  • On marine reserves: rents, resilience and ‘Rules of thumb’ 

    Grafton, R Quentin; Van Ha, Pham; Kompas, Tom
    Using a bioeconomic model with two separate forms of uncertainty (a diffusion process and a jump process) a perturbation method is used to determine optimal reserve size for a harvested population with density-dependent ...
  • On Real Interest Rate Persistence: The Role of Breaks 

    Haug, Alfred
    The role of structural breaks in long spans of ex-post real interest rates for ten industrialized countries is studied. First, the persistence of the real interest is assessed with newly proposed low-frequency tests of ...
  • On the testability of BDI agent systems 

    Winikoff, Michael; Cranefield, Stephen
    Before deploying a software system we need to assure ourselves (and stakeholders) that the system will behave correctly. This assurance is usually done by testing the system. However, it is intuitively obvious that ...
