A comprehensive guide to China's public, private, and internal audit system Study on the Auditing Theory of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics provides a comprehensive overview of China's auditing practices. Recent years have seen the National Audit Office of China (CNAO) making remarkable headway not only in China by guaranteeing the healthy operation of the economy and society and improving national governance through government auditing, but also in the international arena by carrying out audits with the United Nations. With constant development in the practice, an audit theory with socialist Chinese characteristics has taken shape, centering on the premise that government auditing serves as the cornerstone and safeguard of national governance. At the XXI INCOSAI held in 2013 in Beijing, the theme of “national audit and national governance” proposed and chaired by CNAO, was met with widespread approval by participants from over 160 countries, and led to the endorsement of the Beijing Declaration, which makes it a priority and target for audit institutions to promote good national governance. To explore the nature and development of government auditing, this book probes into the history and reality, and theories and practices of auditing in various countries, and puts forward the assertion that, “as a cornerstone and important safeguard for national governance, government auditing is an ‘immune system’ endogenous within the synthetical system of national governance, with functions of precaution, revelation and defense.” Furthermore, China’s socialist auditing theory has been elaborated in nine aspects, nature, functions, goals, features, methods, management, framework of regulations and standards, IT application and culture, covering the new concepts, methodologies, techniques and achievements of China's government auditing. This book is highly relevant, practical, and readable. Jiayi Liu, the chief author, is the Auditor General of China and the current Chairman of INTOSAI Governing Board. In 2013 he won the United Nations Peace Prize in recognition of his auditing work for UN peacekeeping operations.

Asokan Anandarajan, Gary Kleinman International Auditing Standards in the United States. Comparing and Understanding Standards for ISA and PCAOB

International auditing of publicly owned corporations is governed largely by either U.S. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) auditing standards or International Standards on Auditing (ISA) established by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC). In some respects, the U.S. PCAOB and ISA are similar, but in other ways they are not. In International Auditing Standards in the United States, the authors describe key differences between PCAOB auditing standards and ISA. The goal in doing so is to provide students, managers, and researchers with a clear, concise guide to the major differences between PCAOB and ISA standards. Understanding these differences will provide the reader with a greater appreciation of the differences in the auditing process between nations, and a greater understanding of what the audit opinion means as issued in different parts of the world. Asokan Anandarajan, professor of accounting and accounting information systems at the School of Management, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, NJ. He has an MBA and MPhil from Cranfield University, UK and a PhD in accounting from Drexel University, Philadelphia. His research interests relate to earnings management and expectation gap auditing standards. He has published in many peer reviewed research journals including: Accounting Horizons, Auditing: A Journal of Practice and Theory, Accounting and Finance, and Advances in Accounting.

Yuko Oso Willis, Sultan Indhamood Omer Personal Characteristics and Performance in Mathematics

In Somaliland mathematics is performed poorly in secondary schools. In 2010-2014, the mean score of mathematics was 53.95% against 73.72% in Languages, 68.68% in Sciences, and 83.16% in S/Studies. But the influence of personal characteristics of the teacher had not been investigated. Guided by Trait Theory of Personality, the study used a cross sectional research design, on a stratified sample of 350 students and 16 teachers in 10 secondary schools in Borama District, in February of 2014. The study found teacher gender (t [14] = -.276, p = .785), and teacher qualification (F [1, 14] = .578, p = .568) had no significant influence on students' performance. But teacher experience (F [1, 14] = 4.375, p = .022), and self-efficacy (F [1, 14] = 10.790, p = .000) had a significant influence on students' performance. The study concluded that teacher's personal characteristics influence performance of students in mathematics. The study recommends that MoEHS conduct awareness education to change the attitude that mathematics is a male friendly subject; and that an experimental study be done to determine the actual effect of teachers' personal characteristics on the performance of students.

Tijana Gonja Motivation during the financial crisis

Document from the year 2011 in the subject Psychology - Work, Business, Organisational and Economic Psychology, grade: 1, University of Vienna, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to address the impact of the financial crisis of 2008 on changes in motivation, and job characteristics proposed in the Job Characteristics Model. The thesis summarizes the most important motivation theories in great detail.The sample consisted of 272 subjects from different industries. Regressions and multinominal logistic regression were used to analyze the hypotheses of the study. This study has provided only partial support for the applicability of the JCM during economic crisis. Whereas dealing with others, task identity and autonomy predicted the levels of internal work motivation significantly; the other job characteristics did not lead to significant results. Other than expected GNS did not moderate the relationship between the job characteristics and motivation, however, interestingly it had a mediating role between autonomy/dealing with others and motivation. Procedural constrains did not have an effect on motivation. The results generally support the Job Characteristics Model's predictions that task variety and worker autonomy are positively associated with labor productivity. The quality of products and services on the other hand, was only associated with task variety.

