Approximation Algorithms for Projective Clustering
 Proceedings of the ACM SIGMOD International Conference on Management of data, Philadelphia
, 2000
"... We consider the following two instances of the projective clustering problem: Given a set S of n points in R d and an integer k ? 0; cover S by k hyperstrips (resp. hypercylinders) so that the maximum width of a hyperstrip (resp., the maximum diameter of a hypercylinder) is minimized. Let w ..."

It is NPHard to compute k planar strips of width even at most Cw ; for any constant C ? 0 [50]. This paper contains four main

Model evaluation guidelines for systematic quantification of accuracy in watershed simulations
, 2007
"... Watershed models are powerful tools for simulating the effect of watershed processes and management on soil and water resources. However, no comprehensive guidance is available to facilitate model evaluation in terms of the accuracy of simulated data compared to measured flow and constituent values ..."

Selfdetermination and persistence in a reallife setting: Toward a motivational model of high school dropout.
 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology,
, 1997
"... The purpose of this study was to propose and test a motivational model of high school dropout. The model posits that teachers, parents, and the school administration's behaviors toward students influence students' perceptions of competence and autonomy. The less autonomy supportive the so ..."

Results from analyses of variance and a structural equation modeling analysis (with L1SREL) were found
Multidimensional range queries in sensor networks
 in Proc. of the 1st international conference on Embedded networked sensor systems, SenSys
"... In many sensor networks, data or events are named by attributes. Many of these attributes have scalar values, so one natural way to query events of interest is to use a multidimensional range query. An example is: “List all events whose temperature lies between 50 ◦ and 60 ◦ , and whose light levels ..."

An improved algorithm for computing the singular value decomposition
 ACM Trans. Math. Software

"... The most wellknown and widely used algorithm for computing the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) A U ~V T of an m x n rectangular matrix A is the GolubReinsch algorithm (GRSVD). In this paper, an improved version of the original GRSVD algorithm is presented. The new algorithm works best for ..."

N=82 shell quenching below 132 50Sn50

Within this framework, the successful reproduction of the global isotopic abundances (Nr,⊙) aswellas remaining deficiencies have been interpreted by our group as signatures ..."

of nuclear structure near the neutron dripline [1]. Pronounced abundance troughs prior to the Nr,⊙ peaks at A≃130 and 195, respectively, have their origin in an overestimation of the N=82 and 126 shell strength in global mass models such as FRDM and ETFSI1.

The number of independent sets in the grid graph
 SIAM J. Discrete Math
, 1998
"... Abstract. If f(m,n) is the (vertex) independence number of the m × n grid graph, then we show that the double limit η = def limm,n→ ∞ f(m,n) 1 mn exists, thereby refining earlier results of Weber [2] and Engel [1]. We establish upper and lower bounds for η, and prove that 1.503047782... ≤ η ≤ 1.5035 ..."
