Laser Interferometer Space Antenna
Following the selection of The Gravitational Universe by ESA, and the successful flight of LISA Pathfinder, the LISA Consortium now proposes a 4 year mission in response to ESA's call for missionsExpand
Ageing of population and health care expenditure: a red herring?
The limited impact of age on HCE suggests that population ageing may contribute much less to future growth of the health care sector than claimed by most observers. Expand
Population ageing and health care expenditure: a school of 'red herrings'?
A 'school of red herrings' can be claimed to exist-with the possible exception of LTC, where ageing might matter regardless of proximity to death. Expand
Moral Hazard and Consumer Incentives in Health Care
Consumer incentives are reflected in a wide range of choices, many of which occur in both insurance- and tax-financed health care systems. However, health insurance and sick leave pay cause consumerExpand
Sub-Femto-g Free Fall for Space-Based Gravitational Wave Observatories: LISA Pathfinder Results.
We report the first results of the LISA Pathfinder in-flight experiment. The results demonstrate that two free-falling reference test masses, such as those needed for a space-based gravitational waveExpand
Population Ageing and Health Care Expenditure: New Evidence on the “Red Herring”
The observation that average health care expenditure rises with age generally leads experts and laymen alike to conclude that population ageing is the main driver of health care costs. In recentlyExpand
Do red herrings swim in circles? Controlling for the endogeneity of time to death.
A 10-year observation period is introduced on monthly HCE, socioeconomic characteristics and survivor status to first predict TTD and then use the predicted values as an instrument in the regression for HCE. Expand
A torque magnetometer for measurements of the high-field anisotropy of rocks and crystals
A highly automated torque magnetometer has been designed, mainly for measuring standard sized rock samples. By employing two hinges of crossed leaf-springs it was possible to integrate a stepperExpand
Supply-side and demand-side cost sharing in deregulated social health insurance: which is more effective?
Analyzing a panel dataset of about 160,000 adults, it is found both types of cost sharing to be effective in curtailing the use of medical services, however, when moral hazard mitigation is traded off against risk selection, the minimum-deductible, supply-side cost sharing option ranks first, followed by the medium- Deductible demand-side alternative.

The Gravitational Universe
The last century has seen enormous progress in our understanding of the Universe. We know the life cycles of stars, the structure of galaxies, the remnants of the big bang, and have a generalExpand