Paul R. Halmos Lectures on Boolean Algebras

2013 Reprint of 1963 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. The theory of Boolean algebras is one of the most attractive parts of mathematics. On the one hand, Boolean algebras arise naturally in such diverse fields as logic, measure theory, topology, and ring theory, so that the study of these objects is motivated by important applications. At the same time, the theory which has been developed constitutes one of the most elegant parts of modern algebra. Finally, the subject still poses many challenging questions, some of which have considerable importance. A graduate student who wishes to study Boolean algebras will find several excellent books to smooth his way: for an introduction, the book by Halmos is probably the best of these monographs. It offers a quick route to the most attractive parts of the theory.

David Lee Contextualization of Sufi Spirituality in Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century China

Liu Zhi (c.1662-c.1730), a well-known Muslim scholar in China, published in Chinese outstanding theological works, short treatises, and easy-to-memorize short poems on Islam. He encountered various challenges in his interpretation and transmission of Islamic texts. First, traditional Arabic and Persian Islamic texts used Arabic and Persian concepts to explain Islam. This book answers the question, did Liu Zhi communicate difficult Islamic concepts? Second, Islam has insisted on monotheism. This book discusses whether and how Liu Zhi integrated the basic religious living of the Hui Muslims into their pluralistic Chinese culture. Finally, Muslims have settled over hundreds of years in various parts of China. Were Liu Zhi's works able to make a substantial difference in the life and thought of Hui Muslims in China? Liu Zhi's success was due to his method of contextualization, integrating the Muslim way of life into Chinese culture. This book is an in-depth study of Liu Zhi's contextualization of Islam into Chinese culture that argues that his contextualization has not deviated from the basic tenets of Islamic belief.""Scholars have previously focused on the innovative nature of Islamic contextualization in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century China. Lee's work goes further, firstly, by focusing on (1) a significant Muslim from the network of scholars in this period, Liu Zhi; (2) his uniquely indigenized use of the Akbarian tradition both for teaching and a...

Saadet Yetiskin Flow, motivation, and job-change history in British and Hong Kong Chinese workers

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Psychology - Work, Business, Organisational and Economic Psychology, grade: B + (62), London Metropolitan University, course: BSc Psychology, language: English, abstract: Flow is a state of optimal engagement in, and intrinsic enjoyment, of an activity. This study investigated the role of employment position and the prevalence of flow in work. In agreement with Self-Determination Theory (Ryan & Deci, 2000) and McClelland's (1958) Theory of Needs it was hypothesised that managers will be more likely to experience flow in work. The relationship between employment position and job change history also was investigated. In agreement with Herzberg's (1966) Motivator-Hygiene theory it was hypothesised that managers will show less job changes in their career. In context with the poised hypothesis the differences in motivational traits between managers and subordinates were also explored. A sample of 36 UK Nationals consisting of 20 mangers and 16 subordinates completed the Work Questionnaire (FWQ) and the Work Preference Inventory (WPI). The analysis was based on two samples. The Chinese sample encompassed 4 managers and 50 subordinates. The results supported the first hypothesis suggesting that flow theory may be relevant to understanding high performance in organisations. There was no support for the hypothesis that there was an association between employment position and job change history. This is the second hypothesis...

David Gotcher Immigrant Economic Attainment David Gotcher Immigrant Economic Attainment Новинка

David Gotcher Immigrant Economic Attainment

This book examines variation in the economic attainments of immigrants to the United States from Latin America, relying primarily on data drawn from the 1990 census. The purpose is to explain as accurately as possible why this variation occurs. Typically, researchers have chosen between two competing explanations. One, human capital theory, contends that variation in economic attainment is a product of different characteristics of individuals. The other, social capital theory, contends that variation in economic attainment is a product of differences in characteristics of the societies from which the workers come. The question is whether we must choose one over the other. Given that both theories have empirical support, the challenge is to build an appropriate methodology that allows us to partition the variation in economic attainments, identifying how much is explained by individual and how much by group characteristics.

