  • The process which has resulted in this book began many decades ago when, as an undergraduate student, I found myself asking the question, ‘What did the Romans think they were doing when they created the Roman Empire?’ For many years this question lurked in the background of my thoughts as I worked on Roman history more generally and on Roman Spain in particular, not least because itwas not clear tome howsuch a questionmight be answered.What follows is, I hope, if not an answer, at least a contribution towards one.

  • We explore how active learning with Support Vector Machines works well for a non-trivial task in natural language processing. We use Japanese word segmentation as a test case. In particular, we discuss how the size of a pool affects the learning curve. It is found that in the early stage of training with a larger pool, more labeled examples are required to achieve a given level of accuracy than those with a smaller pool. In addition, we propose a novel technique to use a large number of unlabeled examples effectively by adding them gradually to a pool. ...

  • Stealing Empire poses the question, "What possibilities for agency exist in the age of corporate globalisation?" Using the work of Antonio Negri and Michael Hardt as a point of entry, Adam Haupt delves into varied terrain to locate answers in this ground-breaking inquiry. He explores arguments about copyright via peer-to-peer (P2P) platforms such as Napster, free speech struggles, debates about access to information and open content licenses, and develops a politically incisive analysis of counterdiscourses produced by South African hip-hop artists.

  • A general overview of the literature focusing on the origins of losses, discussing the intertemporal solvency of central banks and modelling their balance sheets has been presented already in Cincibuch et al. (2008; 2009). Many useful general references can also be found in a recently published book edited by Milton and Sinclair (2011). In the present paper, we thus limit ourselves to reviewing specifically those papers that have explicitly discussed the link from central bank finances to policy pursuit, with an emphasis on empirical work.

  • he Theory of the Gene. The book summarizes theoretical conclusions that Morgan has drawn from more than fifteen years of empirical work. The geneticist had initially set out to challenge Mendel’s principles of heredity, but he writes that his work on the chromosomal transmission of genetic characteristics in the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster, has instead confirmed them. His studies have, in addition, begun to identify the physiological bases of observed patterns of genetic inheritance.

  • The concept of polyphony was incorporated by many anthropologists thanks to Mikhail Bakhtin’s work. Analyzing Dostoevsky’s literature, Bakhtin conclusion was the following: he was the first to multiply any character; so the relationship between hero and author was decentralized. Before him, the writing was a monological projection of the author’s psychology and style on the hero and, consequently, the making peripheral all the other characters.

  • This book weaves strands of research that date back more than 20 years, to approximately 1990–1991. Although I worked at a futures commission merchant (that is, a brokerage firm) while in graduate school, that work involved financial futures exclusively. Deciding to leave that business in mid-October 1987 (thereby causing the 1987 crash), first for a stint in litigation support consulting and then on to academia at the Michigan Business School, I worked on research completely unrelated to futures markets.

  • Adaptive filtering can be used to characterize unknown systems in time-variant environments. The main objective of this approach is to meet a difficult comprise: maximum convergence speed with maximum accuracy. Each application requires a certain approach which determines the filter structure, the cost function to minimize the estimation error, the adaptive algorithm, and other parameters; and each selection involves certain cost in computational terms, that in any case should consume less time than the time required by the application working in real-time....

Research in the OECD countries consistently shows that job growth in the entrepreneurial sector is substantially higher than it is among established (corporate) incumbents (Audretsch and Thurik, 2001). More recently, the international buzz about entrepreneurship has become even more pronounced with the explosion of new technology, rise in the availability and use of equity capital and breaking down of economic and trade barriers.

  • To a lesser extent, I hear from salespeople who insist that they’re doing great with cold calling. Not surprisingly, however, none of them can document their claims with sales reports or actual numbers. Having said that, I’m sure some salespeople out there are actually succeeding by cold calling.
