Typesetting Concrete Mathematics
 TUGBOAT
, 1989
"... ... tried my best to make the book mathematically interesting, but I also knew that it would be typographically interestingbecause it would be the first major use of a new typeface by Hermann Zapf, commissioned by the American Mathematical Society. This typeface, called AMS Euler, had been carefull ..."

. The underlying philosophy of Zapf's Euler design was to capture the flavor of mathematics as it might be written by a mathematician with excellent handwriting. For example, one of the earmarks of AMS Euler is its zero, 'O', which is slightly pointed at the top because a handwritten zero rarely
Basic objects in natural categories
 COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY
, 1976
"... Categorizations which humans make of the concrete world are not arbitrary but highly determined. In taxonomies of concrete objects, there is one level of abstraction at which the most basic category cuts are made. Basic categories are those which carry the most information, possess the highest categ ..."

Motivation through the Design of Work: Test of a Theory. Organizational Behavior and Human Performance,
, 1976
"... A model is proposed that specifies the conditions under which individuals will become internally motivated to perform effectively on their jobs. The model focuses on the interaction among three classes of variables: (a) the psychological states of employees that must be present for internally motiv ..."

in the management literature, in fact little is known about the reasons why "enriched" work sometimes leads to positive outcomes for workers and for their employing organizations. Even less is known about the relative effectiveness of various strategies for carrying out the redesign of work One reason
Just Relax: Convex Programming Methods for Identifying Sparse Signals in Noise
, 2006
"... This paper studies a difficult and fundamental problem that arises throughout electrical engineering, applied mathematics, and statistics. Suppose that one forms a short linear combination of elementary signals drawn from a large, fixed collection. Given an observation of the linear combination that ..."

INFORMATION PRODUCTION AND CAPITAL ALLOCATION: DECENTRALIZED VS. HIERARCHICAL FIRMS
, 2000
"... This paper assesses different organizational forms in terms of their ability to generate information about investment projects and allocate capital to these projects efficiently. A decentralized approach–with small, singlemanager firms–is most likely to be attractive when information about individu ..."

can be costlessly “hardened ” and passed along within the hierarchy. As a concrete application of the theory, the paper discusses the consequences of consolidation in the banking industry. It has been documented that when large banks acquire small banks, there is a pronounced decline in lending
The Computational Brain.
, 1994
"... Keywords: reductionism, neural networks, distributed coding, Karl Pribram, computational neuroscience, receptive field 1.1 The broad goal of this book, expressed at the start, is ``to understand how neurons give rise to a mental life.'' A mental reductionism is assumed in this seductively ..."

of singlecell recording methods. The problem is that millions of neurons participate in every behaviorally meaningful activity, but we normally record from only one neuron at a time, or at best a handful. The temptation is great to overestimate the onemillionth sample obtained from a single neuron
From Sparse Solutions of Systems of Equations to Sparse Modeling of Signals and Images
, 2007
"... A fullrank matrix A ∈ IR n×m with n < m generates an underdetermined system of linear equations Ax = b having infinitely many solutions. Suppose we seek the sparsest solution, i.e., the one with the fewest nonzero entries: can it ever be unique? If so, when? As optimization of sparsity is combin ..."

Abstract This chapter considers, on the one hand, extensions of Description Logics by features not available in the basic framework, but considered important for using Description Logics as a modeling language. In particular, it addresses the extensions concerning: concrete domain constraints; moda ..."

Concentration Of Measure And Isoperimetric Inequalities In Product Spaces
, 1995
"... The concentration of measure phenomenon in product spaces roughly states that, if a set A in a product# N of probability spaces has measure at least one half, "most" of the points of# N are "close" to A. We proceed to a systematic exploration of this phenomenon. The meaning o ..."

A Scheme for Integrating Concrete Domains into Concept Languages
, 1991

In many applications, one would like to be able to refer to concrete domains and predicates on these domains when defining concepts. Examples for such conc ..."
