Using an original mode of presentation, and emphasizing
the computational nature of the subject, this book
explores a number of the unsolved problems that still
exist in coding theory. A well-established and highly
relevant branch of mathematics, the theory of error-
correcting codes is concerned with reliably transmitting
data over a noisy channel. Despite frequent use in a
range of contexts, the subject still contains interesting
unsolved problems that have resisted solution by some of
the most prominent mathematicians of recent decades.
Employing Sage a free open-source mathematics software
system to illustrate ideas, this book is intended for
graduate students and researchers in algebraic coding
theory. The work may be used as supplementary reading
material in a graduate course on coding theory or for

contributions on the occasion of his 65th birthday by
bringing together a unique collection of new essays by
distinguished economists from around the world. Keynes,
Sraffa, and the Criticism of Neoclassical Theory
comprises twenty-three essays, covering themes in
Keynesian economic theory, in the development of the
modern classical approach to economic theory, linear
production models, and the critique of neoclassical
theory. The essays in this book will be an invaluable
source of inspiration for economists interested in
economic theory and in the evolution of economic thought.
They will also be of interest to postgraduate and
research students specialising in economic theory and in
the history of economic thought.

This book studies the dynamics of monetary and fiscal
interactions in the Euro Area. The policy makers are the
European Central Bank and national governments. The
primary target of the ECB is low inflation. And the
primary target of a national government is low
unemployment. However, there is a short-run trade-off
between low inflation and low unemployment. Here the main
focus is on sequential policy decisions. Another focus is
on simultaneous and independent policy decisions. And a
third focus is on policy cooperation. There are demand
shocks, supply shocks, and mixed shocks. There are
country specific shocks and common shocks. The key
question is: Given a shock, what are the dynamic
characteristics of the resulting process?

This book describes companies that conduct international
business at or near the founding of the firm. They
internationalize rapidly--the period from domestic
establishment to initial foreign market entry is often
three or fewer years. Born globals are emerging in
sizable numbers worldwide. Until recently, international
business was mainly the domain of large, well-resourced
multinational enterprises (MNEs). The appearance of large
numbers of born global firms is revolutionizing the
traditional character of international business and
helping reshape the global economy. This book helps
managers and scholars understand the born global
phenomenon. We offer a comprehensive treatment of born
globals, from distinctive features of these companies, to
strategies that they use for international success, to
implications of the phenomenon for international small-
and medium-sized enterprises.

This book addresses three major changes that have taken
place in the last decade in a series of articles compiled
by the authors. First, the landscape of the global
economy changed drastically in the last decade or so.
Second, the explosive growth of information technology
tools, including the Internet and electronic commerce (e-
commerce), has had a significant effect on the way we do
business internationally. Third, it is an underlying
human tendency to desire to be different when there are
economic and political forces of convergence (often
referred to as globalization). When the globalization
argument (and movement) became fashionable in the 1980s
and 1990s, many of us believed that globalization would
make global business easier. Attention to local market
demands remains a global business imperative.

Envoys at the recent United Nations meeting in Cancun,
Mexico, agreed to a climate protection package, which
included a fund that would manage a significant share, of
the $100 billion pledged in 2009 by developed countries
for poorer nations. The money pledged begs the very real
question of what are the real economic costs of a
coordinated international effort to curb global warming?
Cline, whose previous work in this area has garnered a
number of awards, develops a framework that helps
determine these costs. Carbon Abatement Costs and Climate
Change Finance also investigates the policy paths needed
to not only abate carbon dioxide emissions growth but
also decrease it.

This book gives an introduction to the modern theory and
applications of probability and stochastics. The style
and coverage is geared towards the theory of stochastic
processes, but with some attention to the applications.
In many instances the gist of the problem is introduced
in practical, everyday language and then is made precise
in mathematical form. The first four chapters are on
probability theory: measure and integration, probability
spaces, conditional expectations, and the classical limit
theorems. There follows chapters on martingales, Poisson
random measures, Levy Processes, Brownian motion, and
Markov Processes. Special attention is paid to Poisson
random measures and their roles in regulating the
excursions of Brownian motion and the jumps of Levy and
Markov processes. Each chapter has a large number of
varied examples and exercises.

This book is about what we have called the "leadership
illusion", the hardwired habit of writers, researchers
and leaders themselves, when examining success or
failure, to focus on predominantly the individual and
often the context, but very rarely both. The Leadership
Illusion asserts that to make sense of leadership, we
have to understand at the same time the context in which
leaders operate because both are inextricably
interlinked. To try to understand a leader without the
context is only half the tale. This book is an attempt to
tell the whole story. More specifically, the book explores
the relevance of the informal social networks that shape
the leadership context and their role in the delivery of
personal and organisational goals.
