Japan University of Economics , abbreviated as Nikkeidai , is a private university in Dazaifu, Fukuoka, Japan. The school was established in 1968 and adopted the present name in 2007, to reflect its nationwide character following the successful establishment of campuses in both Kobe and Tokyo . It is officially the Fukuoka campus of the Japan University of Economics which is run by the Tsuzuki Integrated Educational Corporation, a major supplier of higher education in Japan. Students live in one of two dormitories, called Oxford House and Cambridge House, to in honor of the famous Oxford and Cambridge universities. The current chancellor of the university is the daughter of Yasuhisa Tsuzuki, who had resigned to pursue private interests following allegations of molesting staff that were ultimately unproven in court but damaging nonetheless to the image of the institution.The university under the leadership of the new Chancellor, has gone on to become one of the three largest providers in Japan of education to overseas students.

This paper measures the technical efficiency of joint public-private venture railways and private railways in Japan using the Stochastic Frontier Analysis. We compare the following four groups using student’s t-tests : Group 1 is composed of rural railways operated by joint public-private ventures, Group 2 is composed of rural railways operated by the private sector, Group 3 is composed of urban rapid transit railways operated by joint publicprivate ventures, and Group 4 is composed of urban rapid transit railways operated by the private sector. The null hypothesis that there is no difference between Group 3 and Group 4 on mean efficiency is not rejected. © 2015, Japan Section of the Regional Science Association International.

With the popularization of high-speed and high-capacity communication networks, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication has received significant attention. However, although the related technologies have been actively investigated, creating new businesses based on M2M communication is difficult. The information and communication technology community should take not only system modeling but also business modeling into account for monetization. This study proposes a service design and modeling method of M2M businesses based on the SCAI (Share-Connect-Analyze-Identify) model, which was proposed in PICMET 2014 [10]. The proposed method is explained using a trial application to smart home M2M services. © 2014 Portland International Conference on Management of Engineering and Technology. Source

Clark and Konrad (2007) introduce the weakest link against the best shot property to the Colonel Blotto game where the defendant has to win all the battle fields while the attacker only needs to win at least one battlefield. They characterize the Nash equilibrium assuming that the attacker attacks all the battlefields simultaneously. We construct a two stage model and endogenize the attacker's attack pattern. We show that the attacker chooses a sequential attack pattern in the subgame perfect Nash equilibrium. Therefore, the game analyzed by Clark and Konrad (2007) is never realized. We also conducted experiments and found that the subjects' behavior was inconsistent to theoretical predictions. Both players overinvested and the variances were large. In the simultaneous game, the attackers took a guerrira strategy at 30% of the time in which they invested only in one battlefield and the defenders took a surrender strategy at 11% of the time in which they invested nothing in the simultaneous game. Both players invested more in period 1 than in period 2 in the sequential game. Although all of these are inconsistent to the theoretical predictions, the winning probability of a game was consistent to the theoretical prediction in the simultaneous games, but it was lower than the theoretical prediction in the sequential games. We conclude that the subjects' irrational behavior is mainly a rational response to his/her opponent's irrational behavior. Our model can explain terrorism, cyber terrorism, lobbying, and patent trolls and the huge gap between the theory and the experiments are important considering the significance of the problems.

Recent empirics report that transport cost reductions significantly contribute to rapidly growing world trade. This article develops a reciprocal market model of intra-industry trade with transboundary pollution from consumption to consider how market integration in the form of transport cost reductions affects the noncooperative choice of an environmental policy and the equilibrium welfare. I show that market integration can improve welfare locally, but that welfare under any non-prohibitive trade cost can not be higher than welfare under autarky. This possibility of trade losses exhibits a sharp contrast to the case of production-generated pollution. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC. Source

The main objective of HEE is to examine the direction in which electrical engineering should move in the years ahead by studying the past. Electrical engineering history constitutes the basis of technologies that we should develop. It is the starting point from which we should approach the future. This paper introduces recent activities of the committee. Source
