Is happiness relative
 Social Indicators Research
, 1991
"... The theory that happiness is relative is based on three postulates: (1) happiness results from comparison. (2) standards of comparison adjust, (3) standards of comparison are arbitrary constructs. On the basis of these postulates the theory predicts: (a) happiness does not depend on real quality of ..."

of at least some conditions does effect happiness lastingly, (c) earlier hardship does not favour later happiness, (d) people are typically positive about their life rather than neutral. It is argued that the theory happinessisrelative mixes up ‘overall happiness ’ with ‘contentment’. Contentment is indeed
TDSEP  an efficient algorithm for blind separation using time structure
, 1998
"... An algorithm for blind source separation based on several timedelayed secondorder correlation matrices is proposed. The technique to construct the unmixing matrix employs first a whitening step and then an approximate simultaneous diagonalisation of several timedelayed secondorder correlation ma ..."

Type 2 diabetes in hepatitis Crelated mixed cryoglobulinaemia patients
, 2003
"... Objectives. Mixed cryoglobulinaemia (MC) is a systemic vasculitis frequently associated with hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection. A possible link between HCV infection and type 2 diabetes has been suggested. This study evaluated the prevalence and clinical phenotype of diabetes in MCHCVþ patients. Me ..."

Nonstandard symmetry classes in mesoscopic normalsuperconducting hybrid structures,” arXiv:condmat/9602137 ; Phys
 Rev. B
, 1997
"... Normalconducting mesoscopic systems in contact with a superconductor are classified by the symmetry operations of time reversal and rotation of the electron's spin. Four symmetry classes are identified, which correspond to Cartan's symmetric spaces of type C, CI, D, and DIII. A detailed ..."

Heterogeneous structure in mixedspecies corvid flocks in flight
 Anim. Behav
, 2013
"... Flocks of birds in flight represent a striking example of collective behaviour. Models of selforganization suggest that repeated interactions among individuals following simple rules can generate the complex patterns and coordinated movements exhibited by flocks. However, such models often assume ..."

that individuals are identical and interchangeable, and fail to account for individual differences and social relationships among group members. Here, we show that heterogeneity resulting from species differences and social structure can affect flock spatial dynamics. Using highresolution photographs of mixed
REDUCTION IN CODIMENSION OF MIXED FOLIATE
, 1987
"... Starting with a proper mixed foliate Ci?submanifold M of dimension 2p\q in a hyperbolic complex space form M(—4) of dimension m(rn^2p+2q), it has been proved that under a suitable condition on second fundamental form there exists a (2p+2q)dimensional totally geodesic submanifold M ' of M su ..."

The results show that the standard errors as well as latent class membership assignment can benefit substantially from incorporating external variables that associate with th ..."

The carbon balance of tropical, temperate and boreal forests.
 Plant Cell and Environment,
, 1999
"... ABSTRACT Forest biomes are major reserves for terrestrial carbon, and major components of global primary productivity. The carbon balance of forests is determined by a number of component processes of carbon acquisition and carbon loss, and a small shift in the magnitude of these processes would ha ..."

emissions of CO 2 remains in the atmosphere. Between 1980, it is estimated (Schimel 1995) that 5·5 ± 0·5 Gt C year 1 were released through fossil fuel combustion and cement production, and 1·6 ± 1·0 Gt C year 1 through tropical deforestation, resulting in total anthropogenic emissions of 7·1 ± 1·1 Gt C
Dumb money: Mutual fund flows and the cross section of stock returns,
 Journal of Financial Economics,

ABSTRACT We use mutual fund flows as a measure for individual investor sentiment for different stocks, and find that high sentiment predicts low future returns. Fund flows are dumb ..."

Following While Teo and Woo (2001) provide valuable and convincing evidence, our approach is more general. The benefit
ARITHMETIC MIXED SHEAVES

"... We give a formalism of arithmetic mixed sheaves, including the case of arithmetic mixed Hodge structures which are recently studied by P. Griffiths, M. Green [16], [17] and M. Asakura [1]. This notion became necessary for us to describe the image of Griffiths ’ AbelJacobi map for a generic hypersur ..."
