The Trouble with Economic Statistics [The Independent Review, (1998)] Economists have been grousing a good deal lately about the deteriorating quality of basic economic statistics — official data on prices, incomes, employment, productivity, and poverty, among other things — and about the lack of government funding to remedy the problem. On its face, the complaint seems reasonable and practical. But I

Wave propagation in random media: diffusion vs. localization
Dr. Thomas Wellens (Physikalisches Institut, Univ. Freiburg): As it is well known, waves are fundamentally distinct from (classical) particles in their ability to display interference. However, in presence of disorder, interferences tend to be washed out. In this case, wave propagation reduces to a simple diffusion process - like a random walk of a classical particle ("soccer ball in the forest"). But under appropriate circumstances, some interferences may also survive the disorder average and i

To explain the emergence of technology as a pivotal word (and concept) in contemporary public discourse, we will examine responses — chiefly political and literary — to the development of the mechanic arts, and to the linked social, cultural, and ecological transformation of 19th- and 20th-century American society, cultu
