A Research about Public Participation in the Process of Master-Urban-Planning in China—An Introduction of Practice of Gathering Public Opinion via Questionnaire Survey  [PDF]
Yang Fan
Advances in Applied Sociology (AASoci) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/aasoci.2015.51002
Abstract: This paper summarizes the practice of public participation via questionnaire survey in the process of working out Master Plan in China. Based on the analysis, the key issue to be desperately solved is the strategic content about urban long-term development, especially highlighted in conducting public participation by ways of questionnaire survey. In this regard, designing the questionnaire’s content and subsequent distribution must provide convenience for townspeople to comprehend and to express themselves, and meanwhile questionnaire retrieving and analysis/conclusion shall be oriented by optimized scheme of spatial distribution. The importance of public participation cannot be overemphasized under the transformation of urban development in China. It will influence the decision-making of local government; it will have the communication between planners/ designers and government officials further strengthened.
Supply Chain Models with Considerations of Co-Op Advertising and Capacity Constraints  [PDF]
Fan Yang
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2018.62039
Today’s marketing competition focuses on the supply chain members to make its own interests maximize through cooperation. This article establishes a simple secondary supply chain consisting of a retailer and a manufacturer. Through the establishment of a Stackelberg game model and a partnership game model, we study the decision of the member enterprises in the supply chain under the restriction of capacity. The research results show that if the production capacity is smaller, the manufacturer will choose full-load production. If the production capacity is sufficient, the manufacturer will no longer produce more products because its profit may be lost. The lack of production capacity makes the manufacturer not take the initiative to share the advertising costs of retailers. But when the capacity is sufficient, the manufacture shares 1/3 of advertising costs. In addition, whether manufacturers and retailers choose to cooperate in the case of a small capacity, the profit of the supply chain will not change.
Aerial Video Encoding Optimization Based On x264  [PDF]
Fan Yang, Hongbing Ma
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2013.31B008
Abstract: x264 video codec uses lots of new video encoding technology based on H.264/AVC video encoding standard which enhances compression efficiency. However this results in so heavy computation that the x264 codec is not fit for real-time encoding application of high resolution video. This paper analyses the character of aerial video and then opti-mizes the inter-frame mode decision and motion estimation in x264 codec according to its character by reducing a lot of unnecessary computation. In the result, about 19% computation and encoding time is reduced with total bits and PSNR decreasing lightly.
Influence of Parent Company’s Organizational Dimensions on Its JV Performances – Opportunism Occurrence and Control Efficacy
Yang Fan
International Journal of Business and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v6n7p51
Abstract: How does a parent company organizational dimension affect its joint ventures’ performance in a transitional economy? We explored that question through an analytical inductive case study. Our findings indicate that the confluence of a function-oriented matrix form and lack of formal procedures at the strategic level led to a fief-like organization in which its functional departments hold high power and low accountability while its JVs’ management team hold low power but high accountability. Such a fief-like organizational parent makes a negative contribution to its JV performance by adding difficulty to its JV formal control, introducing department-driven opportunism through imposing inside hierarchical goals upon its JV, leading to a low opportunism control efficacy as the result of the separation of opportunism beneficiary from the costs. The negative contribution from the fief-like organization is due to its organizational injustice and a reverse arrangement between authority power and accountability.
Toward Understanding IJV Control: Parent Inside and Outside Control – An Exploratory Case Study
Yang Fan
International Journal of Business and Management , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v6n4p30
Abstract: Previous studies have failed to recognize the difference between parent control over its ‘own people’ and ‘other people’ in IJVs. The paper for the first time in the literature separates parent control into two modes of control –inside and outside control upon the nature of the relationship between parents and respective IJV management teams. We examine inside and outside control through an analytical inductive case study. Our result shows that inside control determined by parent ownership is an endogenous contingent control. It has a broad but selective control focus. It gives a parent adaptability and flexibility in selecting control extent and mechanisms. Outside control is determined by parent overall bargaining power. It is a pre-determined control with a narrow specific focus, and its control extent and mechanisms are predefined. Our study contributes to the literature on IJV control by adding the nature of the relationship between parents and individual management groups into the IJV control equation, unveiling two distinctive forms of control within IJVs.
Expressing Second-order Sentences in Intuitionistic Dependence Logic
Fan Yang
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: Intuitionistic dependence logic was introduced by Abramsky and Vaananen (2009) as a variant of dependence logic under a general construction of Hodges' (trump) team semantics. It was proven that there is a translation from intuitionistic dependence logic sentences into second order logic sentences. In this paper, we prove that the other direction is also true, therefore intuitionistic dependence logic is equivalent to second order logic on the level of sentences.
Uniform Definability in Propositional Dependence Logic
Fan Yang
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: In this paper, we study the uniform definability problem of connectives of propositional dependence logic (PD). Every propositional formula with intuitionistic disjunction and intuitionistic implication of team semantics can be translated equivalently into a formula of PD without these two connectives. In this paper, we show that although such a (non-uniform) translation exists, neither intuitionistic disjunction nor intuitionistic implication is uniformly definable in PD.
Speed-up Multi-modal Near Duplicate Image Detection  [PDF]
Chunlei Yang, Jinye Peng, Jianping Fan
Open Journal of Applied Sciences (OJAppS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojapps.2013.31B004
Abstract: Near-duplicate image detection is a necessary operation to refine image search results for efficient user exploration. The existences of large amounts of near duplicates require fast and accurate automatic near-duplicate detection methods. We have designed a coarse-to-fine near duplicate detection framework to speed-up the process and a multi-modal integra-tion scheme for accurate detection. The duplicate pairs are detected with both global feature (partition based color his-togram) and local feature (CPAM and SIFT Bag-of-Word model). The experiment results on large scale data set proved the effectiveness of the proposed design.
A Game Theoretic Approach for Analyzing the System of Incentives and Restraints Present in Chinese Financial Systems  [PDF]
Lin Hu, Fan Yang, Zijun Sha
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2014.47066

Currently, the most important issue with respect to financial institutions is how to motivate staff without providing perverse incentives. For instance, with the implementation of a proper incentive system, staff will be motivated via their self-interest to create financial innovations to better price and hedge risk. However, this system must also be designed with checks and balances in mind because it is also very easy to institute a system in which perverse incentives drive individual behavior. In an effort to modernize the Chinese financial system, it is important to understand both the underlying mechanism by which people respond to incentives to better design compensation schemes that maximize innovation. Utilizing game theory, it is possible to analyze the interplay between these two drivers of human action. From this analysis it becomes possible to design better ways of compensating staff to curb undesirable behavior by those in the financial industry while still promoting innovation within the field.

Study on Torque Ripple of Wound-Field Doubly Salient Generator with No Load  [PDF]
Fan Yang, Jin Ma, Haoji Xu
World Journal of Engineering and Technology (WJET) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/wjet.2015.33C017

Wound-field Doubly Salient Generator (WFDSG) has the outstanding advantages of simple structure, high reliability and controllable excitation. However, there exists obvious torque ripple in generator’s input torque, which has restricted its applications. Based on the concept of electromagnetic torque of WFDSG, the nonlinear formula under no load condition has been derived. Furthermore, it is proved to be reasonable theoretically in comparison with linear and approximate nonlinear formulas. Based on the 12/8 salient prototype, the correctness of nonlinear formula has been verified by comparing the results of virtual displacement method with the results of finite element analysis. At last, the simulation results have been validated by experiments.
