  • The noise-lovers: cultures of speech and sound in second-century Rome 

    Uden, James (Cambridge University Press, 2020-06)
    This chapter provides an examination of an ideal of the ‘deliberate speaker’, who aims to reflect time, thought, and study in his speech. In the Roman Empire, words became a vital tool for creating and defending in-groups, ...
  • Decomposing changes in the distribution of real hourly wages in the U.S. 

    Fernandez-Val, Ivan; Peracchi, Franco; van Vuuren, Aico; Vella, Francis (Institute for Fiscal Studies, 2019-11-18)
    We analyze the sources of changes in the distribution of hourly wages in the United States using CPS data for the survey years 1976 to 2016. We account for the selection bias from the employment decision by modeling the ...
  • Detecting signals of weakly first-order phase transitions in two-dimensional Potts models 

    Iino, Shumpei; Morita, Satoshi; Kawashima, Naoki; Sandvik, Anders W. (The Physical Society of Japan, 2019-03-01)
    We investigate the first-order phase transitions of the q-state Potts models with q = 5, 6, 7, and 8 on the two- dimensional square lattice, using Monte Carlo simulations. At the very weakly first-order transition of the ...
  • A conversation with Albert Ma 

    Ma, Albert (World Scientific, 2020-05-05)
    Can you describe your field briefly? I am an applied microeconomist, and my research is on health economics and industrial organisation. My main interest is in the health market, and my favourite way to describe my work ...
  • Neanderthal plant use and pyrotechnology: phytolith analysis from Roc de Marsal, France 

    Wroth, Kristen; Cabanes, Dan; Marston, John M.; Aldeias, Vera; Sandgathe, Dennis; Turq, Alain; Goldberg, Paul; Dibble, Harold L. (Springer Nature Switzerland AG, 2019-08)
    The plant component of Neanderthal subsistence and technology is not well documented, partially due to the preservation constraints of macrobotanical components. Phytoliths, however, are preserved even when other plant ...
  • Assessing democratic engagement through student organizations 

    Robiadek, Katherine M.; Strachan, J. Cherie; Bennion, Elizabeth A. (Informa UK Limited, 2019-10-20)
    The National Survey of Student Leaders (NSSL) is the first initiative extending scholarly insights about democratic benefits of participation in civil society associations to student organizations and their leaders on ...
  • Mapping paintings, or how to breathe life into provenance 

    Cranston, Jodi (Routledge, 2020-05-05)
    The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston houses the extraordinary collection of Mrs. Gardner in a purpose-built Venetian-style palace. Observing the artworks in exactly the same arrangement as Mrs. Gardner experienced ...
  • Explicit Coleman integration for curves 

    Balakrishnan, Jennifer; Tuitman, Jan (2020-01-13)
    The Coleman integral is a p-adic line integral that plays a key role in computing several important invariants in arithmetic geometry. We give an algorithm for explicit Coleman integration on curves, using the algorithms ...
  • Epistatic interaction maps relative to multiple metabolic phenotypes 

    Snitkin, Evan S.; Segrè, Daniel (Public Library of Science, 2011-02-01)
    An epistatic interaction between two genes occurs when the phenotypic impact of one gene depends on another gene, often exposing a functional association between them. Due to experimental scalability and to evolutionary ...
  • Judicious QoS using cloud overlays 

    Haq, Osama; Doucette, Cody; Byers, John W.; Dogar, Fahad R. (2019-06-06)
    We revisit the long-standing problem of providing network QoS to applications, and propose the concept of judicious QoS -- combining the cheaper, best effort IP service with the cloud, which offers a highly reliable ...
