Excess Values for Cooperative Games with Transferable Utilities and Double Consistent Allocation Methods
The processing of probabilistically uncertain knowledge patterns in intellectual decision support systems falls into three kinds of probabilistic-logic inference, such as reconciliation, a priori and a posteriori inference. The paper presents formulae that allow for putting the process down in terms of matrix-vector language.
A collection of TU games solutions intermediate between the prekernel and the prenucleolus is considered. All these solutions are Davis-Maschler consistent, symmetric and covariant. Each solution from the collection is parametrized by a positive integer k such that for all games with the number of players not greater than k, the solution for parameter k coincides with the prenucleolus, and for games with more than k players it is maximal, i.e. it satisfies the "k-converse consistency". The properties of solutions are described and their characterization in terms of balancedness is given.
Inconsistency of business processes can affect company profits and lead to the loss of regular customers and reputation in the market. Well managed business process has one key distinctive feature – a consistency. Checking the consistency of business process helps to reveal hidden bugs in the process model, but requires considerable labor costs and analytics. We compared two approaches to verifying consistency. The first approach is based on generating object life cycles for each object type used in process and supported by special tool as an extension for IBM WebSphere Business Modeler. Another one is a proposition to use DEMO methodology for verifying consistency. The results of research show that DEMO methodology enables significantly reduce labor costs and improve quality of analyze
The paper develops a new extension of the sequential preference condition, which leads to unique stable matching in all subpopulations, obtained by consistent restrictions of the marriage matching problem. Under the new condition, the Gale–Shapley algorithm is stable, consistent, strategy-proof, Pareto optimal for men, and Pareto optimal for women.
Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
One of the most important indicators of company's success is the increase of its value. The article investigates traditional methods of company's value assessment and the evidence that the application of these methods is incorrect in the new stage of economy. So it is necessary to create a new method of valuation based on the new main sources of company's success that is its intellectual capital.
