We analyse a trade model with non-homothetic preferences and different quality ver- sions of each product. Income effects drive the quality composition of consumption, pro- duction and trade flows. We show that a rise in local population fosters local asymmetric specialization in high-quality production and exports while it harms low income groups. By contrast, an increase in local productivity may generate specialization in high quality production, which in turn may trigger an immiserizing growth process. Weaker compa- rative advantages induce firm to move and make a local productivity improvement more likely to increase production of higher quality goods everywhere. [less ▲]

Deontic logic sentences define what an agent ought to do when faced with a set of norms. These norms may come into conflict such that a priority ordering over them is necessary to resolve these conflicts. Dung's seminal paper raised the - so far open - challenge of how to use formal argumentation to represent non monotonic logics, highlighting argumentation's value in exchanging, communicating and resolving possibly conflicting viewpoints in distributed scenarios. In this paper, we propose a formal framework to study various properties of prioritized non monotonic reasoning in formal argumentation, in line with this idea. More precisely, we show how a version of prioritized default logic and Brewka-Eiter's construction in answer set programming can be obtained in argumentation via the weakest and last link principles. We also show how to represent Hansen's recent construction for prioritized normative reasoning by adding arguments using weak contraposition via permissive norms, and their relationship to Caminada's "hang yourself" arguments.

This article addresses the problem of control of robotic arm with a hysteretic joint behavior. The mechanical design of the one-degree of freedom robotic arm is presented where the joint is actuated by a Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) wire. The SMA wire based actuation of the joint makes the robotic arm lightweight but at the same time introduces hysteresis type nonlinearities. The nonlinear dynamic model of the robotic arm is introduced and an Adaptive control solution is presented to perform the joint reference tracking in the presence of unknown hysteresis behavior. The Lyapunov stability analysis of the closed loop system is presented and finally proposed adaptive control solution is validated through simulation study on the proposed nonlinear hysteretic robotic arm.

This report describes and maps out effective lifelong learning strategies as they are employed at an enterprise level, including an analysis of how such strategies influence enterprises’ learning capacity in their strive towards value creation and high performance. The empirical data triangulates three sources: 1) past empirical and theoretical work (1990-2012); 2) LLLight’in’Europe’s (FP7) empirical data; 3) 2009 and 2013 European Company Survey results. A key conjecture for the empirical analysis and conceptual model is that the ways in which different kinds of learning opportunities, understood as human resource practices (HRPs), are enacted in an enterprise is linked to available arrangements of specific systems, structures, values, processes and resources, mediated by learning. Similarities and differences in these factors create arrays of learning opportunities and potentials for attracting, sustaining and developing competences. The research and analytical synthesis address three interrelated areas of lifelong learning in enterprises, identified as imperatives in high-performance work systems: skills development; learning systems and incentives; and work design and the organisation of work.

Cette étude se propose de mesurer la validité scientifique d’une méthode souvent utilisée, mais peu formalisée en évaluation ergonomique d’une Interface Homme-Machine : le test des 5 secondes. Ce test consiste à présenter à un utilisateur, pendant exactement 5 secondes, une page fixe (page web, écran de logiciel) qu’il doit explorer visuellement. Après 5 secondes, la page disparaît et sa première impression est généralement recueillie à l’aide de quelques questions ouvertes. Afin de mesurer la validité de la méthode, un protocole expérimental a été mis en place afin de comparer les éléments qui sont les plus retenus lors d’un affichage pendant 5 secondes ou pendant une durée illimitée. L’hypothèse qui est posée est que l’utilisateur portera tout d’abord son attention sur les éléments propres à la qualité non-instrumentale de l’interface au cours des premiers instants de l’interaction ; puis au delà de 5 secondes, ce sont les qualités instrumentales qui seront mieux perçues. Les résultats obtenus valident en partie cette hypothèse, et montrent selon nous tout l’intérêt du test des 5 secondes que la recherche doit poursuivre de valider. [less ▲]

Studies of popular attitudes toward European integration have paid limited attention to the historical roots of voters’ security preferences. Using an original municipality-level data set, we test whether the pattern of voting in Croatia’s 2012 referendum on European Union accession was affected by the legacy of the country’s 1991–1995 war for independence or rather by economic factors. While finding evidence for the impact of the communities’ level of prosperity and structure of economy, our analysis more notably demonstrates that the intensity of the communities’ experience of war had a positive effect on their level of support for European Union membership. This effect also had a strong interactive relationship with the communities’ political allegiances, highlighting the importance not only of historically rooted security issues but also of political actors who make those issues electorally salient.

In this paper, we highlight the application of operations research (OR) at BASF in the area of supply chain management (SCM) by using selected examples with annual cost savings ranging between several hundred thousand and several million euros. We address special characteristics of the process industry that should be dealt with and identify future research needs. The examples cover strategic, tactical, and operational topics encountered at BASF. We share our lessons learned, based on our experience from past OR projects in SCM, about challenges as well as benefits of standard and tailor-made OR solutions. In general, we find that the special characteristics often call for a modification or enhancement of standard OR models. Providing appropriate solutions therefore requires a joint effort of SCM, IT, and OR experts. [less ▲]
