We used computer-generated dot maps to examine the spatial distribution of 94 Toxoplasma gondii infections associated with an outbreak in British Columbia, Canada. The incidence among patients served by one water distribution system was 3.52 times that of patients served by other sources. Acute T. gondii infection among 3, 812 pregnant women was associated(More)
Everyone wants to go to a bar called El Farol if it is not crowded but would rather stay home if it is. Unfortunately, the only way to know whether or not the bar is crowded is to go. While such a scenario appears far removed from the typical communications literature, it provides a simple paradigm for analyzing public goods like the Internet, which may(More)
Coordination failure, or agents’ uncertainty about the action of other agents, may be an important source of congestion in large decentralized systems. The El Farol problem provides a simple paradigm for congestion and coordination problems that may arise with over utilization of the Internet. This paper reviews the El Farol problem and surveys previous(More)
Coordination failure, or agents’ uncertainty about the action of other agents, may be an important source of congestion in large decentralized systems. The El Far01 or Santa Fe bar problem provides a simple paradigm for congestion and coordination problems that may arise with over utilization of the Internet. This paper recasts the problem in a stochastic(More)
It is often argued by proponents of bounded rationality models that such models do not fit the standard Bayesian decision theoretic framework. The arguments often involve a statement that bounded rationality models are simple, while the Bayesian models are complicated. The main point of this paper is to show that certain models of bounded rationality fit(More)
Despite the central importance of crew safety in the design and operation of a life support system, the tools commonly used to evaluate alternative Advanced Life Support (ALS) technologies do not currently provide explicit techniques for measuring safety. The resilience of a system, or the system’s ability to meet performance requirements and recover from(More)
