A few years ago it was recognized that the vision of a truly low-cost, low-power radio-based cable replacement was feasible. Such a ubiquitous link would provide the basis for portable devices to communicate together in an ad hoc fashion by creating <i>personal area networks</i> which have similar advantages to their office environment counterpart - the(More)
For a class of n-player (n ≥ 2) sequential bargaining games with probabilistic recognition and general agreement rules, we characterize pure strategy Stationary Subgame Perfect (PSSP) equilibria via a finite number of equalities and inequalities. We use this characterization and the degree theory of Shannon, 1994, to show that when utility over agreements(More)
A five-year follow-up of 888 asymptomatic men and women without known coronary heart disease (CHD) who had a maximal treadmill stress test (MTST) revealed a CHD incidence of 1.1% per year. In women, exercise duration of 3 minutes or less by the Ellestad protocol correlated with subsequent development of CHD (p less than 0.001), although abnormal ST-segment(More)
Muscle biopsies were obtained from the vastus lateralis of 14 male subjects: 3 long distance runners, 2 world class power lifters and 9 active, although not highly trained, individuals used as controls. The fibers were investigated by electron microscopy and the mitochondrial volume percent, lipid volume percent and Z-line width were analyzed(More)
Pareto dominated agreements are shown to prevail with positive probability in an open set of status quo in a Markov perfect equilibrium of a one-dimensional dynamic bargaining game with endogenous status-quo. This equilibrium is continuous, symmetric, with dynamic preferences that satisfy the single-plateau property. It is also shown that there does not(More)
We estimate the parameters of a reputational game of political competition using data from five two-party parliamentary systems. We find that latent party preferences (and party reputations) persist with high probability across election periods, with one exception: parties with extreme preferences who find themselves out of power switch to moderation with(More)
The prevalence of coronary risk factors was assessed in 1,817 asymptomatic adults in Long Beach, California, at the beginning and end of a 10-11 month interval. The risk factors evaluated were hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia, hypertension, smoking, hyperglycemia, and marked obesity. The results of the tests were sent to the participants and to(More)
