comparison theory 
A comparison theory for the structure of induced representations II


We give a short new proof for the comparison theory of the matrix valued Riccati equationB'+B2+R=0 with singular initial values.


By the CATcomparison theory we can deduce, using these surfaces as models, that aC∞ compact surface of nonpositive curvature having one geodesic along which the curvature is zero has ideal triangles of infinite area.


Sturmian comparison theory for impulsive differential inequalities and equations


Cheng's eigenvalue comparison theory assumes bounds on the curvature of the manifold and then compares this eigenvalue to the eigenvalue of a ball in a constant curvature space form.


This comparison theory, like Cheng's theorem, remains valid for large tubes that are not homotopic to the middle leaf closure and that may have irregular boundaries.


Furthermore, within comparison theory, social comparison had the largest effect on incomesatisfaction, closely followed by income needed (personenvironment fit theory), and income deserved (equity theory) with the smallest effect.


Unifying Livability and Comparison Theory: CrossNational TimeSeries Analysis of LifeSatisfaction


Continuity of the range projection determines finiteness of the algebra in Murrayvon Neumann comparison theory.


Also, based on social comparison theory and the convoy model, a discrepancy in threat appraisal between patient and spouse may create social constraints.


This research examines social factors implicated by social comparison theory to be involved in the setting of task performance goals.


The results and implications of this study are discussed within the context of social comparison theory and the betterthanaverage effect.


Based on social comparison theory and equity theory, the first aim of this study was to examine the hypothesis that framing is affected not only by previous success or failure, but also by comparisons with relevant others' outcomes as well.


The use of "failure models": An application of social comparison theory to changing maladaptive attitudes


We note that this pattern of results is consistent with the comparison theory, and we offer an explanation of the effects of corrections.


The results were interpreted within the context of social comparison theory.


This study examined the implications for social comparison theory of the proposition that women have lower selfconfidence than men when there is a socially defined standard of performance.


Based on suggestions by Martin (1989) and social comparison theory, we examined the role that sources of career information (e.g., professors, family) play in shaping college students' salary expectations.


In a study involving 109 UCLA female undergraduates, we examined the effectiveness of an intervention that was based on downward social comparison theory and the selection of alternative comparison dimensions.


Computational methods and comparison theory enable, when combined, an enhanced capability for counting the number of solutions in combustion equations.
