Truth Is Beauty: Researching Embodied Conversational Agents
 In
, 2000
"... G. H. Hardy (1941) argues that the sole criterion for excellent research is that the researcher produces “beauty. ” While seemingly ineffable and frustratingly imprecise, Hardy instead suggests that creating beauty is straightforward. First, the work must be accurate: erroneous results are useless. ..."

. Second, one’s peers must recognize the work to be interesting, exciting, elegant, and “cool. ” While this second criterion might seem arbitrary, there is generally good agreement between scholars in a given community about “interesting ” work (see Cole and Cole 1973 for a discussion), so one need
Jost function for coupled channels ∗
, 1998
"... Almost any textbook on the scattering theory has a chapter devoted to the Jost function, but none of them gives a practical recipe for its calculation. Thus one usually gets a feeling that the Jost function is a pure mathematical object, elegant and useful in formal theory, but impractical in comput ..."

Planning for WeaklyCoupled Partially Observable Stochastic Games
"... Partially observable stochastic games (POSGs) provide a powerful framework for modeling multiagent interactions. While elegant and expressive, the framework has been shown to be computationally intractable [Bernstein et al., 2002]. An ..."

Orientifolds of K3 and CalabiYau manifolds with intersecting Dbranes
 JHEP
"... We investigate orientifolds of type II string theory on K3 and CalabiYau 3folds with intersecting Dbranes wrapping special Lagrangian cycles. We determine quite generically the chiral massless spectrum in terms of topological invariants and discuss both orbifold examples and algebraic realization ..."

realizations in detail. Intriguingly, the developed techniques provide an elegant way to figure out the chiral sector of orientifold models without computing any explicit string partition function. As a new example we derive a nonsupersymmetric Standardlike Model from an orientifold of type IIA
WAVES IN NONLOCALLY COUPLED OSCILLATORS
, 2006
"... We explore the dynamics of phase oscillators with nonlocal coupling. The relationship between nonlocal coupling and longterm solutions of the system ∂t φ(x, t) = ω + ∫ pi −pi G(x − y)Γ[φ(x, t) − φ(y, t)]dy (1) is thoroughly explored. Here φ(x, t) is the phase of oscillator x at time t. The index v ..."

Strongly Coupled Inversion of Rayleigh Dispersion and Attenuation Curves
"... Summary This memoir illustrates an elegant technique for the solution of the Rayleigh inverse problem in arbitrarily dissipative, linear viscoelastic media. The technique is based on using the holomorphic properties of Rayleigh phase velocity viewed as an analytic mapping of the speed of propagatio ..."

Delayed path coupling and generating random permutations via distributed stochastic processes
, 1999
"... We analyze various stochastic processes for generating permutations almost uniformly at random in distributed and parallel systems. All our protocols are simple, elegant and are based on performing disjoint transpositions executed in parallel. The challenging problem of our concern is to prove that ..."

four dimensional supergravity coupled to matter
, 2001

Abstract: We analyze the constraints which follow both on the geometry and on the gauge sector for a consistent supergravity reduction of a general matter–coupled N = 2 supergravity theory in four dimensions. These constraints can be derived in an elegant way by looking at the fermionic sector of th ..."

DESIGNING PULSE COUPLED OSCILLATORS TO SYNCHRONIZE
, 2013
"... Oscillators exhibit some of the simplest dynamic behavior, yet systems of interacting oscillators are capable of intricate and complex behaviors. It is partly this elegance that has made them a frequent object of study, but also their ubiquity. In particular, pulse coupled oscillators (PCOs), where ..."
