Nonparametric estimation of average treatment effects under exogeneity: a review
 REVIEW OF ECONOMICS AND STATISTICS
, 2004
"... Recently there has been a surge in econometric work focusing on estimating average treatment effects under various sets of assumptions. One strand of this literature has developed methods for estimating average treatment effects for a binary treatment under assumptions variously described as exogen ..."

considered estimation and inference for average treatment effects under weaker assumptions than typical of the earlier literature by avoiding distributional and functionalform assumptions. Various methods of semiparametric estimation have been proposed, including estimating the unknown regression functions
Stochastic relaxation, Gibbs distributions and the Bayesian restoration of images.
 IEEE Trans. Pattern Anal. Mach. Intell.
, 1984
"... AbstractWe make an analogy between images and statistical mechanics systems. Pixel gray levels and the presence and orientation of edges are viewed as states of atoms or molecules in a latticelike physical system. The assignment of an energy function in the physical system determines its Gibbs di ..."

system isolates low energy states ("annealing"), or what is the same thing, the most probable states under the Gibbs distribution. The analogous operation under the posterior distribution yields the maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimate of the image given the degraded observations. The result
PVM: A Framework for Parallel Distributed Computing
 Concurrency: Practice and Experience
, 1990
"... The PVM system is a programming environment for the development and execution of large concurrent or parallel applications that consist of many interacting, but relatively independent, components. It is intended to operate on a collection of heterogeneous computing elements interconnected by one or ..."

PVM contains facilities for concurrent, sequential, or conditional execution of application
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 ..."

The process group approach to reliable distributed computing
 Communications of the ACM
, 1993
"... The difficulty of developing reliable distributed softwme is an impediment to applying distributed computing technology in many settings. Expeti _ with the Isis system suggests that a structured approach based on virtually synchronous _ groups yields systems that are substantially easier to develop, ..."

Localitysensitive hashing scheme based on pstable distributions
 In SCG ’04: Proceedings of the twentieth annual symposium on Computational geometry
, 2004
"... inÇÐÓ�Ò We present a novel LocalitySensitive Hashing scheme for the Approximate Nearest Neighbor Problem underÐÔnorm, based onÔstable distributions. Our scheme improves the running time of the earlier algorithm for the case of theÐnorm. It also yields the first known provably efficient approximate ..."

The physiology of the grid: An open grid services architecture for distributed systems integration
, 2002
"... In both ebusiness and escience, we often need to integrate services across distributed, heterogeneous, dynamic “virtual organizations ” formed from the disparate resources within a single enterprise and/or from external resource sharing and service provider relationships. This integration can be t ..."

The Aurora Experimental Framework for the Performance Evaluation of Speech Recognition Systems under Noisy Conditions
 in ISCA ITRW ASR2000

Aurora is developing standards for Distributed Speech Recognition (DSR) where the speech analysis is done in the telecommunication terminal and the recognition at a central location in the telecom network. The framework is currently
SelfSimilarity in World Wide Web Traffic: Evidence and Possible Causes
, 1996
"... Recently the notion of selfsimilarity has been shown to apply to widearea and localarea network traffic. In this paper we examine the mechanisms that give rise to the selfsimilarity of network traffic. We present a hypothesized explanation for the possible selfsimilarity of traffic by using a p ..."
