    Applications of higher-order optimal Newton secant iterative methods in ocean acidification and investigation of long-run implications of emissions on alkalinity of seawater2013Ingår i: ISRN Applied Mathematics, ISSN 2090-5564, E-ISSN 2090-5572, Vol. 2013, artikel-id 785287Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Newton secant method is a third-order iterative nonlinear solver. It requires two function and one first derivative evaluations. However, it is not optimal as it does not satisfy the Kung-Traub conjecture. In this work, we derive an optimal fourth-order Newton secant method with the same number of function evaluations using weight functions and we show that it is a member of the King family of fourth-order methods. We also obtain an eighth-order optimal Newton-secant method. We prove the local convergence of the methods. We apply the methods to solve a fourth-order polynomial arising in ocean acidifications and study their dynamics. We use the data of CO2 available from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration from 1959 to 2012 and calculate the pH of the oceans for these years. Finally we further investigate the long-run implications of CO2 emissions on alkalinity of seawater using fully modified ordinary least squares (FMOLS) and dynamic OLS (DOLS). Our findings reveal that a one-percent increase in CO2 emissions will lead to a reduction in seawater alkalinity of 0.85 percent in the long run.

    Towards Smart Tourism: An individual appreciation of Porlwi-By-Light festival: An Ordered Probit Approach2016Ingår i: 2016 IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Innovative Business Practices for the Transformation of Societies, EmergiTech 2016, Piscataway, NJ: Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016, s. 323-328, artikel-id 7737360Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The festival of light is considered as one application of Smart Tourism to intelligently promote this sector. This paper examines how different socio-demographic and psychological aspects are complementary to attitude towards individual appreciation of the recent festival of light (Porlwi-By-Light). In order to obtain a precise description and understanding of individual perception, specific attempts have been carried out to control for personality traits and the anger scale of individual. The big five factor model of personality traits and individual anger scale are thereby considered. We apply a cross sectional data, captured from a drop-off survey with a sample size of 725 observations. Within an ordered probit and negative binomial framework, gender, age, residential location, educational level, family size, income, marital status, numbers of attendees at the festival, the extent to which they wish to go again to Porlwi-By-Light festival, whether it was a good season to organize the festival, the festival was appreciative, to extent to which the traffic jam affected the visitors, how the 5Es (education, entertainment, escapism, esthetics and economic value) contributed in the festival as well as personality traits and motivational factors, are found to be the conclusive factors affecting an individual appreciation at the festival. Our findings help us to draw consideration to the consequences of festival's experience and how personality-specific policies can be designed to influence public's perceptions

    Are shocks to copper consumption persistent?2013Ingår i: Mineral Economics, ISSN 2191-2203, E-ISSN 2191-2211, Vol. 26, nr 1-2, s. 29-38Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates whether shocks to copper consumption for 37 countries over the period 1967-2010 are transitory or persistent. A variety of time-series unit root tests is first employed. This is followed by several generations of panel data unit root tests. The presence of structural breaks is taken into account while performing those tests. In addition, cross-sectional dependence is detected and effectively controlled when applying some new generations of panel unit root tests. Copper consumption is found to follow a non-stationary process for about 86% of the countries. There is also overwhelming evidence of similar process when panel unit root tests are applied. Generally, shocks to copper consumption are found to be persistent.

    Divergence in technical efficiency of electric utilities: evidence from the SAPP2013Ingår i: Energy Policy, ISSN 0301-4215, E-ISSN 1873-6777, Vol. 62, s. 419-430Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the convergence pattern of technical efficiency of the South Africa Power Pool (SAPP) utilities over the period April 2003–March 2010 by means of parametric and non-parametric techniques. Technical efficiency scores are computed via both stochastic frontier analysis and data envelopment analysis. Mixed results are obtained from the neoclassical convergence approaches. In addition, distribution dynamics methods reveal some evidence of club-formation and this result is supported with the occurrence of γ-divergence. Taken as a whole, technical efficiency is found to diverge among the utilities operating in the power pool.

    A cointegration and causality analysis of copper consumption and economic growth in rich countries2013Ingår i: Resources policy, ISSN 0301-4207, E-ISSN 1873-7641, Vol. 38, nr 4, s. 628-639Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper examines the copper consumption-economic growth nexus for 16 rich economies from the period 1966 to 2010. Various generations of panel unit root and cointegration tests are applied. Both series are found to be integrated of order one. Evidence of cointegration is found especially when controlling for breaks and long-run cross-sectional dependence. Causality is investigated using a vector error-correction mechanism (VECM) framework. At individual level, unidirectional causality running from economic growth to copper consumption is unraveled for Finland, France and UK in the long-run. Unidirectional causality is also found running from copper consumption to economic growth for Spain. Long-run bi-directionality between economic growth and copper consumption is found for Belgium, Greece, Italy, Japan and South Korea. The neutrality hypothesis holds for Australia, Austria, Canada, Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and USA in the long-run. Taken as a whole, panel causality test reveals a long-run unidirectional causality running from economic growth to copper consumption.

