Maximum Entropy for the International Division of Labor

It is reported that the export share distribution curves can be derived by maximizing the entropy of shares on different products under the product’s complexity constraint once the international market structure (the country-product bipartite network) is given.

Establishment and characteristics analysis of a crop-drought vulnerability curve: a case study of European winter wheat

Abstract. As an essential component of drought risk, crop-drought vulnerability refers to the degree of the adverse response of a crop to a drought event. Different drought intensities and

Dye Removal Potential of Red Pine Cone from Synthetic Wastewater under Optimized Conditions

Synthetic dyes are extensively used in many industrial applications like textile, leather and cosmetics. The release of various harmful dyes from these industries into the environment has attracted

Exploration of biosorption potential of forest industry by-product for removal of reactive dye from aqueous solution

Natural sawdust of Calabrian pine was explored as low-cost industrial by-product for a hetero-bireactive dye removal from aqueous solution in this study. Batch experiments were carried out to

Biosorption of dye from synthetic wastewater using alga enriched in phenolic compounds

In the current study, we report the preparation of modified biosorbent from Spirulina platensis microalga via the high light application in order to enhance its dye biosorption capacity. The modified



Scale-invariant properties of public-debt growth

Public debt is one of the important economic variables that quantitatively describes a nation's economy. Because bankruptcy is a risk faced even by institutions as large as governments (e.g.,

Size-dependent standard deviation for growth rates: empirical results and theoretical modeling.

A stochastic process for multiple cross-correlated variables is proposed where for each variable the distribution of logarithmic growth rates decays exponentially in the central part, the distribution in the tails decays algebraically in the far tails, and the standard deviation of the logarathmic growth rate depends algebraically on the average size of the stochastically variable.


This paper uses cumulative export experience functions to explore the structural dynamics of South Africa's exports for the period 1990-2003. It finds a large spread of emerging non-traditional

Influence of corruption on economic growth rate and foreign investment

We analyze the dependence of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita growth rates on changes in the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI). For the period 1999–2004 for all countries in the world, we

Allometric scaling of countries

Growth, innovation, scaling, and the pace of life in cities

Empirical evidence is presented indicating that the processes relating urbanization to economic development and knowledge creation are very general, being shared by all cities belonging to the same urban system and sustained across different nations and times.

R&D accessibility and regional export diversity

This paper examines the influences of accessibility to R&D on the export diversity in Swedish regions. A theoretical model with fixed R&D cost predicts that spatial knowledge spillovers generate

Intraindustry Specialization and the Gains from Trade

Several recent empirical studies of trade suggest that interindustry specialization and trade, which reflect the conventional forces of comparative advantage, are also accompanied by intraindustry

Quantitative relations between corruption and economic factors

Abstract.We report quantitative relations between corruption level and economic factors, such as country wealth and foreign investment per capita, which are characterized by a power law spanning

The Product Space Conditions the Development of Nations

This study studies this network of relatedness between products, or “product space,” finding that more-sophisticated products are located in a densely connected core whereas less-sophile products occupy a less-connected periphery.
