A Survey of Weak Instruments and Weak Identification in Generalized Method of Moments
 Journal of Business & Economic Statistics
, 2002
"... Weak instruments arise when the instruments in linear instrumental variables (IV) regression are weakly correlated with the included endogenous variables. In generalized method of moments (GMM), more generally, weak instruments correspond to weak identification of some or all of the unknown paramete ..."

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
Sparse coding with an overcomplete basis set: a strategy employed by V1
 Vision Research
, 1997
"... The spatial receptive fields of simple cells in mammalian striate cortex have been reasonably well described physiologically and can be characterized as being localized, oriented, and ban@ass, comparable with the basis functions of wavelet transforms. Previously, we have shown that these receptive f ..."

for representing a given input, and so the inputoutput function will deviate from being purely linear. These deviations from linearity provide a potential explanation for the weak forms of nonlinearity observed in the response properties of cortical simple cells, and they further make predictions about
Motion of level sets by mean curvature
 II, Trans. Amer. Math. Soc
"... We construct a unique weak solution of the nonlinear PDE which asserts each level set evolves in time according to its mean curvature. This weak solution allows us then to define for any compact set Γ o a unique generalized motion by mean curvature, existing for all time. We investigate the various ..."

Robust Inference with Multiway Clustering
, 2006
"... In this paper we propose a new variance estimator for OLS as well as for nonlinear estimators such as logit, probit and GMM. This variance estimator enables clusterrobust inference when there is twoway or multiway clustering that is nonnested. The variance estimator extends the standard clusterr ..."

How does a brain build a cognitive code
 Psychological Review
, 1980
"... This article indicates how competition between afferent data and learned feedback expectancies can stabilize a developing code by buffering committed populations of detectors against continual erosion by new environmental demands. Tille gating phenomena that result lead to dynamically maintained cri ..."

]lliculooccipital waves; olfactory coding, corticogeniculate feedback, matching of proprioceptive and terminal motor maps, and cerebral dominance. The psychophysiological mechanisms that unify these effects are inherently nonlinear and parallel and are inequivalent to the computer, probabilistic, and linear models
Motor neuron degeneration in mice that express a human Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase mutation. Science 264: 1772–5
, 1994
"... Mutations of human Cu,Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD) are found in about 20 percent of patients with familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Expression of high levels of human SOD containing a substitution of glycine to alanine at position 93a change that has little effect on enzyme activityca ..."

lateral sclerosis occurs in both sporadic and familial forms and results from the degeneration of motor neurons in the cortex, brainstem, and spinal cord. The disease typically begins in adults as an asymmetric weakness in two or more limbs and then progresses to complete paralysis (1). Familial ALS
Learning attractor landscapes for learning motor primitives
 in Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems
, 2003
"... Many control problems take place in continuous stateaction spaces, e.g., as in manipulator robotics, where the control objective is often defined as finding a desired trajectory that reaches a particular goal state. While reinforcement learning offers a theoretical framework to learn such control p ..."

, we represent canonical policies in terms of differential equations with welldefined attractor properties. By nonlinearly transforming the canonical attractor dynamics using techniques from nonparametric regression, almost arbitrary new nonlinear policies can be generated without losing the stability
SOME ASYMPTOTIC METHODS FOR STRONGLY NONLINEAR EQUATIONS

Further, the obtained approximate analytical solutions are valid for the whole solution domain. The limitations of traditional pertu ..."

Hyperbolic Conservation Laws with Stiff Relaxation Terms and Entropy
 Comm. Pure Appl. Math

Reduced systems, inviscid and viscous local conservation laws, and weakly nonlinear limits are derived through asymptotic expansions. An entropy condition is introduced for N \Theta N systems that ..."
