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.

This book reports initial efforts in providing some useful extensions in financial
modeling; further work is necessary to complete the research agenda.
The demonstrated extensions in this book in the computation and modeling
of optimal control in finance have shown the need and potential for further
areas of study in financial modeling. Potentials are in both the mathematical
structure and computational aspects of dynamic optimization. There are needs
for more organized and coordinated computational approaches.
Environmental Land Use Planning brings together leading scholars in the field of environmental problem solving to examine environmental problems and effects on land uses; analytical methods and tools in the field; and the role of governments, community grants and tradable permits in environmental planning. The chapters are based on empirical research from countries around the globe including Canada, USA, China, Nigeria, Germany, Serbia, Venezuela, and Brazil.
The JICA-assisted “The Study on Urban Transport Master Plan and Feasibility Study in Ho Chi Minh Metropolitan Area” was conducted with the following main objectives: Formulation of a comprehensive Master Plan up to 2010 and 2020 for the urban transport system in the HCM metropolitan area, and a Short-term Action Plan up to 2005; conduct of feasibility studies on selected priority projects; and conduct of technology transfer on database development, modeling, and plan formulation to the Vietnamese counterpart staff during the course of the study.
In the last few years, we witnessed a significant increase in the importance of spatial
planning as a part of the social process and development of affected regions in
developed countries. Using advanced information technologies for spatial planning is
suitable on the level of municipalities, towns, regions and countries.
Spatial planning is a considerable part of very rapidly developing geosciences.
PLANNING DEVELOPMENT: THE STATE, GLOBALIZATION, AND SHIFTING LOCUS OF PLANNING There are two obvious ways to correct Hoxbys specification for this bias. First, in
the spirit of so-called Heckman corrections (Heckman, 1979; Card and Payne, 2002), one
can control directly for functions of the MSA private enrollment rate in models for public
Using the economic model of demand, supply, and integration, the authors discuss the elements that shape the demand when attempting to define strategic direction and potential investment strategies in the next 15 to 20 years. There is an emphasis on nonmateriel solutions in the supplying of new ideas, as well on allowing new concepts to be shared throughout the Air Force. The integration process f......

Despite the U.S. armed forces’ historical role as a model for racial integration and decades of Department of Defense (DoD) efforts to promote racial and ethnic diversity, many groups are still underrepresented within the department, especially among DoD’s active duty and civilian leadership. This is a particularly important issue for DoD because many military leaders believe that maintaining a diverse workforce is critical for the department’s national security mission. This report discusses the initial steps that DoD should take in developing a department-wide plan to achie...
This report is in response to a request from the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill
Trustee Council to review the Gulf of Alaska Ecosystem Monitoring and
Research Program (GEM). To ensure that the GEM program is based on a
science plan that is robust, far-reaching, and scientifically sound, the
Trustee Council asked the National Academies to serve as an independent
advisor. The Academies appointed a special committee and charged
it to review the scope and content of the program as it evolved.
his report extends research on using scenarios for strategic planning, with experiments in what can be called massive scenario generation (MSG), a computationally intensive technique that seeks to combine virtues of human- and model-based exploration of
We present a natural language generation approach which models, exploits, and manipulates the non-linguistic context in situated communication, using techniques from AI planning. We show how to generate instructions which deliberately guide the hearer to a location that is convenient for the generation of simple referring expressions, and how to generate referring expressions with context-dependent adjectives.
The CAPRI version used for this study is standard comparative-static, i.e. adjustment costs
are not considered and policy simulations reveal a situation where dairy farmers were given
time to adjust their fixed factors to the new policy framework. By incorporating an
econometric supply module for the most representative dairy farms in the EU, the update of
the CAPRI model allows for a better representation of the dairy sector, as additional
information on milk quota rents and price supply elasticities are now explicitly introduced for
dairy products. ...
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 presents an enhanced model of plan-based dialogue understanding. Most plan-based dialogue understanding models derived from [Litman and Allen, 1987] assume that the dialogue speakers have access to the same domain plan library, and that the active domain plans are shared by the two speakers. We call these features shared domain plan constraints.
In modeling the structure of task-related discourse using plans, it is important to distinguish between plans that the agent has adopted and is pursuing and those that are only being considered and explored, since the kinds of utterances arising from a particular domain plan and the patterns of reference to domain plans and movement within the plan tree are quite different in the two cases.
