201 Jameson, Kenneth P.Determinants of Latin American exchange rate regimesThe experience of the last thirty years suggests that a wide range of factors affects policymakers' choice of exchange rate regime. The initial explanation was that changes in the international sphere dominated domestic policies and strongly influenced how governments decided among the trade-offs. M...Monetary policy; Exchange rate regimes2005
202 Myers, Chris J.Learning genetic regulatory network connectivity from time series dataAbstract. Recent experimental advances facilitate the collection of time series data that indicate which genes in a cell are expressed. This paper proposes an efficient method to generate the genetic regulatory network inferred from time series data. Our method fi_x000C_rst encodes the data into le...2006

204 Davidson, Diane W.Herbivory on planted dipterocarp seedlings in secondary logged forests and primary forests of Sabah, MalaysiaLeaf defences, leaf nutritional quality and leaf expansion rates may vary with resource availabilities to plants. Such variation could affect rates of leaf loss to herbivores, particularly along the steep resource gradients in disturbed forests. Intraspecific and interspecific variation in leaf dama...Danum Valley; Dipterocarp; Dryobalanops lanceolata; Herbivory rates; Leaf damage; Leaf expansion rates; Logged tropical forests; Secondary forests; Shorea leprosula2001-03
205 Brown, Francis HaroldThe lower Omo basinThe boundaries of the Lower Omo Basin have been mapped by Fuchs (1939) and by Butzer (1970, 1971) in a general way. The structural features and physiography of the eastern and central part of the Lower Omo Basin are best expressed on the maps of Davidson et al. (1973). Walsh and Dodson (1969) have m...1983
206 Golden, Kenneth M.Classical transport in quasiperiodic mediaAbstract. Classical transport coefficients such as the effective conductivity or diffusivity of a quasiperiodic medium were observed [1] to depend discontinuously on the frequencies of the quasiperiodicity. For example, for a one-dimensional medium with a potential V(x) = cosx + coskx , the effecti...Transport; Diffusion; Random1991
207 Rogers, Alan R.Doubts about isonymyThe method of isonymy, developed by Crow and Mange for estimating inbreeding from surname frequencies, requires an assumption that has not been appreciated: It is necessary to assume that all males in some ancestral generation, the founding stock, had unique surnames. Because this assumption is sel...1991

210 Henderson, Thomas C.The importance of unknows in Epidemiologic studies1. Epidemiologic study data often include omitted/unobtainable responses (unknowns). In most cases, unknowns are eliminated during data-reduction to facilitate analysis. We examined the effect that elimination of unknowns would have on mortality calculations using data on newborns admitted to a newb...Unknowns; Mortality calculations1985
211 Cloud, Joann L.; Meyer, Jay J.; Pounder, June I.; Woods, Gail L.Mycobacterium arupense sp. nov., a novel moderately growing nonchromogenic bacterium isolated from clinical specimensThis author manuscript discusses how several isolates of Mycobacterium species related to the M. terrae complex have been isolated from clinical samples. In the clinical microbiology laboratory, partial 16S rRNA gene sequencing (approximate first 500 base pairs) is often used to identify Mycobacteri...Mycobacterium arupense; Mycobacterium nonchromogenicum; Mycobacterium terrae; Mycobacterium triviale; MCRO 62005-11-22
212 Davidson, Diane W.Experimental studies of species-specificity in cecropia-ant relationshipsStrict coevolution requires that interactions among organisms be speciesspecific. We assessed the relative roles of host- and habitat-specificity in determining the match between a genus of myrmecophytic trees and a guild of obligate plant-ants in the moist tropical forests of Madre de Dios, Peru.

213 Gooch, Bruce; Reinhard, Erik; Moulding, Chris; Shirley, Peter S.Artistic composition for image creationAltering the viewing parameters of a 3D object results in computer graphics images of varying quality. One aspect of image quality is the composition of the image. While the esthetic properties of an image are subjective, some heuristics used by artists to create images can be approximated quanti...Image creation; Image quality2000
214 Mattis, Daniel C.Magnetization of Ising model in nonzero magnetic fieldKnowing only the zero-field magnetization (e.g., Yang's result) of the Ising model in any number of dimensions, one can construct a lower bound on m(h), the magnetization in finite field. Knowledge of u, the internal energy per bond, enables a more efficient lower bound to be constructed. Both are ...Magnetization; Griffiths inequality1969
