The Participation of Japanese Military Forces in U.N. Peacekeeping Operations
In September 1992, the first Japanese military forces were committed to participation in a U.N. peacekeeping mission, the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC). This occurred under new Japanese legislation ...
Mixed H2 /H∞ Optimization: A BMI Solution
The mixed H2 /H∞ problem arises as one means to achieve robust good performance for a controlled linear time-invariant system. The idea is to achieve H2 optimal performance subject to an H∞ bound as robustness. It has been ...
Why is 'The Market' so Unforgiving? Reflections on the Tequilazo
Mexico’s financial debacle and its impact on other emerging markets (the Tequila effect) has raised many fundamental questions. Mexico achieved fiscal balance in 1993, undertook several fundamental market-oriented reforms, ...
Simulation and Self-knowledge
(Cambridge University Press, 1996)
In this chapter I shall be attempting to curb the pretensions of simulationism. I shall argue that it is, at best, an epistemological doctrine of limited scope. It may explain how we go about attributing beliefs and desires ...
Magnetic imaging in the presence of external fields: Technique and applications (invited)
(American Institute of Physics, 1996-04-15)
Magnetic force microscopy (MFM) in the presence of an external magnetic field has been developed. This has led to further understanding of image formation in MFM as well as new insights concerning the interaction of ...

A NEW Method to Design Broadcast Schedules in a Wireless Communication Environment
Wireless data broadcasting is a promising way of disseminating information to a massive number of clients in an asymmetric communication environment where client-to-server communication is infeasible. An important issue ...
Inclusive electron scattering from nuclei at x≃1
The inclusive A(e,e′) cross section for x≃1 was measured on 2H, C, Fe, and Au for momentum transfers Q2 from 1 to 6.8 (GeV/c)2. The scaling behavior of the data was examined in the region of transition from y scaling to x ...
Modulation and Sampling Techniques for Multichannel Deconvolution
The problem recovering information from single component linear translation invariant systems is inherently ill-posedness may be circumvented in a multichannel system if the components of the system satisfy the strongly ...
