Undergraduate Attitudes Toward Business Ethics: A Cross-Cultural Comparison

Robert Shields, Charles Comegys, Robert Lupton, Hideki Takei
2013 Journal of Studies in Education  
This study builds on prior work on the effect of demographic variables on undergraduate attitudes towards business ethics and examines differences between US and Japanese students sampled in 2011. The samples comprised 89 US and 147 Japanese undergraduate students (n-236). Respondents completed the Attitude Towards Business Ethics (ATBEQ) questionnaire and demographic questions. Data were analyzed with SPSS ANOVA, post-hoc t-tests and with non-parametric tests. Significant Japanese and US

The Japanese students expressed significantly stronger agreement with seven Machiavellian and three Social Darwinism statements whereas the US students expressed significantly stronger agreement with only two Machiavellian and one Social Darwinism statements.

Cross-Matching Multiple Spatial Observations and Dealing with Missing Data [article]

Jim Gray, Alex Szalay, Tamas Budavari, Robert Lupton, Maria Nieto-Santisteban, Ani Thakar
2007 arXiv   pre-print
Cross-match spatially clusters and organizes several astronomical point-source measurements from one or more surveys. Ideally, each object would be found in each survey. Unfortunately, the observation conditions and the objects themselves change continually. Even some stationary objects are missing in some observations; sometimes objects have a variable light flux and sometimes the seeing is worse. In most cases we are faced with a substantial number of differences in object detections between

The first step is to classify misses as ephemeral - when the object moved or simply disappeared, masked - when noise hid or corrupted the object observation, or edge - when the object was near the edge of the observational field. This classification and a spatial library to represent and manipulate observational footprints help construct a Match table recording both hits and misses. Transitive closure clusters friends-of-friends into object bundles. The bundle summary statistics are recorded in a Bundle table. This design is an evolution of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey cross-match design that compared overlapping observations taken at different times.

A Method for Optimal Image Subtraction

C. Alard, Robert H. Lupton
1998 Astrophysical Journal  
We present a new method designed for optimal subtraction of two images with different seeing. Using image subtraction appears to be essential for the full analysis of the microlensing survey images, however a perfect subtraction of two images is not easy as it requires the derivation of an extremely accurate convolution kernel. Some empirical attempts to find the kernel have used the Fourier transform of bright stars, but solving the statistical problem of finding the best kernel solution has

We demonstrate that it is possible to derive an optimal kernel solution from a simple least square analysis using all the pixels of both images, and also show that it is possible to fit the differential background variation at the same time. We also show that PSF variations can also be easily handled by the method. To demonstrate the practical efficiency of the method, we analyzed some images from a Galactic Bulge field monitored by the OGLE II project. We find that the residuals in the subtracted images are very close to the photon noise expectations. We also present some light curves of variable stars, and show that, despite high crowding levels, we get an error distribution close to that expected from photon noise alone. We thus demonstrate that nearly optimal differential photometry can be achieved even in very crowded fields. We suggest that this algorithm might be particularly important for microlensing surveys, where the photometric accuracy and completeness levels could be very significantly improved by using this method.
