BlackMax: A black-hole event generator with rotation, recoil, split branes and brane tension
|Abstract||We present a comprehensive black-hole event generator, BlackMax, which simulates the experimental signatures of microscopic and Planckian black-hole production and evolution at the LHC in the context of brane world models with low-scale quantum gravity. The generator is based on phenomenologically realistic models free of serious problems that plague low-scale gravity, thus offering more realistic predictions for hadron-hadron colliders. The gene ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]|

How 'special' is the human face? Evidence from an audiovisual temporal order judgment task.
|Abstract||Upright and inverted audiovisual video clips of a monkey producing a 'coo' and a human imitating this vocalization were presented at a range of stimulus onset asynchronies. Participants made temporal order judgments regarding which modality stream appeared to have been presented first. The results showed that inverting the dynamic human visual display led to a significant differences in the point of subjective simultaneity, with the inverted huma ...

Copula-Based Models for Financial Time Series.
|Abstract||This paper presents an overview of the literature on applications of copulas in the modelling of financial time series. Copulas have been used both in multivariate time series analysis, where they are used to charaterise the (conditional) cross-sectional dependence between individual time series, and in univariate time series analysis, where they are used to characterise the dependence between a sequence of observations of a scalar time series pr ...
