Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: A new edition of this translation of the popular treatise of M. Say having been called for, the five previous American editions being entirely out of print, the editor has endeavoured to render the work more deserving of the favour it has received, by subjecting every part of it to a careful revision. As the translation of Mr. Prinsep was made in the year 1821, from an earlier edition of the original treatise, namely, the fourth, which had not received the last ...

The Summer's Morning

By: Various

Poetry

Excerpt: This is a very old ditty, and a favourite with the peasantry in every part of England; but more particularly in the mining districts of the North. The tune is pleasing, but uncommon. R. W. Dixon, Esq., of Seaton-Carew, Durham, by whom the song was communicated to his brother for publication, says, 'I have written down the above, verbatim, as generally sung. It will be seen that the last lines of each verse are not of equal length. The singer, however, makes all ...

By: T. Kurtén; J. Lauros; H. Hakola; M. Kulmala; S. Sevanto; T. Suni; L. Sogacheva; J. Bäck; H. Cleugh; P. Briggs; E. Van Gorsel

Description: Department of Physics, University of Helsinki, P.O. Box 48, 00014 Helsinki, Finland. The world's forests produce atmospheric aerosol by emitting volatile organic compounds (VOC) which, after being oxidized in the atmosphere, readily condense on the omnipresent nanometer-sized nuclei and grow them to climatically relevant sizes. The cooling effect of aerosols is the greatest uncertainty in current climate models and estimates of radiative forcing. Theref...

By: T. Günther; M. Müller-petke

Description: Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics (LIAG), Stilleweg 2, 30655 Hannover, Germany. In order to do hydraulic modelling for simulating the salt-/fresh water dynamics, the parameters porosity, salinity and hydraulic conductivity are needed. We present a methodology retrieve them by the joint analysis of magnetic resonance (MRS) and and vertical electric (VES) soundings. Both data sets are jointly inverted for resistivity, water content and decay time us...

Description: National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics, Helwan, Cairo, Egypt. This paper reviews the likely source characteristics, focal source mechanism and fault patterns of the nearest effective seismogenic zones to Greater Cairo Area. Furthermore, Mmax and ground accelerations related to the effective seismic events expected in future from those seismogenic zones are well evaluated. For this purpose, the digital waveform of earthq...

By: G-a. Tselentis; E. Sokos

Description: University of Patras, Seismological Lab, Greece. In this paper we suggest the use of diffusion-neural-networks, (neural networks with intrinsic fuzzy logic abilities) to assess the relationship between isoseismal area and earthquake magnitude for the region of Greece. It is of particular importance to study historical earthquakes for which we often have macroseismic information in the form of isoseisms but it is statistically incomplete to assess magnit...

Description: Department of Earth Sciences, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada. The Thirulamai-Mountain (TM) metric was first developed to study ergodicity in fluids and glasses (Thirumalai and Mountain, 1993) using the concept of effective ergodicity, where a large but finite time interval is considered. Tiampo et al. (2007) employed the TM metric to earthquake systems to search for effective ergodic periods, which are considered to be metastable equilibr...

Fully Probabilistic Seismic Source Inversion – Part 1: Efficient P...

By: K. Sigloch; S. C. Stähler

Description: Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), Munich, Germany. Seismic source inversion is a non-linear problem in seismology where not just the earthquake parameters themselves but also estimates of their uncertainties are of great practical importance. Probabilistic source inversion (Bayesian inference) is very adapted to this challenge, provided that the parameter space can be chosen small enough to make Bayesi...
