The article deals with the method of automatic detection of authors ' gender identity on the material of fiction prose of 1980-2000. During this period, there is a special construct, called "women's prose", which is characterized by a special genre and stylistic originality. We set ourselves the task to find out whether the concept of “women's prose” refers only to the non-text reality or is clearly reflected at the level of language. We have collected corpus of texts 1980-2000 and conducted that identified the most effective machine learning algorithms for the classification of male and female prose.

The present paper applies Multiple Correspondence Analysis to test the validity of an existing theoretical model of the phonological system of Russian Sign Language (RSL). We show that comparing the importance of phonological features using ratio plots and MCA is a promising way of revealing non-binary oppositions in phonological systems of human languages irrespective of modality.

We study automorphism groups and birational automorphism groups of compact complex surfaces. We show that the automorphism group of such surface X is always Jordan, and the birational automorphism group is Jordan unless X is birational to a product of an elliptic and a rational curve.

In 2007, Dubouloz introduced Danielewski varieties. Such varieties general- ize Danielewski surfaces and provide counterexamples to generalized Zariski cancellation problem in arbitrary dimension. In the present work we describe the automorphism group of a Danielewski variety. This result is a generalization of a description of automorphisms of Danielewski surfaces due to Makar-Limanov.

We study groups of bimeromorphic and biholomorphic automorphisms of projective hyperkähler manifolds. Using an action of these groups on some non-positively curved space, we deduce many of their properties, including finite presentation, strong form of Tits' alternative and some structural results about groups consisting of transformations with infinite order.

For a geometrically rational surface X over a perfect field of characteristic different from 2 that contains all roots of 1, we show that either X is birational to a product of a projective line and a conic, or the group of birational automorphisms of X has bounded finite subgroups. As an auxiliary result, we show boundedness of finite subgroups in anisotropic linear algebraic groups of bounded rank and number of connected components. Also, we provide applications to Jordan property for groups of birational automorphisms.

The aim of this study is to validate a Russian version of the Schwartz Value Survey using cognitive interviewing. This paper aims to explore the issue of whether respondents interpret the values proposed in the survey in the way intended by the author. An analysis of the results reveals problems with understanding the wording, which are due both to subtle differences in translation and the cultural context. The findings of the qualitative analysis allow for a better understanding of the quantitative data. A number of recommendations are given to the researchers applying this Russian-language SVS.

This paper estimates average and marginal returns to schooling in Indonesia using a non-parametric selection model estimated by local instrumental variables, and data from the Indonesia Family Life Survey. The analysis finds that the return to upper secondary schooling varies widely across individual: it can be as high as 50 percent per year of schooling for those very likely to enroll in upper secondary schooling, or as low as -10 percent for those very unlikely to do so. Returns to the marginal student (14 percent) are well below those for the average student attending upper secondary schooling (27 percent).

Why did the Russian experiment with electoral democracy fail in the early Twentieth century? I examine the results of the elections to the first Duma in 1906 on the province (Guberniya) level in conjunction with the socioeconomic data from the 1897 national census, in order to show that at the onset of the first Duma elections, economic class partitions, an emblem of the radical oppositional campaign, mapped only onto the Center Right party politics of the Octobrists, not the rest of the political spectrum. The Bolshevik vote distribution on the Guberniya level in the 1917 elections to the Constituent Assembly, on the other hand, reveals significant correlations with those of the Octobrists’ in 1906. For both parties, the industrial sector, in contrast to the agricultural workforce, provided a significant boost in the votes. The same reinforcing link between the electorate and the Duma was severed, following interventions in favor of the landed elite from 1907 onward.

This study aims to present that A.V. Mikhailov’s historical method is systematic. Special attention is given to historical-anthropological dimension of the A. V. Mikhailov's theory of baroque. The article shows that Mikhailov's historical anthropology should be viewed as a constitutive part of his “Kulturwissenschaft”, opposed both to the literary science and to the positivist historiography by means of commitment to historize human sciences (the notion of «new historiсism»).

