  2. Integer Polynomial Optimization in Fixed Dimension 

    Zemmer, Kevin (2017)
    The problem of optimizing multivariate scalar polynomial functions over mixed-integer points in polyhedra is a generalization of the well known Linear Programming (LP) problem. While LP problems have been shown to be polynomially solvable, their extension to mixed-integer points, known as Mixed-Integer Linear Programming (MILP), is NP-hard. However, if the number of integer variables is fixed, MILP is polynomially solvable. We develop ...

  4. Political Multi-task Problems, Incentive Pay and Citizen Participation 

    Ebrahimi, Afsoon (2017)
    We analyze the extent and effectiveness of electoral accountability and the problems related to keeping the politicians accountable. We illustrate the importance of developing incentive tools to discipline the incumbents. We propose "incentive pay" as an effective tool and we analyze its potentials and limitations. To assess the appropriate incentive schemes, we first explore the sources of (re)election incentives for politicians. To ...

  6. Managing Trade-Offs in Coffee Agroforests 

    Nesper, Maike (2017)
    Agroforestry systems provide multiple ecosystem services and are refuges for diverse flora and fauna. Coffee is one of the main tropical agroforestry crops and of global economic importance. Over recent decades, coffee agroforestry systems have been increasingly intensified by the replacement of native shade tree diversity with one or few, often non-native, tree species. Such reduction in tree diversity might have implications for ecosystem ...

  10. Organizing for Digitalization: An Exploration of Strategic Change in the Capital Goods Industry 

    Windisch, Georg (2017)
    Strategic change is necessary for an organization’s long-term survival, innovativeness and ability to sustain competitive advantage. However, it also puts the organization at risk. In fact three out of four strategic change initiatives fail (Decker et al., 2012; Ewenstein, Smith, & Sologar, 2015). This thesis research is aimed at supporting organizations that decide to under-take strategic change. It is aimed also at deepening our theoretical ...
