INEQUALITY AND THE DISTRIBUTION OF HUMAN CAPITAL In the absence of parental sorting on school effectiveness, there is little theoretical
support for the claim that Tiebout choice markets create incentives for school administrators
to exert greater effort to raise student performance.
The book MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences is designed to help under-
graduate and PhD students, postdocs, and professionals to ﬁ nd quick solu-
tions for common problems in data analysis in earth sciences. The book
provides a minimum amount of theoretical background, but then tries to
teach the application of all methods by examples. The software MATLAB
is used since it provides numerous ready-to-use algorithms for most meth-
ods of data analysis, but also gives the opportunity to modify and expand
the existing routines and even develop new software.
We analyze estimation methods for DataOriented Parsing, as well as the theoretical criteria used to evaluate them. We show that all current estimation methods are inconsistent in the “weight-distribution test”, and argue that these results force us to rethink both the methods proposed and the criteria used.
With the intention of indicating some temporal/event-theoretic characteristics of d i s t r i b u t i v e clauses, a generalisation is made over distributives and clauses marked for iterative aspect: two kinds of semantic phenomena which have normally been confined to separate theoretical domains. It is shown that in particular, both give rise to an 'inferential set construction' problem.
This thesis has been done in an effort to investigate how euphemism is
translated from English into Vietnamese in translated works as well as to
find out what are the main approaches taken by translators in translating
euphemism from English into Vietnamese. A collection of samples taken
from literary works written in English and their Vietnamese versions have
been analyzed to explore ways in which euphemisms are transferred.
Besides, quantitative analyses have also been carried out to show
distribution of ways of translating, on the basis of which to identify
A philosophical study of morality is very different from a sociological or anthropological
study, or a study from the perspective of biology or psychology. One
important difference is that in moral philosophy we do not distance ourselves
from our own moral views in the way we would if we were engaged in a study
of one of these other kinds. We do not take the fact that people, including ourselves,
have moral views as merely a datum to be explained.
In writing this book the author has been primarily concerned with the presentation
of the basic essentials of power-system operation and analysis to students in the
final year of first degree courses at universities and colleges of technology. The
emphasis is on the consideration of the system as a whole rather than on the engineering
details of its constituents, and the treatment presented is aimed at practical
conditions and situations rather than theoretical nicety.
In our quest to elucidate the origin of the universe and the formation of
galaxies, particularly that of the Milky Way in which we live, astounding
progress has been made in recent years through observational and theoretical
studies. Not only have gigantic surveys covering a large fraction of the sky
brought statistics enlightening evolutionary paths of galaxies, but powerful
instruments, such as radio interferometers and ground- and space-based optical/
infrared telescopes, have been able to map individual objects with high
sensitivity and spatial resolution.
The chapter concludes with a
discussion on the implications of all these changes for the veterinary sector and offers some
suggestions for future research. Thus, the authors lay the theoretical foundation for future
empirical work in this field by debating some key concepts and generating hypotheses for
Various books on data analysis in earth sciences have been published during
the last ten years, such as Statistics and Data Analysis in Geology by JC Davis,
Introduction to Geological Data Analysis by ARH Swan and M Sandilands,
Data Analysis in the Earth Sciences Using MATLAB® by GV Middleton or
Statistics of Earth Science Data by G Borradaile.
This monograph is an “offspring” of an earlier textbook on Environmental Economics
which was published in 2002. It is, however, not just an update or a simple
translation of the former German version. Rather, this book includes topics, which
played no significant role in public opinion some 10 years ago.
Climate change is one of the cross-border environmental issues which has substantially
gained importance and public attention over the last decade.
This monograph is about managing our financial wealth in the context of
having both human and financial capital. The portfolio that works best tends to
hold stocks and bonds as well as insurance products. We are attempting to put these
decisions together in a single framework. Thus, we are trying to provide a theoretical
foundation—a framework—and practical solutions for developing investment
advice for individual investors throughout their lives.
Developments in, and availability of, new production technologies which have
reduced the cost and time necessary to make illegal copies of goods have played a
part in this growth. This has contributed to growth in markets for counterfeit goods as
the amount and range of products create increased profits for those involved in this
activity (Savona and Mignone, 2004).
The purpose of this monograph is to formulate a quantitative and self-consistent theoretical
approach to wave–particle interactions occurring in space plasmas, and present
a logical development of the subject. In the Earth’s magnetosphere, Nature has given
us a plasma laboratory that is accessible to observations made by radio, magnetic and
electric instruments on the ground, and a great variety of instruments aboard rockets
and Earth-orbiting satellites. Spacecraft are making similar observations in the more
distant solar system.
This book was written for graduate students and researchers in statistics and the
social sciences. Our intent in writing the book was to bridge the gap between
recent theoretical developments in statistics and the application of these methods
to ordinal data. Ordinal data are the most common form of data acquired in the
social sciences, but the analysis of such data is generally performed without regard
to their ordinal nature.
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....

In recognition of the fact that the potential for release of particulate
plutonium and transplutonium alpha-emitting elements from nuclear
power generation facilities poses questions concerning spatial distribution
of dose and the resultant biological effects, the NCRP initiated a
new NCRP activity concerned with alpha-emitting particles in lungs.
It was not intended that a complete review of the subject would be prepared.
