Upon what kind of moral order does capitalism rest? Conversely, does the market give rise to a distinctive set of beliefs, habits, and social bonds? These questions are certainly as old as social science itself. In this review, we evaluate how today's scholarship approaches the relationship between markets and the moral order. We begin with Hirschman's(More)
This article presents the results of a poll made among the members of the editorial and advisory boards of Valuation Studies. The purpose is to overview the topic that is the remit of the new journal. The poll focused on three questions: 1. Why is the study of valuation topical? 2. What specic issues related to valuation are the most pressing ones to(More)
Thanks to an experimental study based on simulated and physical phantoms, the propagation of the stochastic noise in slices reconstructed using the conjugate gradient algorithm has been analysed versus iterations. After a first increase corresponding to the reconstruction of the signal, the noise stabilises before increasing linearly with iterations. The(More)
This paper presents an extended 3-D exact rebinning formula in the Fourier space that leads to an iterative reprojection algorithm (iterative FOREPROJ), which enables the estimation of unmeasured oblique projection data on the basis of the whole set of measured data. In first approximation, this analytical formula also leads to an extended Fourier rebinning(More)
As the main producers of managerial elites, business schools represent strategic research sites for understanding the formation of economic practices and representations. This article draws on historical material to analyze the changing place of economics in American business education over the course of the twentieth century. We use the Wharton School as(More)
Multimodal images registration can be very helpful for diagnostic applications. However, even if a lot of registration algorithms exist, only a few really work in clinical routines. We developed a method based on surface matching and compared two minimization algorithms: Powell's and Downhill Simplex. We studied the influence of some factors (chamfer map(More)
This paper describes how the stability of the inverse problem underlying emission tomography can be measured and controlled in clinical settings. We show how the Lanczos approximation provides a way to regularize a certain class of iterative reconstruction algorithms through a given level of noise or resolution in the slices and for a given acquisition(More)
