A Functional Representation of Fuzzy Preferences  [PDF]
Susheng Wang
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2017.71002
Abstract: This paper defines a well-behaved fuzzy order and finds a simple functional representation for the fuzzy preferences. It includes the existing utility theory for exact preferences (no fuzziness) as a special case. It is a simple and intuitive extension of the utility theory under uncertainty, which can potentially be used to explain a few known paradoxes against the existing expected utility theory.
Constructionist Theory of Representation in Language and Communication: A Philosophical Analysis  [PDF]
Bonachristus Umeogu, Ojiakor Ifeoma
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2012.22021
Abstract: There is nothing as an innocent word because every word no matter how simple it sounds is loaded with meaning. For communication to have taken place, the meaning of a word or symbol is grasped and understood by the receiver. This paper maintains that there are variables which influence the construction and decoding of meaning with the resultant effect that no two individuals construct meanings in uniform way.
Tensor Product of Krammer’s Representations of the P3  [PDF]
Hassan A. Tarraf, Mohammad N. Abdulrahim
Advances in Pure Mathematics (APM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/apm.2012.23026
Abstract: We consider the complex specializations of Krammer’s representation of the pure braid group on three strings, namely K(q,t), where q and t are non-zero complex numbers. We then specialize the indeterminate t by one and replace by for simplicity. Then we present our main theorem that gives us sufficient conditions that guarantee the irreducibility of the tensor product of two irreducible complex specializations of Krammer’s repre- sentations .
Lexicon Creation for Financial Sentiment Analysis Using Network Embedding  [PDF]
Ryo Ito, Kiyoshi Izumi, Hiroki Sakaji, Shintaro Suda
Journal of Mathematical Finance (JMF) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jmf.2017.74048
Abstract: In this study, we aim to construct a polarity dictionary specialized for the analysis of financial policies. Based on an idea that polarity words are likely located in the secondary proximity in the dependency network, we proposed an automatic dictionary construction method using secondary LINE (Large-scale Information Network Embedding) that is a network representation learning method to quantify relationship. The results suggested the possibility of constructing a dictionary using distributed representation by LINE. We also confirmed that a distributed representation with a property different from the distributed representation by the CBOW (Continuous Bag of Word) model was acquired and analyzed the differences between the distributed representation using LINE and the distributed representation using the CBOW model.
The Unified Theory of Science  [PDF]
Amagh Nduka
Applied Mathematics (AM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/am.2016.712112
Abstract: This short expository note establishes that the whole of science is derivable from a certain cosmic parameter called the index of the universe.
Urban Space and Representation in Literary Study  [PDF]
Long Shi, Qingwei Zhu
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2018.69015
Abstract: The questions of what a city is and how cities are represented in literary works have occupied the attention of many scholars. When literary works gives urban imaginative reality, and in turn the urban changes promotes the turn of literary texts. It is the textuality that is taken as the constant mutual construction between urban and fiction.
Beeldvorming rond adel en ridderschap bij Froissart en de Bourgondische kroniekschrijvers
F. Buylaert,J. Dumolyn
BMGN : Low Countries Historical Review , 2008,
Abstract: The Representation of Nobility and Chivalry in the Literature of Froissart and the Burgundian Chroniclers This article discusses the representation of nobility and chivalry in the historiographical literature of Jean Froissart and his fifteenth-century followers. By analysing the discourse of those chronicles, this article intends to focus on the social functions of this literary tradition for its intended public; the nobles and state officials of the Burgundian-Habsburg court. As such, this publication questions the existing interpretation of the remarkable emphasis of those chroniclers on virtue as the source of ‘true nobility’ as an attempt by ambitious officials and intellectuals to obtain a noble status. The social significance of those chronicles resides in the fact that they were important for the definition and dissemination of a set of norms that governed the public behaviour of nobles.
Representation of Vietnam in 2006:A Comparative Study between Western and Local Media
Le Trieu Thanh
Bodhi: An Interdisciplinary Journal , 2008, DOI: 10.3126/bodhi.v2i1.2864
Abstract: But, like any frame that delineates a world, the news frame may be considered problematic. The view through a window depends upon whether the window is large or small, has many panes or few, whether the glass is opaque or clear, whether the windows faces a street or a backyard. The unfolding scene also depends upon where one stands, far or near, craning one's neck to the side, or gazing straight ahead, eyes parallel to the wall in which the window is encased" (Gaye Tuchman - Making news: A study in the Construction of Reality, 1978, p.1)
Sorteios e representa??o democrática
Miguel, Luis Felipe;
Lua Nova: Revista de Cultura e Política , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-64452000000200005
Abstract: different proposals for the reintroduction of choice by lot as a way of performing political functions are studied. selecting legislative or governing positions by chance would reduce the impact of economic power, would allow a more trustworthy representation of minority groups, and would prevent the rise of an oligarchy. however, there would occur a loss of legislative continuity and, specially, of accountability of the governing towards the governed. despite their weak points those proposals are useful for a better understanding of the problems of electoral representation and for detecting their causes.
El vasto mar de los sargazos de Jean Rhys: voces en contrapunto
Hernández Fernández,Omaira;
Letras , 2010,
Abstract: el vasto mar de los sargazos (1966) was written by jean rhys as a textual response to the english romantic novel jane eyre of charlotte bront? (1847); a motivation to show the ?criollo side? in front of the ?english side? results evident. to do so, jean rhys assigns a cultural, historic, geographic and social voice and location to antoinette (rochester?s lunatic wife in bront??s novel) in order to describe the ?criollo side? as she stands for the representation of this side of the world. rochester continues to be the voice and the representation of the english world. studying the system of representation of both visions of the world (that of the empire and that of the colonized) is the main aim of this work. it is not only an attempt to present and analyze the set of views and representations of the world to which each character belongs, but also to account for the construction and elaboration of a representation of the other. these systems of representation become decisive elements that allow hegemony and the perpetuation of dominance over the other.
