This paper presents results from a series of experiments designed to test the impact on subject behavior of changes in the risk dominance and payoff dominance characteristics of two player coordination games. The main finding is that changes in risk dominance significantly affect play of the subjects, whereas changes in the level of payoff dominance do not.(More)
A three-dimensional unstructured mesh discretization of the rotational from of the incompressible Navier–Stokes is presented. The method uses novel and highly efficient algorithms for interpolating the velocity vector and constructing the convention term. The resulting discretization is shown to conserve mass, kinetic energy, and vorticity to machine(More)
Form Approved OMB No. 0704-0188 Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information.

Mitigation of security risk is an important task in enterprise network security management. However it is presently a skill acquired by individual experience, more an art than a science. The biggest challenge in the problem is a quantitative model that objectively measures the likelihood a breach can be accomplished. This paper presents a sound and(More)
S U M M A R Y Using InSAR and hydrogeologic time-series spanning 1995 to 2000, we characterize the elastic storage and surface deformation in the vicinity of the San Bernardino basin, California. The region encompasses a complex major aquifer located at the junction of the San Andreas and San Jacinto faults that supplies groundwater to over 600,000 people.(More)
This study estimates the price effects of horizontal mergers in the U.S. grocery retailing industry. We examine fourteen regions affected by mergers including both highly concentrated and relatively unconcentrated markets. We identify price effects by comparing markets affected by mergers to unaffected markets using both difference-in-difference estimation(More)
Quantifying security risk is an important and yet difficult task in enterprise network security management. While metrics exist for individual software vulnerabilities, there is currently no standard way of aggregating such metrics. We present a model that can be used to aggregate vulnerability metrics in an enterprise network, producing quantitative(More)
Herein, we report the one-pot synthesis of an electron-poor nanographene containing dicarboximide groups at the corners. We efficiently combined palladium-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling and dehydrohalogenation to synthesize an extended two-dimensional π-scaffold of defined size in a single chemical operation starting from(More)
