Graphs over Time: Densification Laws, Shrinking Diameters and Possible Explanations
, 2005
"... How do real graphs evolve over time? What are “normal” growth patterns in social, technological, and information networks? Many studies have discovered patterns in static graphs, identifying properties in a single snapshot of a large network, or in a very small number of snapshots; these include hea ..."

increase slowly as a function of the number of nodes (like O(log n) orO(log(log n)). Existing graph generation models do not exhibit these types of behavior, even at a qualitative level. We provide a new graph generator, based on a “forest fire” spreading process, that has a simple, intuitive justification
Anisotropic Magnetoresistance Effect: General Expression of AMR Ratio and Intuitive Explanation for Sign of AMR Ratio
"... Abstract. We derive the general expression of the anisotropic magnetoresistance (AMR) ratio of ferromagnets for a relative angle between the magnetization direction and the current direction. We here use the twocurrent model for a system consisting of a spinpolarized conduction state (s) and loca ..."

) and localized d states (d) with spinorbit interaction. Using the expression, we analyze the AMR ratios of Ni and a halfmetallic ferromagnet. These results correspond well to the respective experimental results. In addition, we give an intuitive explanation about a relation between the sign of the AMR ratio
Deviate Method and Need for Intuitive Explanation 1.1 Practical Need for Uncertainty Propagation
"... Abstract — One of the most efficient techniques for processing interval and fuzzy data is a MonteCarlo type technique of Cauchy deviates that uses Cauchy distributions. This technique is mathematically valid, but somewhat counterintuitive. In this paper, following the ideas of Paul Werbos, we provi ..."
Random Waypoint Considered Harmful
, 2003
"... This study examines the random waypoint model widely used in the simulation studies of mobile ad hoc networks. Our findings show that this model fails to provide a steady state in that the average nodal speed consistently decreases over time, and therefore should not be directly used for simulation. ..."

. We show how unreliable results can be obtained by using this model. In particular, certain ad hoc routing metrics can drop by as much as 40% over the course of a 900second simulation using the random waypoint model. We give both an intuitive and a formal explanation for this phenomenon. We also
A Test of the Efficiency of a Given Portfolio
 In Econometrica
, 1989
"... A test for the ex ante efficiency of a given portfolio of assets is analyzed. The relevant statistic has a tractable small sample distribution. Its power function is derived and used to study the sensitivity of the test to the portfolio choice and to the number of assets used to determine the ex pos ..."

Toward an epistemology of physics
 Cognition and Instruction, 12(2 – 3), 105

The aim of this work is twofold: to understand the intuitive sense of mechanism that accounts for commonsense predictions, expectations, explanations, and judgments of plausibility concerning mechanically causal situations and to understand how those intuitive ideas contribute to and develop into s ..."

It is Also Important to Have an Intuitive Understanding

Surprisingly, in applications, users are often reluctant to accept a rigorously proven statement until the proof is supplemented by its intuitive explanation. In this paper, we show ..."

Procyclical Productivity: Increasing Returns or Cyclical Utilization?
 QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF ECONOMICS
, 1996
"... This paper investigates the relative importance of cyclical fluctuations in labor and capital utilization, increasing returns to scale, and technology shocks as explanations for procyclical productivity. It exploits the intuition that materials inputs do not have variable utilization rates, and mate ..."
