I stood there and I hollered!
I stood there and I cried!
If it hadn't a-been so high
I might've jumped and died.

An' I ist looked ever'where,
An' they was nobody there.

Free to roam the rollin' pastures o' the open tide.

Espeshally the childern, and watch theyr high delight
As one by one the rines with theyr pink notches falls,
And they holler fer some more, with unquenched
appetite.

But the little Town o' Tailholt's good enough fer me!

A spectral synthesis method to suppress aliasing and calibrate for delay errors in Fourier transform correlators
This ensures that the sub-bands span the desired frequency range and is discussed further in Holler et al. (2007).
A spectral synthesis method to suppress aliasing and calibrate for delay errors in Fourier transform correlators
The influence of players is gauged from the viewpoint of basic player types, desirability relations and classical power indices such as Shapley-Shubik index, Banzhaf index, Holler index, Deegan-Packel index and Chow parameters.
Complexity of comparison of influence of players in simple games
Both the Deegan-Packel index and the Holler index are based on the notion of minimal winning coalitions.
Complexity of comparison of influence of players in simple games
The Holler index, Hi of a player i in a simple game corresponds to the Banzhaf index with one difference: only swings in minimal winning coalitions contribute towards the Holler index.
Complexity of comparison of influence of players in simple games
We define the Holler value Mi as {S ∈ W m : i ∈ S }.
Complexity of comparison of influence of players in simple games
We show that local monotonicity holds for the Holler-Packel index and the Deegan-Packel index in the two dimensional CWMMG (Theorem 2), but not in the three or higher dimensional cases (Example 4).
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
We agree with Holler and Naple that the violation of local monotonicity is not a fatal drawback in power measuring at all, as taken for granted by many researchers.
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
To be specific, Appendix A is for computing the MWCs, Appendix B for the Holler-Packel index and the Deegan-Packel index, Appendix C for the structure of winning coalitions, and Appendix D for the Penrose-Banzhaf index and the Shapley-Shubik index.
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
It is still not hard to prove that computing the Holler-Packel index in WMG, even in the special case of simple WMG, is NP-hard, and the algorithm of Matsui and Matsui for computing the DeeganPackel index can trivially be modified to compute the Holler- Packel index, with an even lower time complexity .
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
To verify that it also holds for the Holler-Packel index and the Deegan-Packel index, we need two lemmas.
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
The following example shows that a player who is busy in the grand coalition N , that is a player in B(N ), may have smaller power than that of a player who is not, if powers are measured by Holler-Packel index or Deegan-Packel index.
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
This is not true, however, for the Holler-Packel index and the Deegan-Packel index, because giant players who can win by themselves may have smaller Holler-Packel and Deegan-Packel indices than the versatile ones that have a great number of potential partners.
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
For regular TC-CWMMG where each MWC consists of exactly d0 players, we are happy to observe that local monotonicity always holds for the Holler-Packel index and the DeeganPackel index.
Complementary cooperation, minimal winning coalitions, and power indices
Based on the upper-bound of MWC, efficient algorithms for computing all the Holler-Packel and Deegan-Packel indices exist trivially.
