Firm Recruitment Behaviour: Sequential or Non-sequential Search?

Jos van Ommeren, Giovanni Russo
2013 Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics  
ABSTRACT Firm Recruitment Behaviour: Sequential or Non-Sequential Search? * In the extensive job search literature, studies assume either sequential or non-sequential search.  ...  For about 55 percent of filled vacancies however, sequential search cannot be rejected.  ...  negative externalities of non-sequential search behaviour deal with a potentially important issue.  ...

Non-sequential Behaviour of Dynamic Nets [chapter]

Roberto Bruni, Hernán Melgratti
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Dynamic nets have been given step or interleaving semantics but, to the best of our knowledge, their non-sequential truly concurrent semantics has not been addressed in the literature.  ...  Concluding Remarks We have defined the semantic foundations for expressing and analyzing the non-sequential behaviour of dynamic nets.  ...  Hence, the notions presented in this paper can serve as a starting point for studying the non-sequential behaviour of asynchronous name passing calculus, for instance, for studying process equivalences  ...

The non-sequential behaviour of Petri nets

U. Goltz, W. Reisig
1983 Information and Control  
The idea of representing non-sequential processes as partially ordered sets (occurrence nets) is applied to place/transition nets (Petri nets), based on the well known notion of process for condition/event-systems  ...  So our result is a further hint that K-density is a significant property of non-sequential processes.  ...  Clearly, the two marked nets of Figs 13 and 14 represent two different real systems with different behaviours (concurrent or sequential firings of a, respectively).  ...

A sequential iteration algorithm with non-monotoneous behaviour in the method of projections onto convex sets

G. Crombez
2006 Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal  
In particular, it follows from (12) that for each point v ∈ C * the sequence of numbers { x k+1 − v } k+1∈{J+1+pN } +∞ p=0 is non-negative and non-increasing, and hence there exists a non-negative number  ...  [5] : the algorithm now is sequential (instead of parallel), and all computations are done in m .  ...

A new procedure for multi-mode sequential flocking with application to multiple non-holonomic mobile robot motion control: mode description and integration principle

Lei Cheng, Wen Xia Xu, Huai Yu Wu, Quan Min Zhu, Yong Ji Wang, Hassan Nouri
2012 International journal of Modeling, identification and control  
This is the first of two-part paper that investigates the multi-mode sequential flocking with application to multiple non-holonomic mobile robot motion control.  ...  Some nature-imitating behaviour modes are integrated into the new sequential flocking strategy, including single-robot potential-based behaviour, singlerobot wall-following behaviour, multi-robot rigid-body  ...  Conclusions This study has illustrated how a group of non-holonomic mobile robots can cooperate with ad hoc sequential flocking behaviour in the irregular obstacles environment.  ...

A fixpoint theory for non-monotonic parallelism

Yifeng Chen
2003 Theoretical Computer Science  
Examples of non-monotonic recursions are studied. Their partitioned ÿxpoints are shown to be consistent with our intuition.  ...  We propose a ÿxpoint technique called the partitioned ÿxpoint, which is the least ÿxpoint of the nonterminating behaviours after the terminating behaviours reach their greatest ÿxpoint.  ...  A miracle is a non-executable speciÿcation that allows no behaviour from some initial states.  ...

Competition avoidance drives individual differences in response to a changing food resource in sticklebacks

Kate L. Laskowski, Alison M. Bell, David Westneat
2013 Ecology Letters  
A recent series of models predicts that competition in a heterogeneous environment might promote between-individual variation in behavioural plasticity.  ...  Whether individuals maintained their level of behavioural plasticity when placed in a new social group depended on the environmental heterogeneity.  ...  If behaviours are domaingeneral, then the behaviour of an individual in a non-social situation is predictive of an individual's behaviour in a social situation, and individuals maintain their behaviour  ...

Mechanisms for the generation and regulation of sequential behaviour

Richard P. Cooper
2003 Philosophical Psychology  
A critical aspect of much human behaviour is the generation and regulation of sequential activities.  ...  This paper surveys a range of such mechanisms, together with a range of empirical phenomena related to human sequential behaviour.  ...  Due consideration of sequential behaviour reveals that there are a number of distinct computational mechanisms or algorithms that may, in principle, generate and/or regulate sequential behaviour, and that  ...
