Researchers from different disciplines may choose to work together for a variety of reasons. Their complementary skills may enable problems to be solved more quickly; they may be better placed to tackle a multi-faceted problem; or they may wish to learn new skills and expand their methodological range. In other cases, research funders may require such an approach. Alternatively, the complexity or high cost of the research may mean that working together is the only viable option if the research… Expand
Paradigm Shifts and Labour Market Reform
The role of ideas in welfare state reform has attracted considerable attention recently, chiefly as a counter-balance to rational actor models. This paper analyses data from a recent study of theExpand
Emergency Response Information System Interoperability: Development of Chemical Incident Response Data Model
A theory driven novel approach is adopted to develop a XML-based data model that prescribes a comprehensive set of data standards for emergency management to better address the challenges of information interoperability. Expand
Approximation by quadrilateral finite elements
We consider the approximation properties of finite element spaces on quadrilateral meshes. The finite element spaces are constructed starting with a given finite dimensional space of functions on aExpand
Logics for information systems and their dynamic extensions
A set of reduction axioms enables us to obtain a complete axiomatization of the dynamic logics, and notions of information and information update are defined, and dynamic extensions of the above logics are presented to accommodate these notions. Expand
Cooccurrence and food niche overlap of two common predators (red fox Vulpes vulpes and common buzzard Buteo buteo) in an agricultural landscape
The relationship between these species with respect to spatial distribution, the abundance of a potentially important prey species (common vole), diet, trophic niche breadth, and niche overlap was studied in western Poland during 2006-2009. Expand
