A new scale of social desirability independent of psychopathology
 Journal of Consulting Psychology
, 1960
"... It has long been recognized that personality test scores are influenced by nontestrelevant response determinants. Wiggins and Rumrill (1959) distinguish three approaches to this problem. Briefly, interest in the problem of response distortion has been concerned with attempts at statistical correct ..."

correction for "faking good " or "faking bad " (Meehl & Hathaway, 1946), the analysis of response sets (Cronbach, 1946,1950), and ratings of the social desirability of personality test items (Edwards, 19 5 7). A further distinction can be made, however, which results in a somewhat
The knowledge complexity of interactive proof systems

, 1989
"... Usually, a proof of a theorem contains more knowledge than the mere fact that the theorem is true. For instance, to prove that a graph is Hamiltonian it suffices to exhibit a Hamiltonian tour in it; however, this seems to contain more knowledge than the single bit Hamiltonian/nonHamiltonian. In th ..."

/nonHamiltonian. In this paper a computational complexity theory of the "knowledge " contained in a proof is developed. Zeroknowledge proofs are defined as those proofs that convey no additional knowledge other than the correctness of the proposition in question. Examples of zeroknowledge proof systems are given
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
Stacked generalization
 NEURAL NETWORKS
, 1992
"... This paper introduces stacked generalization, a scheme for minimizing the generalization error rate of one or more generalizers. Stacked generalization works by deducing the biases of the generalizer(s) with respect to a provided learning set. This deduction proceeds by generalizing in a second sp ..."

Loopy belief propagation for approximate inference: An empirical study. In:
 Proceedings of Uncertainty in AI,
, 1999
"... Abstract Recently, researchers have demonstrated that "loopy belief propagation" the use of Pearl's polytree algorithm in a Bayesian network with loops can perform well in the context of errorcorrecting codes. The most dramatic instance of this is the near Shannonlimit performanc ..."

Support Vector Machine Classification and Validation of Cancer Tissue Samples Using Microarray Expression Data
, 2000
"... Motivation: DNA microarray experiments generating thousands of gene expression measurements, are being used to gather information from tissue and cell samples regarding gene expression differences that will be useful in diagnosing disease. We have developed a new method to analyse this kind of data ..."

Results: We demonstrate the method in detail on samples consisting of ovarian cancer tissues, normal ovarian tissues
Eliciting selfexplanations improves understanding
 Cognitive Science
, 1994
"... Learning involves the integration of new information into existing knowledge. Generoting explanations to oneself (selfexplaining) facilitates that integration process. Previously, selfexplanation has been shown to improve the acquisition of problemsolving skills when studying workedout examples. ..."

Understanding was assessed by answering very complex questions and inducing the function of a component when it was only
Genomic control for association studies
, 1999

An outstanding question is how to use these technologies efficiently to identify genes affecting liability to complex disorders. ..."

Property Testing and its connection to Learning and Approximation

A property testing algorithm is given a sample of the value of the function on instances drawn according to some distribution, and possibly may query the fun ..."

PROBLEMS AND RESULTS ON 3CHROMATIC HYPERGRAPHS AND SOME RELATED QUESTIONS
 COLLOQUIA MATHEMATICA SOCIETATIS JANOS BOLYAI 10. INFINITE AND FINITE SETS, KESZTHELY (HUNGARY)

"... A hypergraph is a collection of sets. This paper deals with finite hypergraphs only. The sets in the hypergraph are called edges, the elements of these edges are points. The degree of a point is the number of edges containing it. The hypergraph is runiform if every edge has r points. A hypergraph i ..."
