Comparing Two Methods for Estimating Network Size
In this paper we compare two methods for estimating the size of personal networks using a nationally representative sample of the United States. Both methods rely on the ability of respondents toExpand

Estimation of Seroprevalence, Rape, and Homelessness in the United States Using a Social Network Approach
The authors have developed and tested scale-up methods, based on a simple social network theory, to estimate the size of hard-to-count subpopulations. The authors asked a nationally representativeExpand

On the rate of descent of overflows
The path taken by dense turbulent outflows usually requires the numerical solution of along-flow equations for mass, tracers, and momentum and cannot easily be predicted. Instead, we consider theExpand

The reversal small-world experiment
Abstract This paper is an attempt to examine and define the world network of a typical individual by discovering how many of his or her acquaintances could be used as first steps in a small-worldExpand

Estimating the size of an average personal network and of an event subpopulation: Some empirical results☆
Abstract A compelling problem in a population is to estimate the number of people the average person knows. A consequential related problem is to estimate the size of important subpopulations. AExpand

On rotating thermal convection driven by non-uniform heating from below
Experiments are described in which a radial temperature gradient is maintained along the lower horizontal boundary of a rotating annulus containing a thermally convecting fluid; the vertical sideExpand

Informant accuracy in social network data IV: a comparison of clique-level structure in behavioral and cognitive network data
Abstract This paper examines whether clique-structure in cognitive data (i.e. recall of who one talks to) may be used as a proxy for clique-structure in behavioral data (i.e. who one actually talksExpand

On the Motion of Isolated Lenses on a Beta-Plane
Abstract This paper examines the motion and propagation of an isolated of anomalous water on a beta-plane, considered previously by Nof (1981). His perturbation analysis is extended to show theExpand

On hydraulic control in a stratified fluid
The conditions for hydraulic control to occur in a continuously stratified fluid are discussed, using density as a vertical coordinate in place of height. A suitable definition of Froude number,Expand
