 Actuarial Outpost - Geometric Brownian motion
In general, exponentiating a general Ito process results in something that looks like a generalized GBM with an upward drift adjustment, while taking the log of a general Ito process results in another general Ito process (which looks nothing like a GBM) with a downward drift adjustment.
For the processes that incorporate time dependency into the a and b functions, does it follow that the logarithm of the underlying variable follows a generalized Wiener process (as for the strict definition of GBM)?
If y = e^x and x follows the Ito process:

 Community Conferencing As Transformative Problem-Solving
To assist the diagnosis, it helps to: distinguish disputes from conflicts, and distinguish the general category of mediation from a particular mediation process.
ABSTRACT: In cases where the primary problem is general conflict rather than a specific dispute, the appropriate processes are perhaps best categorized as 'conflict transformation'.
'Mediation' refers to the general category of non-adversarial processes, but also to one specific non-adversarial process within that category.

 Nonlinear System Identification
The identification problem is examined in a stochastic setup where the input is a white Gaussian stochastic process with known intensities.
Current research is focused on the problem of deriving sufficient conditions for persistence of excitation of the input signal and on the extension of the results to more general quadratic ARMA models.
Extension of these results to the case of more general qudratic models and more general stochastic input signals is the subject of ongoing research.

 #367: 06-25-02 GENERAL AMERICAN LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY, INC. PAYS UNITED STATES $76 MILLION TO SETTLE ALLEGATIONS IN MEDICARE FRAUD CASE
As a Medicare Part B carrier, General American acted under contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to process claims submitted by Medicare beneficiaries and their doctors or other health care providers in accordance with Medicare coverage and payment rules.
This settlement resolves the whistleblowers' allegations that General American failed to process claims properly and then submitted false information to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regarding both the accuracy and the timeliness with which it handled those claims.
The lawsuit and the government alleged that General American breached its contractual obligations by failing to report errors which they had identified in the quality assurance process and further concealed its true error rate by deleting claims selected for review by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service's Kansas City Regional Office.

 LD IDENTIFICATION
Some LD instructors were comfortable in the role of general educational support, but others indicated that the uniqueness of LD as a construct, especially as one considers significant underlying information processing deficits, was not being addressed under current instructional configurations.
The LD instructors indicated that they were often asked to support students in the general education curriculum—largely through tutorial support to ensure that students completed assignments from the general education classroom—which might have been at the expense of using alternative curricula or providing specially designed instruction.
In four of six groups, at least 50% of the participants indicated that (a) an efficient process, (b) a valid, research-based process, and (c) an age or developmentally appropriate process were important attributes for a model.

 Computer - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch
Computers with general-purpose capabilities are called Turing-complete and this status is often used as the capability that defines modern computers, however, this definition is.
By definition a general-purpose computer can solve any problem that can be expressed as a program and executed within the practical limits set by: the storage capacity of the computer, the size of program, the speed of program execution, and the reliability of the machine.
General-purpose computers must be programmed with a set of instructions specific to the task they are required to perform and these instructions are collectively know as computer software.

The cogeneration facility also produces 40 MW of electricity for Pacific Gas and Electric in an efficient process that utilizes clean natural gas and keeps tight controls on airborne emissions.
In this process, a GE LM6000 aeroderivative gas turbine engine, powered by clean-burning natural gas, turns a generator to produce electricity, enough to power 51,300 homes.
The first process, using water, is conventional: the waste heat transferred to the HRSG heats up water to produce steam, which is piped to the refinery.

 Process Philosophy
Under the influence of Darwinian evolutionism, most process philosophers have envisioned a course of temporal development within which value is somehow survival-facilitative so that the arrangements which do succeed in establishing and perpetuating themselves will as a general tendency manage to have done so because they represent actual improvements in one way of another.
Like American philosophy in general, process philosophy is too complex and diversified an enterprise to be captured or even dominated by any one school of thought; it is a highly diversified manifold that encompasses tendencies of thought representing a wide variety of sources.
Process theology accordingly contemplates a wider realm of processes that embrace both the natural and the spiritual realms and interconnect God with the vast community of worshippers in one communal state of macroprocess that encompasses and gives embodiment to such a comprehensive whole.

The largest studied to date are general equilibrium systems with the major characteristics of international trade, meaning multiple countries, multiple production functions, multiple inputs, etc. The general competitive equilibrium works well to predict the asymptote of prices and allocations.
We have hints that in the stable equilibrium cases, the adjustment process might incorporate aspects of the inverse of the Jacobian (a type of Newton adjustment process).
The process at work in all cases appears to be the classical adjustment model in which the rates of changes of prices (scaled by price) is proportional to excess demand.

 Fardon v Attorney-General for Queensland [2004] HCATrans 39 (2 March 2004)
The question is not about preventive detention in general terms but the preventive detention of one person and the intrusion of the legislature into the judicial process.
General deterrence, although it is not taken into account, is arguably an effect of the legislation.
So it appeared that he had actually been charged and that rather than wait for the outcome of the process that had been thus commenced, the Act was passed and judicial process sought to be put in train.

 Figueroa v. Canada (Attorney General), 2003 SCC 37 (CanLII)
More specifically, the Attorney General submits that the 50-candidate threshold advances three separate goals: (i) to improve the effectiveness of the electoral process; (ii) to protect the integrity of the electoral financing regime; and (iii) to ensure that the process is able to deliver a viable outcome for our form of responsible government.
Accordingly, even if the election of a strong national government is not the only viable outcome of the electoral process, it at least is possible that there are certain benefits associated with the formation of a majority government that has aggregated preferences on a national basis.
Elections are fair and equitable only if all citizens are reasonably informed of all the possible choices and if parties and candidates are given a reasonable opportunity to present their positions.

 Photography - The Introduction Of Collodion
Collodion gradually pushed its way, and by 1854 its use had superseded almost all other methods with the general photographer; for by this time photography had become a profession.
To say nothing of its dangers, it was a tedious process, and caused the early photographers an amount of toil and trouble of which the men of today have but little conception.
It almost immediately came into very general use, and many adepts in chemical manipulation gave much time and attention to improve the methods of making the compound, and to discovering the best ways of using it.

The United States Supreme Court in Escobedo fixed the point at which a suspect is entitled to counsel is that at which “the process shifts from investigatory to accusatory—when its focus is on the accused and its purpose is to elicit a confession.

 House of Lords - European Union - Ninth Report
One area in which the CMS differs from the Barcelona process is in the former's explicit inclusion of the Middle East Peace Process (MEPP), although it is only in the context of a comprehensive settlement that the strategy envisages any participation by Member States in the implementation of security arrangements on the ground.
The answer, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, is that "It adds to the Barcelona process by putting the EU's input into relations with the Mediterranean into a coherent framework, thus speeding up internal EU decision-making on Mediterranean Issues." (p12) But other witnesses have found it hard to define what this means.
While the Italian Embassy attributed this to "the political climate prevailing in the area at the moment of the Conference" assuring us that "the failure to adopt the Charter in Marseilles does not preclude efforts to start defining a more active role for the EU in the Peace Process" (p82), others are more wary.
