Maximum likelihood from incomplete data via the EM algorithm
 JOURNAL OF THE ROYAL STATISTICAL SOCIETY, SERIES B
, 1977
"... A broadly applicable algorithm for computing maximum likelihood estimates from incomplete data is presented at various levels of generality. Theory showing the monotone behaviour of the likelihood and convergence of the algorithm is derived. Many examples are sketched, including missing value situat ..."

GromovWitten classes, quantum cohomology, and enumerative geometry
 Commun. Math. Phys
, 1994
"... The paper is devoted to the mathematical aspects of topological quantum field theory and its applications to enumerative problems of algebraic geometry. In particular, it contains an axiomatic treatment of Gromov–Witten classes, and a discussion of their properties for Fano varieties. Cohomological ..."

Field Theories are defined, and it is proved that tree level theories are determined by their correlation functions. Application to counting rational curves on del Pezzo surfaces and projective spaces are given. Let V be a projective algebraic manifold. Methods of quantum field theory recently led to a
Consumers and Their Brands: Developing Relationship Theory
 Journal of consumer research
, 1998
"... Although the relationship metaphor dominates contemporary marketing thought and practice, surprisingly little empirical work has been conducted on relational phenomena in the consumer products domain, particularly at the level of the brand. In this article, the author: (1) argues for the validity of ..."

SCRIBE: A largescale and decentralized applicationlevel multicast infrastructure
 IEEE JOURNAL ON SELECTED AREAS IN COMMUNICATIONS (JSAC
, 2002
"... This paper presents Scribe, a scalable applicationlevel multicast infrastructure. Scribe supports large numbers of groups, with a potentially large number of members per group. Scribe is built on top of Pastry, a generic peertopeer object location and routing substrate overlayed on the Internet, ..."

A Fast Marching Level Set Method for Monotonically Advancing Fronts
 PROC. NAT. ACAD. SCI
, 1995
"... We present a fast marching level set method for monotonically advancing fronts, which leads to an extremely fast scheme for solving the Eikonal equation. Level set methods are numerical techniques for computing the position of propagating fronts. They rely on an initial value partial differential eq ..."

describe a particular case of such methods for interfaces whose speed depends only on local position. The technique works by coupling work on entropy conditions for interface motion, the theory of viscosity solutions for HamiltonJacobi equations and fast adaptive narrow band level set methods
Selfefficacy: Toward a unifying theory of behavioral change
 Psychological Review
, 1977
"... The present article presents an integrative theoretical framework to explain and to predict psychological changes achieved by different modes of treatment. This theory states that psychological procedures, whatever their form, alter the level and strength of selfefficacy. It is hypothesized that ex ..."

Motivation through the Design of Work: Test of a Theory. Organizational Behavior and Human Performance,
, 1976
"... A model is proposed that specifies the conditions under which individuals will become internally motivated to perform effectively on their jobs. The model focuses on the interaction among three classes of variables: (a) the psychological states of employees that must be present for internally motiv ..."

psychologists have for many years studied the antecedents and consequences of heightened and depressed levels of psychological and physiological activation in organisms While activation theory clearly has considerable relevance to both the theory and practice of job design, two thorny problems must be dealt
Mathematical Control Theory: Deterministic Finite Dimensional Systems
 of Texts in Applied Mathematics
, 1990
"... The title of this book gives a very good description of its contents and style, although I might have added “Introduction to ” at the beginning. The style is mathematical: precise, clear statements (i.e., theorems) are asserted, then carefully proved. The book covers many of the key topics in contro ..."

Convolution Kernels on Discrete Structures
, 1999
"... We introduce a new method of constructing kernels on sets whose elements are discrete structures like strings, trees and graphs. The method can be applied iteratively to build a kernel on an infinite set from kernels involving generators of the set. The family of kernels generated generalizes the fa ..."

The geometry of algorithms with orthogonality constraints
 SIAM J. MATRIX ANAL. APPL

"... In this paper we develop new Newton and conjugate gradient algorithms on the Grassmann and Stiefel manifolds. These manifolds represent the constraints that arise in such areas as the symmetric eigenvalue problem, nonlinear eigenvalue problems, electronic structures computations, and signal proces ..."

The theory proposed here provides a taxonomy for numerical linear algebra algorithms that provide a top level mathematical view
