Ecology of the family as a context for human development: Research perspectives.
 Developmental Psychology,
, 1986
"... This review collates and examines critically a theoretically convergent but widely dispersed body of research on the influence of external environments on the functioning of families as contexts of human development. Investigations falling within this expanding domain include studies of the interac ..."

scientific paradigms for investigating the impact of environment on development. These paradigms provide a useful framework for ordering and analyzing studies bearing on the topic of this review. At the most general level, the research models vary simultaneously along two dimensions. As applied
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 ..."

of conceptual tools that are directly useful in guiding the implementation and evaluation of work redesign projects. In the paragraphs to follow, we examine several existing theoretical approaches to work redesign, with a special eye toward the measurability of the concepts employed and the action implications
The Viscous Model of Quantum Hydrodynamics in Several Dimensions
"... Li Chen * and Michael Dreher# Abstract We investigate the viscous model of quantum hydrodynamics in one and higher space dimensions. Exploiting the entropy dissipation method, we prove the exponential stability of the thermal equilibrium state in 1,2, and 3 dimensions, provided that the domain is a ..."

ON THE NORM OF THE BEURLING–AHLFORS OPERATOR IN SEVERAL DIMENSIONS
, 2008
"... The generalized Beurling–Ahlfors operator S on L p (R n;Λ), where Λ: = Λ(R n) is the exterior algebra with its natural Hilbert space norm, satisfies the estimate ‖S ‖ L(L p (R n;Λ)) ≤ (n/2 + 1)(p ∗ − 1), p ∗: = max{p, p ′}. This improves on earlier results in all dimensions n ≥ 3. The proof is ba ..."

Gambler's Ruin Problem in Several Dimensions
, 2000
"... We give an explicit solution of the Gambler's Ruin Problem when the players use two or more currencies. We also determine the asymptotics of the expected duration of the game when both players have equal amounts of each currency. 1 ..."

Social stigma and selfesteem: The selfprotective properties of stigma
 Psychological Review
, 1989
"... Although several psychological theories predict that members of stigmatized groups should have low global selfesteem, empirical research typically does not support this prediction. It is proposed here that this discrepancy may be explained by considering the ways in which membership in a stigmatize ..."

A firstorder primaldual algorithm for convex problems with applications to imaging
, 2010
"... In this paper we study a firstorder primaldual algorithm for convex optimization problems with known saddlepoint structure. We prove convergence to a saddlepoint with rate O(1/N) in finite dimensions, which is optimal for the complete class of nonsmooth problems we are considering in this paper ..."

GTM: The generative topographic mapping
 Neural Computation
, 1998
"... Latent variable models represent the probability density of data in a space of several dimensions in terms of a smaller number of latent, or hidden, variables. A familiar example is factor analysis which is based on a linear transformations between the latent space and the data space. In this paper ..."

Supergravity and the large N limit of theories with sixteen supercharges
, 1998
"... We consider field theories with sixteen supersymmetries, which includes U(N) YangMills theories in various dimensions, and argue that their large N limit is related to certain supergravity solutions. We study this by considering a system of Dbranes in string theory and then taking a limit where th ..."

Image Representation Using 2D Gabor Wavelets
 IEEE Trans. Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 1996

Completeness criteria for 2D Gabor image representations are important because of their increasing role in man ..."
