In this paper I analyze investors' reactions to changes in the expense ratios of equity mutual funds. I show that investment flows' response to fees cannot be fully explained by looking at investors' performance sensitivity. ...

Although H+ and OH are the most common ions in aqueous media, they are not usually observable in capillary electrophoresis (CE) experiments, because of the extensive use of buffer solutions as the background electrolyte. ...
Single-product oligopolies are examined with uncertain isoelastic price functions and linear cost functions. Each firm wants to maximize its expected profit and also wants to minimize its uncertainty by minimizing the ...

The Mantel-Haenszel test provides a straightforwdd method to combine results from several clinical trials when only summary information, such as the proportion of deaths, is available for each trial. More efficient tests, ...
A new polynomial-time iterative algorithm is presented for the scheduling problem with a unit execution time task
system, parallel identical processors, precedence constraints, release times, and the criterion of maximum ...
The paper describes the use of a longitudinal tobit model to characterize cognitive decline over a 13-year period in a cohort of 2087 elderly Australians. Use of a tobit formulation allows for the so-called `ceiling effect? ...
The support vector machine (SVM) has provided higher performance than traditional learning machines and has been widely applied in real-world classification problems and nonlinear function estimation problems. Unfortunately, ...
Literature illustrates the difficulties in obtaining the lowest-cost optimal solution to an ore blending problem for blast furnaces by using the traditional trial-and-error method in iron and steel enterprises. To solve ...
The majority of research on bilevel programming has centered on the linear version of the problem in which only one leader and one follower are involved. This paper addresses linear bilevel multi-follower programming (BLMFP) ...
In a real world bilevel decision-making, the lower level of a bilevel decision usually involves multiple decision units. This paper proposes the Kappa th-best approach for linear bilevel multifollower programming problems ...
Five retrospective studies have reported an association between antibiotic use in early life and asthma in childhood. We studied the relationship between the use of oral antibiotics in the first year of life and asthma, ...
Using a simple integral identity, we derive general expressions for the Laplace transform of the transition density of the process, if killing or reflecting boundaries are specified. We also obtain a number of useful ...
We propose a latent variable model for mixed discrete and continuous outcomes. The model accommodates any mixture of outcomes from an exponential family and allows for arbitrary covariate effects, as well as direct modelling ...
Multiple outcomes are commonly measured in:the study of birth defects. The reason is that most teratogens do not cause a single, uniquely defined defect, but rather result in a range of effects, including major malformations, ...
