A note on concave utility functions 1
, 2004
"... The classical theory of preference among monetary bets represents people as expected utility maximizers with nondecreasing concave utility functions. Critics of this account often rely on assumptions about preferences over wide ranges of total wealth. We derive a prediction of the theory that bears ..."

Fisher Equilibrium Price with a Class of Concave Utility Functions
 IN THE PROCEEDINGS OF ESA 2004
, 2004
"... We study efficient algorithms for computing equilibrium price in the Fisher model for a class of nonlinear concave utility functions, the logarithmic utility functions. A duality relation is derived between buyers and sellers under such utility functions. It is applied to design a polynomial time a ..."

Market equilibrium in exchange economies with some families of concave utility functions
"... We consider the problem of computing equilibrium prices for exchange economies. We tackle this problem under the assumption that the traders have either CES (constant elasticity of substitution) utility functions or a subfamily of ASC (additively separable concave) utilities. For the subfamily of AS ..."

Snakes, Shapes, and Gradient Vector Flow
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON IMAGE PROCESSING
, 1998
"... Snakes, or active contours, are used extensively in computer vision and image processing applications, particularly to locate object boundaries. Problems associated with initialization and poor convergence to boundary concavities, however, have limited their utility. This paper presents a new extern ..."

Cloud Computing and Emerging IT Platforms: Vision, Hype, and Reality for Delivering Computing as the 5th Utility
"... With the significant advances in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) over the last half century, there is an increasingly perceived vision that computing will one day be the 5th utility (after water, electricity, gas, and telephony). This computing utility, like all other four existing u ..."

PseudoRandom Generation from OneWay Functions
 PROC. 20TH STOC
, 1988
"... Pseudorandom generators are fundamental to many theoretical and applied aspects of computing. We show howto construct a pseudorandom generator from any oneway function. Since it is easy to construct a oneway function from a pseudorandom generator, this result shows that there is a pseudorandom gene ..."

Graphbased algorithms for Boolean function manipulation
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMPUTERS
, 1986
"... In this paper we present a new data structure for representing Boolean functions and an associated set of manipulation algorithms. Functions are represented by directed, acyclic graphs in a manner similar to the representations introduced by Lee [1] and Akers [2], but with further restrictions on th ..."
