Kookmin University is the first national private university located in Seongbuk-gu, Seoul, South Korea after the liberation of the Republic of Korea from Japan. Kookmin University was established in 1946. After South Korea was liberated from Japan, Gu kim, Soang Jo and Ikhee Shin who are the members of the cabinet in a provisional government had agreed to cultivate a great leader among the Republic of Korea in perspective, which soon became the banner of the Kookmin University. Ikhee Shin who is one of the key figures of establishment for the Kookmin University was inaugurated as the first president of the University. Kookmin University is owned by the SsangYong Group, which bought the university in 1959.Kookmin University has an academic family of 22,000 students, about 800 faculty members and 350 administrative staff. Since its establishment in 1946, approximately 60,000 students have graduated.Kookmin University includes the College of Humanities, the College of Engineering and 12 other colleges. The university includes a Graduate school which consists of three Professional Graduate Schools and ten Special Graduate Schools. Kookmin teaches in the fields of Design, Architecture, Automotive Engineering, Techno-Design, Social Science and other academic disciplines.The College of Design held the first rank in three fields and the second rank in two fields among a total of five fields as a result of a nationwide assessment in 2007 in South Korea. The college has been ranked among the top three departments in Korea with Seoul National University and Hongik University.Kookmin University's Graduate School of Techno Design, which was established with the view of nurturing "design human capability of world level", has been selected for the BK 21 project. The Techno Design School's interdisciplinary connection and expertise in educational-industrial cooperation is expected to create synergy with the "UIT design".In the Joongangilbo University Ranking 2011, the School of Economics achieved third in Korea.

An approach is provided for configuring multiple interferers. An interference effect minimum protective distance is calculated in response to detection of an input of an interferer parameter. Physical (PHY) layer modeling is performed to individually apply a pathloss caused by a separation distance between an interferer node and a victim and apply a pathloss of each node to an attenuator and a transmitter amplifier in an HW manner. MAC layer modeling is performed to determine a transmission node and a transmission time using Markov chain or determine a transmission node and a transmission time using a result log file of an external MAC simulator and a transmission/reception time is reflected in an HW manner by turning ON/OFF a switch. Multiple correlated interferer signals are generated for analyzing an effect of frequency interference in view of both of PHY and MAC layers.

Semiconductor device technology has continuously advanced through active research and the development of innovative technologies during the past decades. Semiconductor devices are expected to descend below the 10 nm scale within the next 10 years. Meanwhile, nanofabrication technology and the synthesis of nanostructured materials for novel device applications have made considerable progress too. This review will discuss new technologies that make this continuous device scaling possible. Then, recent efforts and research activities will be discussed regarding the fabrication and characterization of non-volatile memory devices made of nanostructured materials and by nanofabrication. This review concludes with an analysis of device fabrication strategies and device architectures beyond the device scaling limit with an emphasis on some promising technologies from bottom-up approaches. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

Analyzing the Indonesian Family Life Survey for the year 2007, this paper estimates that a 10 cm increase in physical stature is associated with an increase in earnings of 7.5% for men and 13.0% for women, even after controlling for an extensive set of productivity variables. When the height premium is estimated by sector, it is 12.3% for self-employed men and 18.0% for self-employed women; a height premium of 11.1% is also estimated for women in the private sector. In the public sector, however, the height premium estimate is not statistically significant for either men or women. This paper provides further evidence of discrimination based on customers' preferences for tall workers. © 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
