This paper develops and evaluates a new model for predicting just rewards. The model produces point predictions for individual just rewards based on status characteristics and the expected value of a valued good. The equity model borrows from Berger and colleagues' (1998) reward expectations theory the ability to define different reward expectations.(More)
Samples of meat and meat products for the content therein of carcinogenic N-nitrose-amines were subjected to a fluorometric analysis. In case of positive results the presence of NA was confirmed by cromate-mass-spectrometric and/or mass-spectrometric methods. The mean value for the concentrations of dimethyl-nitrose-amine, diethyl-nitrose-amine and(More)
The theory of status characteristics and expectation states (SCT) explains how macro-level dimensions of stratification and specific abilities come to organize small group processes. The theory argues that people generate expectation states for each other based on relative standings on dimensions of stratification such that people with the more culturally(More)
Dynamic networks have been shown to increase cooperation, but prior findings are compatible with two different mechanisms for the evolution of cooperation. It may be that dynamic networks promote cooperation even in networks composed entirely of egoists, who strategically cooperate to attract and maintain profitable interaction partners. Alternatively,(More)
A spectrofluorometric method of analyzing the carcinogenic N-nitrosoamines in the form of 7-chloro-4-nitrobenzo-2-oxa-1,3-diazole derivatives is proposed. The content of nitroso-amines in a number of products of the vegetative origin was determined. In some samples of beetroots, radish and apples dimethyl-nitroso-amine in concentrations of 0.7--1.5 gamma/kg(More)
Building on a recent theoretical development in the field of sociological social psychology, we develop a formal mathematical model of social influence processes. The extant theoretical literature implies that factions and status should have non-linear effects on social influence, and yet these theories have been evaluated using standard linear statistical(More)
