1. Discounted dividend model. A formula for determining the projected return on a stock by estimating the present value of future dividends. One compares the discounted dividend return to the current stock price, and, if the former is higher, it indicates that the stock is undervalued. More than one DDM is used to calculate the dividend discount return, but it is important to note that they all assume that the stock will in fact pay dividends, which may not always be the case.

2. ISO 4217 code for the East German mark. It was in use between 1948 and 1990, when it was theoretically pegged to the (West German) deutschemark at par, but it was largely inconvertible. After German reunification in 1990, the deutschemark replaced the East German mark.

Fragmentation Modelling is the phase of distributed database design and implementation in which we split the global distributed database scheme in partitions which will be allocated to network sites.
From distributed database definition, the distributed database is made up by global database and practically various local database so each ETL query and loading process are divided into global processing and local processing.

To describe fragment allocation problem, let's assume that we have a distributed database which is composed of m sites S = {[S.sub.1], [S.sub.2], ..., [S.sub.m]), where 1 [less than or equal to] i [less than or equal to] m and each site Si is characterzed by memory, CPU and a DBMS and all sites are connected by a communication network and assigned a set of F fragments, where each fragment [F.sub.j], is characterized by its size [z.sub.j]
