The aim of this annual workshop is to offer a forum for young researchers from the field of International Economics to present and to discuss their current topics of research with other experts. The workshop also provides the opportunity to gain an overview of recent developments, problems and methodological approaches in this field. Abstract This paper(More)
ThermoData Engine (TDE) is the first full-scale software implementation of the dynamic data evaluation concept, as reported recently in this journal. The present paper describes the first application of this concept to the evaluation of thermophysical properties for binary chemical systems. Five activity-coefficient models have been implemented for(More)
Guided data capture software (GDC) is described for mass-scale abstraction from the literature of experimental thermophysical and thermochemical property data for organic chemical systems involving one, two, and three components, chemical reactions, and chemical equilibria. Property values are captured with a strictly hierarchical system based upon rigorous(More)
ThermoData Engine (TDE) is the first full-scale software implementation of the dynamic data evaluation concept, as reported recently in this journal. The present paper describes two major software enhancements to TDE: (1) generation of equation of state (EOS) representations on demand and (2) establishment of a dynamically updated experimental data resource(More)
Thermodynamic data are a key resource in the search for new relationships between properties of chemical systems that constitutes the basis of the scientific discovery process. In addition, thermodynamic information is critical for development and improvement of all chemical process technologies. Historically, peer-reviewed journals are the major source of(More)
ThermoData Engine (TDE) is the first full-scale software implementation of the dynamic data evaluation concept, as reported recently in this journal. This paper describes the first application of this concept to the evaluation of thermodynamic properties for chemical reactions. Reaction properties evaluated are the enthalpies, entropies, Gibbs energies, and(More)
Previous studies on the link between the interventions of the Bank of Japan (BoJ) and exchange rate volatility have mainly used intervention data as reported by the financial press. We use official intervention data for the period 1993-2000 that were released only recently by the BoJ and find a positive link between of the BoJ and the volatility of the(More)
To a significant degree processes of database development are based upon human activities, which are susceptible to various errors. Propagation of errors in the processing leads to a decrease in the value of original data as well as that of any database products. Data quality is a critical issue that every database producer must handle as an inseparable(More)
