Dynamics of generalizations of the AGM continued fraction of Ramanujan: divergence

We examine numerous generalizaions of the AGM persevered fraction of Ramanujan encouraged by way of a chain of modern articles during which the validity of the AGM relation and the area of convergence of the continuing fraction have been made up our minds for sure advanced parameters [2, three, 4]. A learn of the AGM endured fraction is comparable to an research of the convergence of sure distinction equations and the steadiness of dynamical platforms.

Generalized Functions, Vol 4, Applications of Harmonic Analysis

Generalized services, quantity four: purposes of Harmonic research is dedicated to 2 common topics-developments within the concept of linear topological areas and development of harmonic research in n-dimensional Euclidean and infinite-dimensional areas. This quantity in particular discusses the bilinear functionals on countably normed areas, Hilbert-Schmidt operators, and spectral research of operators in rigged Hilbert areas.

Example text

Aldrich and Weiss (1981), examining income for a sample of small business owners, found that workforce size is a powerful predictor of income. g. McEachern, 1975) has considered whether size or performance was a more important determinant of the salaries of top managers, but in no case is the assertion made that size is unimportant in affecting salary. It is clear that the correlation between organizational size and 32 Jeffrey Pfeffer salary is less in the US than in Japan (Clark, 1979), where the relationship is very, very strong.

Indeed, the higher one goes in an organization, the more pervasive control becomes. " In their study of the careers of Wisconsin school superintendents, March and March noted that, in large measure, careers could be modeled as a random process. They concluded: most of the time most superintendents are organizationally nearly indistinguishable in their behaviors, performances, abilities, and values. This is partly a consequence of the filters by which they come to the role, partly a consequence of the ambiguity of inference in educational settings, partly a consequence of the long-run stability of .

A somewhat more plausible argument is that the position signaled (Spence, 1974) to the world that this individual possessed certain skills and abilities. Although this signaling or visibility function is consequential, it seems fair to state that there are many positions in organizations that convey power just because of occupying the position, and this power is translated into power in an intercorporate or interorganizational network. At that point, it seems reasonable to assert that the interorganizational power is a property of the position and the organization, not of the particular individual who happens to occupy the position at that moment.
