By incorporating the proper boundary conditions, we analytically derive the impulse response (or “Green’s function”) of a current-sensing spin detector. We also compare this result to a Monte Carlo simulation (which automatically takes the proper boundary condition into account) and an empirical spin transit time distribution obtained from experimental spin precession measurements. In the strong drift-dominated transport regime, this spin current impulse response can be approximated by multiplying the spin density impulse response by the average drift velocity. However, in weak drift fields, large modeling errors up to a factor of 3 in most-probable spin transit time can be incurred unless the full spin current Green’s function is used.

    Model averaging (MA) has been proposed as a method of accommodating model uncertainty when estimating risk. Although the use of MA is inherently appealing, little is known about its performance using general modeling conditions. We investigate the use of MA for estimating excess risk using a...

    The literature on causality takes contradictory stands on the direction of causal relationships based on whether one uses temporally aggregated or systematically sampled data. As an example, using the relationship between a nominal target and the instrument used to achieve it, we show that one...