The paper illustrates the governement’s agility in response to opposition protests and the debacle of parliamentary elections. We explore the evolution of Kremlin strategies from a reliance on cooptation to more coercive strategies—a trend that continued after Putin’s election in March. These strategies were successful in mobilizing core voters, creating common identity among participants, and containing the electoral effects of the opposition protests. However, the governement’s’s strategy also embodied significant costs that are likely to have longer-term influences and did little to build a true movement of regime loyalists. The Kremlin’s rigid definition of both the symbols and rhetoric of Putinism left little room for participants to participate in the production of symbols and language. While the narratives imposed from above help Putin’s supporters to participate in political life in limited ways, they remain unable to formulate and articulate independent political positions. As a result, supporters remain highly dependent on the state. Deprived of the benefit of hearing supporters’ demands, this strategy also leaves the state in peril of further losing touch with its political base.

We construct a filtration on integrable highest weight module of an affine Lie algebra whose adjoint graded quotient is a direct sum of global Weyl modules. We show that the graded multiplicity of each Weyl module there is given by a corresponding level-restricted Kostka polynomial. This leads to an interpretation of level-restricted Kostka polynomials as the graded dimension of the space of conformal coinvariants. In addition, as an application of the level one case of the main result, we realize global Weyl modules of current algebras of type ADE in terms of Schubert manifolds of thick affine Grassmanian, as predicted by Boris Feigin.

Bachet's game is a variant of the game of Nim. There are n objects in one pile. Two players make moves one after another. On every move, a player is allowed to take any positive number of objects not exceeding some fixed number m. The player who takes the last object loses. We consider a variant of Bachet's game in which each move is a lottery over set {1,2,…,m}. Outcome of a lottery is the number of objects that player takes from the pile. We show that under some nondegenericity assumptions on the set of available lotteries the probability that the first player wins in subgame perfect Nash equilibrium converges to 1/2 as n tends to infinity.

This article explores color as marketing tool. The goal of the research is to analyze the perception of promotion materials with different color background. Empirical study helps to identify several groups of differently colored promotion messages perception in relation to different product categories. It may be concluded that general concepts of color preferences changed as applied to particular product category field - every one of which has a color language of its own - in terms of marketing and other conventions.

This paper investigates the relationship between operating cost efficiency and the loan quality of Russian banks. It tries to answer the question whether it is always beneficial for banks to be highly cost efficient (the “bad management” hypothesis) or whether this higher cost efficiency could mean inadequate spending on borrower screening, which could subject banks to higher credit risk exposures in the future (the “skimping” hypothesis)? Our main result implies that, while the “bad management” hypothesis holds on average for the banking sector as a whole, the “skimping” hypothesis could be the case for those Russian banks that are not just highly cost efficient, as predicted by Berger and DeYoung (1997) for US banks, but that at the same time pursue aggressive strategies in the market for loans to households and non-financial firms, especially during the pre-crisis periods when banks are too optimistic to pay increased attention to the quality of borrowers in order to extract higher profits in the short run. Interestingly, we show that the “skimping” strategy is not the case for those Russian banks that demonstrate a lower equity-to-assets ratio and that are highly cost efficient at the same time because, as we believe, higher financial leverage forces these banks to filter out low quality borrowers to be able to repay borrowed funds. From perspective of regulatory policy, these conclusions provide clear arguments in favor of differential prudential regulation in Russia, which could, if being implemented, positively affect the loan quality of both banks that are skimpers (through restricting loans growth by higher capital adequacy requirements and/or increased payments to the Russian Deposit Insurance Agency) and banks that are not (through eliminating incentives to grow too fast), thus improving the stability of the banking sector as a whole.

The paper analyses the first French critiques of the two Mikhail Bakhtin’s monographs and the careful exploration of these reviews enables to explain why they presented him as a formalist. It also traces the reasons of irrelevance of the thinker’s ideas in the early French reception.

The Kazakhstan banking system is increasingly viewed as more advanced than the Russian system. Kazakhstan adopted the International Accounting System (IAS) in 2003 and the Basel II norms in 2005, while Russia has yet to fully adopt either IAS or Basel II. In this paper, bank data for 2002-2006 are used to estimate models of bank cost efficiency. In contrast to most previous papers, no significance difference is found for the average cost efficiency scores of banks for the two countries during 2002-2006. How banks are ranked for efficiency depends upon the chosen model (input and output sets). An interesting insight is the finding that most banks in both countries are below optimal size.
