Divergent thinking is central to the study of individual differences in creativity, but the traditional scoring systems (assigning points for infrequent responses and summing the points) face well-known problems. After critically reviewing past scoring methods, this article describes a new approach to assessing divergent thinking and appraises its(More)
Some ideas should never see the light of day. It shouldn't surprise us that someone thought of selling artificial testicles for neutered dogs, measuring the emotions of vegetables, or drinking urine to treat cancer: we all have some misses along with our hits. What is more startling is that the creator thought the idea was a hit, that it was good enough to(More)
The celebrated inequalities of Bell are based on the assumption that local hidden parameters exist. When combined with conflicting experimental results, these inequalities appear to prove that local hidden parameters cannot exist. This contradiction suggests to many that only instantaneous action at a distance can explain the Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen(More)
We describe a two-dimensional model for quantum-well lasers that solves self-consistently the electrical and optical equations. The model includes a wavelengthand position-dependent gain function which is derived from a quantum-mechanical calculation. We have also incorporated the effects of strain into the model, through an anisotropic parabolic band(More)
We analyze the assumptions that are made in the proofs of Bell-type inequalities for the results of Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen type of experiments. We find that the introduction of time-like random variables permits the construction of a broader mathematical model which accounts for all correlations of variables that are contained in the time dependent(More)
The classical concept and theory suggest that the degradation of MOS transistors is caused by interface trap generation resulting from “hot carrier injection.” We report three new experiments that use the deuterium isotope effect to probe the mechanism for interface trap generation in n-MOS transistors in the presence of hot hole and electron injection.(More)
Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) have designed a gedanken experiment that suggested a theory that was more complete than quantum mechanics. The EPR design was later realized in various forms, with experimental results close to the quantum mechanical prediction. The experimental results by themselves have no bearing on the EPR claim that quantum mechanics(More)
We assess the impact of nonlinear electronic transport and, in particular, of real space transfer (RST) on device performance for advanced III/V high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) using the device simulator MINIMOS-NT. In this context, we discuss dc and RF performance issues for pseudomorphic AlGaAs/InGaAs/GaAs HEMTs that are especially relevant for(More)
We show that the known proofs of Bell's inequalities contain algebraic manipulations that are not appropriate within the syntax of Kolmogorov's axioms for probability theory without detailed justification. Such justification can be achieved by a variant of the techniques used in Bell-type proofs but only for a subclass of objective local parameter spaces.(More)
