This paper uses a three-stage least squares model to reveal whether the utility functions
of donors and aid recipients are interdependent as the theory of two-sided markets predicts.
Figure 1 compares two exponential utility functions
for varying levels of risk tolerance - risk averse vs.
3) Finally, although our energy allocation algorithm is proposed for soft QoS traffic type it is also suitable for hard QoS or best effort QoS traffic type when utility function
is very steep or flat.
This article reinvestigates the impact of the concavity of an agent's utility function
on self-insurance and self-protection decisions when they are modeled in a two-period sense.
9) So, empirical estimation of Equation (1) assumes that all consumers have identical Cobb-Douglas utility functions
The multi-attribute utility theory was used for the calculation of the overall utility functions
used to define the ranking of strategies for minimization of risks caused by information asymmetries in the construction phase offered by Schieg (2008).
Formed utility functions
show that in totality of characteristics the most durable are the samples obtained under medium pressure during the printing nip at double side intaglio printing.
In simple models, preference coefficients in utility functions
Specifically, assume that the utility functions
for general goods consumption and computers have different degrees of curvature:
They integrated utility functions
with the variable interdependent parameters method to evaluate alternatives through an additive value function regarding mean time to repair, contract cost, and the geographical spread of the candidate's service network, the candidate's reputation and the compatibility of company cultures.
Furthermore, since money is used to acquire goods and services that in turn impacts consumption, it is posited that the income velocity of money is positively related to the marginal propensity to consume, given that money and consumption are arguments in the utility function
of the representative agent.
These 11 peer-reviewed papers from that gathering consider such aspects as Calabi-Bernstein problems for spacelike slices in certain generalized Robertson-Walker spacetimes, generalized Einstein metric conditions, projective structure in space-times, time functions as utility functions
, and homologically maximizing geodesic in conformally flat tori.
