Selection and Historical Height Data: Evidence from the 1892 Boas Sample of the Cherokee Nation
Economists have increasingly turned to height data to gain insight into a population’s standard of living. Because height measures are used when other data is unavailable, testing their reliability can be difficult, and ...
Experimentally engineering the edge termination of graphene nanoribbons.
The edges of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) have attracted much interest due to their potentially strong influence on GNR electronic and magnetic properties. Here we report the ability to engineer the microscopic edge termination ...
NONLINEAR PARAMETRIC INVERSION USING INTERPOLATORY MODEL REDUCTION
(Siam Publications, 2015-01-01)
What does the yield curve tell us about exchange rate predictability?
(MIT Press, 2013-03)
Since the term structure of interest rates embodies information about future economic activity, we extract relative Nelson-Siegel (1987) factors from cross-country yield curve differences to proxy expected movements in ...
(Elsevier Inc., 2013)
Environmental stress is an action, agent, or condition that impairs the structure or function of a biological system. This environmental stress can be natural, like hurricanes, droughts, floods and fires for example, or ...
Going Beyond the Tipping Points
(Science and Society, 2010)
Tipping points may be passed when all appears well, and the changes that follow are likely to be swift and irreversible. A frequent analogy to passing tipping points is of passengers in an automobile driving rapidly through ...
Global Crisis Collaboration: The Key to the Survival of Civilization in the 2st Century
(Asian Journal of Experimental Sciences, 2010)
In the 21st century, civilization is threatened by multiple, interactive crises, any one of which could, in a worst case scenario, cause a huge reduction of population size and even human extinction. In short, both the ...
