Abstract

The book begins with a thorough introduction to complex analysis, which is then used to understand the properties of ordinary differential equations and their solutions. The latter are obtained in both series and integral representations. Integral transforms are introduced, providing an opportunity to complement complex analysis with techniques that flow from an algebraic approach. This moves naturally into a discussion of eigenvalue and boundary vale problems. A thorough discussion of multi-dimensional boundary value problems then introduces the reader to the fundamental partial differential equations and “special functions” of mathematical physics. Moving to non-homogeneous boundary value problems the reader is presented with an analysis of Green’s functions from both analytical and algebraic points of view. This leads to a concluding chapter on integral equations.

Abstract

Since the 2008 financial crisis, modeling of the extreme values of financial risk has become important. Postgraduate programs and PhD research programs in mathematical finance are cropping up in nearly every university. Additionally, many conferences are being held annually on the topic of extreme financial risk. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of papers from leading experts in the area of extreme financial risk

Abstract

The fundamental paradigm shift from traditional value chains to agile service value networks (SVN) implies new economic and organizational challenges. This work provides an auction-based coordination mechanism that enables the allocation and pricing of service compositions in SVNs. The mechanism is multidimensional incentive compatible and implements an ex-post service level enforcement. Further extensions of the mechanism are evaluated following analytical and numerical research methods.

Abstract

An important tool in risk management is the implementation of risk measures. We study dynamic models where risk measures and dynamic risk measures can be applied. In particular, we solve various portfolio optimization problems and introduce a class of dynamic risk measures via the notion of Markov decision processes. Using Bayesian control theory we furthermore derive an extension of the latter setting when we face model uncertainty.

Abstract

The dynamically changing world economy, in an era of intensive development and globalization, creates new needs in both the theoretical models of management and in the practical discussion related to the perception of business. Because of new economic phenomena related to the crisis, there is a need for the design and operationalization of innovative business models for companies. Due to the fact that in times of crisis, the principles of strategic balance are particularly important; these business models can be sustainable business models. Moreover, it is essential to skillfully use different methods and concepts of management to ensure the continuity of business. It seems that sustainable business models, in their essence, can support companies' effectiveness and contribute to their stable, sustainable functioning in the difficult, ever-changing market.This Special Issue aims to discuss the key mechanisms concerning the design and operationalization of sustainable business models, from a strategic perspective. We invite you to contribute to this Issue by submitting comprehensive reviews, case studies, or research articles. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subject to a rigorous peer review procedure, with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.

Abstract

This book establishes several weak limit laws for problems in geometric extreme value theory. We find the limit law of the maximum Euclidean distance of i.i.d. points, as the number of points tends to infinity, under certain assumptions on the underlying distribution. One of the methods is also applicable for some other functionals, such as the maximum area or the maximum perimeter of triangles formed by point triplets.

Abstract

The Power of Conferences: Stories of serendipity, innovation and driving social change asks ten notable Australians to reflect on the role that conferences have played in their personal and professional achievements. Through their stories the power of conferences is revealed, providing evidence of a deep and lasting impact on the development and success of Australian luminaries and their communities. This book arose from a long term collaboration with Business Events Sydney.

Abstract

Il volume propone un percorso di lettura sull’economia politica classica, e su Marx, che si prolunga sino all’opera di Sraffa. Un primo filo conduttore è dato da una visione della teoria del valore che non la riduce a determinazione individuale dei prezzi, ma ne sottolinea l’aspetto macrosociale: in Smith (lavoro comandato) come giustificazione del capitalismo, in Ricardo (lavoro contenuto) come base contraddittoria della teoria della distribuzione, in Marx (lavoro vivo in quanto lavoro astratto in movimento) come indagine sulla costituzione del capitale nel rapporto sociale di produzione. Contrariamente alle interpretazioni più diffuse, le carte inedite di Sraffa, secondo l’autore, consentono di individuare una forte continuità dell’economista italiano con questo Marx. Un secondo filo conduttore consiste nella riflessione circa il destino del lavoro nel capitalismo e oltre, che passa per la messa in questione dell’antropologia smithiana del lavoro sino alla liberazione dal lavoro intravista da Keynes, a cui si oppone la marxiana liberazione del lavoro. Ne emerge una visione apertamente contraria alla centralità totalitaria dell’economico, che nelle due appendici al volume si articola con la questione della natura e la questione di genere. La trasformazione sociale è legata a doppio filo a un cambiamento strutturale della domanda come dell’offerta, e alla ripresa di un protagonismo conflittuale della classe lavoratrice a partire dai luoghi della produzione.

Abstract

Extreme sea levels can lead to hazardous events, such as coastal flooding, erosion, or salt water intrusion, with-wide ranging environmental, societal, and economic consequences. In combination with climate-driven sea-level rise, and, potentially, additional changes in storminess, dynamic wave contributions, and tidal dynamics, the adverse consequences of extreme oceanographic events are expected to escalate in many regions. Integrated coastal zone impact assessments can guide the decisions on the adaptive responses to these changes in the physical environment and for the socioeconomic development of the local communities.

Abstract

Ensuring the sustainability of early stage companies and increasing awareness of the need for balancing targets against different stakeholder groups among young companies are not well developed. Young companies, in the first place, want to achieve financial success very often without regard for aspects such as the environment, positive relationships with employees, suppliers or other stakeholder groups, fulfilling requirements of labor law, etc. Another issue is that of companies whose business models are based on actuarially-preferred concepts, such as sharing economy, sustainable development, e-comers, e-commerce, renewable energy, social media, and others. A key issue is the resignation of companies from an approach to business, based on the foundations of classical economics to the sharing economy. Theory and practice seek new solutions in the sphere of value sharing in these new areas of sharing, and innovative forms of its implementation. Intriguing is the relationship of these business models with sustainability issues, as well as wondering how technology can influence sustainability. A contemporary approach to consumer value fits in with the assumption of a shared economy. It is interesting how it affects the assumptions of sustainability of business. The ongoing changes in the value system of potential consumers create new conditions for the design of sustainability business models and creation of innovation.
