The relationship between experiment and quantum chemistry can adopt puzzle solving or benchmarking character, depending on whether theory assists in the interpretation of experiment or experiment is used to judge the performance of different quantum chemical approaches. For the spectroscopy of non-covalent interactions, both directions are very useful, but benchmarking activities increasingly tend to avoid ...

Abstract: Recent cyber-attacks targeting control and monitoring systems for critical infrastructures has revealed vulnerabilities frequently present in networked control systems. In fact, control systems are often designed to satisfy performance and safety constraints, without regard to security.

We analyze how proxy advisors, which sell voting recommendations to shareholders, affect corporate decision-making. If the quality of the advisor's information is low, there is overreliance on its recommendations and insufficient private information production. In contrast, if the advisor's information is precise, it may be underused because the advisor rations its recommendations to maximize profits. ...

Time-expanded networks are a useful tool from both modeling and computational perspectives. In terms of modeling, they enable a natural method for representing decisions that have both a geographic and temporal component. In terms of computation, they yield stronger integer programming formulations than those that represent time with continuous variables, which in turn require less ...
