Structural equation modeling in practice: a review and recommended twostep approach.
 Psychological Bulletin,
, 1988
"... In this article, we provide guidance for substantive researchers on the use of structural equation modeling in practice for theory testing and development. We present a comprehensive, twostep modeling approach that employs a series of nested models and sequential chisquare difference tests. We di ..."

discuss the comparative advantages of this approach over a onestep approach. Considerations in specification, assessment of fit, and respecification of measurement models using confirmatory factor analysis are reviewed. As background to the twostep approach, the distinction between exploratory
Survey on Independent Component Analysis
 NEURAL COMPUTING SURVEYS
, 1999
"... A common problem encountered in such disciplines as statistics, data analysis, signal processing, and neural network research, is nding a suitable representation of multivariate data. For computational and conceptual simplicity, such a representation is often sought as a linear transformation of the ..."

of the original data. Wellknown linear transformation methods include, for example, principal component analysis, factor analysis, and projection pursuit. A recently developed linear transformation method is independent component analysis (ICA), in which the desired representation is the one that minimizes
The unity and diversity of executive functions and their contributions to complex “Frontal Lobe” tasks: a latent variable analysis
 COGNIT PSYCHOL
, 2000
"... This individual differences study examined the separability of three often postulated executive functions—mental set shifting ("Shifting"), information updating and monitoring ("Updating"), and inhibition of prepotent responses ("Inhibition")—and their roles in complex ..."

Sorting Test (WCST), Tower of Hanoi (TOH), random number generation (RNG), operation span, and dual tasking. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated that the three target executive functions are moderately correlated with one another, but are clearly separable. Moreover, structural equation modeling
Valuing American options by simulation: A simple leastsquares approach
 Review of Financial Studies
, 2001
"... This article presents a simple yet powerful new approach for approximating the value of America11 options by simulation. The kcy to this approach is the use of least squares to estimate the conditional expected payoff to the optionholder from continuation. This makes this approach readily applicable ..."

These types of derivatives are found in all major financial markets including the equity, commodity, foreign

"... R factor = 0.052; wR factor = 0.114; datatoparameter ratio = 18.4. The title compound, [Zn(C8H10F3O2)2(CH4O)2], is a dimethanol coordinated zinc complex with the acetyl acetonate derivative 1,1,1trifluoro5,5dimethylhexane2,4dionate. The bisdiketonate complex, which is isostructural with its ..."

A distributed, developmental model of word recognition and naming
 PSYCHOLOGICAL REVIEW
, 1989
"... A parallel distributed processing model of visual word recognition and pronunciation is described. The model consists of sets of orthographic and phonological units and an interlevel of hidden units. Weights on connections between units were modified during a training phase using the backpropagatio ..."

Realtime simultaneous localisation and mapping with a single camera
, 2003
"... Egomotion estimation for an agile single camera moving through general, unknown scenes becomes a much more challenging problem when realtime performance is required rather than under the offline processing conditions under which most successful structure from motion work has been achieved. This t ..."

Constructing a coincident index of business cycles without assuming a onefactor model, SMU Economics and Statistics Working Paper 22
, 2004
"... SUMMARY The StockWatson coincident index and its subsequent extensions assume a static linear onefactor structure for the component indicators. Such assumption is restrictive in practice, however, with as few as four indicators. In fact, such assumption is unnecessary if one defines a coincident ..."

The Determinants of Credit Spread Changes.

"... ABSTRACT Using dealer's quotes and transactions prices on straight industrial bonds, we investigate the determinants of credit spread changes. Variables that should in theory determine credit spread changes have rather limited explanatory power. Further, the residuals from this regression are ..."

, Stanton, and Whitelaw (1997), who find that a 3factor model explains over 90 percent of Ginnie Mae yields, but that the remaining variation apparently cannot be explained by the changes in the yield curve. 2 In contrast, our multiplefactor model explains only about onequarter of the variation in credit
