Concise UC Zero-Knowledge Proofs for Oblivious Updatable Databases

Jan Camenisch, Maria Dubovitskaya, Alfredo Rial
2021 2021 IEEE 34th Computer Security Foundations Symposium (CSF)  
We propose an ideal functionality FCD and a construction ΠCD for oblivious and updatable committed databases.  ...  Thanks to this property, we design protocols for e.g. privacy-preserving e-commerce and location-based services where V gathers aggregate statistics about the statements that P proves in ZK.  ...  Priced oblivious transfer (POT) is a protocol between a seller and a buyer that can be applied to e-commerce of digital goods. The seller sells messages (m 1 , . . . , m N ).  ...

The Rise and Fall of Comprehensive Accounting Theories: R. J. Chambers and Continuously Contemporary Accounting

Martin Emanuel Persson
2013 Social Science Research Network  
Chambers fell off a boat delivering mail between Fiji and Australia in the 1970s. The letter was never recovered.  ...  My experience when I began my doctoral studies was similar to that of this letter, and I surely would not have been recovered had it not been for the people around me.  ...  This had to do with the decision on whether to charge the difference between the purchase price (current entry price) and the selling price (current exit price) of assets with no resale market as a sunk  ...

2009 International Journal of Social Economics  
"K(i+d)" overstates and oversimplifies the user cost of capital in all years after the first, because the relevant value of K falls each year, with depreciation.  ...  A normal way of handling this is to multiply K times the Installment Plan Factor (IPF), aka the "Capital Recovery Factor," (and by other names) to get a level annual flow.  ...  MD learned in their experiment with TDR's (Transferable Development Rights).  ...
