The Geometry of Multidimensional Quadratic Utility
 in Models of Parliamentary Roll Call Voting.” Political Analysis
, 2001
"... The purpose of this paper is to show how the geometry of the quadratic utility function in the standard spatial model of choice can be exploited to estimate a model of Parliamentary roll call voting. In a standard spatial model of Parliamentary roll call voting, the legislator votes for the policy o ..."

On the Computation of . . .Portfolios via Truncated Quadratic Utility
, 2008
"... We report a surprising link between optimal portfolios generated by a special type of variational preferences called divergence preferences (cf. [8]) and optimal portfolios generated by classical expected utility. As a special case we connect optimization of truncated quadratic utility (cf. [2]) t ..."

1 The Quadratic Utilization Upper Bound for Arbitrary Deadline RealTime Tasks
"... In high throughput applications, such as in multimedia, it is preferable to fully utilize computing resources, even at the price of some (bounded) delay. However, in realtime systems, where the maximum admissible delay is modeled by a deadline, most of the theory is developed with the assumption of ..."

propose the quadratic utilization bound applicable to tasks with arbitrary deadline, which extends Lehoczky’s result. The improvement is made possible by providing some information about the task periods. Index Terms Realtime and embedded systems, Scheduling, Distributed realtime systems.
Regression Shrinkage and Selection Via the Lasso
 Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B
, 1994
"... We propose a new method for estimation in linear models. The "lasso" minimizes the residual sum of squares subject to the sum of the absolute value of the coefficients being less than a constant. Because of the nature of this constraint it tends to produce some coefficients that are exactl ..."

Hierarchically Classifying Documents Using Very Few Words
, 1997
"... The proliferation of topic hierarchies for text documents has resulted in a need for tools that automatically classify new documents within such hierarchies. Existing classification schemes which ignore the hierarchical structure and treat the topics as separate classes are often inadequate in text ..."

classification where the there is a large number of classes and a huge number of relevant features needed to distinguish between them. We propose an approach that utilizes the hierarchical topic structure to decompose the classification task into a set of simpler problems, one at each node in the classification
Cognitive Radio: BrainEmpowered Wireless Communications

Estimating the Support of a HighDimensional Distribution
, 1999
"... 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 propo ..."

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
Large margin methods for structured and interdependent output variables
 JOURNAL OF MACHINE LEARNING RESEARCH
, 2005
"... Learning general functional dependencies between arbitrary input and output spaces is one of the key challenges in computational intelligence. While recent progress in machine learning has mainly focused on designing flexible and powerful input representations, this paper addresses the complementary ..."

to accomplish this, we propose to appropriately generalize the wellknown notion of a separation margin and derive a corresponding maximummargin formulation. While this leads to a quadratic program with a potentially prohibitive, i.e. exponential, number of constraints, we present a cutting plane algorithm
VisualSEEk: a fully automated contentbased image query system
, 1996
"... 1 We describe a highly functional prototype system for searching by visual features in an image database. The VisualSEEk system is novel in that the user forms the queries by diagramming spatial arrangements of color regions. The system finds the images that contain the most similar arrangements of ..."

By utilizing efficient indexing techniques for color information, region sizes and absolute and relative spatial locations, a wide variety of complex joint color/spatial queries may
