Moonlighting Politicians: Motivation Matters!
(2016)We study selfselection into politics and effort once in office of citizens with different abilities and motivations in a framework where moonlighting is allowed. We find that highability motivated (publicfit) politicians ... 
Moral hazard in financial markets: Inefficient equilibria and monetary policies
(Confindustria, Centro Studi, 2006)This paper presents a moral hazard model of financing in which borrowers adopt two modes of finance, either issuing bonds or applying for bank loans. The bond rate is set by the borrowers, while the loan rate is chosen by ... 
Morse index estimates for quasilinear equations on Riemannian manifolds
(2011)This work deals with Morse index estimates for a solution u is an element of H(1)(p)(M) of the quasilinear elliptic equation div(g) ((alpha + del u(2)(g))((p2)/2)del u,) = h(x,u), where (M, g) is a compact, Riemannian ... 
Motivation mechanisms for participation in humandriven semantic content creation
(2011)In the last few years, semantic technologies are continuously maturing and many applications are adopted in various field. To take a step towards overcoming the knowledge acquisition bottleneck, the challenge of generating ... 
Moving to opportunity, leaving behind what? Evaluating the initial effects of a migration policy on incomes and poverty in source areas
(Taylor & Francis, 2007)Emigration to New Zealand and consequent remittance inflows are dominant features of many Pacific Island countries. Evaluating the effect of these people and money flows on incomes and poverty in the Pacific is potentially ... 
A Multicriteria PerceptionBased StrictOrdering Algorithm for Identifying the MostPreferred Choice among EquallyEvaluated Alternatives
(2017)Indecision constitutes a frequent and significant problem among decision makers (DMs). The substantial amount of potential choices available, the subjectivity and imprecision inherent in the information received, and the ... 
MultiStage Supply Chain Network Solution Methods: Hybrid Metaheuristics and Performance Measurement
(2018)We study a threestage supply chain network (SCN) design problem for a singleproduct system. The SCN is composed of suppliers that provide raw materials for the plants, plants that produce and send the finished products ... 
A Multicriteria Spatial Decision Support System for Solving Emergency Service Station Location Problems
(2015)Earthquakes occurring in urban areas constitute an important concern for emergency management and rescue services. Emergency service location problems may be formulated in discrete space or by restricting the potential ... 
Multiplicity and nondegeneracy of positive solutions to quasilinear equations on compact Riemannian manifolds
(World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte Ltd, 2015)We consider a compact, connected, orientable, boundaryless Riemannian manifold (M, g) of class Cinfinity where g denotes the metric tensor. Let n = dim M >= 3. Using Morse techniques, we prove the existence of 2P(1)(M)  ... 
Multiplicity of solutions of a zero mass nonlinear equation on a Riemannian manifold
(2008)The relation between the number of solutions of a nonlinear equation on a Riemannian manifold and the topology of the manifold itself is studied. The technique is based on LjusternikSchnirelmann category and Morse theory. ... 
Multiplicity of symmetric solutions for a nonlinear eigenvalue problem in ℝn
(2005)In this paper, we study the nonlinear eigenvalue field equation Δu + V(x)u + ε(Δu + W′(u)) = μu where u is a function from ℝ to ℝ with n ≥ 3, ε is a positive parameter and p > n. We find a multiplicity of solutions, ... 
A multivariate copulabased framework for dealing with hazard scenarios and failure probabilities
(2016)This paper is of methodological nature, and deals with the foundations of Risk Assessment. Several international guidelines have recently recommended to select appropriate/relevant Hazard Scenarios in order to tame the ... 
Multivariate copulas with hairpin support
(2014)The notion of a twodimensional hairpin allows for two different extensions to the general multivariate setting—that of a subhairpin and that of a superhairpin. We study existence and uniqueness of dimensional copulas ... 
Multivariate design via copulas
(European Geosciences Union (EGU) / Copernicus Publications, 2011)Calculating return periods and design quantiles in a multivariate framework is a difficult problem: essentially, this is due to the lack of a natural total order in multidimensional Euclidean spaces. This paper tries to ... 
Multivariate heavytailed models for ValueatRisk estimation
(2012)For purposes of ValueatRisk estimation, we consider several multivariate families of heavytailed distributions, which can be seen as multidimensional versions of Paretian stable and Student's t distributions allowing ... 
Multivariate patchwork copulas: A unified approach with applications to partial comonotonicity
(2013)We present a general view of patchwork constructions of copulas that encompasses previous approaches based on similar ideas (ordinal sums, gluing methods, piecingtogether, etc.). Practical applications of the new methodology ... 
Multivariate return period calculation via survival functions
(American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013)The concept of return period is fundamental for the design and the assessment of many engineering works. In a multivariate framework, several approaches are available to its definition, each one yielding different solutions. ... 
Myths and Facts about the Alleged OverPricing of U.S. Real Estate: Evidence from MultiFactor Asset Pricing Models of REIT Returns
(2013)This paper uses a multifactor pricing model with timevarying risk exposures and premia to examine whether the 2003–2006 period has been characterized, as often claimed by a number of commentators and policymakers, by a ... 
Natural experiment evidence on the effect of migration on blood pressure and hypertension
(Wiley: 12 months, 2013)Over 200 million people worldwide live outside their country of birth and typically experience large gains in material wellbeing by moving to where wages are higher. But, the effect of this migration on other dimensions ...
