  1. 1. Adaptive blind deconvolution using third-order moments exploiting asymmetry

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Patrik Pääjärvi; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Signalbehandling; Signal Processing;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the use of third-order statistics in adaptive blind deconvolution of asymmetric impulsive signals. Traditional methods are typically based on fourthorder moments, which can discriminate signals with heavy-tailed probability functions (i.e. `spiky' signals) from corresponding filtered versions.

  2. 2. Power Asymmetry Revisited : Reconciling EU Foreign Policy Goals and Enlargement Conditionality in the Western Balkans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jessica Giandomenico; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Statskunskap; Political Science; EU enlargement; EU foreign policy; EU conditionality; power asymmetry; historical institutionalism; path dependence; institutional layering; Western Balkans; Macedonia; elections;

    Abstract : The EU is assumed to have a strong top-down transformative power over the states applying for membership. This leverage is based on a power asymmetry where the applicant states want to join the EU more than the EU wants to enlarge, and that the applicant states gain more than the member states from the enlargement.

  4. 4. Asymmetry and the moderating effects of formal institutional distance on the relationship between cultural distance and performance of foreign subsidiaries in Latin America

    University dissertation from Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Author : Henrique Correa da Cunha; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2019]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Asymmetry; institutional distance; cultural distance; subsidiary; performance; Latin America;

    Abstract : This study investigates how Cultural and Formal Institutional distances and their interaction affect the performance of multinational foreign subsidiaries in Latin America. It is shown that using Kogut and Singh (1988) index or attributing the positive and negative signals to distances in opposite directions fail to capture asymmetric effects as it assumes either symmetry or opposing symmetry.

  5. 5. Harm, Benefit, and Non-Identity

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Filosofiska institutionen

    Author : Per Algander; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; harm; benefit; population ethics; person affecting view; asymmetry; well-being; reasons; autonomy; Practical Philosophy; Praktisk filosofi;

    Abstract : This thesis in an invistigation into the concept of "harm" and its moral relevance. A common view is that an analysis of harm should include a counterfactual condition: an act harms a person iff it makes that person worse off. A common objection to the moral relevance of harm, thus understood, is the non-identity problem. READ MORE
