    The Generalized K-Coverage Under Probabilistic Sensing Model in Sensor Networks

    The usage of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) to monitor a region is an important functionality in defense and security applications. In these applications, a fundamental issue is to determine the minimum degree of coverage in the concerned region. The past researches focus on the binary disk sensing model, where sensors...

    Analysis of the Number of Hops in Wired-Wireless Heterogeneous Networks

    As more and more wireless communication scenarios, such as Internet of Things and 4G wireless networks, rely on the deployment of wire-line networks, the analysis of the heterogeneous wired-wireless networks becomes critical. In this paper, the Probability Mass Function (PMF) of the number of hops in heterogeneous wired and wireless...

    Heterogeneous Human Capital, Trade And Growth

    Distribution differences in human capital matter for a country's growth and trade. While the existing literature considers only the diversity difference in talent distribution, the authors argue that the kurtosis difference is also an important factor. In a two-sector equilibrium growth model, where the production function is supermodular for the...

    Multinational Corporations, FDI And The East Asian Economic Integration

    The phenomenon of fast-growing business activities of multinational corporations around the world has generated much interest in understanding its implications for the development of world economy as well as the relationship among national economies. By analyzing the world top 2000 firms published by the Forbes (the Forbes Global 2000), this...

    Endogenous Time Preference In Monetary Growth Model

    The authors study the otherwise standard growth model with money except endogenous time preferences determined by resources spent on imagining future pleasures along the line of Becker and Mulligan (1997). Money plays a role in transactions via the cash-in-advance constraint. The resulting steady-state condition can be simplified to the standard...