    Are Shocks to Aluminium Consumption Transitory or Permanent?2013Ingår i: Review of Applied Economics, ISSN 0973-1687, Vol. 9, nr 1-2, s. 21-37Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates whether shocks to aluminium consumption for 36 countries over the period 1967-2010 are transitory or permanent. A variety of time-series and panel data unit root tests are employed. The presence of structural breaks is taken into account when performing those tests. Following the Narayan-Popp univariate unit root test, aluminium consumption series for approximately 77.8% of countries is found to follow a non-stationary process. However unit root tests tend to have low power when the time span is relatively short and the results should be treated with some caution. Most of the panel unit root tests also point towards similar process. While these shocks can be transmitted to other economic sectors, past behaviours of aluminium consumption cannot be used for forecasting purposes. Mineral policies will have a permanent impact on the long-run trend of aluminium consumption

    Does a Material Kuznets Curve Exist for Copper?2014Ingår i: Economic Papers - Economic Society of Australia, ISSN 0812-0439, E-ISSN 1759-3441, Vol. 33, nr 4, s. 374-390Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The material Kuznets curve (MKC) hypothesis with reference to copper for 16 high-income countries over the period 1966 to 2010 is investigated. The Narayan and Narayan (2010) testing framework is applied. Recent generations of panel unit root and cointegration tests are performed. The variables are found to be I(1) and cointegrated. Unidirectional causality running from real gross domestic product per capita to copper intensity is uncovered in the long-run. While controlling for technological development, the MKC hypothesis is found to hold at individual levels for Austria, Italy and Portugal as well as for the whole panel.

    The Importance of Understanding the Anti-Corruption Legislation to Promote Corruption Reporting: Lessons from Mauritius2019Ingår i: International Journal of Public Administration, ISSN 0190-0692, E-ISSN 1532-4265Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Anti-corruption campaigns usually focus on educating the population. However, little is known about the impact of knowledge, especially understanding of the anti-corruption legislation and the function of Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) body in practice. This study sheds light on the factors influencing the likelihood of reporting a case of corruption in Mauritius. Cross-sectional data are compiled from a household survey with a sample size of 380 observations. To perform the investigation, an ordered probit model is employed. Knowledge about the Prevention of Corruption Act (PoCA) is found to be a crucial variable in determining the functional form of the empirical model. In general, media consumption and knowledge about the PoCA increases the probability of reporting an act of corruption, while Interest in politics decreases the likelihood of reporting  a case of corruption to the ICAC. In addition, age, educational attainment, income level, family size and civil status are found to be important predictors of corruption reporting.

    Are Shocks to Wood Fuel Production Permanent? Evidence from the EU2015Ingår i: Energies, ISSN 1996-1073, E-ISSN 1996-1073, Vol. 8, nr 11, s. 12718-12728Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates whether shocks (economic effects) to wood fuel production for 18 countries of the European Union (EU) over the period 1961–2012 are temporary or persistent. A variety of time-series and panel data unit root tests are employed. The presence of structural breaks is taken into account when performing those tests. Wood production in approximately 78% of the countries is found to follow a non-stationary process supported by the result that most of the panel unit root tests also point towards a non-stationary process. This indicates that the economic effect will tend to be persistent and suggests that policies affecting wood fuel production, implicitly or explicitly, will have enduring effects. For instance, forest conservation policies will persistently reduce the wood fuel production level.

    Dynamics of Timber Market Integration in Sweden2015Ingår i: Forests, ISSN 1999-4907, E-ISSN 1999-4907, Vol. 6, nr 12, s. 4617-4633, artikel-id 17Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the performance of the timber markets (Scots pine, Pinus silvestris L. and Norway spruce, Picea abies (L.) Karst.) by evaluating the order of market integration in three Swedish regions (Central, Northern, and Southern). Quarterly data of delivery prices are employed over the period 1999Q1–2012Q4. Various unit root and cointegration tests have been computed. The results indicate that the variables are integrated of first order and co-integrated, especially after controlling for structural breaks. This supports the law-of-one-price hypothesis (LOP). However, the effects of structural shocks on forestry are arguably significant and these are controlled for while performing a vector error-correction mechanism (VECM)-based Granger-causality test. Bi-directional causality between the Northern and central markets is uncovered in the short-run. In the long-run, a similar causal effect is detected between Northern and Southern markets while the central market emerges as the price leader. Further investigation is carried out using variance decompositions and impulse response functions and these approaches also tend to confirm the existence of a single market well, as price interdependence between markets.

