AN EXAMINATION OF THE SHRIMP FUTURES MARKET Marketing

Abstract. The only two seafood commodities traded in futures markets are frozen white and black tiger shrimps on the Minneapolis Grain Exchange (MGE). These two contracts, however, have failed to attract the expected trade volume based on the underlying shrimp cash market flow. First, we investiga... Continue Reading

DEVELOPMENT OF EFFICIENT AND ACCURATE SKELETAL MECHANISMS FOR HYD... Mechanical Engineering

Hydrocarbons have been widely used to provide energy and power in many engineering applications and their combustion properties are one of the most critical technical issues. Reactions of hydrocarbons, especially with those with large molecules, consist of, e.g., the thermal decomposition of paraffi... Continue Reading

A MULTIPLEXER-BASED DIGITAL PASSIVE LINEAR COUNTER (PLINCO) Electrical Electronics

A ones adder is an important circuit block that is required in many varying applications. This work proposes a design that largely relies on passive transmission-gate multiplexers. Many variations are suggested that can inherently generate a thermometer coded output or one-hot encoded output. The pr... Continue Reading

USAGE, COSTS, AND BENEFITS OF CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION IN OPEN-SOUR... Computer Science

Continuous integration (CI) systems automate the compilation, building, and testing of software. Despite CI rising as a big success story in automated software engineering, it has received almost no attention from the research community. For example, how widely is CI used in practice, and what are s... Continue Reading

UNIVERSITY RESEARCHER AND LAW ENFORCEMENT COLLABORATION LESSONS F... Sociology

In 2012, heads of local law enforcement agencies in Benton County, Oregon, contacted researchers at Oregon State University to discuss a problem: a sharp rise in the amount of contact between police and suspects displaying symptoms of mental illness. This initial contact led to an ongoing collaborat... Continue Reading

THE ECONOMICS OF A RESEARCH PROGRAM KNOWLEDGE PRODUCTION, COST,... Economics

Calls continually are made to provide economic assessments of research program achievements and efficiency. Yet little effort has been given to develop an assessment framework that would focus on the research discovery itself, treating the research manager as a producer and the research technology...

HOMOGENEITY GROUPS OF ENDS OF OPEN 3-MANIFOLDS Mathematics

Each Cantor set C in S3 has for complement an open 3-manifold M3 with end set C. Properties of the embedding of the Cantor set give rise to properties of the corresponding complementary 3-manifold M3. See [Souto and Stover 2013], [Garity and Repovš 2013], and [Garity et al. 2014] for examples of thi... Continue Reading

SUPPORTING COMPARISON OF DEVELOPER PROFILES ACROSS ONLINE COMMUNI... Computer Science

Current software development practices increasingly use code sharing sites and Question and Answer (Q&A) forums, which in turn archive development activities. These activities have been used to triage bugs [1][2], recommend experts for tasks [3][4], or recommend mentors to newcomers [5][6]. However,... Continue Reading

Nanoparticles were then mixed with Vulcan carbon CX72 with a mass ratio of C:XFe2O4 = 40:60. The as-prepared C/XFe2O4 (XFe2O4 = 60 w%) material and polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) were mixed in a mass ratio of 90:10 and dispersed in N-methyl pyrrolidone (NMP). The resulting slurry was pasted onto n... Continue Reading

DIGITAL EXCESS LOOP DELAY COMPENSATION TECHNIQUE WITH EMBEDDED TR... Electrical Electronics

Introduction: In communication systems, rapidly increasing demands on system bandwidth lead to design challenges for the analogue front end. High-speed high-performance analogue-to-digital converters thus became necessary. The continuous-time delta–sigma (ΔΣ) modulator (CT-DSM) is a good candidate d... Continue Reading
