In this paper, we explore the dynamic properties of an endogenous growth model with finite patent length. We show that there exists a unique equilibrium growth path and that this path exhibits damped oscillations in contrast to the equilibrium path of an endogenous growth model with infinite patent length. We also examine the effects of patent policy on… (More)
The purpose of this paper is to examine functional regions of the completely sequenced DNA data of Ti and Ri plasmids, based on codon usage similarity. It is shown that a successful classification of functional regions is obtained by using statistical measures of codon usage dissimilarity and correspondence analysis.
