Abstract:
**In this
paper, we construct a three-country model with two governments and two
firms and consider dynamic behavior of the sequential subsidy game in
which the governments determine their optimal trade policies and then
the firms determine their optimal outputs. We first show the existence
of an optimal trade policy under realistic conditions. In the case of
symmetric firms, the governments adopt periodic mixed trade policy
(i.e., one government gives subsidy and the other levies tax in one
period and then the governments interchange their policies in the next
period)
if the adjustment is
naive, and the governments adopt a stable mixed policy if adaptive. In
the case of asymmetric firms, a firm receives subsidy if its cost is
lower and pays tax if higher. If the Cournot output point under the
optimal subsidy is locally stable, then its dynamics can be periodic
which is synchronized with the periodic trade policy. If it is locally
unstable, then complex dynamics involving chaos emerges regardless of
the cost difference.

Abstract:
**In this short note, we find
that a continuous piecewise monotone interval map f
is chaotic in
the sense of Li and Yorke if and only if
f
restricted to
the set of its periodic points is Lyapunov stable.

Abstract:
**A new approach to tracking
blood pressure, and pulse pressure specifically is presented that is
based on a new form of pulse pressure wave analysis called Pulse
Decomposition Analysis (PDA). The premise of the PDA model is that the
peripheral arterial pressure pulse is a superposition of five individual
component pressure pulses, the first of which is due to the left
ventricular ejection from the heart while the remaining component
pressure pulses are reflections and re-reflections that originate from
only two reflection sites within the central arteries. The hypothesis
examined here is that the PDA parameter T13, the timing delay between
the first and third component pulses, correlates with pulse pressure.
Furthermore the comparison of experimental and model predictions
provides insight into the pressure/velocity responses of the different
arterial segments that
the iliac
reflection pulse (P3) traverses.

**
Abstract:
**In this paper we introduce a
new piecewise smooth mapping of the plane as a unified discrete-time
chaotic system that contains the original Hénon and Lozi systems as two
extremes and other systems as a transition in between and that has
robust homoclinic chaos over a portion of its key system parameters.
Dynamical behaviors of the unified system are investigated in some
detail.
