Smooth minimization of nonsmooth functions
 Math. Programming
, 2005
"... In this paper we propose a new approach for constructing efficient schemes for nonsmooth convex optimization. It is based on a special smoothing technique, which can be applied to the functions with explicit maxstructure. Our approach can be considered as an alternative to blackbox minimization. F ..."

Greedy Function Approximation: A Gradient Boosting Machine
 Annals of Statistics
, 2000
"... Function approximation is viewed from the perspective of numerical optimization in function space, rather than parameter space. A connection is made between stagewise additive expansions and steepest{descent minimization. A general gradient{descent \boosting" paradigm is developed for additi ..."

Specic algorithms are presented for least{squares, least{absolute{deviation, and Huber{M loss functions for regression, and multi{class logistic likelihood for classication. Special enhancements are derived for the particular case where the individual
Reconstruction and Representation of 3D Objects with Radial Basis Functions
 Computer Graphics (SIGGRAPH ’01 Conf. Proc.), pages 67–76. ACM SIGGRAPH
, 2001
"... We use polyharmonic Radial Basis Functions (RBFs) to reconstruct smooth, manifold surfaces from pointcloud data and to repair incomplete meshes. An object's surface is defined implicitly as the zero set of an RBF fitted to the given surface data. Fast methods for fitting and evaluating RBFs al ..."

LexicalFunctional Grammar: A Formal System for Grammatical Representation
 IN: FORMAL ISSUES IN LEXICALFUNCTIONAL GRAMMAR
, 1995
"... In learning their native language, children develop a remarkable set of capabilities. They acquire knowledge and skills that enable them to produce and comprehend an indefinite number of novel utterances, and to make quite subtle judgments about certain of their properties. The major goal of psychol ..."

The ratedistortion function for source coding with side information at the decoder
 IEEE Trans. Inform. Theory
, 1976
"... AbstractLet {(X,, Y,J}r = 1 be a sequence of independent drawings of a pair of dependent random variables X, Y. Let us say that X takes values in the finite set 6. It is desired to encode the sequence {X,} in blocks of length n into a binary stream*of rate R, which can in turn be decoded as a seque ..."

The special assumption made here is that the decoder has access to the side information {Yk}. In this paper we determine
The genetical evolution of social behaviour
 I. J. Theor. Biol.
, 1964
"... A genetical mathematical model is described which allows for interactions between relatives on one another's fitness. Making use of Wright's Coefficient of Relationship as the measure of the proportion of replica genes in a relative, a quantity is found which incorporates the maximizing p ..."

Articulated body motion capture by annealed particle filtering
 In IEEE Conf. on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
, 2000
"... The main challenge in articulated body motion tracking is the large number of degrees of freedom (around 30) to be recovered. Search algorithms, either deterministic or stochastic, that search such a space without constraint, fall foul of exponential computational complexity. One approach is to intr ..."

Specification Analysis of Affine Term Structure Models
 JOURNAL OF FINANCE
, 2000
"... This paper explores the structural differences and relative goodnessoffits of affine term structure models (ATSMs55). Within the family of ATSMs there is a tradeoff between flexibility in modeling the conditional correlations and volatilities of the risk factors. This tradeoff is formalized by ou ..."

Separation of ownership and control
 JOURNAL OF LAW AND ECONOMICS
, 1983
"... This paper analyzes the survival of organizations in which decision agents do not bear a major share of the wealth effects of their decisions. This is what the literature on large corporations calls separation of âownershipâ and âcontrol.â Such separation of decision and risk bearing functio ..."

We contend that separation of decision and risk bearing functions survives in these organizations in part because of the benefits of specialization of management and risk bearing but also
