Automatically identifying the polarity of words is a very important task in Natural Language Processing. It has applications in text classiﬁcation, text ﬁltering, analysis of product review, analysis of responses to surveys, and mining online discussions. We propose a method for identifying the polarity of words. We apply a Markov random walk model to a large word relatedness graph, producing a polarity estimate for any given word. A key advantage of the model is its ability to accurately and quickly assign a polarity sign and magnitude to any word. ...
“Not more than half a dozen really good books about investing have been written in the past fifty years. This one may well be the classics category.” ----- FORBES This is a detailed abstract of the book. The opinions in the abstract only reflect those of the author’s not mine, though I largely agree with most of his opinions. The “I” in the abstract refers to the author. If you are only interested in how to make investment, you can read Part four directly. However, I strongly suggest you read the whole abstract....
A volume of collected works is almost always a bad sign for one's research
trajectory, an indication of declining productivity as much as professional
recognition. We hope to be the exception that proves this rule because neither
of us is willing to concede that we have reached the apex of our careers .
However, we do think that the papers collected in this volume form a coherent
and exciting story, one that bears retelling now that we have the luxury
of seeing the forest for the trees .
Let T (x, ε) denote the ﬁrst hitting time of the disc of radius ε centered at x for Brownian motion on the two dimensional torus T2 . We prove that supx∈T2 T (x, ε)/| log ε|2 → 2/π as ε → 0. The same applies to Brownian motion on any smooth, compact connected, two-dimensional, Riemannian manifold with unit area and no boundary. As a consequence, we prove a conjecture, due to Aldous (1989), that the number of steps it takes a simple random walk to cover all points of the lattice torus Z2 is asymptotic to 4n2 (log...
Chance events are commonplace in our daily lives. Every day we face situations where the result is uncertain, and, perhaps without realizing it, we guess about the likelihood of one outcome or another. Fortunately, mastering the concepts of probability can cast new light on situations where randomness and chance appear to rule. In this fully revised second edition of Understanding Probability, the reader can learn about the world of probability in an appealing way.
We establish three identities involving Dyck paths and alternating Motzkin
paths, whose proofs are based on variants of the same bijection. We interpret
these identities in terms of closed random walks on the halfline. We explain how
these identities arise from combinatorial interpretations of certain properties of the
-Hermite and -Laguerre ensembles of random matrix theory. We conclude by
presenting two other identities obtained in the same way, for which finding combinatorial
proofs is an open problem....
Opinion Question Answering (Opinion QA), which aims to ﬁnd the authors’ sentimental opinions on a speciﬁc target, is more challenging than traditional factbased question answering problems. To extract the opinion oriented answers, we need to consider both topic relevance and opinion sentiment issues. Current solutions to this problem are mostly ad-hoc combinations of question topic information and opinion information.

We consider the problem of answering complex questions that require inferencing and synthesizing information from multiple documents and can be seen as a kind of topicoriented, informative multi-document summarization. The stochastic, graph-based method for computing the relative importance of textual units (i.e. sentences) is very successful in generic summarization.
Thị trường chứng khoán là canh bạc đối với những người không cần mất công hiểu biết về nó, nhưng thật ra nó là một trò chơi đầy trí tuệ và mất nhiều công sức. Nó có thể là con đường để nhà đầu tư đạt đỉnh vinh quang nhưng cũng có thể là nơi gieo mình xuống vực thẳm. Thành công trên con đường chinh phục thị trường chứng khoán Trong các lý thuyết về tài chính và kinh tế, có giả thuyết nổi tiếng "Random walk" (Bước di ngẫu nhiên).
FOR many years the following question
has been a source of continuing
controversy in both academic and
business circles: To what extent can the
past history of a common stock's price
be used to make meaningful predictions
concerning the future price of the stock?
Answers to this question have been provided
on the one hand by the various
chartist theories and on the other hand
by the theory of random walks

A desirable characteristic of a performance measure is that it be timely, i.e., measure the effect of the manager's actions on firm value at the time those actions are taken (Holmstrom, 1982). This suggests earnings should incorporate the future cash flow effects of managers' actions. Ifthis was all there were to the determination of earnings, we could understand the robust result from thirty years of evidence that, for shorter horizons, average annual earnings is relatively well-described by a random walk (see Watts and Zimmerman, 1986, chapter 6).
CHAPTER 18 Random Walk Behavior of CTA Returns. This chapter examines whether CTA percent changes in NAVs follow random walks with drift. Monthly data from January 1994 to December 2000 are tested for nonstationarity and random walk with drift, using the Augmented Dickey-Fuller test.
This is the ninth book of examples from Probability Theory. The topic Stochastic Processes is so big
that I have chosen to split into two books. In the previous (eighth) book was treated examples of
Random Walk and Markov chains, where the latter is dealt with in a fairly large chapter. In this book
we give examples of Poisson processes, Birth and death processes, Queueing theory and other types
of stochastic processes.
Our setup allows us to disentan-
gle the implications of these two alternative pricing mechanisms that are standard in the
open-economy macro literature. In our model, di®erent assumptions regarding the pricing
decisions of ¯rms are virtually inconsequential for the properties of aggregate variables, other
than the terms of trade. In particular, the real exchange rate and the international relative
price of ¯nal tradable goods behave similarly across the two price setting regimes.
