Route Packets, Not Wires: OnChip Interconnection Networks
, 2001
"... Using onchip interconnection networks in place of adhoc global wiring structures the top level wires on a chip and facilitates modular design. With this approach, system modules (processors, memories, peripherals, etc...) communicate by sending packets to one another over the network. The structur ..."

. The structured network wiring gives wellcontrolled electrical parameters that eliminate timing iterations and enable the use of highperformance circuits to reduce latency and increase bandwidth. The area overhead required to implement an onchip network is modest, we estimate 6.6%. This paper introduces
Estimating Wealth Effects without Expenditure Data— or Tears
 Policy Research Working Paper 1980, The World
, 1998
"... Abstract: We use the National Family Health Survey (NFHS) data collected in Indian states in 1992 and 1993 to estimate the relationship between household wealth and the probability a child (aged 6 to 14) is enrolled in school. A methodological difficulty to overcome is that the NFHS, modeled closely ..."

While on average across India a rich (top 20 percent of the asset index) child is 31 percentage points more likely to be enrolled than a poor child (bottom 40 percent), this wealth gap varies from only 4.6 in Kerala, to 38.2 in Uttar Pradesh and 42.6 percentage points

We have systematically made a set of precisely defined, singlegene deletions of all nonessential genes in Escherichia coli K12. Openreading frame coding regions were replaced with a kanamycin cassette flanked by FLP recognition target sites by using a onestep method for inactivation of chromosomal genes and primers designed to create inframe deletions upon excision of the resistance cassette. Of 4288 genes targeted, mutants were obtained for 3985. To alleviate problems encountered in highthroughput studies, two independent mutants were saved for every deleted gene. These mutants—the ‘Keio collection’—provide a new resource not only for systematic analyses of unknown gene functions and gene regulatory networks but also for genomewide testing of mutational effects in a common strain background, E. coli K12 BW25113. We were unable to disrupt 303 genes, including 37 of unknown function, which are candidates for essential genes. Distribution is being handled via GenoBase
A Simple Estimator of Cointegrating Vectors in Higher Order Cointegrated Systems

"... Efficient estimators of cointegrating vectors are presented for systems involving deterministic components and variables of differing, higher orders of integration. The estimators are computed using GLS or OLS, and Wald Statistics constructed from these estimators have asymptotic x2 distributions. T ..."

Cluster analysis is the automated search for groups of related observations in a data set. Most clustering done in practice is based largely on heuristic but intuitively reasonable procedures and most clustering methods available in commercial software are also of this type. However, there is little systematic guidance associated with these methods for solving important practical questions that arise in cluster analysis, such as \How many clusters are there?", "Which clustering method should be used?" and \How should outliers be handled?". We outline a general methodology for modelbased clustering that provides a principled statistical approach to these issues. We also show that this can be useful for other problems in multivariate analysis, such as discriminant analysis and multivariate density estimation. We give examples from medical diagnosis, mineeld detection, cluster recovery from noisy data, and spatial density estimation. Finally, we mention limitations of the methodology, a...

Estimating the Support of a HighDimensional Distribution

Suppose you are given some dataset drawn from an underlying probability distribution P and you want to estimate a "simple" subset S of input space such that the probability that a test point drawn from P lies outside of S is bounded by some a priori specified between 0 and 1. We propose a method to approach this problem by trying to estimate a function f which is positive on S and negative on the complement. The functional form of f is given by a kernel expansion in terms of a potentially small subset of the training data; it is regularized by controlling the length of the weight vector in an associated feature space. The expansion coefficients are found by solving a quadratic programming problem, which we do by carrying out sequential optimization over pairs of input patterns. We also provide a preliminary theoretical analysis of the statistical performance of our algorithm. The algorithm is a natural extension of the support vector algorithm to the case of unlabelled d...
