<p>Machine learning is a powerful branch of mathematics and statistics that allows the automation of tasks that would otherwise require humans a long time to perform. Two particular fields of machine learning that have ...
Over the last decade, the number of underclassmen selected in the first round of the
NBA Draft has dramatically increased. Even when controlling for performance in college,
underclassmen are paid significantly more than ...
The effect of public transportation on commuters’ sensitivity to gas prices is
examined using a proxy for the quality of public transportation. This proxy is
measured as the difference in the individual’s predicted commute ...
The impact of medical malpractice reforms on the cost and quality of health care is of
great interest to policy makers. This study examines national data on malpractice reforms
implemented and health care provided to ...
People like to think of themselves as more honest than the person sitting next to
them. In practice, this cannot always be the case. Through two experiments, we
investigated behavior in golf—a sport of self-governance, ...
<p>Switching networks are a common model for biological systems, especially</p><p>for genetic transcription networks. Stuart Kaufman originally proposed</p><p>the usefulness of the Boolean framework, but much of the ...
<p>We calculate electromagnetic transmission through periodic gratings using a mode-matching method for solving Maxwell's equations. We record the derivation of the equations involved for several variations of the problem, ...
<p>This work deals with the problem of estimating the intrinsic dimension of noisy, high-dimensional point clouds. A general class of sets which are locally well-approximated by <italic>k</italic> dimensional planes but ...
We examine a host-pathogen model in which three types of species exist: empty sites, healthy hosts, and infected hosts. In this model six different transitions can occur: empty sites can be colonized by healthy hosts, ...

This report is an expository article that gathers and proves some of the results of a certain
unpublished paper (F. Chemotti, J. Min´aˇc, and J. Swallow. Galois module structure of square classes of units of Klein ...
<p>Noise-induced stabilization occurs when an unstable deterministic system is stabilized by the addition of white noise. Proving that this phenomenon occurs for a particular system is often manifested through the ...
<p>Gravitational lensing is the study of the bending of light by gravity. In such a scenario, light rays from a background star are deflected as they pass by a foreground galaxy (the lens). If the lens is massive enough, ...
<p>I study differential geometry of 6-manifolds endowed with various $SU(3)$ structures from three perspectives. The first is special Lagrangian geometry; The second is pseudo-Hermitian-Yang-Mills connections or more ...
<p>We consider complete asymptotically flat Riemannian manifolds that are the graphs of smooth functions over $\mathbb R^n$. By recognizing the scalar curvature of such manifolds as a divergence, we express the ADM mass ...
The Durham Center is the public agency in Durham County responsible for connecting
persons who are homeless or at risk of homelessness with the services that they need. In
February of 2008 the Durham Center began to perform ...
This paper applies several jump detection tests to intraday stock price data sampled at various
frequencies. It finds that the choice of sampling frequency has an effect on both the amount
of jumps detected by these tests, ...
This paper investigates how changes in measures of sector and market variance affect equity variance by examining forecasts of equity variance over 1, 5, and 22 day time horizons. These forecasts were generated using ...
New mathematical models are presented for analysis of fluorescence recovery
after photobleaching (FRAP) data to account for the conical geometry of photobleaching,
for spatial variations in binding of fluorescent molecules, ...
