   Abstract = {Interval timing in operant conditioning is the learned
             covariation of a temporal dependent measure such as wait
             time with a temporal independent variable such as
             fixed-interval duration. The dominant theories of interval
             timing all incorporate an explicit internal clock, or
             "pacemaker," despite its lack of independent evidence. The
             authors propose an alternative, pacemaker-free view that
             demonstrates that temporal discrimination can be explained
             by using only 2 assumptions: (a) variation and selection of
             responses through competition between reinforced behavior
             and all other, elicited, behaviors and (b) modulation of the
             strength of response competition by the memory for recent
             reinforcement. The model departs radically from existing
             timing models: It shows that temporal learning can emerge
             from a simple dynamic process that lacks a periodic time
             reference such as a pacemaker.},

   Abstract = {This paper presents results from an experimental computer
             simulated stock market. In this market artificial
             intelligence algorithms take on the role of traders. They
             make predictions about the future, and buy and sell stock as
             indicated by their expectations of future risk and return.
             Prices are set endogenously to clear the market. Time series
             from this market are analyzed from the standpoint of
             well-known empirical features in real markets. The simulated
             market is able to replicate several of these phenomenon,
             including fundamental and technical predictability,
             volatility persistence, and leptokurtosis. Moreover, agent
             behavior is shown to be consistent with these features, in
             that they condition on the variables that are found to be
             significant in the time series tests. Agents are also able
             to collectively learn a homogeneous rational expectations
             equilibrium for certain parameters giving both time series
             and individual forecast values consistent with the
             equilibrium parameter values.},

   Abstract = {We have developed a combinatoric matching method to find the

             the ±J distribution and equal numbers of positive and
             negative bonds. For the largest size (1800 × 1800
             plaquettes of spins), we averaged results from 278 samples
             and for the smaller ones up to 374, 375 samples. We also
             studied the behavior of the distributions of computer time
             (CPU) and memory as functions of sample size. We present
             finite size scaling leading to a groundstate energy estimate
             of E∞ = -1.40193 ± 2 for the infinite system. We found
             that the memory scales as the square of sample length and
             that for a given size, the CPU time appears to have a skewed

   Abstract = {The cumulative effects (CE) model explains free-operant
             choice by the ratio of total numbers of responses and
             reinforcements, a probability-like variable. Williams (1994)
             argues that the model is vulnerable to experiments that
             disprove melioration, a local probability model. The authors
             note critical differences between the nonlocal CE model and
             local probability models that allow the CE model to handle
             some data with which they are incompatible. All models are
             simplifications of reality; hence, a model's failures are as
             revealing as its successes. Williams suggests that simple
             models may need to be abandoned in favor of a
             "representational" account. The authors point out that
             representations must be both acquired and acted on.
             Acquisition requires processing of responses and
             reinforcers; action requires decision rules. Models are
             simply testable suggestions for what these rules and
             processes might be.},

             significantly outperforming more complex algorithms that use

   Abstract = {We describe a model of a stockmarket in which independent

             The overall market behavior, such as the stock price time
             series, is an emergent property of the agents' behavior.
             This approach to modelling a market is contrasted with
             conventional rational expectations approaches. Our model
             does not necessarily converge to an equilibrium, and can
             show bubbles, crashes, and continued high trading volume. ©

   Abstract = {Recurrent choice has been studied for many years. A static
             law, matching, has been established, but there is no
             consensus on the underlying dynamic process. The authors
             distinguish between dynamic models in which the model state
             is identified with directly measurable behavioral properties
             (performance models) and models in which the relation
             between behavior and state is indirect (state models). Most
             popular dynamic choice models are local, performance models.
             The authors show that behavior in different types of
             discrimination-reversal experiments and in extinction is not
             explained by 2 versions of a popular local model and that
             the nonlocal cumulative-effects model is consistent with

             recurrent choice in a set of discrimination-reversal

   Abstract = {We study a sliding block model incorporating constraints in
             an attempt to understand the slower than exponential
             relaxation observed in glassy systems. Blocks are free to
             slide along the axes of a regular lattice but cannot
             interpenetrate. We simulate two-dimensional L × L lattices
             with L = 8, 16, 32 and 64 and different number of vacancies.
             Three-dimensional L × L × L lattices with L = 4, 8, 16 and
             32 and one vacancy are also studied. We find the existence
             of three time regimes for relaxation towards complete
             disorder, in both two and three dimensions. In the
             short-time regime the relaxation follows a stretched
             exponential law; in the intermediate-time regime there is a
             √t behaviour; and in the long-time regime the relaxation
             is exponential. In the intermediate- and long-time regimes
             the results agree well with the theoretical results of
             Brummelhuis and Hilhorst. The stretched exponential
             behaviour in the short-time regime is a natural consequence
             of the constrained dynamics. © 1990 IOP Publishing

             spin-flip dynamics, the correlation function si(0)si(t)is

             exp[-c(lnt)d(d-1)] in a temperature range above the

   Abstract = {Crick and Mitchison have presented a hypothesis for the
             functional role of dream sleep involving an 'unlearning'
             process. We have independently carried out mathematical and
             computer modelling of learning and 'unlearning' in a
             collective neural network of 30-1,000 neurones. The model
             network has a content-addressable memory or 'associative
             memory' which allows it to learn and store many memories. A
             particular memory can be evoked in its entirety when the
             network is stimulated by any adequate-sized subpart of the
             information of that memory. But different memories of the
             same size are not equally easy to recall. Also, when
             memories are learned, spurious memories are also created and
             can also be evoked. Applying an 'unlearning' process,
             similar to the learning processes but with a reversed sign
             and starting from a noise input, enhances the performance of
             the network in accessing real memories and in minimizing
             spurous ones. Although our model was not motivated by higher
             nervous function, our system displays behaviours which are
             strikingly parallel to those needed for the hypothesized
             role of 'unlearning' in rapid eye movement (REM)

   Abstract = {The properties of nuclear matter and dense neutron-star
             matter are studied by an approach which largely avoids the
             microscopic assumptions of nuclear-matter theory. The method
             is empirical, employing an extended form of the law of
             corresponding states to deduce the properties of nuclear
             systems from those of laboratory substances such as helium.
             It is possible to predict the solidification pressure and
             density, the compressibility, and the critical temperature
             of nuclear and neutron-star matter. As previously reported,
             a comparatively low solidification pressure is found for
             neutron-star matter, implying a solid core for most neutron
             stars. © 1974 The American Physical Society.},

   Abstract = {The exact solution of the mean spherical model integral
             equation is found for a system of charged hard spheres in a
             uniform neutralizing background. This may be considered as a
             simple example of a fluid with nonadditive hard sphere
             diameters. Analytic expressions are given for the direct
             correlation function and for the Laplace transform of the
             radial distribution function. These, and the thermodynamic
             properties of the system, are compared with previous
             solutions of the mean spherical model.},
