Major Models and Experience of American and British County Governance  [cached]
Miao Yi,Wang Juqin
Research Journal of Applied Sciences, Engineering and Technology , 2012,
Abstract: This study proposes the major models and experience of American and British county governance. We chooses America and Britain, developed countries where county governance is relatively mature, as samples for reference to summarize their major county governance models. Though the two countries don’t have many counties, the standard of their county governance is relatively high, which can provide beneficial reference for China’s selection and improvement of county governance models.
Investment, Macroeconomic Stability and Growth: The Latin American Experience Investment, Macroeconomic Stability and Growth: The Latin American Experience
Vittorio Corbo,Patricio Rojas
Revista de Análisis Económico (RAE) , 1993,
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore the role of factor accumulation, economic policies, and economic and political uncertainties on growth performance of Latin American countries in the last three decades. We extend the work of Corbo and Rojas (1992) in two directions suggested by recent work in this area. First, we extend the model by considering term of trade effects and an additional measure of distortion, the black marker premium. Second, we provide further evidence of the channels through which economic policies affect growth by endogenizing the investment rate. The main conclusions are that the terms of trade affect growth directly, and indirectly through its effect in the investment rate: the black market premium is more a measure of macroeconomic instability than of the degree of oppenness; and stability of economic policies can affect growth directly through the law of motion for growth and indirectly through investment rates. Investment, Macroeconomic Stability and Growth: The Latin American Experience
Resolution of the Surprise Exam Paradox  [PDF]
Tahl Nowik
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: We present a resolution of the celebrated "Surprise Exam Paradox". We argue that if the surprise exam story is analyzed using the exact same meaning of the notion of "surprise" as is dictated by the story itself, then no paradox arises.
Experience in using a typed functional language for the development of a security application  [PDF]
Damien Doligez,Christèle Faure,Thérèse Hardin,Manuel Maarek
Computer Science , 2014, DOI: 10.4204/EPTCS.149.6
Abstract: In this paper we present our experience in developing a security application using a typed functional language. We describe how the formal grounding of its semantic and compiler have allowed for a trustworthy development and have facilitated the fulfillment of the security specification.

Bernoulli numbers and the probability of a birthday surprise  [PDF]
Boaz Tsaban
Mathematics , 2003, DOI: 10.1016/S0166-218X(02)00396-7
Abstract: A birthday surprise is the event that, given k uniformly random samples from a sample space of size n, at least two of them are identical. We show that Bernoulli numbers can be used to derive arbitrarily exact bounds on the probability of a birthday surprise. This result can be used in arbitrary precision calculators, and it can be applied to better understand some questions in communication security and pseudorandom number generation.
Foreign Aid and Human Rights: The Latin American Experience
Capellán,Joel A; Gomez,Simonpeter;
Revista de ciencia política (Santiago) , 2007, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-090X2007000200004
Abstract: this study attempts to answer the following question: what is the relationship between the human rights record of latin american states and the amount of foreign aid they receive? vie examine the role human rights play on the aid allocation for 12 donors over a 21 year period (1983-2002). using a new and, we think, more valid measure of human rights, we find, in general, that recipient respect for human rights is not a major determinant of aid, with the exception of the united states and germany and to a lesser extent denmark, united kingdom and france. these findings contradict the stated commitment these states have taken to make human rights an aspect of their foreign aid allocations
