Weekly micro pricing behaviour in groceries, Britain's most important consumer market, is investigated for 370 precisely defined products matched across the leading three retailers over the moderation period 2004-7 and(More)
In this note we show that the height function of a lattice of flats of suitable classes of matroids satisfies the polymatroidal axioms. Moreover, we present a novel proof, by applying matroid theory, for the fact that the minimum distance of a graph-theoretic code C is the smallest number of edges among the edge sets of cycles of G, where G is the graph(More)

Altmans popular Z-Score and Ohlsons O-Score are, for example, respectively based on linear discriminant analysis and on logistic(More)
