Accumulating Householder transformations, revisited

Thierry Joffrain, Tze Meng Low, Enrique S. Quintana-Ortí, Robert van de Geijn, Field G. Van Zee
2006 ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software  
A theorem related to the accumulation of Householder transformations into a single orthogonal transformation known as the compact WY transform is presented.  ...  It also suggests an alternative transformation, the UT transform, with the same utility as the compact WY Transform which requires less computation and has similar stability properties.  ...  The UT Transform I − UT −1 U T represents an alternative expression for the accumulation of the Householder transformations.  ...

The "Mortgage Consensus" and the Housing Bubble: Revisiting the Post-Fordism Debate

Luis Flores Jr.
2014 Berkeley Planning Journal  
Preoccupations of scholars have been high levels of income inequality as well as the increased role of finance in the global economy and at the domestic household level.  ...  Missing Link 3: Terms of Historical Transformation "The conceptualization of the transition from one regime of accumulation to another, via an intervening period of structural crisis, stresses contingency  ...  I have suggested that it would be of great use to revisit 1990's geography debates about the nature of post-Fordist regulation, as they offer a framework for steering clear of both production-centric approaches  ...

Claude Diebolt, Faustine Perrin
2014 Revue d' Economie politique  
Having an extra child had therefore a negative effect on the income of the household. The increasing cost of having children for women induced households to limit the number (quantity) of offspring.  ...  Such demographic changes profoundly transformed the structure of the population in France.  ...

Telling the Stories of Asset Accumulation [chapter]

Christine Noe, Dan Brockington
2021 Prosperity in Rural Africa?  
It is notable that asset accumulation appears to have been driven by agricultural activities, although the timing and nature of these changes has varied in each case.  ...  We sought to scale-up that study, to find more case studies where we could revisit families and households over time.  ...  It has to be transformed. This envisaged transformation has, repeatedly, not happened in Tanzania according to official narratives.  ...

The Business Cycle Implications of Banks' Maturity Transformation

Martin M. Andreasen, Marcelo Ferman, Pawel Zabczyk
2011 Social Science Research Network  
We show within a real business cycle framework that maturity transformation in the banking sector in general attenuates the output response to a technological shock.  ...  Implications of long-term nominal contracts are also examined in a New Keynesian version of the model, where we find that maturity transformation reduces the real effects of a monetary policy shock.  ...  Sections 3.1 and 3.2 revisit the problems for the households and calibration are discussed in Section 3.5.  ...
