The first international conference organized in Vietnam, which
concerns theoretical computer science, was the ICOMIDC Symposium
on Mathematics of Computation, held in Ho Chi Minh
City in 1988. For the last years great developments have been
made in this areas. Therefore, it had become necessary to organize
in Vietnam another international conference in this field,
which would enable Vietnamese scientists, especially young people,
to update the knowledge, to make contacts, to exchange
ideas and experiences with leading experts all over the world....
We continue our investigation of international stock returns with a comprehensive
coverage of the smaller stock exchanges around the world. Panel A of Table 6 lists the
individual results for 18 additional countries, which include most remaining sizable stock
exchanges in the world. The available return series for these countries vary in length,
with the longest series starting in 1971 and the shortest series starting in 1982. An
examination of Panel A reveals that the lunar-cycle effect found for the G-7 countries is
pervasive around the world.
