Previous speaker evaluation studies have traditionally assessed the influence of attitudes toward languages with explicit self-report measures. Social-cognitive theories positing a differential influence of explicit and implicit attitudes on controlled versus automatic evaluative responses have not been addressed in this domain thus far. In addition to separating attitudes toward languages from attitudes toward nationality, the aim of this study was to test whether explicit and implicit speaker evaluations refer to distinct concepts. We expected that explicit attitudes would be stronger predictors of deliberate speaker evaluations than implicit attitudes would. By contrast, we expected that automatic evaluations examined with an evaluative priming task would primarily reflect implicit attitudes. Results showed that explicit speaker evaluations were influenced by explicit attitudes toward nationality, whereas implicit evaluations were mainly predicted by implicit attitudes toward nationality. The crucial role of speaker’s nationality in speaker evaluation processes is further discussed within the framework of implicit group processes. [less ▲]

Part B. of the paper compares the basic concepts of shareholder control in Anglo-America and some states of Continental Europe. It introduces a new categorization between Implicit and Explicit Systems of Corporate Control. The first category refers to statutes that are enacted and construed with the belief that market forces influence managers. Shareholder rights to be exercised in direct contact with the corporation are thought to be relatively weak. This system is established in the Anglo-American world. In contrast, direct shareholder influence through voting and (even minority) shareholder monitoring constitute the fundaments of the Explicit System that traditionally prevailed, for example, in France and Germany. This paper provides historical, statutory and new empirical evidence from some Continental jurisdictions, and in particular Germany. It concludes that in Germany, shareholder meetings are part of Corporate Governance, while the Anglo-American corporate world traditionally understood this term to include only inter-board relationships. Part C. analyses the questions of whether, how and why Corporate Governance systems converge. This study suggests that Corporate Governance systems are likely to develop in Convergence Cycles: If a legal regime provides a particularly efficient solution to a specific problem, this solution will eventually be adopted by other Corporate Governance systems with an inferior system in respect of such problem. These Convergence Cycles will finally overcome the forces against formal convergence. The proposition of Convergence Cycles draws on historical, as well as new statutory and empirical evidence, collected by the author. Part D., finally, analyses the likely impact of convergence on ownership structures. It is likely that the answer to the question of which ownership structure is efficient depends on the stage of the business cycle that the firm is at. Firms within the same stage are likely to become more and more similar with respect to their ownership structures, until they reach an equilibrium that is set at a specific point for a particular group of firms. Thus, this paper adds a dynamic perspective to the static views that presently prevail in the debate upon the convergence of ownership structures. [less ▲]

The associativity property, usually defined for binary functions, can be generalized to functions of a given fixed arity $n\geq 1$ as well as to functions of multiple arities. In this paper, we investigate these two generalizations in the case of Sugeno integrals over bounded distributive lattices and present explicit descriptions of the corresponding associative functions. We also show that, in this case, both generalizations of associativity are essentially the same. [less ▲]

NURBS-based isogeometric analysis was first extended to thin shell/membrane structures which allows for finite membrane stretching as well as large deflection and bending strain. The assumed non-linear kinematics employs the Kirchhoff-Love shell theory to describe the mechanical behaviour of thin to ultrathin structures. The displacement fields are interpolated from the displacements of control points only, and no rotational degrees of freedom are used at control points. Due to the high order Ck (k ≥ 1) continuity of NURBS shape functions the Kirchhoff-Love theory can be seamlessly implemented. An explicit time integration scheme is used to compute the transient response of membrane structures to time-domain excitations, and a dynamic relaxation method is employed to obtain steady-state solutions. The versatility and good performance of the present formulation is demonstrated with the aid of a number of test cases, including a square membrane strip under static pressure, the inflation of a spherical shell under internal pressure, the inflation of a square airbag and the inflation of a rubber balloon. The mechanical contribution of the bending stiffness is also evaluated. [less ▲]

Let K be a quadratic number field and let \alpha \in K*. We present an explicit finite procedure to compute at once all Kummer degrees [K(\zeta_m,\sqrt[n]{\alpha}):K(\zeta_m)] for n,m \geq 1 with n|m, where \zeta_m denotes a primitive m-th root of unity. We can also replace \alpha by any finitely generated subgroup of K*. [less ▲]

Let G be a finitely generated multiplicative subgroup of Q* having rank r. The ratio between n^r and the Kummer degree [Q(\zeta_m,\sqrt[n]{G}) : Q(\zeta_m)], where n divides m, is bounded independently of n and m. We prove that there exist integers m_0, n_0 such that the above ratio depends only on G, \gcd(m,m_0), and \gcd(n,n_0). Our results are very explicit and they yield an algorithm that provides formulas for all the above Kummer degrees (the formulas involve a finite case distinction). [less ▲]

We develop a new approach to deformation quantizations of Lie bialgebras and Poisson structures which goes in two steps. In the first step one associates to any Poisson (resp. Lie bialgebra) structure a so called quantizable Poisson (resp. Lie bialgebra) structure. We show explicit transcendental formulae for this correspondence. In the second step one deformation quantizes a quantizable Poisson (resp. Lie bialgebra) structure. We show again explicit transcendental formulae for this second step correspondence (as a byproduct we obtain configuration space models for biassociahedron and bipermutohedron). In the Poisson case the first step is the most non-trivial one and requires a choice of an associator while the second step quantization is essentially unique, it is independent of a choice of an associator and can be done by a trivial induction. We conjecture that similar statements hold true in the case of Lie bialgebras. The main new result is a surprisingly simple explicit universal formula (which uses only smooth differential forms) for universal quantizations of finite-dimensional Lie bialgebras. [less ▲]

The presentation discusses the use of the digraph kernels for computing a best choice recommendation from a valued outranking digraph. The classical best decision problem approach is critically reviewed. New practical principles underlying a best choice recommendation are introduced which promote the outranking kernels as candidates for best choice recommendations. Some illustrative applications were eventually shown in order to convince the audience. [less ▲]
