Graph Minors: Important First Steps and Generalizing Kuratowski's Theorem
, 2002
"... The Graph Minors Project of Neil Robertson and Paul Seymour proves that if fG1; G2; : ::g is an infinite set of graphs, then there exist i and j such that Gi is a minor of Gj. In particular, if \Sigma is a surface, the set F (\Sigma) of graphs G that do not embed in \Sigma but every proper minor of ..."

The Graph Minors Project of Neil Robertson and Paul Seymour proves that if fG1; G2; : ::g is an infinite set of graphs, then there exist i and j such that Gi is a minor of Gj. In particular, if \Sigma is a surface, the set F (\Sigma) of graphs G that do not embed in \Sigma but every proper minor of which does embed in \Sigma must be finite.
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
Theory of Elasticity,
, 1951
"... ABSTRACT The knowledge of the insitu stress field in rock masses is in general of crucial importance in various areas of geoengineering, such as mining or civil underground excavations, hydrocarbon extraction, CO2 storage, hydraulic fracture operations, etc. In the context of the Finite Element ..."

Method, the insitu stress conditions should be incorporated in the analysis following the generation of the FE mesh and prior to the consideration of the actions due to the engineering design The method described in this paper involves basically two steps. In the first one a first estimate
Edge Detection
, 1985
"... For both biological systems and machines, vision begins with a large and unwieldy array of measurements of the amount of light reflected from surfaces in the environment. The goal of vision is to recover physical properties of objects in the scene, such as the location of object boundaries and the s ..."

and the structure, color and texture of object surfaces, from the twodimensional image that is projected onto the eye or camera. This goal is not achieved in a single step; vision proceeds in stages, with each stage producing increasingly more useful descriptions of the image and then the scene. The first clue
A Singular Value Thresholding Algorithm for Matrix Completion
, 2008
"... This paper introduces a novel algorithm to approximate the matrix with minimum nuclear norm among all matrices obeying a set of convex constraints. This problem may be understood as the convex relaxation of a rank minimization problem, and arises in many important applications as in the task of reco ..."

Basecalling of automated sequencer traces using phred. I. Accuracy Assessment
 GENOME RES
, 1998
"... The availability of massive amounts of DNA sequence information has begun to revolutionize the practice of biology. As a result, current largescale sequencing output, while impressive, is not adequate to keep pace with growing demand and, in particular, is far short of what will be required to obta ..."

to obtain the 3billionbase human genome sequence by the target date of 2005. To reach this goal, improved automation will be essential, and it is particularly important that human involvement in sequence data processing be significantly reduced or eliminated. Progress in this respect will require both
Stable Fluids

"... Building animation tools for fluidlike motions is an important and challenging problem with many applications in computer graphics. The use of physicsbased models for fluid flow can greatly assist in creating such tools. Physical models, unlike key frame or procedural based techniques, permit an a ..."

Semantic matching of web services capabilities
, 2002
"... Abstract. The Web is moving from being a collection of pages toward a collection of services that interoperate through the Internet. The first step toward this interoperation is the location of other services that can help toward the solution of a problem. In this paper we claim that location of web ..."

Analysis and Simulation of a Fair Queueing Algorithm
, 1989
"... We discuss gateway queueing algorithms and their role in controlling congestion in datagram networks. A fair queueing algorithm, based on an earlier suggestion by Nagle, is proposed. Analysis and simulations are used to compare this algorithm to other congestion control schemes. We find. that fair q ..."

queueing provides several important advantages over the usual firstcomefirstserve queueing algorithm: fair allocation of bandwidth, lower delay for sources using less than their full share of bandwidth, and protection from illbehaved sources.
