    DSSS Differential GMSK With Space-Time Modulation for Robust Mobile Data Links

    A new modulation scheme combing GMSK with Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and differential modulation is proposed in this paper, which is named DS-DGMSK. The demodulation can achieve BER performance comparable to DBPSK while the bandwidth efficiency and power efficiency are higher thanks to GMSK. By combining with spread spectrum and...

    Effects Of Discretionary Fiscal Policy: New Empirical Evidence For Germany

    This paper analyses the effects of discretionary fiscal policy by presenting new empirical evidence for Germany within a Structural Vector AutoRegression (SVAR) framework. Following Blanchard and Perotti (2002), the SVAR model is identified by applying institutional information. The authors find no compelling evidence for the effectiveness of discretionary fiscal policy....

    Financial Development And Household Welfare: Microevidence From Thai Households

    The authors provide new micro evidence on the discussion about the relationship between financial development and welfare. Relying on the concept of local financial development their analysis focuses on three dimensions of household welfare: vulnerability to poverty, investment, and consumption smoothing. Even though they cannot find a significant effect on...

    Entity Search With NECESSITY

    Loosely structured heterogeneous information spaces are typically created by merging data from a variety of different applications and information sources. A common problem these information spaces need to address is that various data describe the same real-word entities (e.g., people, conferences, organizations). In this paper, the authors introduce NECESSITY, an...

    Does Training On Behavioral Finance Influence Fund Managers' Perception And Behavior?

    This paper provides survey evidence on the influence of training on behavioral finance on professional fund managers' perception and investment behavior. In particular, it examines whether "Trained" fund managers differ from the "Untrained" ones in their perception of markets and themselves as well as in their choice of information sources...

    Coupling Wireless Sensor Networks and the Sensor Observation Service - Bridging the Interoperability Gap

    The application of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) provides an inexpensive and easy to implement monitoring system for landslide events. The system used in SLEWS for deploying sensor units is constructed by the project partner ScatterWeb. As a modern and autonomous ad hoc wireless sensor network it is characterised by self-organisation...

    Village Funds In The Rural Credit Market Of Thailand

    This paper examines the contribution of recently introduced village funds in rural Thailand, one of the largest microfinance programs ever implemented. The authors use a cross-sectional approach examining village funds in relation to competing financial institutions. They find, first, that village funds reach the target groups of lower income households...

    Risk Management With Default-risky Forwards

    This paper studies the impact of counter-party default risk of forward contracts on a firm?s production and hedging decisions. Using a model of a risk-averse competitive firm under price uncertainty, it derives several fundamental results. If expected profits from forward contracts are zero, the hedge ratio is surprisingly not affected...