    Dynamics of Wood Pulp Production: Evidence from OECD Countries2017Ingår i: Forests, ISSN 1999-4907, E-ISSN 1999-4907, Vol. 8, nr 4, s. 170-180, artikel-id 107Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates whether shocks to pulp for paper production for 17 Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) members over the period 1980–2012 are transitory or permanent. A variety of univariate and panel data unit root tests are employed. The presence of structural breaks is taken into account when performing those tests. Based on the Narayan-Popp univariate unit root test, wood production series for approximately 64.71% of countries is found to follow a non-stationary process. However, univariate unit root tests tend to have low power when the time span is relatively short. Consequently, three generations of panel unit root tests are considered. Cross-sectional dependence is detected. The first generation of unit roots do not effectively control for cross-sectional dependence, while the second and third generations do. The third generation accounts mainly for cross-sectional co-integration. As a confirmatory analysis, both unit root tests that tests for the null of non-stationarity and stationarity are considered. Most of the panel unit root tests point towards a non-stationary process. Hence, while these shocks can be transmitted to other economic sectors, past behaviours of wood production cannot be used for forecasting purposes. Forest conservation policies can have a permanent impact on pulp for paper production.

    Consumer behaviour in the scratch card market: a double-hurdle approach2014Ingår i: International Gambling Studies, ISSN 1445-9795, E-ISSN 1479-4276, Vol. 14, nr 1, s. 96-114Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates how various socio-demographic as well as psychological factors are related to the purchasing frequency of Le Millionaire scratch card in Mauritius. In order to obtain a refined description and understanding of consumer behaviour, special attempts have been made to control for the personality traits of an individual. The OCEAN model of personality is thereby considered. We employ cross-sectional micro-data acquired from a household drop-off survey with a sample size of 1135 observations. Within a double-hurdle framework, gender, residential location, educational level, household income, alcohol consumption, other forms of gambling activities, and personality traits are found to be determining factors affecting an individual's decision to gamble in the scratch card market. Our findings help us to draw attention to the consequences of risk-taking behaviours and how personality-specific policies can be designed to influence gambling behaviour.

    Convergence of Operational Efficiency in China’s Provincial Power Sectors2016Ingår i: Energy Journal, ISSN 0195-6574, E-ISSN 1944-9089, Vol. 37, nr China special issue, s. 3-27Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To analyze the operational efficiency of Chinese power sector at the provincial level, this paper studies the convergence of technical efficiency and productivity growth of electricity across 29 Chinese provinces during the period 1996-2008 using several convergence models. Depending on the model being employed, we find evidence of convergence of operational efficiency towards either a national steady state or towards their own steady states, with the latter process occurring more rapidly. In essence, our study provides evidence of negative effects of government intervention. Additionally, we use the nonparametric distribution dynamics approach to analyze intra-distributional dynamics of technical efficiency and productivity. We find some support for productivity convergence while technical efficiency does not converge for provinces with relatively low levels. We discuss policy implementations based on our model results and highlight several aspects for policy making in the power sector reforms currently being undertaken

    Forest products exports and economic growth: Evidence from rich countries2016Ingår i: The Journal of developing areas, ISSN 0022-037X, E-ISSN 1548-2278, Vol. 50, nr 4, s. 443-458Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The forest sector contributes a significant share to national income. The existence and magnitude of causal relationships between forest product exports and economic growth is thus important to understand not least for policy issues. It has vital implications for policy-makers enacting proper development strategies. This causality is usually analyzed using the export-led economic growth hypothesis. International trade is affecting economic growth through enhanced competition and specialization. Export, more specifically, foster economic growth via the accumulation of foreign exchange, by stimulating efficient investments in the right sectors and by allowing for improved economies of scale. Surprisingly, practically no studies have been done analyzing the forest products export-led economic growth hypothesis. Thus, the current study fills an important gap in the literature. The study attempts to test the forest product export-led growth hypothesis for 22 economies over the period 1970 to 2011. Various generations of panel unit root and cointegration tests are applied. The time frame and the selection of countries are purely dictated by the availability of data and the amount of existing productive forest area. The econometric tests are based on augmented Dickey-Fuller unit root and cointegration tests. These tests are necessary before assessing the impact of forest product exports on GDP. The connection between economic growth and forest products exportation is analyzed using an error correction model (ECM) based panel causality test structure. The ECM is subsequently used to estimate short- and long-run elasticities. The series are found to be integrated of order one and cointegrated, especially when applying the third-generation tests. Uni-directional causality running from forest product exports to economic growth is uncovered in the both the short-run and the long-run. Moreover, forest products exportation is found to positively affect economic growth. The short-run elasticity reveals positive and significant income elasticity. A 1% increase in forest product exports will lead to a 0.022% increase in economic growth in the short-run and 0.002% in the long-run. The regional dummy is also significant and positive, implying that countries with significant forest land coverage are bound to experience higher economic growth. The findings will help policymakers in their projections and implementing natural resource and forest policies. Unidirectional causality implies forest product exports can be used to predict economic growth in both short-run and long-run but not vice versa. In general, the results support the ELG hypothesis. Promotion of forest product exportations can lead to a multiplier effect.

