  • Ambiguity and social interaction 

    Eichberger, Jürgen; Kelsey, David; Schipper, Burkhard C. (Oxford University Press, 2003-03)
    We present a non-technical account of ambiguity in strategic games and show how it may be applied to economics and social sciences. Optimistic and pessimistic responses to ambiguity are formally modelled. We show that ...
  • Ambiguity aversion and stock market participation: an empirical analysis 

    Antoniou, Constantinos; Harris, Richard D. F.; Zhang, Ruogu (Elsevier, 2015-04-14)
    Stock market participation is very low, with approximately two thirds of all U.S. households not owning any public equity. This is a puzzle in the context of the basic Expected Utility model. One explanation put forward ...
  • Ambiguity Aversion and the Stock Market Participation: Empirical Evidence 

    Zhang, Ruo Gu (University of ExeterBusiness School, 2015-04-28)
    Theoretical models predict that ambiguity is an asset pricing factor in addition to risk, however few of them have been tested in the real market. This thesis tests one of the hypotheses that, investors’ propensity to ...
  • Ambiguity aversion, company size and the pricing of earnings forecasts 

    Antoniou, Constantinos; Galariotis, Emilios C.; Read, Daniel (2013-01-29)
    Several authors have reported an unconditional size effect in returns around earnings announcements. In this study we show how this finding can be understood as resulting from ambiguity aversion. We hypothesize that analyst ...
  • Ambiguity in financial markets: herding and contrarian behaviour 

    Ford, J.L.; Kelsey, David; Pang, Wei (Department of Economics, University of Birmingham, 2006-11)
    The paper studies the impact of ambiguity on history-dependant beahviour in the standard microstructure model of financial markets. We show that differences in ambiguity attitudes between market makers and traders can ...
  • Ambiguity in Games: Theory and Experiments 

    le Roux, Sara (University of ExeterEconomics, 2012-09-03)
    Ambiguity arises when a decision maker fails to assign a subjective probability to an event. This failure to attach a subjective probability to an event is caused by a lack of information about the event. Ambiguity provides ...
  • Ambiguity in partnerships 

    Kelsey, David; Spanjers, Willy (Blackwell, 2004-07)
    The consequences of ambiguity for partnerships are addressed. Partnerships with symmetric linear production functions are analysed in a Choquet Expected Utility (CEU)-framework. Nash equilibrium in pure strategies is ...
  • Ambiguity, pessimism, and rational religious choice 

    Melkonyan, Tigran; Pingle, Mark (Springer, 2010)
    Using a subclass of the α-maximin expected-utility preference model, in which the decision maker’s degree of ambiguity and degree of pessimism are each parameterized, we present a theory of religious choice in the Pascalian ...
  • Ambipolar diffusion in low-mass star formation. I. General comparison with the ideal MHD case 

    Masson, J; Chabrier, G; Hennebelle, P; Vaytet, N; Commerçon, B (EDP Sciences, 2016-02-12)
    In this paper, we provide a more accurate description of the evolution of the magnetic flux redistribution during prestellar core collapse by including resistive terms in the magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) equations. We focus ...
  • Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring for hypertension in general practice 

    Taylor, Rod S.; Stockman, J; Kernick, D; Reinhold, D; Shore, Angela C.; Tooke, J E (1998-06)

  • America Seen: British and American Nineteenth Century Travels in the United States 

    Hallett, Adam Neil (University of ExeterEnglish, 2010-11-22)
    The thesis discusses the development of nineteenth century responses to the United States. It hinges upon the premise that travel writing is narrative and that the travelling itself must therefore be constructed (or ...
  • AMI-LA radio continuum observations of Spitzer c2d small clouds and cores: Perseus region 

    Scaife, Anna M.M.; Hatchell, Jennifer; Davies, Matthew; Franzen, Thomas M.O.; Grainge, Keith J.B.; Hobson, Michael P.; Hurley-Walker, Natasha; Lasenby, Anthony N.; Olamaie, Malak; Perrott, Yvette C.; Pooley, Guy G.; Rodríguez-Gonzálvez, Carmen; Saunders, Richard D.E.; Schammel, Michel P.; Scott, Paul F.; Shimwell, Timothy; Titterington, David; Waldram, Elizabeth (Oxford University Press / Royal Astronomical Society, 2011)
    We present deep radio continuum observations of the cores identified as deeply embedded young stellar objects in the Perseus molecular cloud by the Spitzer c2d programme at a wavelength of 1.8 cm with the Arcminute Microkelvin ...
  • Amino acids intake and physical fitness among adolescents 

    Gracia Marco, L; Bel-Serrat, S; Cuenca-Garcia, M; Gonzalez-Gross, M; Pedrero-Chamizo, R; Manios, Y; Marcos, A; Molnar, D; Widhalm, K; Polito, A; Vanhelst, J; Hagströmer, M; Sjöström, M; Kafatos, A; de Henauw, S; Gutierrez, A; Castillo, MJ (Springer Verlag, 2017)
    The aim was to investigate whether there was an association between amino acid (AA) intake and physical fitness and if so, to assess whether this association was independent of carbohydrates intake. European adolescents ...
  • Amongst the disciplines: anthropology, sociology, intersection, and intersectionality 

    Tyler, K; Degnen, C (SAGE Publications, 2017-03-27)
    The history of relations between anthropology and sociology in the UK might at best be described as ‘studied indifference’. And yet, they have shared disciplinary interests in many respects, including the concepts of ...
  • Amplification of a cytochrome P450 gene is associated with resistance to neonicotinoid insecticides in the aphid Myzus persicae. 

    Puinean, AM; Foster, SP; Oliphant, L; Denholm, I; Field, LM; Millar, NS; Williamson, MS; Bass, C (Public Library of Science, 2010-06-24)
    The aphid Myzus persicae is a globally significant crop pest that has evolved high levels of resistance to almost all classes of insecticide. To date, the neonicotinoids, an economically important class of insecticides ...
  • Amplification of PCR products in excess of 600 base pairs using DNA extracted from decalcified, paraffin wax embedded bone marrow trephine biopsies 

    Wickham, C L; Boyce, M; Joyner, M V; Sarsfield, P; Wilkins, B S; Jones, D B; Ellard, Sian (British Medical Journal Publishing Group, 2000-02)

  • Amplified mid-latitude planetary waves favour particular regional weather extremes 

    Screen, James A.; Simmonds, Ian (Nature Publishing Group, 2014)
    There has been an ostensibly large number of extreme weather events in the Northern Hemisphere mid-latitudes during the past decade [1]. An open question that is critically important for scientists and policy makers is ...
