I will show how most of the real-time control tasks in power systems (voltage regulation, economic re-dispatch, line congestion mitigation, etc.) can be reformulated as an online optimization problem on a nonlinear manifold. In contrast to the conventional approach where an optimal power flow solution is repeatedly computed before being applied to the system, we ...

We build a dynamic text-based model of the product life cycle aggregated to the firm level. Motivated by theory, we model five stages: product innovation, process innovation, maturity, decline, and delisting. We find that firms, on average, follow identifiable transitions through the cycle as they age, however major shocks can disrupt, reverse, or accelerate this ...

"Stars and their Constellations: Great person or great team?" Abstract This paper examines star scientists and team performance in the context of scientific research collaborations and academic entrepreneurship. We employ a theoretically-driven matching model of value creation to estimate complementarities underlying team formation. Through an extension of the matching model, we calculate a “contribution interval” ... Read more about "Seminar by Prof. Denisa Mindruta, HEC Paris"

Abstract : Earthquakes are generated by the fast propagation of slip along active faults.The faults are not a pure sharp discontinuity but are borded by a damage zone, that witnessed the history of the fault growth, tectonics loading and previous earthquakes. The latter is of great interest for the study of previous earthquakes but it ... Read more about "Coseismic damage near active faults : a laboratory perspective"
