This book is an in-depth research and description of the nature of the capital markets, their operations and the continual variability of IPOs initial returns. The frequent volatility of returns during the first day, monthly and yearly trading of stocks as they are constantly influenced by the firm-specific factors as well as macroeconomic factors are the basics of the book.Two emerging markets (Nigerian Stock Exchange and the Sri Lankan Stock Exchange) were used to demonstrate the impacts of these factors. The author goes ahead to determine corporate fraud using the abnormal movements of prices and assuming variable proxies. A new fraud determination approach has been developed especially when cases of fraud are not easily obtainable and or visible. Nevertheless, knowledge and scientific evidences prove that the capital market is a market where monies are created, mobilized but veils its participants when not carefully studied and valued.
Cooperation and clusters have become the guiding paradigms for explaining and promoting regional competitiveness, but the cooperation process between firms and universities and the transfer of knowledge in guiding and nurturing regional competitiveness has received relatively little attention. This book strives to fill this gap in highlighting the connection between inter-firm cooperation in regional clusters, innovation and regional networks, and the role of universities in them . It goes beyond the traditional economic approach of clusters and includes 'soft factors' in the explanation of regional competitiveness, and connects the literature on clusters to the literature of learning and knowledge creation as sources of regional competitiveness. It aims to foster an international and interdisciplinary exchange of perspectives by presenting current developments, case studies, best practices as well as new integrated theoretical approaches and applications.
Diffie Hellman key exchange (D H) is a specific method of exchanging cryptographic keys. It is one of the earliest practical examples of key exchange implemented within the field of cryptography. The Diffie Hellman key exchange method allows two parties that have no prior knowledge of each other to jointly establish a shared secret key over an insecure communications channel. This key can then be used to encrypt subsequent communications using a symmetric key cipher. Wireless networks' is an emerging new technology that will allow users to access information and services electronically, regardless of their geographic position. Wireless networks can be classified in two types:- infrastructured network and infrastructureless (ad-hoc) networks. Infrastructured network consists of a network with fixed and wired gateways. A mobile host communicates with a bridge in the network (called base station) within its communication radius. The mobile unit can move geographically while it is communicating. When it goes out of range of one base station, it connects with new base station and starts communicating through it. This is called handoff. In this approach the base stations are fixed.
This book provides a critical, multiperspective, sociohistorical analysis of the role of food in postcolonial Indigenous, British and French settler relations. Drawing on archival resources from Australian explorers, settlers and nation builders, the book argues that contemporary issues of food security, sovereignty and sustainability have been significantly shaped by the colonial impact on human foodways. The author goes on to enhance readers&#8217; understanding of how contact between inhabitants and newcomers was shaped and informed by food, and how these engagements established a modus vivendi that carries through to the present day. Based on the assessment of archival records, it uses a comparative, socio-historical lens to investigate contact between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people where the exchange of food or knowledge about food took place. It finds that the transfer of food and food knowledge was multifaceted, and the flow of food knowledge occurred in both directions, although these exchanges were neither symmetrical nor balanced. It also analyzes and discusses food as a focal point of activity. The final chapter offers an assessment of the potential for the development of a sustainable, nutritious, tasty Australian cuisine that moves beyond the tropes and stereotypical narratives embedded into colonial Indigenous-settler relations in the context of food. If this was accepted by all Australians, it would allow opportunities to be created for Indigenous Australians to develop food products for the market that are sustainable, economically viable and developed in ways that are culturally appropriate.
Bioprospecting--the exchange of plants for corporate promises of royalties or community development assistance--has been lauded as a way to develop new medicines while offering southern nations and indigenous communities an incentive to preserve their rich biodiversity. But can pharmaceutical profits really advance conservation and indigenous rights? How much should companies pay and to whom? Who stands to gain and lose? The first anthropological study of the practices mobilized in the name and in the shadow of bioprospecting, this book takes us into the unexpected sites where Mexican scientists and American companies venture looking for medicinal plants and local knowledge. Cori Hayden tracks bioprospecting's contentious new promise--and the contradictory activities generated in its name. Focusing on a contract involving Mexico's National Autonomous University, Hayden examines the practices through which researchers, plant vendors, rural collectors, indigenous cooperatives, and other actors put prospecting to work. By paying unique attention to scientific research, she provides a key to understanding which people and plants are included in the promise of 'selling biodiversity to save it'--and which are not. And she considers the consequences of linking scientific research and rural 'enfranchisement' to the logics of intellectual property. Roving across UN protocols, botanical collecting histories, Mexican nationalist agendas, neoliberal property regimes, and North-South relations, When Nature Goes Public charts the myriad, emergent publics that drive and contest the global market in biodiversity and its futures.

Based on international teaching experience with students of statistics, mathematics, finance and econometrics, the book: * Presents new, innovative material alongside the classic theory. * Goes beyond standard presentations by carefully introducing and discussing more complex subject matter, including a richer use of combinatorics, runs and occupancy distributions, various multivariate sampling schemes, fat-tailed distributions, and several basic concepts used in finance. * Emphasises computational matters and programming methods via generous use of examples in MATLAB. * Includes a large, self-contained Calculus/Analysis appendix with derivations of all required tools, such as Leibniz' rule, exchange of derivative and integral, Fubini's theorem, and univariate and multivariate Taylor series. * Presents over 150 end-of-chapter exercises, graded in terms of their difficulty, and accompanied by a full set of solutions online. This book is intended as an introduction to the theory of probability for students in biology, mathematics, statistics, economics, engineering, finance, and computer science who possess the prerequisite knowledge of basic calculus and linear algebra.
Praise for Trade to Win Tom's book Trade to Win brings discipline to the art of trading and teaches us how to block out the static and concentrate on what's important to be a successful trader. Anyone wanting to learn how to be a successful trader needs Tom's insight into futures strategies and market psychology to maneuver through today's markets. --Norman Blake, Sr. Vice President, Stanford Financial Group A good read for any investor. What I found most valuable was Tom's discussion of trade management. Post-trade decision making is critical for successful trading. --Alex Jacobson, Education Officer at the International Securities Exchange (ISE) In Tom Busby's newest book Trade to Win, Pearl of Wisdom #6 advises the trader 'Do not worry about the direction the market goes. Go with the market.' As a marginally successful stock trader for several years, I have painfully learned the frustration and difficulty of adhering to this seemingly simple, yet elusive rule. Tom's methods, classes, and books have helped me tame emotional trading and achieve much needed hope and success. This newest book in the DTI arsenal is another valuable chapter in my trading education and anyone seeking success in trading will profit from Mr. Busby's wisdom, experience, and trading discipline. --Charlie Prince, President, Prince Marketing Inc. This is a real hands-on for all new traders to gain knowledge of the life and psychology of veteran traders. It provides the skills needed to survive in today's volatile markets. I highly recommend this book. --Fausto Pugliese, President, CyberTrading University
