A Model for Personnel Recruiting and Selection

Richard C. Kao; Thomas C. Rowan (1959)
This paper presents a mathematical model for determining a minimum cost strategy for the following personnel recruiting and selection situation. A quota is set for the minimum number of good employees to be added each period, and selection is done on the basis of a test having a known correlation with the given criterion of job success. There is a total cost for all individuals recruited and a loss attached to each person hired who turns out to be unsatisfactory. The problem is to determine a...

Zum gegenwärtigen Stand der Imageforschung

Kleining, Gerhard (1959)
Eine der wesentlichen neueren Konzeptionen der modernen, psychologisch, soziologisch und anthropologisch orientierten Absatzforschung wird besprochen, die des "Images". Man versteht darunter das "Bild" einer Ware, eines Produktes, einer Person, einer Firma, einer Idee oder sonst einer Gegebenheit, wie es bei Einzelpersonen oder Personengruppen vorzufinden ist. Das Image wird als dynamischer und ganzheitlicher Komplex verstanden, in dem Persönlichkeitsfaktoren und Wirkungen der Umwelt zu eine...

Aspects of the growth and practice of the English short story

Stephens, D.G. (1959)
This thesis is based on the belief that the English short story deserves a more prominent position in the field of literary criticism, and on the aim to understand it as a distinct literary form. Though this study does not, in any way, pretend to fill that place, it is an attempt to understand the basic intentions of certain authors by an examination of the functions of the various elements which shape a short story. Such an end may best be achieved by the inductive metho...

Optimum Noise Performance of Transistor Input Circuits / Transistor AC and DC Amplifiers with High Input Impedance

Middlebrook, R. D.; Mead, C. A. (1959)
Some results are presented for optimum noise performance of transistor input stages when fed from resistive or reactive sources. Standard theory has shown that a common-emitter transistor fed from a resistive source presents a minimum noise figure F_m when the source resistance has a certain value R_gm in the order of lkΩ. In this paper, expressions are developed for minimum noise figure and optimum source resistance in the presence of base bias resistors, emitter degeneration resist...

Elasto-plastic stress analysis of curved structures with rectangular section

Hsu, Robert Y. (1959)
Since the Eighteenth century, a great amount of research has been done using the elastic analysis technique in the field of curved structures. Recently the question of behavior beyond the yielding range has become increasingly important. By applying the methods of plastic analysis, the collapse load of a structure can be determined, and also the stress distribution and the deflection, just before collapse, can be calculated. However the evolution of the stress distribution and ...
