between power and centrality and Cook et al.'s recent exceptional results. I propose a family of centrality measures c(a, 3) generated by two parameters, a and P. The parameter P reflects the degree to which an individual's status is a function of the statuses of those to whom he or she
Experimental Estimates of Education Production Functions
 Princeton University, Industrial Relations Section Working Paper No. 379
, 1997
"... This paper analyzes data on 11,600 students and their teachers who were randomly assigned to different size classes from kindergarten through third grade. Statistical methods are used to adjust for nonrandom attrition and transitions between classes. The main conclusions are (1) on average, performa ..."

The ratedistortion function for source coding with side information at the decoder
 IEEE Trans. Inform. Theory

"... AbstractLet {(X,, Y,J}r = 1 be a sequence of independent drawings of a pair of dependent random variables X, Y. Let us say that X takes values in the finite set 6. It is desired to encode the sequence {X,} in blocks of length n into a binary stream*of rate R, which can in turn be decoded as a seque ..."

The special assumption made here is that the decoder has access to the side information {Yk}. In this paper we determine

"... Entropy and relative entropy are proposed as features extracted from symbol sequences. Firstly, a proper Iterated Function System is driven by the sequence, producing a fractaMike representation (CSR) with a low computational cost. Then, two entropic measures are applied to the CSR histogram of th ..."

Learning quickly when irrelevant attributes abound: A new linearthreshold algorithm
 Machine Learning
, 1988
"... learning Boolean functions, linearthreshold algorithms Abstract. Valiant (1984) and others have studied the problem of learning various classes of Boolean functions from examples. Here we discuss incremental learning of these functions. We consider a setting in which the learner responds to each ex ..."

One natural measure of the quality of learning in this setting is the number of mistakes the learner makes. For suitable classes of functions, learning
The Coordination of Arm Movements: An Experimentally Confirmed Mathematical Model
 Journal of neuroscience
, 1985
"... This paper presents studies of the coordination of voluntary human arm movements. A mathematical model is formulated which is shown to predict both the qualitative features and the quantitative details observed experimentally in planar, multijoint arm movements. Coordination is modeled mathematic ..."

The unique trajectory which yields the best performance is determined using dynamic optimization theory. In the work presented here, the objective function is the square of the magnitude of jerk (rate
Finding community structure in networks using the eigenvectors of matrices

Trade Liberalization, Exit, and Productivity Improvements: Evidence from Chilean Plants
 Review of Economic Studies

the late 1970s and early 1980s. Methodologically, I approach this question in two steps. In the first step, I estimate a production function to obtain a measure of plant productivity. I estimate the production function semiparametrically to correct for the presence of selection and simultaneity biases