    Participation and Spending Attitudes in the Mauritian Lotto Market2017Ingår i: The Journal of developing areas, ISSN 0022-037X, E-ISSN 1548-2278, Vol. 51, nr 1, s. 1-17Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Mauritian Lotto was first introduced on the 7th of November 2009 by lotto tech. The first jackpot was Rs 12 million. To play the game, choose 6 numbers from 1-40. Drawings are held once a week on Saturdays. The odds of winning Mauritius Lotto are one in 3,838,380. For a pick-6 lotto game, the Mauritius Lotto 6/40 lottery game has relatively excellent odds when compared to other pick-6 lotto games around the world. The present study tries to attempt to understand the attitude of Mauritians' towards the lotto game and the impact of socio-economic, psychological and demographic variables on addiction towards these game. For this purpose, a double–hurdle frame work was used, having conducted a drop-off survey of households with a paper and pencil, comprising of 3 distinct sections, namely, personal profile of the respondents, demographic characteristics and personality traits comprising 30 questions of open-ended, close-ended, partial open-ended and psychometric scales questions. 1027 respondents' involvement and the spendthrift nature are analysed. This study brings in the light to the influence of personality trait heterogeneities, coupled with socio-economic and risk-taking behaviours are controlled in the model. Recommendations on future areas of innovation in personality research and policy implications on social perspective ladder, such as alcohol beverages and cigarettes and indulgence in other forms of gambling have serious consequences on both the lotto participation and expenditure decisions. Retailers and corner shops can come up with marketing strategies which will help them to capitalize on cross-buying behaviours. Suppliers' coffers will see new height in terms of revenue at the detriment of public health in terms of cross-addictions. State intervention via consumer laws will have to be made more stringent while sufficient rules and regulations need to be implemented to protect the growing generation from such potential health risks associated with gambling.

    Motivation and Academic Performance: A SEM Approach2019Ingår i: International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, ISSN 1306-3065, Vol. 14, nr 1, s. 41-60Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Many models in educational have tried to clarify the causal relationships of motivation variables on student performance, by presenting hypothesized models, exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) under structural equation modeling (SEM). Based on the literature, this model inspected the most robust stimuli of motivation: intrinsic, extrinsic, amotivation, self-efficacy and achievement motivation alongside with other variables like parental education, location, musculoskeletal pain (MSP), student body mass index (BMI), bag weights and tuition. SEM (unmodified and modified) is used to clarify the interrelationships of these variables and their relative contributions to academic performance. The sample consists of 324 students from Forest-Side State Secondary School (Boys). The results show that as predicted the latent variable motivation, mother education, private tuition and weights of bags have direct effects on students‘ performance using the modified standardized coefficients.

    Efficiency Assessment of Secondary Schools in Mauritius: A DEA Approach2018Ingår i: International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, ISSN 1306-3065, Vol. 13, nr 10, s. 865-880Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the context of the quantitative approach to the evaluation of educational units there is an emerging interest in discerning the factors that affect the performance of a school. The data envelopment analysis (DEA) methodology provides an effective agenda for evaluating the efficiency of educational units, such as the secondary schools, in the presence of multiple inputs and outputs. In this paper we evaluate the performance of Mauritian colleges through DEA. The data deal with overall % passes at school certificate and higher school certificate in all secondary colleges for the year 2016. The 141 colleges are bunched on the foundation of factors such as school facilities and school population. The analysis results indicate that efficiency of colleges ranged between 0 and 1 with an average of 0.872(CRS) and 0.909(VRS) using Tobit model. The second stage analysis found that the location, zone, types of colleges, teacher-student ratio, student-class ratio, college status and canteen have significant effect on school’s performance.
