Shape and motion from image streams under orthography: a factorization method
 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF COMPUTER VISION
, 1992
"... Inferring scene geometry and camera motion from a stream of images is possible in principle, but is an illconditioned problem when the objects are distant with respect to their size. We have developed a factorization method that can overcome this difficulty by recovering shape and motion under orth ..."

We show that under orthographic projection this matrix is of rank 3. Based on this observation, the factorization method
Weak Factor Automata: Comparing (Failure) Oracles and Storacles
"... Abstract. The factor oracle [3] is a data structure for weak factor recognition. It is a deterministic finite automaton (DFA) built on a string p of length m that is acyclic, recognizes at least all factors of p, has m+1 states which are all final, is homogeneous, and has m to 2m − 1 transitions. Th ..."

construction. We thus end up with four deterministic automata types for weak factor recognition: factor oracle, factor storacle, failure factor oracle, and failure factor storacle. We compare them empirically in terms of size. The results show that despite the relative simplicity of (failure) factor (st)oracles
Using the Implicit Association Test to measure selfesteem and selfconcept

A principalcomponents analysis of the Narcissistic Personality Inventory and further evidence of its construct validity.
 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,
, 1988
"... We examined the internal and external validity of the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI). Study 1 explored the internal structure of the NPI responses of 1,018 subjects. Using principalcomponents analysis, we analyzed the tetrachoric correlations among the NPI item responses and found eviden ..."

Human Failures

"... The aim of this project was to investigate whether the military aerospace safety process could be improved with respect to the analysis of human failures. This project considered the potential for reducing risk at the man/machine interface by extending current procedures to incorporate existing huma ..."

Minimal Forbidden Words and Factor Automata
, 1998
"... . Let L(M) be the (factorial) language avoiding a given antifactorial language M . We design an automaton accepting L(M) and built from the language M . The construction is effective if M is finite. If M is the set of minimal forbidden words of a single word v, the automaton turns out to be the fact ..."

A word w 2 A is called a minimal forbidden word for L if w = 2 L and all proper factors of w belong to L
Failure prediction
"... The failure of the ultracapacitor was significantly accelerated by elevated temperature or increased voltage. Because of the capacitance difference between the capacitor cells, after a number of deep charging/discharging cycles, the voltage difference between cells will be enlarged. This will accele ..."

. This will accelerate the aging of the weak ultracapacitors and affect the output power. So, to improve stack reliability, a correct and timely failure prediction is essential. Based on diverse faults, a fuzzy rulebased inference system, which could approximate human reasoning, was considered. With this method we can
The Great Depression in the United States From A Neoclassical Perspective
 Review
, 1999
"... Can neoclassical theory account for the Great Depression in the United States both the downturn in output between 1929 and 1933 and the recovery between 1934 and 1939? Yes and no. Given the large real and monetary shocks to the U.S. economy during 192933, neoclassical theory does predict a l ..."
