The Market Survival of Publicly Traded Traditional and Market-Based Financial Intermediaries

Marc Schaffer
2015 Applied Economics and Finance  
Using these volatility differences as a basis, this paper compares the stock market delisting behavior of market-based and traditional financial intermediaries.  ...  Using survival analysis, I find that market-based intermediaries carry greater cumulative incidence of stock market delisting due to firm failure and M&A activity relative to traditional intermediaries  ...  The goal of these provisions is minimize the risk of any potential, catastrophic, failures in the future.  ...

A Comprehensive Exploration of Challenges in Architecture-Based Reliability Estimation [chapter]

Ivo Krka, George Edwards, Leslie Cheung, Leana Golubchik, Nenad Medvidovic
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this article, we address three core challenges for architecture-based estimation of a system's reliability: (1) defining an appropriate failure model based on characteristics of the system being analyzed  ...  First, we show how a failure model can be derived from the system requirements and architecture.  ...  The available design time artifacts, such as system requirements and architectural specifications (step 1), are leveraged to obtain a failure model capturing the characteristics of erroneous behavior -  ...

Estimating the Physical State of a Laboratory Slow Slipping Fault from Seismic Signals [article]

Claudia Hulbert, Bertrand Rouet-Leduc, Christopher X. Ren, Jacques Riviere, David C. Bolton, Chris Marone, Paul A. Johnson
2018 arXiv   pre-print
This analysis also allows us to infer many properties of the future behavior of the fault, including the time remaining before the next slow slip event.  ...  Here we show that, in a laboratory setting, continuous seismic waves are imprinted with fundamental signatures of the fault's physical state.  ...  Note the bimodal behavior of the slip events in regard to the magnitude of the stress and displacement where small failures are interlaced with large failures.  ...
