C-motivic modular forms [article]

Bogdan Gheorghe, Daniel C. Isaksen, Achim Krause, Nicolas Ricka
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We construct a topological model for cellular, 2-complete, stable C-motivic homotopy theory that uses no algebro-geometric foundations. We compute the Steenrod algebra in this context, and we construct a "motivic modular forms" spectrum over C.

The Picard group of motivic A(1) [article]

Bogdan Gheorghe, Daniel C. Isaksen, Nicolas Ricka
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We show that the Picard group Pic(A(1)) of the stable category of modules over C-motivic A(1) is isomorphic to Z^4. By comparison, the Picard group of classical A(1) is Z^2 ⊕Z/2. One extra copy of Z arises from the motivic bigrading. The joker is a well-known exotic element of order 2 in the Picard group of classical A(1). The C-motivic joker has infinite order.

Acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding is a major problem worldwide, being a rare and life threatening condition, with a mortality rate situated between 2 and 4%. Acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding is solvent for 1 - 2% of the entire hospital emergencies, 15% presenting as massive bleeding and up to 5% requiring surgery. Lower gastrointestinal bleeding can be classified depending on their location in the small or large intestine. The small bowel is the rarest site of lower gastrointestinal

When endoscopic therapy associated with medical treatment are insufficient, endovascular intervention can be lifesaving. Unfortunately in some rare cases of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding with hemo-dynamic instability and the angiography performed being unable to locate the source of bleeding, the last therapeutic resource remains surgery. In the following we exemplify two cases of acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding which were resolved in different ways, followed by a thorough description of the different types of available treatment and finally, in the conclusions, we systematize the most important stages of the management algorithm in acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding.

Feedback Control for Online Training of Neural Networks [article]

Zilong Zhao, Sophie Cerf, Bogdan Robu, Nicolas Marchand
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are commonly used for image classification tasks, raising the challenge of their application on data flows. During their training, adaptation is often performed by tuning the learning rate. Usual learning rate strategies are time-based i.e. monotonously decreasing. In this paper, we advocate switching to a performance-based adaptation, in order to improve the learning efficiency. We present E (Exponential)/PD (Proportional Derivative)-Control, a conditional

Stability proof is provided as well as an experimental evaluation using two state of the art image datasets (CIFAR-10 and Fashion-MNIST). Results show better performances than the related works (faster network accuracy growth reaching higher levels) and robustness of the E/PD-Control regarding its parametrization.

Adverse Selection and Re-Trade

Nicolae Bogdan Garleanu, Lasse Heje Pedersen
2002 Social Science Research Network  
An important feature of financial markets is that securities are traded repeatedly by asymmetrically informed investors. We study how current and future adverse selection affect the required return. We find that the bid-ask spread generated by adverse selection is not a cost, on average, for agents who trade, and hence the bid-ask spread does not directly influence the required return. Adverse selection contributes to trading-decision distortions, however, implying allocation costs, which

Demand-Based Option Pricing

Nicolae Bogdan Garleanu, Lasse Heje Pedersen, Allen M. Poteshman
2005 Social Science Research Network  
We model demand-pressure effects on option prices. The model shows that demand pressure in one option contract increases its price by an amount proportional to the variance of the unhedgeable part of the option. Similarly, the demand pressure increases the price of any other option by an amount proportional to the covariance of the unhedgeable parts of the two options. Empirically, we identify aggregate positions of dealers and end-users using a unique dataset, and show that demand-pressure

Indeed, time-series tests show that demand helps explain the overall expensiveness and skew patterns of index options, and cross-sectional tests show that demand impacts the expensiveness of single-stock options as well.

Technological Growth and Asset Pricing

Nicolae Bogdan Garleanu, Stavros Panageas, Jianfeng Yu
2009 Social Science Research Network  
In this paper we study the implications of general-purpose technological growth for asset prices. The model features two types of shocks: "small", frequent, and disembodied shocks to productivity and "large" technological innovations, which are embodied into new vintages of the capital stock. While the former affect the economy on impact, the latter affect the economy with lags, since firms need to first adopt the new technologies through investment. The process of adoption leads to cycles in

This process can help provide a unified, investment-based view of some well documented phenomena such as the asset-valuation patterns around major technological innovations, the countercyclical behavior of returns, the lead-lag relationship between the stock market and output, and the increasing patterns of consumption-return correlations over longer horizons.

Rewriting XPath Queries using View Intersections: Tractability versus Completeness [article]

Bogdan Cautis, Alin Deutsch, Ioana Ileana, Nicola Onose
2013 arXiv   pre-print
The standard approach for optimization of XPath queries by rewriting using views techniques consists in navigating inside a view's output, thus allowing the usage of only one view in the rewritten query. Algorithms for richer classes of XPath rewritings, using intersection or joins on node identifiers, have been proposed, but they either lack completeness guarantees, or require additional information about the data. We identify the tightest restrictions under which an XPath can be rewritten in
more » ... an be rewritten in polynomial time using an intersection of views and propose an algorithm that works for any documents or type of identifiers. As a side-effect, we analyze the complexity of the related problem of deciding if an XPath with intersection can be equivalently rewritten as one without intersection or union. We extend our formal study of the view-based rewriting problem for XPath by describing also (i) algorithms for more complex rewrite plans, with no limitations on the number of intersection and navigation steps inside view outputs they employ, and (ii) adaptations of our techniques to deal with XML documents without persistent node Ids, in the presence of XML keys. Complementing our computational complexity study, we describe a proof-of-concept implementation of our techniques and possible choices that may speed up execution in practice, regarding how rewrite plans are built, tested and executed. We also give a thorough experimental evaluation of these techniques, focusing on scalability and the running time improvements achieved by the execution of view-based plans.

This paper addresses the problem of efficiently storing and accessing massive data blocks in a large-scale distributed environment, while providing efficient fine-grain access to data subsets. This issue is crucial in the context of applications in the field of databases, data mining and multimedia. We propose a data sharing service based on distributed, RAM-based storage of data, while leveraging a DHT-based, natively parallel metadata management scheme. As opposed to the most commonly used

Design and Renegotiation of Debt Covenants

Nicolae Bogdan Garleanu, Jeffrey H. Zwiebel
2004 Social Science Research Network  
We analyze the design and renegotiation of covenants in debt contracts as a particular example of the contractual assignment of property rights under asymmetric information. In particular, we consider a setting where future firm investments are efficient in some states, but also involve a transfer from the lender(s) to shareholders. While there is symmetric information regarding investment efficiency, managers are better informed about any potential transfer than the lender. The lender can
more » ... The lender can learn this information, but at a cost. In this setting, we show that the simple adverse selection problem leads to the allocation of greater ex-ante decision rights to the uninformed party than would follow under symmetric (in particular, full) information. Consequently, ex-post renegotiation is in turn biased towards the uninformed party giving up these excessive rights. In many settings, this result yields the opposite implication from standard Property Rights results regarding contracting under incomplete contracts and ex-ante investments, whereby rights should be allocated to minimize inefficiencies due to distortions in ex-ante investments. Indeed, for debt contracts as well as other settings, the uninformed party, who receives strong decision rights in our setting, is likely to have few significant ex-ante investments to undertake relative to the informed party.
