  • A Generic Framework for Building Heterogeneous Simulations of Parallel and Distributed Computing Systems 

    Authors:Dursun, Taner; Daǧ, Hasan
    Publisher and Date:(Springer Heidelberg, 2017)
    There have been many systems available for parallel and distributed computing (PDC) applications such as grids clusters super-computers clouds peer-to-peer and volunteer computing systems. High-performance computing (HPC) has been an obvious candidate domain to take advantage of PDC systems. Most of the research on HPC has been conducted with simulations and has been generally focused on a specific type of PDC system. This paper however introduces a general purpose simulation model that can be ...

  • Endogenous reference points in bargaining 

    Authors:Karagözoğlu, Emin; Keskin, Kerim
    Publisher and Date:(Springer Heidelberg, 2018)
    We allow the reference point in (cooperative) bargaining problems with a reference point to be endogenously determined. Two loss averse agents simultaneously and strategically choose their reference points taking into consideration that with a certain probability they will not be able to reach an agreement and will receive their disagreement point outcomes whereas with the remaining probability an arbitrator will distribute the resource by using (an extended) Gupta-Livne bargaining solution (Gupta ...

  • Female employment status: a survey analysis of selected member states of the Arab League 

    Authors:Ucal, Meltem; Gunay, Simge
    Publisher and Date:(Springer Heidelberg, 2019)
    Low female labor force participation is a conspicuous issue in the literature. Based on this information, women's perspectives of the determinants of female labor force participation in 13 member states of the Arab League in relation to the region's patriarchal culture and conservative social norms are discussed in this paper. Probit modelling is applied to the sixth wave of the World Values Survey data (2010-2014), in order to examine the relationship between female labor force participation and ...

  • Generalized Einstein tensor for a Weyl manifold and its applications 

    Authors:Özdeǧer, Abdülkadir
    Publisher and Date:(Springer Heidelberg, 2013)
    It is well known that the Einstein tensor G for a Riemannian manifold defined by R (alpha) (beta) = g (beta gamma) R (gamma I +/-) where R (gamma I +/-) and R are respectively the Ricci tensor and the scalar curvature of the manifold plays an important part in Einstein's theory of gravitation as well as in proving some theorems in Riemannian geometry. In this work we first obtain the generalized Einstein tensor for a Weyl manifold. Then after studying some properties of generalized Einstein tensor ...

  • On the uniqueness of epidemic models fitting a normalized curve of removed individuals 

    The susceptible-infected-removed (SIR) and the susceptible-exposed-infected-removed (SEIR) epidemic models with constant parameters are adequate for describing the time evolution of seasonal diseases for which available data usually consist of fatality reports. The problems associated with the determination of system parameters starts with the inference of the number of removed individuals from fatality data, because the infection to death period may depend on health care factors. Then, one ...
