Adolescencelimited and lifecoursepersistent antisocial behavior: Adevelopmental taxonomy
 Psychological Review
, 1993
"... A dual taxonomy is presented to reconcile 2 incongruous facts about antisocial behavior: (a) It shows impressive continuity over age, but (b) its prevalence changes dramatically over age, increasing almost 10fold temporarily during adolescence. This article suggests that delinquency conceals 2 dist ..."

, children's neuropsychological problems interact cumulatively with their criminogenic environments across development, culminating in a pathological personality. According to the theory of adolescencelimited antisocial behavior, a contemporary maturity gap encourages teens to mimic antisocial behavior
Near Shannon limit errorcorrecting coding and decoding
, 1993
"... Abstract This paper deals with a new class of convolutional codes called Turbocodes, whose performances in terms of Bit Error Rate (BER) are close to the SHANNON limit. The TurboCode encoder is built using a parallel concatenation of two Recursive Systematic Convolutional codes and the associated ..."

The large N limit of superconformal field theories and supergravity
, 1998
"... We show that the large N limit of certain conformal field theories in various dimensions include in their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravity on the product of AntideSitter spacetimes, spheres and other compact manifolds. This is shown by taking some branes in the full M/string theory and ..."

Better Schools Matter? Parental Valuation of Elementary Education,” Quarterly
 Journal of Economics
, 1999
"... The evaluation of numerous school reforms requires an understanding of the value of better schools. Given the difficulty of calculating the relationship between school quality and student outcomes, I turn to another method and use house prices to infer the value parents place on school quality. I lo ..."

look within school districts at houses located on attendance district boundaries; houses then differ only by the elementary school the child attends. I thereby effectively remove the variation in neighborhoods, taxes, and school spending. I �nd that parents are willing to pay 2.5 percent more for a 5
Factoring wavelet transforms into lifting steps
 J. Fourier Anal. Appl
, 1998
"... ABSTRACT. This paper is essentially tutorial in nature. We show how any discrete wavelet transform or two band subband filtering with finite filters can be decomposed into a finite sequence of simple filtering steps, which we call lifting steps but that are also known as ladder structures. This dec ..."

. This decomposition corresponds to a factorization of the polyphase matrix of the wavelet or subband filters into elementary matrices. That such a factorization is possible is wellknown to algebraists (and expressed by the formula); it is also used in linear systems theory in the electrical engineering community. We
N Degrees of Separation: MultiDimensional Separation of Concerns
 IN PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON SOFTWARE ENGINEERING
, 1999
"... Done well, separation of concerns can provide many software engineering benefits, including reduced complexity, improved reusability, and simpler evolution. The choice of boundaries for separate concerns depends on both requirements on the system and on the kind(s) of decompositionand composition a ..."

given formalism supports. The predominant methodologies and formalisms available, however, support only orthogonal separations of concerns, along single dimensions of composition and decomposition. These characteristics lead to a number of wellknown and difficult problems. This paper describes a new
A Critical Point For Random Graphs With A Given Degree Sequence
, 2000
"... Given a sequence of nonnegative real numbers 0 ; 1 ; : : : which sum to 1, we consider random graphs having approximately i n vertices of degree i. Essentially, we show that if P i(i \Gamma 2) i ? 0 then such graphs almost surely have a giant component, while if P i(i \Gamma 2) i ! 0 the ..."

then almost surely all components in such graphs are small. We can apply these results to G n;p ; G n;M , and other wellknown models of random graphs. There are also applications related to the chromatic number of sparse random graphs.
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 ..."

A recently developed linear transformation method is independent component analysis (ICA), in which the desired representation is the one that minimizes
The Symbol Grounding Problem
