We investigate fullscale shortestderivation parsing (SDP), wherein the parser selects an analysis built from the fewest number of training fragments. Shortest derivation parsing exhibits an unusual range of behaviors. At one extreme, in the fully unpruned case, it is neither fast nor accurate. At the other extreme, when pruned with a coarse unlexicalized PCFG, the shortest derivation criterion becomes both fast and surprisingly effective, rivaling more complex weightedfragment approaches.

Risk analysis for well known, well documented and steadystate systems (or stable phenomena) can be performed by methods of statistical analysis of available data. These include, for example, maximum likelihood estimations, and analyses of variance and correlations. More generally, these methods require a projection in the future of risk estimates based on a sufficient sample,

When you finish this chapter, you should be able to: Discuss the general idea of analysis of variance, discuss the general idea of analysis of variance, conduct a test of hypothesis to determine whether the variances of two populations are equal, organize data into a oneway and a twoway ANOVA table.

This chapter explores how budgets can be adjusted so that meaningful comparisons to actual costs can be made. This chapter include objectives: Prepare a flexible budget, prepare a report showing activity variances, prepare a report showing revenue and spending variances, prepare a performance report that combines activity variances and revenue and spending variances, prepare a flexible budget with more than one cost driver, understand common errors made in preparing performance reports based on budgets and actual results.

Lecture Managerial accounting (14/e)  Chapter 10: Standard costs and operating performance measures
This chapter extends our study of management control by explaining how standard costs are used by managers to control costs. It demonstrates how to compute direct materials, direct labor, and variable overhead variances. The chapter also defines some nonfinancial performance measures that are frequently used by companies.

Traditionally supply chain management has meant factories, assembly lines, warehouses, transportation vehicles, and time sheets. Modern supply chain management is a highly complex, multidimensional problem set with virtually endless number of variables for optimization. An Internet enabled supply chain may have justintime delivery, precise inventory visibility, and uptotheminute distributiontracking capabilities.

15 Budgetary Control. In this chapter, we describe the budgetary control that takes place in organizations through the techniques of ﬂexible budgets and variance analysis. However, we caution against variance analysis in circumstances where this could conﬂict with more broadly based improvement strategies within the business.

Stable laws { also called stable or Levystable { are a rich family of probability distributions that allow skewness and heavy tails and have many interesting mathematical properties. They appear in the context of the Generalized Central Limit Theorem which states that the only possible nontrivial limit of normalized sums of independent identically distributed variables is stable. The Standard Central Limit Theorem states that the limit of normalized sums of independent identically distributed terms with nite variance is Gaussian (stable with = 2).

Single period market models are the most elementary market models. Only a single period is considered. The beginning of the period is usually denoted by the time t = 0 and the end of the period by time t = 1. At time t = 0 stock prices, bond prices,possibly prices of other financial assets or specific financial values are recorded and the financial agent can choose his investment, often a portfolio of stocks and bond. At time t = 1 prices are recorded again and the financial agent obtains a payoff corresponding to the value of his portfolio at time t = 1....

Providence City acquired its power plant from a private company on June 1. No receivables were acquired with the purchase. Therefore, total accounts receivable on June 1 had a zero balance. Providence plans to bill customers in the month following the month of sale, and 80% of the resulting billings will be collected during the billing month. 90% of the remaining balance should be collectable in the next following month. The remaining uncollectible amounts will relate to citizens who have moved away. Such amounts are never expected to be collected and will be written off....

Second, information should be thought of as better if it reduces the uncertainty surrounding some future cost or benefit. For instance, future liabilities are inherently uncertain. Information that can narrow the variance on estimates of those uncertain liabilities should be considered better information. Reduced variance is particularly valuable when decisionmakers are riskaverse, since a reduction in variance alone can lead to different decisions when there is risk aversion.

Selected financial information for each segment follows: Rank order the three segments based on “margin,” “turnover,” and “return on investment.” How is it possible that the rankings differ based on which evaluative model is used?

Carpet Clean manufactures a chemical carpet cleaner. The company was formed during the current year. As a result, there was no beginning inventory. Management is evaluating performance and inventory management issues, and desires to know both net income and ending inventory under generally accepted accounting principles (absorption costing) as well as variable costing methods. Relevant facts are as follows:

Canadian Autoparts manufactures and sells alternators. Canadian has been producing and selling approximately 1,500,000 units per year. Each units sells for $350, and there are no variable selling, general, or administrative costs. The company has been approached by a foreign supplier who wishes to provide an alternator component for $45 per unit. Total annual manufacturing costs, including the alternator component, is as follows:

In finance, there are areas where formulas tend to get involved. Sometimes it may be easier to follow an exact computer routine. I have made some C++ subroutines that implements common algoritms in finance. Typical examples are option/derivatives pricing, term structure calculations, mean variance analysis. These routines are presented together with a good deal of explanations and examples of use, but it is by no means a complete "book" with all the answers and explanations.
