Dealing with timing related soft fails has become predominant with recent technologies and is expected more so future. A backside FIB edit procedure allowed trimming of internal timing conditions, with demonstrated FIB-induced speed enhancement ≫ 20%. This proposed technique seems applicable to any on chip circuitry, expanding rapid prototyping(More)
OBJECTIVES To estimate the effect of SLE disease activity, observed over a 12-month period, on the risk of irreversible organ damage and mortality, adjusted for potential confounding factors. METHODS Patients were enrolled into a prospective cohort study and followed up from 1991. This study retrospectively analyses the data captured in the prospective(More)
In comparing investment behavior at the domestic location between pure exporters and multinational firms, one has to take into account that multinational firms do not arise randomly. There is self-selection, which requires an endogenous treatment approach for assessing the impact of being a multinational on domestic investment. Based on a simple model, we(More)
This paper uses a gravity model framework to evaluate the impact of antidump-ing on trade volume over the period of the GATT/WTO (1948-2001). We conclude that the e¤ects have been negative, but quite modest. Acknowledgement 1.

In this paper, we consider a spatial-autoregressive model with autoregressive disturbances, where we allow for endogenous regressors in addition to a spatial lag of the dependent variable. We suggest a two-step generalized method of moments (GMM) and instrumental variable (IV) estimation approach extending earlier work by, e.g., Kelejian and Prucha (1998,(More)
Trade economists have for long considered gravity models to estimate unexhausted potentials for bilateral trade. Similar to the discrepancy between "normal" and "actual" bilateral trade, one may ask the question about the difference between "normal" and actual bilateral multinational activity. However, with multinational activity, zero bilateral data and(More)
