A full quantum dynamical study of the reactions of a hydrogen atom with water, on an accurate ab initio potential energy surface, is reported. The theoretical results are compared with available experimental data for the exchange and abstraction reactions in H + D2O and H + H2O. Clear agreement between theory and experiment is revealed for available thermal(More)
Reserve Bank of Boston for most helpful discussions and comments. COMPENSATION VEGA AND COMPETITION 2 Abstract We analyze how stock options compensation vega can be used as a commitment device in oligopolistic competition. We develop a two period model where shareholders structure managerial compensation to commit their managers to being risk-taking in(More)
First observation of J/ψ and ψ(2S) decaying to nK 0 S ¯ Λ + c.c. The decays of J/ψ and ψ(2S) to nK 0 S ¯ Λ + c.c. are observed and measured for the first time, and the perturbative QCD " 12% " rule is tested, based on 5.8 × 10 7 J/ψ and 1.4 × 10 7 ψ(2S) events collected with BESII detector at the Beijing Electron-Positron Collider. No obvious enhancement(More)
InSbN alloys are the new narrow bandgap semiconductors capable of broadband and long wavelength infrared photodetection. This paper reports the annealing conditions on the properties and quality of InSbN alloys, fabricated by multi-step ion implantation. The InSbN samples were annealed at different annealing methods, temperatures, and periods of time. They(More)
