Security games provide a framework for allocating limited security resources in adversarial domains, and are currently used in deployed systems for LAX, the Federal Air Marshals, and the U.S. Coast Guard. One of the major challenges in security games is finding solutions that are robust to uncertainty about the game model. Bayesian game models have been(More)
We show how to combine statistically efficient ways to design discrete choice experiments based on random utility theory with new ways of collecting additional information that can be used to expand the amount of available choice information for modeling the choices of individual decision makers. Here we limit ourselves to problems involving generic choice(More)
RATIONALE Angiotensin II (Ang II) signaling has been implicated in cardiac arrhythmogenesis, which involves induction of reactive oxygen species (ROS). It was shown that Ang II can activate Ca/Calmodulin kinase II (CaMKII) by oxidation via a NADPH oxidase 2 (NOX2)-dependent pathway leading to increased arrhythmic afterdepolarizations. Interestingly,(More)
INTRODUCTION The tobacco industry uses various aspects of cigarette packaging design to market to specific groups. The current study examined the relative importance of five cigarette packaging attributes--pack structure (eg, "slims"), brand, branding, warning label size, and price--on perceptions of product taste, harm, and interest in trying, among young(More)
INTRODUCTION E-cigarettes present a formidable challenge to regulators given their variety and the rapidly evolving nicotine market. The current study sought to examine the influence of e-cigarette product characteristics on consumer perceptions and trial intentions among Canadians. METHODS An online discrete choice experiment was conducted with 915(More)
We develop a model of the evolution of inter-purchase times for a consumer-packaged product. After the introduction of the product, a consumer waits to make the initial purchase, then either waits to repurchase or decides not to. A repurchasing consumer repeats this decision process. The components of the model are the repurchase probability and the density(More)
