The Kobayashi metric of a complex ellipsoid in {${\bf C}\sp 2$}
The infini tesimal Kobayashi metric of an ellipsoid of the form is calculated explicitly, modulo a parameter that is determined by solving a transcendental equation. Using this result, we show thatExpand
Nontangential maximal functions over compact Riemannian manifolds
The nontangential maximal function associated to the Poisson semigroup for a compact Riemannian manifold is shown to be weak type (1,1) and LP bounded (p > 1). Let M be a compact Riemannian manifoldExpand
Do incentives work? Option-based compensation and corporate innovation
Abstract Numerous scholars have investigated the link between option-based compensation and innovation in public firms, generally concluding options motivate innovative activities better thanExpand
