Farmers’ Willingness To Adopt Agricultural Best Management Practices To Control Nonpoint Source Pollution In The Lower Bhavani River Basin, Tamilnadu, India, Sacchidananda Mukherjee Oct 2009

Farmers’ Willingness To Adopt Agricultural Best Management Practices To Control Nonpoint Source Pollution In The Lower Bhavani River Basin, Tamilnadu, India, Sacchidananda Mukherjee

Sacchidananda Mukherjee

The role of stakeholders and their voluntary participation in agri-environmental management in general and water resources conservation in particular is a new area of research, at least for a developing country like India. This study attempts to understand the factors influencing farmers’ willingness to adopt agricultural Best Management Practices (BMPs) to protect groundwater from nonpoint sources of pollution. Based on long term groundwater nitrate concentration and source(s) of irrigation six villages selected in the Lower Bhavani River Basin, Tamilnadu and detailed questionnaire survey (face-to-face interviews) has been carried out among 395 farm households. The results of binary choice Probit ...


Does The Journal Impact Factor Help Make A Good Indicator Of Academic Performance?, Sudhanshu K. Mishra Oct 2009

Does The Journal Impact Factor Help Make A Good Indicator Of Academic Performance?, Sudhanshu K. Mishra

Sudhanshu K Mishra

Is journal impact factor a good measure of research merit? This question has assumed a great importance after the notification of the University Grants Commission (Minimum Qualifications for Appointment of Teachers and other Academic Staff in Universities and Colleges and Measures for the Maintenance of Standards in Higher Education) Regulations, 2009 on September 23rd 2009. Now publication of research papers/articles in reputed journals has become an important factor in assessment of the academic performance of teachers in colleges and universities in India. One of the measures of reputation and academic standard (rank or importance) of a journal is the ...


Drinking Water Optimum Supply System (Dwoss) Through The Application Of Advanced Technologies, Praveen Jha Dr Oct 2009

Drinking Water Optimum Supply System (Dwoss) Through The Application Of Advanced Technologies, Praveen Jha Dr

Praveen Jha Dr

Paradigm shift in the approach for planning regarding supply of drinking water is mandatory since the current DPRs are unscientific and expensive. Planning for an optimum Drinking Water Supply System (ODWSS) that includes - optimization of Water Source Point (WSP), Water Treatment System (WTS), Water Storage Systems (WSSs), Water Distribution Points (WDP) and Water Supply Network (WSN); scientific estimation of long term demand of drinking water; minimization of physical and financial resources required for the plan implementation; water conservation and sanitation – could be done by applying several state-of-art geo-spatial programs developed by the author. Three programs - Multi-Algorithm Automation Program (MAAP), Data ...

Incorporating Fairness Motives Into The Impulse Balance Equilibrium And Quantal Response Equilibrium Concepts: An Application To 2x2 Games, Alessandro Tavoni Jun 2009

Incorporating Fairness Motives Into The Impulse Balance Equilibrium And Quantal Response Equilibrium Concepts: An Application To 2x2 Games, Alessandro Tavoni

Alessandro Tavoni

Substantial evidence has accumulated in recent empirical works on the limited ability of the Nash equilibrium to rationalize observed behavior in many classes of games played by experimental subjects. This realization has led to several attempts aimed at finding tractable equilibrium concepts which perform better empirically; one such example is the impulse balance equilibrium (Selten, Chmura, 2008), which introduces a psychological reference point to which players compare the available payoff allocations. This paper is concerned with advancing two new, empirically sound, concepts: equity-driven impulse balance equilibrium (EIBE) and equity-driven quantal response equilibrium (EQRE): both introduce a distributive reference point to ...

Application Layer End-To-End Arguments: From Ends To Means, And Beyond Network Neutrality, Matthias Bärwolff May 2009

Application Layer End-To-End Arguments: From Ends To Means, And Beyond Network Neutrality, Matthias Bärwolff

Matthias Bärwolff

This paper observes that the ultimate objectives of the end-to-end arguments do not necessarily entail a preference for having functions with the end hosts rather than with the network. The horizontal connotations of the end-to-end metaphor collapse when it is elevated to an application layer argument featuring strong "second order" objectives such as those pursued by network neutrality adherents. An internet that serves those ends will have to allow for ISPs to tussle with end users over economic value and surplus considerations, and acknowledge the beneficial rôle of the resulting transactions between the internet’s stakeholders.


Axiomatic Equilibrium Selection For Generic Two-Player Games, Srihari Govindan, Robert B. Wilson May 2009

Axiomatic Equilibrium Selection For Generic Two-Player Games, Srihari Govindan, Robert B. Wilson

Robert B Wilson

We impose three conditions on refinements of the Nash equilibria of finite games with perfect recall that select closed connected subsets, called solutions. A. Each equilibrium in a solution uses undominated strategies; B. Each solution contains a quasi-perfect equilibrium; C. The solutions of a game map to the solutions of an embedded game, where a game is embedded if each player's feasible strategies and payoffs are preserved by a multilinear map. We prove for games with two players and generic payoffs that these conditions characterize each solution as an essential component of equilibria in undominated strategies, and thus a ...

Dpi Considered Not Harmful, Matthias Bärwolff Mar 2009

Dpi Considered Not Harmful, Matthias Bärwolff

Matthias Bärwolff

There is a strong sentiment both in technology and in policy circles against deep packet inspection by ISPs as a means to augment their services or control and shape the uses of their network. We argue that the premise of full transparency of the network is no more viable, and should give way to a notion explicitly recognising the role of networks in assuming functions above the network layer on behalf of the end-systems, and the end-systems controlling, endorsing, and verifying the process of having functions delegated towards the network. Such a paradigm may be a step towards conceptualising an ...

Axiomatic Theory Of Equilibrium Selection For Games With Two Players, Perfect Information, And Generic Payoffs, Srihari Govindan, Robert B. Wilson Feb 2009

Axiomatic Theory Of Equilibrium Selection For Games With Two Players, Perfect Information, And Generic Payoffs, Srihari Govindan, Robert B. Wilson

Robert B Wilson

Three axioms from decision theory are applied to refinements that select connected subsets of the Nash equilibria of games with perfect recall. The first axiom requires all equilibria in a selected subset to be admissible, i.e.\ each player's strategy is an admissible optimal reply to other players' strategies. The second axiom invokes backward induction by requiring a selected subset to contain a sequential equilibrium. The third axiom requires a refinement to be immune to embedding a game in a larger game with additional strategies and players, provided the original players' strategies and payoffs are preserved, viz., selected subsets ...
