Third, we control for additional standard market return predictors, including the consumption-wealth ratio (CAY), dividend yield (DY), earnings-price ratio (EP), default premium (DEF), term premium (TERM), and stochastically detrended risk-free rate (RREL).
The idea is to determine the KH breakup time dynamically and stochastically using a probability distribution function (PDF) with shape parameters depending on local flow conditions.
The exact probability-based analysis using multidimensional integrals of the systems having stochastically dependent components is also very difficult.
These values are consistent with an upper bound estimate of a micro-crack size of less than 200 [micro]m from the diameter of the protrusions seen forming stochastically along the crack tip in the X-ray images.
For positive system (1) and a given [gamma] > 0, system (1) is stochastically stable and satisfies [mathematical expression not reproducible] if and only if there exist vectors [p.
Renewable sources are stochastically variable, thereby negatively affecting power system operator situational awareness--the ability to interpret current operation status and potential problems.
alpha]] : average profit values obtained under one strategy are stochastically smaller than the ones obtained under the other strategy
Furthermore, with the exception of one larger contribution, the distribution of contributions in the competitive treatment first order stochastically dominates that of the cooperative treatment.
xy] it is possible to test whether the symbols observed are stochastically linearly independent or dependent.
Monotonicity: If one portfolio is first-order stochastically dominant in that it offers higher returns in every state, then the risk associated with that portfolio cannot be higher than that of any other.
This remark equally concerns the debt servicing costs, when the interest on borrowed funds is often linked with stochastically changing global financial parameters and also when the violation of debt conditions traditionally changes the parameters of costs.
Nature responds to this choice by selecting an outcome stochastically according to the probability rule given by quantum theory.
