For nearly 20 years, since the emergence of PCs, Lotus 1-2-3, and Microsoft Excel in the 1980’s,
spreadsheet models have been the dominant vehicles for finance professionals in the business world to
implement their financial knowledge. Yet even today, most Corporate Finance textbooks rely on
calculators as the primary tool and have little (if any) coverage of how to build spreadsheet models. This
book fills that gap. It teaches students how to build financial models in Excel.
The first all-inclusive guidebook for designing, building, and implementing a sturdy core valuation/projection model
In today’s no-room-for-error corporate finance market, precise and effective financial modeling is essential for both determining a company’s current value and projecting its future performance. Yet few books have explained how to build models that accurately interpret a company’s financial statement, while none have focused on projection models.

This dissertation addresses how the weather derivative hedges
the corporate risk, how to price the indexed derivative as an exotic
derivative instrument, and the implications of basis risk. These topics
are summarized in an expanded uncertainty model. Under this
framework, different hedging instruments for studying the optimal
hedging portfolios are compared.
This volume grew out of a study group on corporate governance at the Research
Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI) in 2002. The project was
motivated by a concern to take stock of the changes underway in corporate
governance in Japan. Our feeling was that the conventional understanding about
the Japanese Wrm was increasingly becoming outdated.

There is a bustling atmosphere in the headquarters of the globally active Confusio
Corporation. Everything seems to be just fine. Yet, there is a bad atmosphere in
the precious wood-paneled conference room of the managing director Paul Peppy.
Peppy has drummed together his top managers from all important branch offices; a
hard and uncompromising crackdown is urgently required! Concerning the topic of
the crisis summit, he has intentionally left the participants in the dark.
THREE ESSAYS ON FINANCIAL DISTRESS AND CORPORATE CONTROL Chapter One develops this idea and implements tests of the hypothesis that school
effectiveness is an important determinant of residential choices among local-monopoly
school districts. I model a Tiebout-style housing market in which house prices ration
access to desirable schools, which may be desirable either because they are particularly
effective or because they enroll a desirable set of students.

The Institute of Medicine convened the Clinical Research Roundtable (CRR) in early 2000 to provide
a forum for stakeholders to discuss approaches to resolving both acute and long-term issues affecting
the Clinical Research Enterprise. It strives to enhance mutual understanding of clinical research
between the scientific community and the general public, while improving the public’s understanding of
and participation in clinical studies.
This paper discusses the task of formulating a model of linguistic performance and proposes an approach toward this goal that is oriented toward an embodiment of the model as a digital-computer program. The methodology of current linguistic theory is criticized for several of its features that render it inapplicable to a realistic model of performance, and remedies for these deficiencies are proposed.
However, less attention has
been paid to smaller emerging markets, especially in the GCC countries where share dealing
is a relatively recent phenomenon. Using VAR models and cointegration tests, Hammoudeh
and Eleisa (2004) show that there is a bidirectional relationship between Saudi stock returns
and oil price changes. The findings also suggest that the other GCC markets are not directly
linked to oil prices and are less dependent on oil exports and are more influenced by domestic
factors. Bashar (2006) uses VAR analysis to study the effect of oil price changes on GCC....

The source model is used to estimate the generative probability of a word sequence, in which each word belongs to one word type. For each word type, a channel model is used to estimate the generative probability of a character string given the word type. So there are multiple channel models. We shall show in this paper that our models provide a statistical framework to corporate a wide variety linguistic knowledge and statistical models in a unified way. We evaluate the performance of our system using an annotated test set. ...
