Table S2. Fractional regression of desirability on individual attributes—selected coefficients. References 33 — Romantic courtship is often described as taking place in a dating market where men and women compete for mates, but the detailed structure and dynamics of dating markets have historically been difficult to quantify for lack of suitable data. In recent years, however, the advent and vigorous growth of the online dating industry has provided a rich new source of information on mate pursuit.
We present an empirical analysis of heterosexual dating markets in four large U. We show that competition for mates creates a pronounced hierarchy of desirability that correlates strongly with user demographics and is remarkably consistent across cities. We also find that the probability of receiving a response to an advance drops markedly with increasing difference in desirability between the pursuer and the pursued.
It is a common observation that marriage or dating partners strongly resemble one another in terms of age, education, physical attractiveness, attitudes, and a host of other characteristics 1. One possible explanation for this is the matching hypothesis, which suggests that men and women pursue partners who resemble themselves. This in turn implies that people differ in their opinions about what constitutes a desirable partner or at least about who is worth pursuing.
At the other extreme, and more in line with biological studies of mate selection 2 — 4 , lies the competition hypothesis, which assumes that there is consensus about what constitutes a desirable partner and that mate seekers, regardless of their own qualifications, pursue those partners who are universally recognized as most desirable 5 — 8. Paradoxically, this can also produce couples who resemble one another in terms of desirability, as the most desirable partners pair off with one another, followed by the next most desirable, and so on.
To the extent that desirability correlates with individual attributes, the matching and competition hypotheses can, as a result, produce similar equilibrium patterns of mixing 5 , 9 ,

I have worked in lots of areas of PV research, from making the cells to monitoring and analysing PV systems and investigating the environmental impact of making and using PV devices. Firstly, the range of topics covered during the week allows me to keep up with the current advances in a variety of areas.
Secondly, it is an opportunity to catch up with friends and colleagues and make new contacts for the future. I encourage everyone to take this opportunity to explore some topics outside their normal research area — it may help you identify future challenges and interests for your research.

You will join delegates from across the globe at a gathering that offers us the opportunity to step beyond our regular networks and meet colleagues from around the world while we present, listen to and discuss the latest work in Automatic Control. To date, the triennial congress has operated on two levels — to promote dialogue and debate within the profession, and to promote the development of the profession within the wider engineering and related communities.
We hope to achieve both objectives at the congress by addressing all the topics covered by the IFAC Technical Board , and by providing delegates with opportunities to interact with funding agencies and potential industrial employers. IFAC in Cape Town will provide the perfect environment in which to not only stretch yourself intellectually, but to develop as an academic or practitioner and extend the networks that will support you in your future career and research ventures.
Apart from an interesting and stimulating programme there will of course be time to explore beautiful Cape Town! Take the opportunity for shopping at the nearby Waterfront, a trip by cable car up Table Mountain, visit the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, or a visit to a winery for wine tasting.
