Abstract Duality Pairs in Analysis by Charles Swartz
Publication Date: 2017-11-01
Price : $118
The book presents a theory of abstract duality pairs which arises by replacing the scalar field by an Abelian topological group in the theory of dual pair of vector spaces. Examples of abstract duality pairs are vector valued series, spaces of vector valued measures, spaces of vector valued integrable functions, spaces of linear operators and vector valued sequence spaces. These examples give rise to numerous applications such as abstract versions of the Orlicz-Pettis Theorem on subseries convergent series, the Uniform Boundedness Principle, the Banach-Steinhaus Theorem, the Nikodym Convergence theorems and the Vitali-Hahn-Saks Theorem from measure theory and the Hahn-Schur Theorem from summability. There are no books on the current market which cover the material in this book. Readers will find interesting functional analysis and the many applications to various topics in real analysis.

Diagnostics for a Globalized World by Sten A. O. Thore; Ruzanna Tarverdyan
Publication Date: 2015-01-01
Price : $118
How do you gauge the accomplishments of policy and its failures? While a number of nations are successful in optimizing a socio-economic welfare function, others are woefully falling short of the optimal frontier. Diagnostics for a Globalized World proposes a reformulation of the inherited theory of economic and social policy (codified in the 1950s by Jan Tinbergen) to find a diagnostic tool in measuring the effectiveness of economic and social policy. Using a logarithmic adaptation of data envelopment analysis, the authors explain how to rank the attainment of nations of multidimensional goals such as those expressed by the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and upcoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Eu-Asia and the Re-Polarization of the Global Economic Arena by Lars Oxelheim
Publication Date: 2012-06-19
Price : $168
At the end of the 1980s, a tri-polar world comprising the US, EU and Japan emerged. However, the economic turbulence of the early 21st century has destabilized this order, and the rise of other Asian powers has implications for the formation of a new economic configuration.This book discusses the probability of the different tentative global economic power balances to emerge, as well as the different contestants: the EU, China and Japan, among others.Organized into three sections, the first part addresses general and trend-wise developments with relevance to the outcome of the re-polarization process. Subsequently, three chapters focus on developments in China, India and Japan. Finally, special issues such as climate policies, corporate governance, social reforms and cross-border economic alliances are considered in greater detail, in relation to their implications for the outcome of the re-polarization process.
Handbook of Heavy-Tailed Distributions in Asset Management and Risk Management by Stoyan Stoyanov (Editor); Frank J. Fabozzi (Editor); Michele Leonardo Bianchi (Editor); Gian Luca Tassinari (Editor); Sergio Focardi (Editor)
Publication Date: 2019-05-22
Price : $188
The study of heavy-tailed distributions allows researchers to represent phenomena that occasionally exhibit very large deviations from the mean. The dynamics underlying these phenomena is an interesting theoretical subject, but the study of their statistical properties is in itself a very useful endeavor from the point of view of managing assets and controlling risk. In this book, the authors are primarily concerned with the statistical properties of heavy-tailed distributions and with the processes that exhibit jumps. A detailed overview with a Matlab implementation of heavy-tailed models applied in asset management and risk managements is presented. The book is not intended as a theoretical treatise on probability or statistics, but as a tool to understand the main concepts regarding heavy-tailed random variables and processes as applied to real-world applications in finance. Accordingly, the authors review approaches and methodologies whose realization will be useful for developing new methods for forecasting of financial variables where extreme events are not treated as anomalies, but as intrinsic parts of the economic process.

Value-Based Management of the Rising Sun by Kanji Miyamoto (Editor); Kazuki Hamada (Editor); Gunyung Lee (Editor); Takayuki Asada (Editor)
Publication Date: 2006-07-01
Price : $175
"Question asking is an imperative part of the learning process. We don t just answer questions but need to devise questions to ask that are relevant and meaningful to the discussion and the course as a whole. Moreover, the way you ask, listen to and respond to student questions provides a model, in turn, for students to emulate. Students need to learn how to ask questions to learn how to learn, to learn how to be critical and engage analytically with the material they are studying. Good modeling results not only in better class discussion, but also in better learners". THIS EFFORT SHOWS THE WAYS IN WHICH TEACHERS ASK QUESTIONS. TYPES OF QUESTIONS, TECHNIQUES AND STRATEGIES, PURPOSES OF QUESTIONS, LEVEL OF QUESTIONS, ALSO REFLECTS THE SOCRATIC-QUETIONING STRATEGIES, SUGGEST AND GUIDE FOR BAD AND GOOD QUESTIONS, IT S CLEARLY SUMMARIZE THE OBSERVATION THAT FOUND DURING MY EXPERIENCE, AND SHOWS THE WAYS THAT TEACHER IMPROVE THEIR TAECHING AND HOW TO QUESTION AND FARULATE THEIR QUESTIONS IN ORDER TO BE ACCEPTEDABLE FOR THEIR STUDENTS.
