Biased assimilation and attitude polarization: The effects of prior theories on subsequently considered evidence
 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology
, 1979
"... People who hold strong opinions on complex social issues are likely to examine relevant empirical evidence in a biased manner. They are apt to accept "confirming" evidence at face value while subjecting "discontinuing " evidence to critical evaluation, and as a result to draw und ..."

undue support for their initial positions from mixed or random empirical findings. Thus, the result of exposing contending factions in a social dispute to an identical body of relevant empirical evidence may be not a narrowing of disagreement but rather an increase in polarization. To test
Dual polyhedra and mirror symmetry for Calabi–Yau hypersurfaces in toric varieties
 J. Alg. Geom
, 1994
"... We consider families F(∆) consisting of complex (n − 1)dimensional projective algebraic compactifications of ∆regular affine hypersurfaces Zf defined by Laurent polynomials f with a fixed ndimensional Newton polyhedron ∆ in ndimensional algebraic torus T = (C ∗ ) n. If the family F(∆) defined by ..."

by a Newton polyhedron ∆ consists of (n − 1)dimensional CalabiYau varieties then the dual, or polar, polyhedron ∆ ∗ in the dual space defines another family F( ∆ ∗ ) of CalabiYau varieties, so that we obtain the remarkable duality between two different families of CalabiYau varieties. It is shown
The curvelet transform for image denoising
 IEEE TRANS. IMAGE PROCESS
, 2002
"... We describe approximate digital implementations of two new mathematical transforms, namely, the ridgelet transform [2] and the curvelet transform [6], [5]. Our implementations offer exact reconstruction, stability against perturbations, ease of implementation, and low computational complexity. A cen ..."

central tool is Fourierdomain computation of an approximate digital Radon transform. We introduce a very simple interpolation in Fourier space which takes Cartesian samples and yields samples on a rectopolar grid, which is a pseudopolar sampling set based on a concentric squares geometry. Despite
Rotation of Linear Polarization Plane and Circular
, 802
"... Abstract. We show that a time evolving pseudoscalar field coupled to the electromagnetic tensor generates circular polarization and does not only rotate the plane of linear polarization. We compute analytically and numerically the propagation of the Stokes parameters from the last scattering surfac ..."

On the Local Separation of E and B Polarization Patterns in the CMBR
, 2000
"... This work examines the smallscale E and B patterns of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR) polarization anisotropy. Particularly, we address the topological natures and spatial symmetries of the E and B modes, and how one may make use of the local measurements of Stokes parameters to se ..."

The AnnulusFiltered E and B Modes in CMBR Polarization
, 2002
"... submitted to ApJ – 2 – Although it has previously been recognized that the CMB polarization measurement on a sky ring is able to separate the B and Emode patterns, we show that the rotational symmetry of the CMB polarization measurement is indeed unique, in that it enables the B and E modes to be s ..."

1 Signatures of primordial helicity in the CMBR

"... We have studied ways in which helical primordial magnetic fields could be constrained by measurements of the cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR). If there were helical flows in the primordial plasma at the time of recombination, they would produce parity violating temperaturepolarization c ..."
