This article investigates the intense debate on the figure of Chinese public intellectuals, which has gained increasing importance, both inside and outside Mainland China, during the last decade. The climax was reached in ...
Despite intensive research in the area of network connectivity, there is an important category of problems that remain unsolved: how to measure the quality of connectivity of a wireless multi-hop network which has a realistic ...
Zinc hydroxide acetate dihydrate, Zn5(OH)8(CH 3CO2)2·2H2O, reacts in ethanol at room temperature to yield a mixture of zinc oxide and anhydrous zinc acetate. The process is driven by dehydration of the starting salt. ...
Abstract: Recent research has proposed Neo-Piagetian theory as a useful way of describing the cognitive development of novice programmers. Neo-Piagetian theory may also be a useful way to classify materials used in learning ...
Taking the reciprocal of the golden ratio and summing its non-negative integer powers, we obtain a series that converges. We then consider series obtained by striking out terms of this series, proving key theorems about ...

While the risk return trade-off theory suggests a positive relationship between the expected return and the conditional volatility, the volatility feedback theory implies a channel that allows the conditional volatility ...
SiCp/Zn-22 wt% Al metal matrix composites of different particulate sizes have been prepared and tensile tested at 250°C at various strain rates. Scheduled thermomechanical treatment of structural refinement was employed ...
The paper discusses various roles that the growth optimal portfolio (GOP) plays in finance. For the case of a continuous market we show how the GOP can be interpreted as a fundamental building block in financial market ...

Variously used to describe a branch of knowledge, a system of rules of conduct or a method of practice, or a character trait associated with rigorous and controlled behaviour, the term a??disciplinea?? is both widespread ...
The use of models is increasing in software engineering, especially within the MDE initiative. Models are usually communicated by visualizing them, typically using a graphical modelling language. The architecture commonly ...

Goldreich (ECCC 2000) suggested a simple construction of a candidate one-way function f: {0, 1} n → {0, 1} m where each bit of output is a fixed predicate P of a constant number d of (random) input bits. We investigate the ...
A financial market model where agents trade using realistic combinations of simple (i.e., finite combinations of buy-and-hold) no-short-sales strategies is considered. Minimal assumptions are made on the discounted asset-price ...
We analyze the exact symbol error probability (SEP) of cooperative diversity with opportunistic amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying. The benefit of this opportunism to the SEP is assessed by comparing with maximal ratio ...
