We examine the determinants of congressional voting behavior on two of the most signi…-…nd evidence that constituent interests and special interests in ‡uence voting patterns during the crisis. Representatives from districts experiencing an increase in mortgage default rates are signi…cantly more likely to vote in favor of the AHRFPA. They are precise in(More)
This paper examines the stability and accuracy of mass-spring systems used in sound synthesis. We show that the standard method used in mass-spring systems has no numerical damping, but does have frequency warping and is unstable at frequencies above 1/π times the sampling rate. We compare the standard method with two higher order numerical methods: the(More)

There are many ways of synthesizing sound on a computer. The method that we consider, called a mass-spring system, synthesizes sound by simulating the vibrations of a network of interconnected masses, springs and dampers. Numerical methods are required to approximate the differential equation of a mass-spring system. The standard numerical method used in(More)
