A Bi-directional Big Bang/Crunch Universe within a Two-State-Vector Quantum Mechanics?

Fritz W. Bopp
2018 Foundations of physics  
A two boundary quantum mechanics incorporating a big bang / big crunch universe is carefully considered.  ...  After a short motivation of the concept we address the central question how a proposed a-causal quantum universe can be consistent with what is known about macroscopia and how it might find experimental  ...  A reasonable scenario of the universe contains a big bang (at t = 0), a state of maximum extend (at t = 1 2 T crunch ), and a big crunch(at t = T crunch ).  ...

Fraud, corruption in the private sector and internal control quality

Luminiţa IONESCU
2016 Annals of Spiru Haret University Economic Series  
The global economic crunch had a big impact on the private sector all over the world.  ...  The level of fraud became very high during the economic crunch, due to the globalization and expansion of computer systems.  ...  You will need a proactive strategy for staying abreast of new fraud risks as they emerge, and a process for sharing critical knowledge across the company as it becomes available.  ...

Soft Computing Framework for Routing in Wireless Mesh Networks: An Integrated Cost Function Approach [article]

Shakti Kumar, Brahmjit Singh, Sharad Sharma
2013 arXiv   pre-print
This paper proposes a framework for optimal routing in the WMNs; where we investigate the suitability of Big Bang-Big Crunch (BB-BC), a soft computing based approach to evaluate shortest/near-shortest  ...  A large number of simulations were conducted and it has been observed that BB-BC algorithm appears to be a high potential candidate suitable for routing in WMNs.  ...  Figure 2 shows a basic system consisting of four major modules of the system: fuzzification, inference engine, knowledge base and defuzzification module [16] .  ...

No more crash or crunch: Sustainable credit dynamics in a P2P community

Rameez Rahman, David Hales, Tamas Vinko, Johan Pouwelse, Henk Sips
2010 2010 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation  
We explore the conditions that lead to these system pathologies and present a theoretical analysis that allows us to determine if a community is sustainable or will eventually crunch or crash.  ...  We show using an agent-based model that credit policies, based on bandwidth contribution, and a selfish user model, can lead to both "crunches" and "crashes" where the system seizes completely due to too  ...  RELATED WORK To the best of our knowledge, there hasn't been much work done on studying crunches, crashes and sustainability in P2P systems with credit based incentive schemes.  ...

2016 arXiv   pre-print
CRUNCH provides a load-balanced remapping of data from the powered-down banks alone to the active banks, without requiring sets from all banks to be remapped, unlike naive schemes to achieve load balancing  ...  In this paper, we propose CRUNCH (Cache Resizing Using Native Consistent Hashing), a hardware data remapping scheme inspired by consistent hashing, an algorithm originally proposed to uniformly and dynamically  ...  Nevertheless, CRUNCH provides better system performance than BFO during steady-state.  ...

Risk averse bank managers: Exogenous shocks, portfolio reallocations and market spillovers

Rowena A. Pecchenino
1998 Journal of Banking & Finance  
Various observed banking market behaviors, such as herding, credit crunches, bank reaction to policy changes, etc., are explained as optimal bank responses to idiosyncratic or systemic shocks. Ó  ...  This paper develops a model of the banking market in which individual banks make decisions concerning both the size and risk characteristics of their portfolios, and in which actions of one bank spill  ...  can lead to a credit crunch.  ...
