should decrease if the inputs and outputs remain static when the technology becomes unambiguously more efficient, and a very mild continuity condition. These axioms characterize a family of pathbased measures. By replacing the continuity condition with symmetry, which states that the names of commodities do not matter, we obtain the coefficient of resource utilization.
A framework for clustering evolving data streams. In:
 Proc of VLDB’03,
, 2003
"... Abstract The clustering problem is a difficult problem for the data stream domain. This is because the large volumes of data arriving in a stream renders most traditional algorithms too inefficient. In recent years, a few onepass clustering algorithms have been developed for the data stream proble ..."

Shape Indexing Using Approximate NearestNeighbour Search in HighDimensional Spaces
, 1997
"... Shape indexing is a way of making rapid associations between features detected in an image and object models that could have produced them. When model databases are large, the use of highdimensional features is critical, due to the improved level of discrimination they can provide. Unfortunately, f ..."

, finding the nearest neighbour to a query point rapidly becomes inefficient as the dimensionality of the feature space increases. Past indexing methods have used hash tables for hypothesis recovery, but only in lowdimensional situations. In this paper, we show that a new variant of the kd tree search
Robinson (2001): “Inefficient Redistribution
 The American Political Science Review
"... T here are many welldeveloped theories that explain why governments redistribute income, but very fewcan explain why this often is done in a socially inefficient form. In the theory we develop, comparedto efficient methods, inefficient redistribution makes it more attractive to stay in or enter a g ..."

An efficient ascendingbid auction for multiple objects
 AMERICAN ECONOMIC REVIEW
, 1997
"... In multipleobject environments where individual bidders may demand more than one object, standard methods of auction generally result in allocative inefficiency. This paper proposes a new ascendingbid method for auctioning homogeneous goods, such as Treasury bills or communications spectrum. The a ..."

A simplified method of evaluating dose effect experiments
 Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
, 1949
"... The increased emphasis on quantitative biological studies in recent years has resulted in the widespread use of statistical methods for evaluating biological data. Much of this data is of the allornone type and, consequently, it is necessary to solve a doseper cent effect curve. By converting do ..."

Measuring Market Inefficiencies in California's Restructured Wholesale Electricity Market
, 2002
"... We present a method for decomposing wholesale electricity payments into production costs, inframarginal competitive rents, and payments resulting from the exercise of market power. The method also parses actual variable costs into the minimum variable costs necessary to meet demand and increased pro ..."
