Efficiency of New York Dairy Farms: Exploring the Role of Managerial Ability
Byma, Justin (20060804)This paper explores the role of management ability in explaining efficiency on New York dairy farms using both Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and stochastic frontier estimation. First, we test whether computed technical, ...

EFFICIENT ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE VIA FORWARD CHAINING TACTICS
Chen, Zewei (Cornell University, 199504)The goal of this work is to explore efficient ways to use knowledge in interactive development of formal arguments. The challenge in automatically applying knowledge from a large knowledge base is in defining useful and ... 
An Efficient Algorithm for Nonlinear Minimax Problems
Conn, Andrew R.; Li, Yuying (Cornell University, 199003)We present a new method for solving a nonlinear minimax problem. This new algorithm exploits the structure and characterisation of the solution whenever possible. The exploitation is based on the results that have been ... 
An Efficient Algorithm for OneStep Planar Compliant Motion Planning with Uncertainty
Briggs, Amy (Cornell University, 198903)Uncertainty in the executin of robot motion plans must be accounted for in the geometric computations from which plans are obtained, especially in the case where position sensing is inaccurate. We give an $O(n^{2} log ... 
An Efficient Algorithm for Polymer Sequence Design
Kleinberg, Jon (Cornell University, 199803)Polymer sequence design is a natural inverse problem to protein structure prediction: given a target structure in three dimensions, we wish to design an amino acid sequence that will fold to it. A model of Sun, Brem, Chan, ... 
An Efficient Algorithm for Testing Losslessness of Joins in Relational Data Bases
Liu, Lishing; Demers, Alan J. (Cornell University, 197809)Answering queries in a relational database model often requires the computation of joins of relations. Losslessness of joins is an important property for joins of relations to be semantically meaningful. In this paper ... 
Efficient Algorithms for Optimal Video Transmission
Kozen, Dexter; Minsky, Yaron; Smith, Brian (Cornell University, 199505)This paper addresses the problem of sending an encoded video stream over a channel of limited bandwidth. When there is insufficient bandwidth available, some data must be dropped. For many video encodings, some data are ... 
Efficient Algorithms for Protein Sequence Design and the Analysis ofCertain Evolutionary Fitness Landscapes
Kleinberg, Jon (Cornell University, 199810)Protein sequence design is a natural inverse problem to protein structure prediction: given a target structure in three dimensions, we wish to design an amino acid sequence that is likely fold to it. A model of Sun, Brem, ... 
Efficient and Accurate Ethernet Simulation
Wang, Jia; Keshav, Srinivasan (Cornell University, 199902)The Internet is increasingly being called upon to provide different levels of service to different applications and users. A practical problem in doing so is that although Ethernet is one of the hops for nearly all ... 
Efficient and Accurate Ethernet Simulation (revised)
Wang, Jia; Keshav, Srinivasan (Cornell University, 199905)The Internet is increasingly being called upon to provide different levels of service to different applications and users. A practical problem in doing so is that although Ethernet is one of the hops for nearly all ... 
An Efficient Auction Mechanism for a ProductionTransportation Problem

Efficient AverageCase Algorithms for the Modular Group
Kozen, Dexter (Cornell University, 199404)The modular group occupies a central position in many branches of mathematical sciences. In this paper we give average polynomialtime algorithms for the unbounded and bounded membership problems for finitely generated ... 
Efficient Buffering in Reliable Multicast Protocols
Ozkasap, Oznur; Van Renesse, Robbert van; Birman, Kenneth P.,; Xiao, Zhen (Cornell University, 199907)Reliable multicast protocols provide allornone delivery to participants. Traditionally, such protocols suffer from large buffering requirements, as receivers have to buffer messages, and buffer sizes grow with the number ... 
Efficient Calculation of Jacobian and Adjoint Vector Products in Wave Propagational Inverse Problems Using Automatic Differentiation
Coleman, Thomas F.; Santosa, Fadil; Verma, Arun (Cornell University, 20030123)Wave propagational inverse problems arise in several applications including medical imaging and geophysical exploration. In these problems, one is interested in obtaining the parameters describing the medium from its ...

The Efficient Calculation of Powers of Polynomials
Horowitz, Ellis (Cornell University, 197204)Suppose we are given a polynomial $P(x_{1},\ldots,x_{r})$ in $r \geq 1$ variables, let $m$ bound the degree of $P$ in all variables $x_{i}, l \leq i \leq r$, and we wish to raise $P$ to the $n^{th}$ power, $n>1$. In a ... 
Efficient CO2 Sorbents Based on Silica Foam with Ultralarge Mesopores
Qi, Genggeng; Fu, Liling; Choi, Brian Hyun; Giannelis, Emmanuel P. (Energy & Environmental Science, 20120419)A series of highcapacity, amine impregnated sorbents based on a costeffective silica foam with ultralarge mesopores is reported.