Chennupalli Jaya Subba Reddy, Kalathuru Suvarna Some Studies on Right Alternative Rings

The study of non-associative rings has yielded many interesting results. The special theories like the theory of alternative rings, in which the associative law is replaced by a weak substitute,have applications almost comparable to the theory of associative rings. The study of right alternative rings is bound to be useful, for it is a valuable tool in ares of mathematics such as Graph theory, Functional analysis as well as in more practical world of Mathematical Economics, Computer Science and Engineering.

Ph.D. James R. Jones Primary Theories of Crime and Victimization. Second Edition

This text focuses on the history of criminology, which includes the criminological time periods, persons most associated with each era, and their contentions and contributions. The earlier crime research epochs that are the concentration of the beginning of the text are the classical school of criminology, positivist criminology, sociological criminology (also known as the Chicago school), conflict criminology, and developmental criminology. It also concentrates on the ways crime is recorded in the United States and the strengths and weaknesses of each method. The focal point of the crime recording section of the text is on the Uniform Crime Report (UCR), National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), and self-report surveys. The theories of crime and delinquency that are examined are strain theory, differential association theory, conflict theory, social bonding theory, rational choice theory, social structure theory, social disorganization theory, cultural deviance theory, differential association theory, differential reinforcement theory, labeling theory, and theories of victimization. Finally, the text concludes with chapters on causes of violent crimes, juvenile delinquency, white-collar crime, and terrorism.

Victor G Kac, Ashok K Raina BOMBAY LECTURES ON HIGHEST WEIGHT REPRESENTATIONS OF INFINITE DIMENSIONAL LIE ALGEBRA

This book is a collection of a series of lectures given by Prof. V Kac at Tata Institute, India in Dec '85 and Jan '86. These lectures focus on the idea of a highest weight representation, which goes through four different incarnations.The first is the canonical commutation relations of the infinite-dimensional Heisenberg Algebra (= oscillator algebra). The second is the highest weight representations of the Lie algebra gl∞ of infinite matrices, along with their applications to the theory of soliton equations, discovered by Sato and Date, Jimbo, Kashiwara and Miwa. The third is the unitary highest weight representations of the current (= affine Kac-Moody) algebras. These algebras appear in the lectures twice, in the reduction theory of soliton equations (KP → KdV) and in the Sugawara construction as the main tool in the study of the fourth incarnation of the main idea, the theory of the highest weight representations of the Virasoro algebra.This book should be very useful for both mathematicians and physicists. To mathematicians, it illustrates the interaction of the key ideas of the representation theory of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras; and to physicists, this theory is turning into an important component of such domains of theoretical physics as soliton theory, theory of two-dimensional statistical models, and string theory.

Explore the foundations and modern applications of Galois theory Galois theory is widely regarded as one of the most elegant areas of mathematics. A Classical Introduction to Galois Theory develops the topic from a historical perspective, with an emphasis on the solvability of polynomials by radicals. The book provides a gradual transition from the computational methods typical of early literature on the subject to the more abstract approach that characterizes most contemporary expositions. The author provides an easily-accessible presentation of fundamental notions such as roots of unity, minimal polynomials, primitive elements, radical extensions, fixed fields, groups of automorphisms, and solvable series. As a result, their role in modern treatments of Galois theory is clearly illuminated for readers. Classical theorems by Abel, Galois, Gauss, Kronecker, Lagrange, and Ruffini are presented, and the power of Galois theory as both a theoretical and computational tool is illustrated through: A study of the solvability of polynomials of prime degree Development of the theory of periods of roots of unity Derivation of the classical formulas for solving general quadratic, cubic, and quartic polynomials by radicals Throughout the book, key theorems are proved in two ways, once using a classical approach and then again utilizing modern methods. Numerous worked examples showcase the discussed techniques, and background material on groups and fields is provided, supplying readers with a self-contained discussion of the topic. A Classical Introduction to Galois Theory is an excellent resource for courses on abstract algebra at the upper-undergraduate level. The book is also appealing to anyone interested in understanding the origins of Galois theory, why it was created, and how it has evolved into the discipline it is today.

