I study the cyclical behavior of an equilibrium search model with endogenous job creation and destruction and extract from it a wage equation that can be compared with the econometric evidence. Job creation in the model is influenced by wages in new matches. I summarize microeconometric evidence on wages in new matches and show that the key model(More)
This paper points out an empirical puzzle that arises when an RBC economy with a job matching function is used to model unemployment. The standard model can generate sufficiently large cyclical fluctuations in unemployment, or a sufficiently small response of unemployment to labor market policies, but it cannot do both. Variable search and separation,(More)
A fast AAM search algorithm based on canonical correlation analysis (CCA-AAM) is introduced. It efficiently models the dependency between texture residuals and model parameters during search. Experiments show that CCA-AAMs, while requiring similar implementation effort, consistently outperform standard search with regard to convergence speed by a factor of(More)
In this paper, we apply a multiple regression method based on Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA) to face data modelling. CCA is a factor analysis method which exploits the correlation between two high dimensional signals. We first use CCA to perform 3D face reconstruction and in a separate application we predict near-infrared (NIR) face texture. In both(More)
Workflow technology is established in the business domain for several years. This fact suggests the need for detailed investigations in the qualification of conven-tional workflow technology for the evolving application domain of e-Science. This chapter discusses the requirements on scientific workflows, the state of the art of scientific workflow(More)
We examined the effects of left ventricular dilatation on epicardial pacing threshold, conduction velocity, and effective refractory period (ERP) in the isolated, retrograde perfused rabbit heart. Left ventricular size was modified by acutely changing the volume of a fluid-filled balloon anchored within the vented left ventricle. Increases in left(More)
Imiquimod (R-837, S-26308) and the analogue S-27609 were evaluated for cytokine induction in human blood cells. Both compounds induced interferon-alpha (IFN), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF), interleukin (IL)-1 beta, and IL-6 with S-27609 being 5 to 10 times more potent. Imiquimod and S-27609 also induced IL-1 alpha, IL-1 receptor antagonist, IL-10,(More)
