This paper describes how scholars in Chinese Interpreting Studies (CIS) interact with each other and form discrete circles of influence. It also discusses what it means to be an influential scholar in the community, and the relationship between an author's choice of research topic and his academic influence. The study examines an all-but-exhaustive(More)
Figure 1: A series of snapshot renders from importance sampling our hair reflectance functions. Our model supports efficient and seamless rendering of fibers with elliptical cross section. This is key to producing time-homogeneous, realistic caustics. We produced these images by rotating an outdoor IBL gathered in midday, and using a ray tracer with(More)
Over the five decades since its beginnings, Chinese Interpreting Studies (CIS) has evolved into a dynamic field of academic enquiry with more than 3,500 scholars and 4,200 publications. Using quantitative and qualitative analysis, this scientometric study delves deep into CIS citation data to examine some of the noteworthy trends and patterns of behavior in(More)
Figure 1: Three of the 8 scene geometries analyzed to estimate IE ⇢-expectation over pixel space. The rest are shown in figure 4. 1 Abstract Importance sampling methods for ray tracing are numerous. One reason is due to the lack of a robust, quantitative method for comparison. This tech memo takes strides to provide a framework for comparing sampling(More)
This paper tests whether or not gains to monetary policy coordination exist in the New Keynesian two country model proposed in Clarida, Gali and Gertler (2002). Major innovations include rigorous numerical analysis that takes advantage of recent techniques proposed by Laffargue (1990) and Klein (2000) and an attention to robustness analysis as advocated by(More)
