In the abscence of a global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, individual countries have introduced national climate policies. Unilateral action involves the risk of relocating emissions to regions without climate regulations, i.e., emission leakage. A major channel for leakage are price changes in the international oil market. Previous studies(More)
This paper concerns function spaces with varying smoothness and is a self-contained part of [8]. We define the spaces B0 p (R n), where the function S : x 7→ s(x) is negative and determines the smoothness pointwise. First we prove basic properties and then use different wavelet decompositions to get information about local smoothness behavior. The main(More)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has a major impact on patient health and health system resources. The prevalence of kidney disease is increasing, with Manitoba being one of the provinces in Canada with the highest per capita rate of CKD and end stage renal disease (Anonymous, Canadian organ replacement register annual report: treatment of end-stage organ(More)
A taxonomic revision of the subgenus Calosilpha Portevin, 1920 (of the genus Necrophila Kirby & Spence, 1828) through Asia is presented. Four valid species are recognized: (1) Necrophila (C.) brunnicollis (Kraatz, 1877), widely distributed from Bhutan and China: Yunnan province to Far East of Russia and Japan (including Ryukyu Islands); (2) N. (C.)(More)
In this paper we establish sharp estimates of rearrangements of functions in terms of moduli of continuity. Such estimates have been studied by many authors including classics. The modern approach to such estimates comes from the effort to solve a problem posed by Ul’yanov [23]. Various estimates, mostly in the setting of Lebesgue spaces, were obtained for(More)
