The Determinants of Credit Spread Changes.
 Journal of Finance
, 2001
"... 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 ..."

An identity based encryption scheme based on quadratic residues
 IN IMA INT. CONF
, 2001
"... We present a novel public key cryptosystem in which the public key of a subscriber can be chosen to be a publicly known value, such as his identity. We discuss the security of the proposed scheme, and show that this is related to the difficulty of solving the quadratic residuosity problem. ..."

We present a novel public key cryptosystem in which the public key of a subscriber can be chosen to be a publicly known value, such as his identity. We discuss the security of the proposed scheme, and show that this is related to the difficulty of solving the quadratic residuosity problem.
The Quadratic Eigenvalue Problem
, 2001
"... . We survey the quadratic eigenvalue problem, treating its many applications, its mathematical properties, and a variety of numerical solution techniques. Emphasis is given to exploiting both the structure of the matrices in the problem (dense, sparse, real, complex, Hermitian, skewHermitian) and t ..."

Cryptographic Limitations on Learning Boolean Formulae and Finite Automata
 PROCEEDINGS OF THE TWENTYFIRST ANNUAL ACM SYMPOSIUM ON THEORY OF COMPUTING
, 1989
"... In this paper we prove the intractability of learning several classes of Boolean functions in the distributionfree model (also called the Probably Approximately Correct or PAC model) of learning from examples. These results are representation independent, in that they hold regardless of the syntact ..."

depth threshold circuits would have dramatic consequences for cryptography and number theory: in particular, such an algorithm could be used to break the RSA cryptosystem, factor Blum integers (composite numbers equivalent to 3 modulo 4), and detect quadratic residues. The results hold even if the learning

Not only because it features on the new covers of the Gazette, but publication collections, appraisals and looming ARC application deadlines all require a careful counting of one’s yearly output.

Outdoors, it is due to fossil fuel combustion (diesel and coal), open biomass burning (associated with deforestation and crop residue burning), and cooking with biofuels 1 . Soot aerosols
A new publickey cryptosystem as secure as factoring
 In Eurocrypt '98, LNCS 1403
, 1998
"... Abstract. This paper proposes a novel publickey cryptosystem, which is practical, provably secure and has some other interesting properties as follows: 1. Its trapdoor technique is essentially different from any other previous schemes including RSARabin and DiffieHellman. 2. It is a probabilistic ..."

probabilistic encryption scheme. 3. It can be proven to be as secure as the intractability of factoring n = p 2 q (in the sense of the security of the whole plaintext) against passive adversaries. 4. It is semantically secure under the psubgroup assumption, which is comparable to the quadratic residue
On the LASSO and Its Dual
 Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics
, 1999
"... Proposed by Tibshirani (1996), the LASSO (least absolute shrinkage and selection operator) estimates a vector of regression coe#cients by minimising the residual sum of squares subject to a constraint on the l 1 norm of coe#cient vector. The LASSO estimator typically has one or more zero elements ..."
