Illusion and wellbeing: A social psychological perspective on mental health.
 Psychological Bulletin,
, 1988
"... Many prominent theorists have argued that accurate perceptions of the self, the world, and the future are essential for mental health. Yet considerable research evidence suggests that overly positive selfevaluations, exaggerated perceptions of control or mastery, and unrealistic optimism are charac ..."

are characteristic of normal human thought. Moreover, these illusions appear to promote other criteria of mental health, including the ability to care about others, the ability to be happy or contented, and the ability to engage in productive and creative work. These strategies may succeed, in large part, because
Turbulence statistics in fully developed channel flow at low Reynolds number
 J. Fluid Mech
, 1987
"... A direct numerical simulation of a turbulent channel flow is performed. The unsteady NavierStokes equations are solved numerically at a Reynolds number of 3300, based on thc mean centreline velocity and channel halfwidth, with about 4 x los grid points (192 x 129 x 160 in 2, y, 2). All essential t ..."

turbulence scales are resolved on the computational grid and no subgrid model is used. A large number of turbulence statistics are computed and compared with the existing experimental data at comparable Reynolds numbers. Agreements as well as discrepancies are discussed in detail. Particular attention
QuasiRandom Sequences and Their Discrepancies
 SIAM J. Sci. Comput
, 1994
"... Quasirandom (also called low discrepancy) sequences are a deterministic alternative to random sequences for use in Monte Carlo methods, such as integration and particle simulations of transport processes. The error in uniformity for such a sequence of N points in the sdimensional unit cube is meas ..."

is measured by its discrepancy, which is of size (log N) s N \Gamma1 for large N , as opposed to discrepancy of size (log log N) 1=2 N \Gamma1=2 for a random sequence (i.e. for almost any randomlychosen sequence). Several types of discrepancy, one of which is new, are defined and analyzed. A critical
Depthbounded Discrepancy Search
 In Proceedings of IJCAI97
, 1997
"... Many search trees are impractically large to explore exhaustively. Recently, techniques like limited discrepancy search have been proposed for improving the chance of finding a goal in a limited amount of search. Depthbounded discrepancy search offers such a hope. The motivation behind depthbounde ..."

Geography and economic development
 World Bank, Washington DC

"... Location and climate have large effects on income levels and income growth through their effects on transport costs, disease burdens, and agricultural productivity, among other channels. Geography also seems to affect economic policy choices. Many geographic regions that have not been conducive to ..."

Impact of Radio Irregularity on Wireless Sensor Networks
 in MobiSYS ’04: Proceedings of the 2nd international conference on Mobile systems, applications, and services
, 2004
"... In this paper, we investigate the impact of radio irregularity on the communication performance in wireless sensor networks. Radio irregularity is a common phenomenon which arises from multiple factors, such as variance in RF sending power and different path losses depending on the direction of prop ..."

With empirical data obtained from the MICA2 platform, we establish a radio model for simulation, called the Radio
Discrepancies and Applications

ON THE EXPONENT OF DISCREPANCIES
, 2009
"... We study various discrepancies with arbitrary weights in the L2 norm over domains whose dimension is proportional to d. We are mostly interested in large d. The exponent p of discrepancy is defined as the smallest number for which there exists a positive number C such that for all d and ε there ex ..."

Compiler Optimizations for Improving Data Locality
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE SIXTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARCHITECTURAL SUPPORT FOR PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES AND OPERATING SYSTEMS
, 1994
"... In the past decade, processor speed has become significantly faster than memory speed. Small, fast cache memories are designed to overcome this discrepancy, but they are only effective when programs exhibit data locality. In this paper, we present compiler optimizations to improve data locality base ..."

Discrepancy of products of hypergraphs
 theory and applications (EuroComb ’05). Extended abstracts from the conference, Technische Universität
, 2005
"... For a hypergraph H = (V, E), its d–fold symmetric product is ∆ d H = (V d, {E d E ∈ E}). We give several upper and lower bounds for the ccolor discrepancy of such products. In particular, we show that the bound disc( ∆ d H, 2) ≤ disc(H, 2) proven for all d in [B. Doerr, A. Srivastav, and P. Wehr, ..."

In fact, for any c and d such that c does not divide d!, there are hypergraphs having arbitrary large discrepancy and disc( ∆ d H, c) = Ωd
