Algorithmic mechanism design
 Games and Economic Behavior
, 1999
"... We consider algorithmic problems in a distributed setting where the participants cannot be assumed to follow the algorithm but rather their own selfinterest. As such participants, termed agents, are capable of manipulating the algorithm, the algorithm designer should ensure in advance that the agen ..."

that the agents ’ interests are best served by behaving correctly. Following notions from the field of mechanism design, we suggest a framework for studying such algorithms. Our main technical contribution concerns the study of a representative task scheduling problem for which the standard mechanism design tools
RealTime Tracking of NonRigid Objects using Mean Shift
 IEEE CVPR 2000
, 2000
"... A new method for realtime tracking of nonrigid objects seen from a moving camera isproposed. The central computational module is based on the mean shift iterations and nds the most probable target position in the current frame. The dissimilarity between the target model (its color distribution) an ..."

Mean shift: A robust approach toward feature space analysis
 In PAMI
, 2002
"... A general nonparametric technique is proposed for the analysis of a complex multimodal feature space and to delineate arbitrarily shaped clusters in it. The basic computational module of the technique is an old pattern recognition procedure, the mean shift. We prove for discrete data the convergence ..."

the convergence of a recursive mean shift procedure to the nearest stationary point of the underlying density function and thus its utility in detecting the modes of the density. The equivalence of the mean shift procedure to the Nadaraya–Watson estimator from kernel regression and the robust M
Happiness is everything, or is it? Explorations on the meaning of psychological wellbeing
, 1989
"... Reigning measures of psychological wellbeing have little theoretical grounding, despite an extensive literature on the contours of positive functioning. Aspects of wellbeing derived from this literature (i.e., selfacceptance, positive relations with others, autonomy, environmental mastery, purpos ..."

Constrained Kmeans Clustering with Background Knowledge
 In ICML
, 2001
"... Clustering is traditionally viewed as an unsupervised method for data analysis. However, in some cases information about the problem domain is available in addition to the data instances themselves. In this paper, we demonstrate how the popular kmeans clustering algorithm can be pro tably modi ed ..."

Representing twentieth century spacetime climate variability, part 1: development of a 196190 mean monthly terrestrial climatology
 Journal of Climate
, 1999
"... The construction of a 0.58 lat 3 0.58 long surface climatology of global land areas, excluding Antarctica, is described. The climatology represents the period 1961–90 and comprises a suite of nine variables: precipitation, wetday frequency, mean temperature, diurnal temperature range, vapor pressur ..."

Exact Sampling with Coupled Markov Chains and Applications to Statistical Mechanics
, 1996
"... For many applications it is useful to sample from a finite set of objects in accordance with some particular distribution. One approach is to run an ergodic (i.e., irreducible aperiodic) Markov chain whose stationary distribution is the desired distribution on this set; after the Markov chain has ..."

Specificity and mechanism of action of some commonly used protein kinase inhibitors
 Biochem. J
, 2000
"... The specificities of 28 commercially available compounds reported to be relatively selective inhibitors of particular serine� threoninespecific protein kinases have been examined against a large panel of protein kinases. The compounds KT 5720, Rottlerin and quercetin were found to inhibit many prot ..."

protein kinases, sometimes much more potently than their presumed targets, and conclusions drawn from their use in cellbased experiments are likely to be erroneous. Ro 318220 and related bisindoylmaleimides, as well as H89, HA1077 and Y 27632, were more selective inhibitors, but still inhibited two
A comparison of mechanisms for improving TCP performance over wireless links
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
, 1997
"... Reliable transport protocols such as TCP are tuned to perform well in traditional networks where packet losses occur mostly because of congestion. However, networks with wireless and other lossy links also suffer from significant losses due to bit errors and handoffs. TCP responds to all losses by i ..."

Hierarchies from Fluxes in String Compactifications
