Perfect Equilibria in Replies in Multiplayer Bargaining  [PDF]
Luís Carvalho
Journal of Applied Mathematics , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/248968
Abstract: Multiplayer bargaining is a game in which all possible divisions are equilibrium outcomes. This paper presents the classical subgame perfect equilibria strategies and analyses their weak robustness, namely, the use of weakly dominated strategies. The paper then develops a refined equilibrium concept, based on trembling hand perfection applied only on the replies, in order to overcome such weakness. Concluding that none of the classical equilibrium strategies survives the imposition of the extrarobustness and albeit using more complex strategies, the equilibrium outcomes do not change. 1. Introduction In -players bargaining, there is a divisible good to be shared among them. The division is obtained by the following procedure: at each moment a player proposes a division, and the other players vote in favor or against it. If all agree, the division is made accordingly; if at least one player votes against it, the game goes on to another round, with another player proposing and a new suffrage taking place. The game ends when a proposal is accepted by all. At each round, the good in question loses value by . The better known result on multiplayer bargaining is that all divisions are Subgame Perfect Nash Equilibria (SPNE) outcomes of the game, meaning that all divisions can be agreed on in equilibria. Crucial to obtain this result is the existence of a credible and painful threat for deviators of the “right” track. Reference [1] provides an ingenious mechanism, creating a strategy in which at least one player is unsatisfied with a deviation proposal. For this strategy, they used a state variable and if the proponent does not propose as implied by the state, the state changes to a new one in which one player receives everything. Players do not want to deviate because in the punishment state they will receive nothing. For this strategy to be an equilibrium, the discount value cannot be very small; namely, with players . Reference [2] noted that an equilibrium for all divisions possibilities could be extended to . This strategy also uses a state variable and punishment threats that attribute everything to one player only; the main difference is in the repliers’ actions, with players accepting only if the proposition is equal to the state—any difference, even if awards all repliers, is rejected. The belief players have that the proposition will be rejected renders them indifferent between accepting and rejecting the offer, and they thus opt for refusing it. Of notice is that all these equilibria do not depend on the replies and that it is unorthodox for players

Abstract: This paper replies to the comment by Jefimenko: "Causal equations for electric and magnetic fields and Maxwell's equations: Comment on a paper by Heras" [Am. J. Phys. 76, 101-101 (2008)]."
Further Comments on the replies given by Yoshihiko Yokoyama and Akihisa Inoue (Mater. Trans. 50 (2009) 2504-2506.) for Tsuyoshi Kajitani (Mater. Trans. 50 (2009) 2502-2503.)  [PDF]

Abstract: Yokoyama and Inoue gabe their replies to eight questions raised by the present author with respect to their paper on "Production of Zr55Cu30Ni5Al10 glassy alloy rod of 30mm in diameter by a cap-cast technique" in 2007. Yokoyama and Inoue stressed in their reply that there were no inadequeate descriptions in their paper, except for the catalog name of a TEM machine, which was a typographical error. It is still unclear why a cap-cast technique is needed to produce glassy alloy rods up to 30mm in diameter. Lack of essential information regarding the cap-cast technique leads us no valuable assessment of a new technique. Further questions arose.

Author Identifiers in Scholarly Repositories  [PDF]
Simeon Warner
Computer Science , 2010,
Abstract: Bibliometric and usage-based analyses and tools highlight the value of information about scholarship contained within the network of authors, articles and usage data. Less progress has been made on populating and using the author side of this network than the article side, in part because of the difficulty of unambiguously identifying authors. I briefly review a sample of author identifier schemes, and consider use in scholarly repositories. I then describe preliminary work at arXiv to implement public author identifiers, services based on them, and plans to make this information useful beyond the boundaries of arXiv.
Author Identifier Overview
Martin Fenner
Libreas : Library Ideas , 2011,
Abstract: Unique identifiers for scholarly authors are still not commonly used, but provide a number of benefits to authors, institutions, publishers, funding organizations and scholarly societies. This report gives an overview about some of the popular author identifier systems, and their characteristics. The report also discusses several important issues that need to be addressed by author identifier systems, namely identity, reputation and trust.
Schulman Replies  [PDF]

Physics , 2000, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.85.897
Abstract: This is a reply to a comment of Casati, Chirikov and Zhirov (PRL 85, 896 (2000)) on PRL 83, 5419 (1999). The suitability of the particlar two-time boundary value problem used in the earlier PRL is argued.
"Thank you for your critical comments and helpful suggestions": compliance and conflict in authors' replies to referees' comments in peer reviews of scientific research papers
Hugh Gosden
Ibérica , 2001,
Abstract: Peer reviews of research papers submitted to journals are an "occluded" genre (Swales, 1996) - referees are usually anonymous and the confidential reports themselves are not part of the official record of research publication. Thus, compared to the published, readily available genres of the academy, there are few opportunities to study gatekeeping discourse such as peer reviews, nor are there many opportunities for novice researchers to practice framing appropriate and effective point-by-point replies to criticisms. This paper is part of a study based on the analysis and functional description of comments from a corpus of referees' reports and authors' replies. The data highlight the importance of authors being able to recognize and interpret the relative interactional/interpersonal vs. technical/ideational orientation of requested revisions, in order to revise successfully their papers after peer review. Research on publication productivity in the sciences has emphasized the importance of early productivity as a strong predictor of future publication (Fox, 1983). When young scientists take up their first academic position, publication levels are initially more affected by the productivity of the pre-doctoral years than by the prestige of the new department and institution. In a "reinforcing process of advantage" (Fox, 1983:293), those who have published early will often continue to do so for several years until the supportive research environment of their present location will more strongly affect continued productivity.
