Negotiation researchers theorize that individual differences are determinants of bargaining processes and outcomes but have yet to establish empirically the role of individual differences. In 2 studies the authors used bargaining simulations to examine the roles of personality and cognitive ability in distributive (Study 1) and integrative (Study 2)… (More)
A working paper in the INSEAD Working Paper Series is intended as a means whereby a faculty researcher's thoughts and findings may be communicated to interested readers. The paper should be considered preliminary in nature and may require revision. Abstract: I propose a theory aimed at advancing scholarly research in social entrepreneurship. By highlighting… (More)
Stresses on Antarctic ecosystems result from environmental change, including extreme events, and from (other) human impacts. Consequently , Antarctic habitats are changing, some at a rapid pace while others are relatively stable. A cascade of responses from molecular through organismic to the community level are expected. The differences in biological… (More)
Automatic program comprehension is particularly useful when applied to sparse matrix codes, since it allows to abstract e.g. from specific sparse matrix storage formats used in the code. In this paper we describe SPARAMAT, a system for speculative automatic program comprehension suitable for sparse matrix codes, and its implementation.
Can a health-care website stimulate its members to become a `community of care and caring', facilitating both medical `information' and personal `support'? This study of MSWatch.com provides conceptual distinctions about `ties' to a `community' and raises questions about communications designed to serve patients with Multiple Sclerosis. An online survey of… (More)
In this paper we investigate the evolution of a blackjack player. We utilise three neural networks (one for splitting, one for doubling down and one for standing/hitting) to evolve blackjack strategies. Initially a pool of randomly generated players play 1000 hands of blackjack. An evolutionary strategy is used to mutate the best networks (with the worst… (More)
OBJECTIVES Previous fMRI studies have demonstrated that glucose decreases the hypothalamic BOLD response in humans. However, the mechanisms underlying the CNS response to glucose have not been defined. We recently demonstrated that the slowing of gastric emptying by glucose is dependent on activation of the gut peptide cholecystokinin (CCK1) receptor. Using… (More)

While the threat of boycotts has become an important consideration in management decision-making, there has been little research of factors influencing an individual's motivation to participate in a boycott. This paper examines self-enhancement and need for consistency as possible explanations. It also adapts theories about pressure group motivations… (More)
