This paper considers Cournot oligopolies with product differentiation when the firms have inexact knowledge of the price functions and there are random time lags in obtaining and implementing information on the firms' own ...
This note considers possible arrangements of the sectors of a generalised dartboard. The sum of the pth powers of the absolute differences of the numbers on adjacent sectors is introduced as a penalty cost function and a ...
Deadlock problems of zone-control uni-directional automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) are discussed in this paper. A directed graph is de® ned to model the vehicle ¯ ows, to identify distinct vehicle ¯ ows, to represent ...
This paper addresses the problem of decentralized robust stabilization and control for a class of uncertain Markov jump parameter systems. Control is via output feedback and knowledge of the discrete Markov state. It is ...
The local Hurst exponent, a measure employed to detect the presence of dependence in a time series, may also be used to investigate the source of intraday variation observed in the returns in foreign exchange markets. Given ...
We show that maximum likelihood weighted kernel density estimation offers a unified approach to density estimation and nonparametric inferences. For density estimation, the approach is a generalisation of the standard ...
We define a multiplicative arithmetic function D by assigning D(p a) = apa-1, when p is a prime and a is a positive integer, and, for n ≥ 1, we set D0(n) = n and Dk(n) = D(D k-1(n)) when k ≥ 1. We term {Dk(n)}k=0∞ the ...
This paper presents a meshless Galerkin level-set method (MGLSM) for shape and topology optimization of compliant mechanisms of geometrically nonlinear structures. The design boundary of the mechanism is implicitly described ...
Hypoglycemia or low blood glucose is dangerous and can result in unconsciousness, seizures and even death for Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) patients. Based on the T1DM patients' physiological parameters, corrected QT ...
We present a form of the discrete dipole approximation for electromagnetic scattering computations in time domain. We show that the introduction of complex frequencies, through the Laplace transform, significantly improves ...
We show that an arbitrary basis of a multipartite quantum state space consisting of K distant parties such that the kth party has local dimension d(k) always contains at least N=Sigma(K)(k=1)(d(k)-1)+1 members that are ...
Task allocation and motion coordination are the main factors that should be consi-dered in the coordination of multiple autonomous vehicles in material handling systems. Presently, these factors are handled in different ...
The market maker plays an important role in price formation, but his/her behavior and stabilizing impact on the market are relatively unclear, in particular in speculative markets. This paper develops a financial market ...

By employing exhaustive lists of large firms in European countries, we show that the upper-tail of the distribution of firm size can be fitted with a power-law (ParetoZipf law), and that in this region the growth rate of ...
We derive a frequency-domain-based approach for radiation from double-heterostructure cavity (DHC) modes. We use this to compute the quality factors and radiation patterns of DHC modes. The semianalytic nature of our method ...
Understanding the long term relationship between the yields afrisky and riskless bonds is a critical tusk for portfolio managers and policy makers. This study specifies an equilibrium correction model of the credit spreads ...
A three-dimensional dynamic interaction model is developed for a LIM (linear induction motor) train and elevated bridge system, which is composed of a LIM-driven vehicle submodel and a finite element bridge submodel. Each ...
