Capturing and using design rationale is becoming a hot topic for software architects, as architectural design decisions are now considered first class entities that should be recorded and documented explicitly. Capturing such architecture knowledge has been underestimated for several years as architects have been only focused on documenting their… (More)
This paper provides the proofs to the analysis of a continuous time matching model with saving in Bayer and Wälde (2010a). The paper proves the results on consumption growth, provides an existence proof for optimal consumption and a detailed derivation of the Fokker-Planck equations. Large parts of this paper were written while the authors were working at… (More)
The objective of this study was to do an epidemiological and costs analysis of the impact of road traffic injuries on the demand for emergency room services at hospitals located in the city of Cuernavaca, Mexico.

We apply the gravity model to examine the effects of the Andean Community and Mercosur on both intra-regional and intra-industrial trade in the period 1980-1997. After accounting for size and distance effects, the Andean Community preferential trade agreements had a significant effect on both the differentiated and reference products, in particular capital… (More)
This paper describes the ADDSS tool which enables capturing and documenting architectural design decisions in order to avoid knowledge vaporization.
Architectural Knowledge Management (AKM) has been an active research area in the last decade; the importance of making the right architectural decisions -- and making these at the right time -- has been recognized by the contemporary software engineering practices. Several AKM meta-models, templates and tools have been proposed and applied in practice to… (More)
