Accepted for publication, but not be in print until spring 2016. Very early draft versions are available on Philica, SSRN, and Cogprints. The latest draft prior to copyright restriction can be obtained from arXiv.
There is also a shorter and slightly reorganized version of this paper available at IEET. It more closely resembles the earlier drafts mentioned above. I encourage readers to go for the latest possible draft frankly, preferably the to-print version once it is available.
For the time being, I have not duplicated the various versions of this paper in HTML here, unlike the other articles offered on this site. To see the publicly available version, please download the paper from arXiv. To see the final version, you will have to obtain it from the journal (to be named after publication). Alternatively, feel free to email me directly for a personal copy.
I would really like to hear what people think of this. If you prefer private feedback, you can email me at email@example.com. Alternatively, the following form and comment section is available.
