The Simscript II programming language by Philip J Kiviat( Book )

20 editions published between 1968 and 1973 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A user's and programmer's manual for SIMSCRIPT II that requires only a basic knowledge of computers and programming language translators (compilers). Sections that are unusually difficult or contain features of limited use are marked with an asterisk. The manual is divided into five chapters, corresponding to five language 'levels.' Level 1 is a teaching language designed to introduce programming concepts to nonprogrammers. Level 2 is a language roughly comparable in power to FORTRAN, but departs from it in specific features. Level 3 is comparable in power to ALGOL or PL/I, but with specific differences, and contains information on the new ALPHA mode for alpha-numeric manipulations, on writing formatted reports, and on internal editing. Level 4 contains the entity-attribute-set features of SIMSCRIPT, which have been up- dated and augmented to provide a more powerful list-processing capability. Level 5, the simulation-oriented part of SIMSCRIPT II, contains statements for time advance, event and activity processing, generation of statistical variates, and accumulation and analysis of simulation-generated data. Two new debugging routines, BEFORE and AFTER, enable the monitoring of six complex processes

In addition, he designed and developed SIMSCRIPT -- a computer programming language. SIMSCRIPT has been widely

Risk-return analysis the theory and practice of rational investing by H Markowitz( Book )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nobel Prize-winning Father of Modern Portfolio Theory returns with new insights on his classic work to help you build a lasting portfolio today Contemporary investing as we know it would not exist without these two words: "Portfolio selection." Though it may not seem revolutionary today, the concept of examining and purchasing many diverse stocks-creating a portfolio-changed the face of finance when Harry M. Markowitz devised the idea in 1952. In the past six decades, Markowitz has risen to international acclaim as the father of Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT), with his evaluation of the impact of asset risk, diversification, and correlation in the risk-return tradeoff. In defending the idea that portfolio risk was essential to strategic asset growth, he showed the world how to invest for the long-run in the face of any economy. In Risk Return Analysis, this groundbreaking four-book series, the legendary economist and Nobel Laureate returns to revisit his masterpiece theory, discuss its developments, and prove its vitality in the ever-changing global economy. Volume 2 picks up where the first volume left off, with Markowitz's personal reflections and current strategies. In this volume, Markowitz focuses on the relationship between single-period choices-now-and longer run goals. He discusses dynamic systems and models, the asset allocation "glide-path," inter-generational investment needs, and financial decision support systems. Written with both the academic and the practitioner in mind, this richly illustrated volume provides investors, economists, and financial advisors with a refined look at MPT, highlighting the rational decision-making and probability beliefs that are essential to creating and maintaining a successful portfolio today

Programming by questionnaire : how to construct a program generator by Paula M Oldfather( Book )

6 editions published between 1965 and 1966 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Programming by Questionnaire, or the Program Generator technique, is a method by which many computer programs can be produced at considerable savings in time, effort, and cost. A Program Generator consists of four parts: (1) A Questionnaire, written in English, defining the scope and logic of all of the programs that can be generated. (2) A Statement List containing all the computer commands needed to construct any of the many programs. (3) A set of Decision Tables specifying the commands required from the Statement List as a function of the Questionnaire choices. (4) The Editor program for processing the Questionnaire, Statement List, and Decision Tables, thus building the desired program and providing the user with a list of the data he must supply to use the program.

Risk and lack of diversification under employee ownership and shared capitalism by Joseph R Blasi( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some analysts view risk as the Achilles Heel of employee ownership and to some extent variable pay plans such as profit sharing and gainsharing. Workers in such "shared capitalist" firms may invest too much of their wealth in the firm, contrary to the principle of diversification. This paper addresses whether the risk in shared capitalism makes it unwise for most workers or whether the risk can be managed to limit much of the loss of utility from holding the extra risk. We create an index of financial security based on worker pay and wealth, and find that workers who feel financially insecure exhibit fewer of the positive outcomes associated with shared capitalism, and are less interested than other workers in receiving more employee ownership or even more profit sharing in their workplaces. This response is substantially lessened, however, when accounting for worker empowerment, good employee relations, and high-performance work bundles that appear to buffer worker response toward risk and increase interest in shared capitalism plans. We also discuss portfolio theory which suggests that any risky investment -- including stock in one's company -- can be part of an efficient portfolio as long as the overall portfolio is properly diversified. We show that given estimates of risk aversion parameters, workers could prudently hold reasonable proportions of their assets in employee stock ownership of their firm with only a modest loss in utility due to risk. A good strategy for firms is to personalize individual portfolios on the basis of worker characteristics and preferences, developing investment strategies that would diversify each worker's entire portfolio in ways consistent with individual risk preferences
Modify and restart routines for SIMSCRIPT games and simulation experiments by H Markowitz( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A presentation of routines to be used with any SIMSCRIPT simulation program. They provide snapshot, modify, and restart capabilities for the following game and experiment applications: (1) man/machine games in which the computer simulates a system for a period of time, humans then use the results to decide on changes in policy parameters for the following period, and the computer resumes simulations where it left off but with policy parameters modified; and (2) simulation experiments in which snapshots of the simulated system are recorded on tape at various points in time. After inspecting the periodic and summary print-outs produced by the simulation, an analyst may specify a return to some snapshot, modify one or more parameters, and resume simulation at that point. While this revised simulation is running, additional snapshots may be taken so that the process can be repeated. (Author)
