Publications, Datasets, and Code

Publications are listed in reverse chronological order. For divisions between conference and journal papers, please see my CV. Preprints are eventually replaced with their published versions. Free versions of articles are given for publications, when available, and when not, you can request and I will gladly send you a copy. If the arXiv and ResearchGate versions are identical, the arXiv version is given.

Equation (5) in the paper has a typo: the first minus sign should be addition:

\[SIE(p_i, \mathbf{x}) = p_i + (1 - 2p_i) \prod_{x_a \in S_{p_i} } x_a\]
