The Sixth Kondratieff Wave and the Cybernetic Revolution
На основе данных о миграционном приросте/убыли населения городов России за 1991-2009 гг. делается попытка оценить, как влияет на миграционный баланс городов их размер, выраженный в численности населения, и положение в системе центро-периферийных взаимодействий. Обосновывается сложившаяся система миграционной подвижности в зависимости от иерархии поселений в пределах регионов.
Сборник трудов конференции "Нанотехнологии функциональных материалов" за 2014 год. Основной задачей конференции является представление и обсуждение новейших научных результатов фундаментальных исследований и практических достижений в области разработки новых наноструктурированных металлических и керамических материалов с высоким уровнем эксплуатационных свойств, а также технологии их производства.
Venture capital (VC) provides financial and managerial support for new innovative ideas at the initial stages of commercialization. It has helped to find the market for many radical innovations of 20th century, including personal computer, Internet and genetic engineering.
As a part of market economy venture business was not stable from the very beginning. The periods of rapid growth alternated with deep recessions. However each time VC revived anew as the Phoenix due to its very important function in modern knowledge-based economy.
This report presents an analysis of statistical data that prove the existence of several cycles in VC dynamics in the USA and the Great Britain. The main factors of these cycles formation are discussed. The author proposes two possible scenarios of development of VC market for the first 30 years of the new 21st century. A hypothesis is put forward about the relation between VC cycle's amplitude and a phase of Kondratieff's cycle.
After the beginning of the Arab Spring in 2011, explosive global growth was observed for the majority of indicators of sociopolitical destabilization in all parts of the World System. In order to identify the structure of this destabilization wave, we apply a series of statistical techniques such as trend analysis and t-tests to study the degrees of intensification of various instability indicators (as recorded by the Cross-National Time Series database). We reveal explosive global growth in anti-government demonstrations, riots, general strikes, terrorist attacks/guerrilla warfare and purges, as well as in the global integral index of sociopolitical destabilization. On the other hand, no statistically significant growth has been detected for assassinations and major government crises, whereas for such an important indicator of global sociopolitical destabilization, as the global number of coups and coup attempts, we find a statistically significant decrease.
The International Conference founded by the prominent scientist Professor V.P.Sigorsky will be held on April 18-20, 2017 at National Technical University of Ukraine "Kyiv Polytechnic Institute".
The wellknown professionals as well as post-graduate students from Ukraine, Russia, Armenia, Germany, South Korea, Mexico, USA traditionally participate in the conference.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Conceptual Structures, ICCS 2009, which took place in Moscow, Russia, on July 26-31, 2009.
The 18 papers presented together with 5 invited contributions were carefully reviewed and selected from approximately 50 submissions. Originally centered around research on knowledge representation and reasoning with conceptual graphs, over the years ICCS has broadened its scope to include innovations from a wider range of theories and related practices, among them other forms of graph-based formalisms like RDF or existential graphs, formal concept analysis, semantic Web technologies, ontologies, concept mapping and more.
