Greedy Randomized Adaptive Search Procedures
, 2002
"... GRASP is a multistart metaheuristic for combinatorial problems, in which each iteration consists basically of two phases: construction and local search. The construction phase builds a feasible solution, whose neighborhood is investigated until a local minimum is found during the local search phas ..."

solution construction mechanisms and techniques to speed up the search are also described: Reactive GRASP, cost perturbations, bias functions, memory and learning, local search on partially constructed solutions, hashing, and filtering. We also discuss in detail implementation strategies of memory
Locally weighted learning
 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE REVIEW
, 1997
"... This paper surveys locally weighted learning, a form of lazy learning and memorybased learning, and focuses on locally weighted linear regression. The survey discusses distance functions, smoothing parameters, weighting functions, local model structures, regularization of the estimates and bias, ass ..."

Investor psychology and security market under and overreactions
 Journal of Finance
, 1998
"... We propose a theory of securities market under and overreactions based on two wellknown psychological biases: investor overconfidence about the precision of private information; and biased selfattribution, which causes asymmetric shifts in investors ’ confidence as a function of their investment ..."

Variable Selection via Nonconcave Penalized Likelihood and its Oracle Properties
, 2001
"... Variable selection is fundamental to highdimensional statistical modeling, including nonparametric regression. Many approaches in use are stepwise selection procedures, which can be computationally expensive and ignore stochastic errors in the variable selection process. In this article, penalized ..."

functions are symmetric, nonconcave on (0, ∞), and have singularities at the origin to produce sparse solutions. Furthermore, the penalty functions should be bounded by a constant to reduce bias and satisfy certain conditions to yield continuous solutions. A new algorithm is proposed for optimizing
Trade Liberalization, Exit, and Productivity Improvements: Evidence from Chilean Plants
 Review of Economic Studies
, 2002
"... This paper empirically investigates the effects of liberalized trade on plant productivity in the case of Chile. Chile presents an interesting setting to study this relationship since it underwent a massive trade liberalization that significantly exposed its plants to competition from abroad during ..."

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
A closedform solution for options with stochastic volatility with applications to bond and currency options
 Review of Financial Studies
, 1993
"... I use a new technique to derive a closedform solution for the price of a European call option on an asset with stochastic volatility. The model allows arbitrary correlation between volatility and spotasset returns. I introduce stochastic interest rates and show how to apply the model to bond option ..."

options and foreign currency options. Simulations show that correlation between volatility and the spot asset’s price is important for explaining return skewness and strikeprice biases in the BlackScholes (1973) model. The solution technique is based on characteristic functions and can be applied
Random Early Detection Gateways for Congestion Avoidance
 IEEE/ACM TRANSACTIONS ON NETWORKING
, 1993
"... This paper presents Random Early Detection (RED) gateways for congestion avoidance in packetswitched networks. The gateway detects incipient congestion by computing the average queue size. The gateway could notify connections of congestion either by dropping packets arriving at the gateway or by ..."

or by setting a bit in packet headers. When the average queue size exceeds a preset threshold,the gateway drops or marks each arriving packet with a certain probability, where the exact probability is a function of the average queue size. RED gateways keep the average queue size low while allowing occasional
Semantics of ContextFree Languages
 In Mathematical Systems Theory
, 1968
"... "Meaning " may be assigned to a string in a contextfree language by defining "attributes " of the symbols in a derivation tree for that string. The attributes can be defined by functions associated with each production in the grammar. This paper examines the implications of th ..."

Efficient Estimation of Average Treatment Effects Using the Estimated Propensity Score

"... We are interested in estimating the average effect of a binary treatment on a scalar outcome. If assignment to the treatment is independent of the potential outcomes given pretreatment variables, biases associated with simple treatmentcontrol average comparisons can be removed by adjusting for diff ..."
