Social Cohesion and Cooperation for Public Goods

-connectivity, where values of K vary across subgroups in the network (White and Harary, 2001). This conceptualization of social cohesion was the first where redundancy on behalf of information transmission was explicated as a key property. The prime reason why cohesive groups exist is that their members can realize public goods. To test if more node-independent paths yield higher levels of cooperation for a public good, we compare two networks in an experiment (Chaudhuri, 2011; Camerer, 2003), one with low

Using behavioural insights for citizen compliance and cooperation

for energy bills appears to be an effective method for achieving cooperation. However, the use of social norms and increased information and professional advice is effective for both compulsory and non-compulsory areas of compliance and cooperation. This has important implications for policymakers, who may be seeking effective methods of encouraging behaviour change. While there are differences in approaches for compulsory and non-compulsory areas of policy, there may be areas that move from non

Navigating our course in these processes with others makes everyone interdependent, and interdependencies are thus too important to be left unorganized. We are thus reminded of this navigation each time we meet cooperation dilemmas. To manage these dilemmas, individuals and societies try to organize these

TESTBED EVALUATION OF SELF-ADAPTIVE TRUST MODEL FOR COOPERATIVE GEOGRAPHIC ROUTING IN WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are often deployed in remote and hostile environments to monitor the mission critical tasks. In such environments, cooperation among nodes plays a vital role for successful execution of protocol operations. However, node cooperation may not be guaranteed when malicious activities are present in the WSNs. Trust management based security has received considerable attention to use along with cryptography based security to improve the cooperation among nodes in the

THE CONCEPT OF MULTIFUNCIONAL WALL - AN ENERGY SYSTEM INTEGRATED IN A SINGLE WALL

In 1981 Mike Davis proposed a new design of the glass wall, which he called a polyvalent wall that would dynamically respond to changing environmental conditions. The idea of an inter-active component in a building envelope has become a source of inspiration for the proponents of external wall concepts. The proposed designs are important because they apply principles of multifunctionality based on cooperation between the wall layers and the dynamic reaction of changing external and internal

The algorithm balances the contradiction between the search speed and the accuracy of the algorithm to a certain extent. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can improve the

U.S. and Whom? Structures and Communities of International Economic Research

Most studies concerned with empirical social networks are conducted on the level of individuals. The interaction of scientists is an especially popular research area, with the growing importance of international collaboration as a common sense result. To analyze patterns of cooperation across nations, this paper investigates the structure and evolution of cross-country co-authorships for the field of economics from 1985 to 2011. For a long time economic research has been strongly US centered

The proposed tracking algorithm can be used for single and multiple target tracking. A clustering algorithm is used in order to minimize the number of active trackers over time and hence save energy. An auction based algorithm is used for the purpose of optimizing the cooperation between trackers. Quantitative

That method requires preparing discussion phases, time, participation of students or volunteer architects and involvement of local NGOs. Nevertheless, this is possible, and it is the most appropriate solution for cooperation between a university and the local administration.

Provision of HPA-1a (PlA1)-negative platelets for neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia: screening, testing, and transfusion protocol

with the platelet suspension immunofluorescence test using three anti-HPA-1a sera. Screening of 2600 plateletpheresis donor samples identified 40 HPA-1a-negative donors. Of these, 36 are active and are coded for recognition on the daily pheresis inventory sheet. Theoretically, assuming four donations per year and donors’ cooperation with scheduling, these 36 donors would enable us to have at least one HPA-1a-negative product available every day.
