DERIVING A CUBIC TOTAL COST FUNCTION FROM A CUBIC TOTAL COST CURVE
"... The standard treatment of short run cost curves in managerial economics and intermediate microeconomics classes starts with a cubic total cost function, TC(Q) = a + bQ + cQ2 + dQ3 and derives the various perunit cost functions. These functions are then displayed on two graphs – one depicts TC (as ..."

Data cube: A relational aggregation operator generalizing groupby, crosstab, and subtotals
, 1996
"... Abstract. Data analysis applications typically aggregate data across many dimensions looking for anomalies or unusual patterns. The SQL aggregate functions and the GROUP BY operator produce zerodimensional or onedimensional aggregates. Applications need the Ndimensional generalization of these op ..."

How bad is selfish routing?
 JOURNAL OF THE ACM
, 2002
"... We consider the problem of routing traffic to optimize the performance of a congested network. We are given a network, a rate of traffic between each pair of nodes, and a latency function for each edge specifying the time needed to traverse the edge given its congestion; the objective is to route t ..."

its traffic on the minimumlatency path available to it, given the network congestion caused by the other users. In general such a “selfishly motivated ” assignment of traffic to paths will not minimize the total latency; hence, this lack of regulation carries the cost of decreased network performance
Monopolistic competition and optimum product diversity. The American Economic Review,
, 1977
"... The basic issue concerning production in welfare economics is whether a market solution will yield the socially optimum kinds and quantities of commodities. It is well known that problems can arise for three broad reasons: distributive justice; external effects; and scale economies. This paper is c ..."

These lead to results involving transport costs or correlations among commodities or securities, and are hard to interpret in general terms. We therefore take a direct route, noting that the convexity of indifference surfaces of a conventional utility function defined over the quantities of all potential
Multiparty Communication Complexity
, 1989
"... A given Boolean function has its input distributed among many parties. The aim is to determine which parties to tMk to and what information to exchange with each of them in order to evaluate the function while minimizing the total communication. This paper shows that it is possible to obtain the Boo ..."

Learning to rank using gradient descent
 In ICML
, 2005
"... We investigate using gradient descent methods for learning ranking functions; we propose a simple probabilistic cost function, and we introduce RankNet, an implementation of these ideas using a neural network to model the underlying ranking function. We present test results on toy data and on data f ..."

"... Entropy and relative entropy are proposed as features extracted from symbol sequences. Firstly, a proper Iterated Function System is driven by the sequence, producing a fractaMike representation (CSR) with a low computational cost. Then, two entropic measures are applied to the CSR histogram of th ..."

Bundle Adjustment  A Modern Synthesis
 VISION ALGORITHMS: THEORY AND PRACTICE, LNCS
, 2000
"... This paper is a survey of the theory and methods of photogrammetric bundle adjustment, aimed at potential implementors in the computer vision community. Bundle adjustment is the problem of refining a visual reconstruction to produce jointly optimal structure and viewing parameter estimates. Topics c ..."

covered include: the choice of cost function and robustness; numerical optimization including sparse Newton methods, linearly convergent approximations, updating and recursive methods; gauge (datum) invariance; and quality control. The theory is developed for general robust cost functions rather than
EndToEnd Arguments In System Design
, 1984
"... This paper presents a design principle that helps guide placement of functions among the modules of a distributed computer system. The principle, called the endtoend argument, suggests that functions placed at low levels of a system may be redundant or of little value when compared with the cost o ..."

The method relies heavily on the remarkable orthogonality properties of the new libraries. It is obviously a nonlinear transformat ..."

, we can use information cost functionals defined for signals with normalized energy, since all expansions in a given library will conserve energy. Since two expansions will have the same energy globally, it is not necessary to normalize expansions to compare their costs. This feature greatly enlarges