Additionally, Brachingers new developed Index of Perceived Inflation is introduced analyzed and critically reviewed. Therefore the term paper is structured as followed:To understand the basic underlying of Brachingers theory, it is necessary to refer to the Prospect Theory, developed by Kahneman and Tversky in 1979. The main focus from Prospect theory is laid on its assumptions. In detail, the first section starts with a brief thought experiment. Afterwards the concept of reference dependency and loss aversion will be introduced. The second part of this paper deals with Brachingers work on the theory as well as on the Index of Perceived Inflation. It is shown how Brachinger derived his index from the general Laspeyres formula by adjusting for several restrictions from the Prospect theory.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Mathematics - Number Theory, grade: Postgraduate, University of Sheffield, language: English, abstract: This document is a continuation of my Semester 1 project on class field theory. In the previous work, we made a rounded exposition of the fundamentals of class field theory but in order to preserve the document length the main proofs had to be skipped. We concentrate on filling in the gaps in this second installment. Due to the need to complete the arguments left open last semester and the need for applications this part of the project is a little longer than it should have been. It was not mentioned in the previous project but the class field theory we are studying here is global class field theory. There is such a thing as local class field theory in which we study the Abelian extensions of local fields (essentially fields that arise as completions of a number field with respect to places). Actually we touch on these ideas slightly in this project but never quite get to de_ning a local Artin map and looking at the local analogues of the main theorems of global class field theory.

Throughout history, the thinking of Western Europe and America has often dominated scholarly conversation, even on objects of study outside of those cultures. Thus Western academic inquiry into Chinese philosophy, for example, from Confucius and Laozi to Mozi and Chen Liang, has rarely engaged with scholarly work from China itself. This has been the West's great loss. Penn State University Press is pleased to have entered into an agreement with Nanjing University Press to allow greater access to the critical work of Chinese scholars concerning prominent Chinese thinkers. These volumes, all displaying the text in both Chinese and English, offer unique, fresh, and provocative assessments of these essential Chinese philosophical and intellectual figures.

Heike Löber Corporate Management, Corporate Social Responsibility and Customers. An Empirical Investigation

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of corporations is a trend today. However, the more companies are practicing it, the less it becomes a unique business strategy helping to differentiate from competitors. For that reason, this study examines whether an integration of customers in all decisions and/or the carrying out of different CSR activities leads to it being a more effective marketing strategy. In the conceptual part, a definition of CSR is given: Different approaches are presented reaching from a more detailed one dealing with economic, legal, ethical and discretionary responsibilities according to the pyramid of CSR, to a less specific one, which is taken as the basis of the paper. Key characteristics of CSR as well as different motivations exemplified in the normative and the business case are described and a critical evaluation of CSR is taken into consideration by means of the shareholder view of CSR and the stakeholder theory. Moreover, CSR in Germany is compared with CSR in America in order to give a global perspective of the CSR phenomenon. Furthermore, the most common CSR activities are introduced. From those, cause-related marketing, employee volunteering, and corporate philanthropy are detailed with real company examples and respective advantages and disadvantages because those are the activities used in the study. A review of appropriate literature is given and for customer-related outcomes, social identity theory, attribution theory, and behavioral decisi...

Mubashir Aziz Experimental Study on Effects of Deterioration of Grains on Deformation and Strength Characteristics of Soils

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2010 in the subject Engineering - Geotechnology, , course: Civil Engineering, language: English, abstract: With growing infrastructure developments in hilly areas and due toeconomical constraints of using locally available rockfill materials for construction of embankments, practicing engineers must be acquainted with geotechnical response of non-conventional granular soils. These materials are most likely to disintegrate with time due to physical and chemical weathering. In general, the laboratory investigations on durability characteristics of such materials are only made through simple slaking tests. However, studies examining the effects of slaking-induced disintegration of soil grains on thegeotechnical engineering analysis and design parameters are rather limited. This is essentially due to the reason that the grains of standard laboratory sands are mostly durable and hence, the stress-strain response is considered to be unaffected by the presence of water.In order to explore the possible effects of deterioration of soil grains on static and dynamic properties of granular soils, a series of consolidated drained torsional shear tests on various crushed soft rocks were performed under saturated and dry conditions and compared with a well reported Toyoura silica sand consisting of durable grains. Due to the sensitivity of crushed rockfill todeteriorate upon water-submergence, test under dry conditions represented the response of...
