Bulgarian Workers in Madrid: Legal Position and Performance on the Job Market
Eugenia Markova
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 2009,
Abstract: This article examines the performance of illegal and legal Bulgarian immigrants on the Madrid job market, their propensity to integrate into the receiving society and their intention to return to Bulgaria. The performance of migrants is defined by their success in finding employment (and specifically by their first job and present job in the host country), by their competition with autochthonous workers for employment and by patterns of saving/ remittance sending. The article is based on a survey carried out in 2003/2004 on 202 Bulgarian immigrants residing in the Community of Madrid.

Un fragmento manuscrito de una novela de caballerías en judeo-espa ol
Markova, Alla
Sefarad : Revista de Estudios Hebraicos y Sefardíes , 2009,
Abstract: The article describes a Judeo-Spanish manuscript from the Firkovitch Collection in St. Petersburg. It is a fragment of a chivalry novel, with all features typical of the genre: scenes of battles and love, witchcraft and courage. Unfortunately, neither the beginning nor the end of the manuscript is preserved, and at present it is not possible to identify the fragment with any of the known chivalry novels. Some hints indicate that the text was written by (or adapted for) Jews. El artículo describe un manuscrito hebraico-aljamiado que se encuentra en la colección Firkovitch de San Petersburgo. Se trata de un fragmento de una novela de caballerías, con todos los rasgos típicos del género –escenas de batallas y amor, hechicería y coraje. Por desgracia, el fragmento no tiene ni principio ni fin, y en este momento no es posible atribuirlo a ninguna novela de caballerías conocida. Varios rasgos nos indican que el texto fue escrito por (o adaptado para) judíos.
Youth Conformity Regarding Institutions and Media
Nikolay Ivantchev,Kremena Markova
Psychological Thought , 2012,
Abstract: An experiment on conformity was carried out. The participants were 95 youths. The scale “Conformity – Autonomy” from I. Karagiozov’s questionnaire for locus of control (1998) was also used. The results indicated the prevalence of youth conformity regarding institutions and media. The different types of conformity were related to each other. The subjects’ gender and the experimentators’ gender mediated the connections between the both types of conformity. The female youths conformed more with institutions than the male youths, but there were not any significant gender differences in their conform behavior regarding media (magazines). More male youths conformed for the magazines when the experimentator was a woman. More female youths conformed for the magazines when the experimentator was a man.
Attitude Formation of Benefits Satisfaction: Knowledge and Fit of Benefits
Gery Markova, Foard Jones
International Journal of Business Research and Management , 2011,
Abstract: Using the theoretical framework of the Theory of Reasoned Action [6], we examine benefits satisfactionas an attitude formed by the beliefs about benefits (i.e., benefits knowledge) and the perceived value ofthese benefits (i.e., fit of benefits to individual needs). We use questionnaires to gather data from arandom sample of 591 employees in a large county agency in the South-eastern United States. The datasupport that knowledge of benefits is associated with enhanced benefits satisfaction and mediates theeffect of explanations about benefits on satisfaction. The results provide strong evidence that benefitsperceived to suit employee needs generate highest benefits satisfaction. Employees satisfied with theirbenefits are less likely to consider leaving the organization. The tested model is a starting point for futurestudies to apply the extended Theory of Reasoned Action [1] and incorporate perceived behaviouralcontrol and subjective norms (i.e., co-workers’ attitudes) in forming benefits satisfaction. Understandingemployees’ affective and cognitive reactions to compensation, including benefits, can render betterpractices. Companies should use information campaigns to improve employee beliefs about benefits.Better attentiveness to individual needs and preferences can maximize the utility of a benefits plan andimprove its acceptance. We replicate and extend past research in a parsimonious model of benefitssatisfaction with a random sample of public sector employees.
Wind structure in late-B supergiants
N. Markova,H. Markov
Physics , 2009,
Abstract: Extended spectroscopic datasets of several late-B stars of luminosity class Ia revealed the presence of similar peculiarities in their H alpha profiles, which might be interpreted as indications of deviation from spherically symmetric, smooth wind approximation. Surface structures due to non-radial pulsations or weak, large-scale, dipole magnetic fields might be responsible for creating wind structure in the envelopes of these stars.
The mass discrepancy problem in O stars of solar metallicity. Does it still exist?
N. Markova,J. Puls
Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1017/S1743921314006462
Abstract: Using own and literature data for a large sample of O stars in the Milky Way, we investigate the correspondence between their spectroscopic and evolutionary masses, and try to put constraints on various parameters that might influence the estimates of these two quantities.
On symplectic dynamics near a homoclinic orbit to 1-elliptic fixed point
L. Lerman,A. Markova
Mathematics , 2015,
Abstract: We study the orbit behavior of a four dimensional smooth symplectic diffeomorphism $f$ near a homoclinic orbit $\Gamma$ to an 1-elliptic fixed point under some natural genericity assumptions. 1-elliptic fixed point has two real eigenvalues out of unit circle and two others on the unit circle. Thus there is a smooth 2-dimensional center manifold $W^c$ where the restriction of the diffeomorphism has the elliptic fixed point supposed to be generic (no strong resonances and first Birkhoff coefficient is nonzero). Moser's theorem guarantees the existence of a positive measure set of KAM invariant curves. $W^c$ itself is a normally hyperbolic manifold in the whole phase space and due to Fenichel results every point on $W^c$ has 1-dimensional stable and unstable smooth invariant curves forming two smooth foliations. In particular, each KAM invariant curve has stable and unstable smooth 2-dimensional invariant manifolds being Lagrangian. The related stable and unstable manifolds of $W^c$ are 3-dimensional smooth manifolds which are supposed to be transverse along homoclinic orbit $\Gamma$. One of our theorems presents conditions under which each KAM invariant curve on $W^c$ in a sufficiently small neighborhood of $\Gamma$ has four transverse homoclinic orbits. Another result ensures that under some Birkhoff genericity assumption for the restriction of $f$ on $W^c$ saddle periodic orbits in resonance zones also have homoclinic orbits though its transversality or tangency cannot be verified directly.
Local limit theorems for Markov chains with trend component of linear growth
V. Konakov,A. Markova
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: We consider a sequence of Markov chains weakly convergent to a diffusion. We suppose that a drift term contains a linearly increasing component. The usual parametrix method fails because of this unbounded drift term. We show how to modify the parametrix method to obtain local limit theorems for this case.
