Better than classical and dynamic mean-variance policy. / CUHK electronic theses & dissertations collection / ProQuest dissertations and theses

January 2010 (has links)
Since Markowitz published his seminal work on mean-variance portfolio selection in 1952, almost all literatures in the past half century adhere their investigation to a binding budget spending assumption in static problem settings and a self financing assumption in dynamic settings. In the mean-variance world for a market of all risky assets, however, the common belief of monotonicity does not hold, i.e., not the larger amount you invest, the larger expected future wealth you can expect for a given risk (variance) level. We introduce in this thesis the concept of pseudo efficiency to remove from the candidates such efficient mean-variance policies which can be achieved by less initial investment level. By relaxing the binding budget spending restriction in investment, we derive an optimal scheme in managing initial wealth which dominates the traditional mean-variance efficient frontier. Moreover, as the general dynamic mean-variance portfolio selection formulation does not satisfy the principle of optimality of dynamic programming, phenomena of time inconsistency occur, i.e., investors may have incentives to deviate from the pre-committed optimal mean-variance portfolio policy during the investment process under certain circumstances. By introducing the concept of time inconsistency in efficiency and defining the induced trade-off, we further demonstrate in this thesis that investors behave irrationally under the pre-committed optimal mean-variance portfolio policy when their wealth is above certain threshold during the investment process. By relaxing the self-financing restriction to allow withdrawal of money out of the market, we develop a revised dynamic mean-variance policy for a market with a riskless asset which dominates the pre-committed optimal mean-variance portfolio policy in the sense that, while the two achieve the same mean-variance pair of the terminal wealth, the revised policy enables the investor to receive a free cash flow stream (FCFS) during the investment process. We further apply the concept of pseudo efficiency to a dynamic market of all risky assets and explore (better) revised dynamic mean-variance policies. By including the free cash flow stream in the total wealth, our proposed policy dominates the pre-committed optimal mean-variance portfolio policy in the sense that while both achieve the same total mean, the revised policy generates a smaller total variance. We reveal in this thesis that the time consistency in efficiency is closely related to the completeness of the market. We further discuss the relationship between time consistency in efficiency and the variance-optimal signed martingale measure (VSMM) of the market. Finally we show that time inconsistency in efficiency can be eliminated by enforcing no-shorting constraint for some market setting. / Cui, Xiangyu. / Adviser: Li Duan. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 72-04, Section: A, page: . / Thesis (Ph.D.)--Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2010. / Includes bibliographical references (leaves 163-170). / Electronic reproduction.

Supply chain strategies and practices: an exploratory study. / CUHK electronic theses & dissertations collection

January 2006 (has links)
Keywords. Competitive strategy, Supply chain strategy, Leanness, Agility, Environmental uncertainty, Moderator, Cumulative model. / Supply chain management has become one of the most popular approaches to enhance the global competitiveness of business corporations today. Thus, it has received more and more attention from practitioners and the academia. However, how to effectively manage the flow of materials from supply sources to the ultimate customer represents a major challenge for today's managers. From the viewpoint of business competition, Porter (1980) identified three general types of strategies, i.e., overall cost leadership, differentiation, and focus. This research tries to make an extension of this typology from an angle of supply chain management. Two general supply chain strategies including leanness and agility are identified in this study. / This research is composed of three studies. Study 1 makes a contribution to investigate the moderating effect of environmental uncertainty on the relationship between competitive strategy and supply chain strategy, and between supply chain strategy and financial performance. The findings prove that environmental uncertainty works as a homologizer in the proposed framework. Using multiple group structural equation analysis, the different strengths of the impact of competitive strategy on supply chain strategy and that of supply chain strategy on financial performance are identified. Study 2 tests the validity of the matrix proposed by Fisher (1997) and Christopher (2000) in which the relationship between product characteristics and supply chain structure is proposed. The findings show that the functional product needs a higher level of the use of the lean supply chain, while innovative products need a higher level of the use of the agile or leagile supply chain. The regression results demonstrate that the match between product characteristics and supply chain strategy indeed lead to higher performance. Finally, study 3 identifies several supply chain management practices through a thorough literature review of about 300 academic papers and classifies them into eight bundles. Based on Ferdows and De Meyer (1990)'s cumulative model, we propose that lean manufacturers should focus on such practices that help them build lean capabilities, and agile manufacturers need to build lean capabilities first before pursuing agility. / Qi Yinan. / "May 2006." / Adviser: Xiande Zhao. / Source: Dissertation Abstracts International, Volume: 68-02, Section: A, page: 0644. / Thesis (Ph.D.)--Chinese University of Hong Kong, 2006. / Includes bibliographical references (p. 175-187). / Electronic reproduction.

Behavior of an ion in a bubble in the ground state

Oh, Joung Hoon 01 January 1991 (has links)
Deuterons might be trapped in a bubble embryo which occur s due to statistical fluctuation in heavy water. The size of the bubble embryo is expected to be an order of a small molecule. The ground state energy level which the deuteron may occupy in the bubble is calculated by solving the Schroedinger equation, and by considering the interaction between the trapped deuteron by a spherical bubble and the surrounding polarized liquid medium (heavy water). From the dependence of the energy eigenvalue of the ground state on the bubble radius, the pressure exerted on the bubble wall is obtained. It is found that the pressure is negatively very large if the bubble radius is about the molecular size (3 to 7 Å). From extrapolating this result to larger sizes, we expect that a bubble would quickly collapse if enough energy is supplied and never grows to a stable bubble when the deuteron is trapped in the ground state.
