Back to Bentham? Explorations of Experienced Utility
 QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS
, 1997
"... Two core meanings of “utility” are distinguished. “Decision utility” is the weight of an outcome in a decision. “Experienced utility” is hedonic quality, as in Bentham’s usage. Experienced utility can be reported in real time (instant utility), or in retrospective evaluations of past episodes (remem ..."

Simple fast algorithms for the editing distance between trees and related problems
 SIAM J. COMPUT
, 1989
"... Ordered labeled trees are trees in which the lefttoright order among siblings is. significant. The distance between two ordered trees is considered to be the weighted number of edit operations (insert, delete, and modify) to transform one tree to another. The problem of approximate tree matching i ..."

Estimation and Inference in Large Heterogeneous Panels with a Multifactor Error Structure
, 2004
"... This paper presents a new approach to estimation and inference in panel data models with a multifactor error structure where the unobserved common factors are (possibly) correlated with exogenously given individualspecific regressors, and the factor loadings differ over the cross section units. The ..."

. The basic idea behind the proposed estimation procedure is to filter the individualspecific regressors by means of (weighted) crosssection aggregates such that asymptotically as the crosssection dimension ( N) tends to infinity the differential effects of unobserved common factors are eliminated
Sojourn times in Markov processes
 Journal of Applied Probability
, 1989
"... In a homogeneous finitestate Markov process, we consider the occupation times, that is, the times spent by the process in given subsets of the state space during a finite interval of time. We first derive the distribution of the occupation time of one subset and then we generalize that result to th ..."

to the joint distribution of occupation times of different subsets of the state space by the use of order statistics from the uniform distribution. Next, we consider the distribution of weighted sums of occupation times. We obtain forward and backward equations describing the behavior of these weighted sums
Developments in the Measurement of Subjective WellBeing
 Psychological Science.
, 1993
"... F or good reasons, economists have had a longstanding preference for studying peoples' revealed preferences; that is, looking at individuals' actual choices and decisions rather than their stated intentions or subjective reports of likes and dislikes. Yet people often make choices that b ..."

We conclude by proposing the Uindex, a misery index of sorts, which measures the proportion of time that people spend in an unpleasant state, and has the virtue
The price of stability for network design with fair cost allocation
 In Proceedings of the 45th Annual Symposium on Foundations of Computer Science (FOCS
, 2004
"... Abstract. Network design is a fundamental problem for which it is important to understand the effects of strategic behavior. Given a collection of selfinterested agents who want to form a network connecting certain endpoints, the set of stable solutions — the Nash equilibria — may look quite differ ..."

different from the centrally enforced optimum. We study the quality of the best Nash equilibrium, and refer to the ratio of its cost to the optimum network cost as the price of stability. The best Nash equilibrium solution has a natural meaning of stability in this context — it is the optimal solution
Quantiles of sojourn times
, 2004
"... Fast response times and the satisfaction of response time quantile targets are important performance criteria for almost all transaction processing and computercommunication systems. However, they tend to be difficult to obtain in stochastic models, even when the mean value of the response time has ..."

A Proportional Share Resource Allocation Algorithm For RealTime, TimeShared Systems
, 1996
"... We propose and analyze a proportional share resource allocation algorithm for realizing realtime performance in timeshared operating systems. In a proportional share system, processes are assigned a weight which determines a share (percentage) of the resource they are to receive. The resource is t ..."

Optimal load balancing in processor sharing systems
 In Proc. of GameComm
, 2008

We investigate optimal load balancing strategies for a multiclass multiserver processorsharing system with a Poisson input stream, heterogeneous service rates, and a serverdependent holding cost per unit time. Specifically, we study (i) the centralized setting in which a dispatcher routes incomi ..."
