Input-output modeling has, over the years, supplied a constant and unifying concentration for IIASA's financial examine. Scientists operating within the Institute, first within the monetary modeling activity of the procedure and selection Sciences sector and later in the fiscal Structural swap venture, have cooperated greatly with colleagues during the international in advancing and contributing to input-output paintings.

This e-book highlights the newest study findings from the forty sixth foreign assembly of the Italian Statistical Society (SIS) in Rome, in which either methodological and utilized statistical examine was once mentioned. this option of absolutely peer-reviewed papers, initially provided on the assembly, addresses a extensive variety of themes, together with the speculation of statistical inference; facts mining and multivariate statistical research; survey methodologies; research of social, demographic and overall healthiness info; and fiscal information and econometrics.

This quantity is a variety of written notes resembling classes taught on the CIMPA tuition: "New developments in utilized Harmonic research: Sparse Representations, Compressed Sensing and Multifractal Analysis". New interactions among harmonic research and sign and snapshot processing have visible impressive improvement within the final 10 years, and a number of other technological deadlocks were solved throughout the solution of deep theoretical difficulties in harmonic research.

Consider the kth row: k m + k 2m + k (n - 1)m + k , where gcd(k , m) = 1 . Suppose im + k = jm + k ( mod n) , with 0 :::; i, j < n. Then n divides im + k - (jm + k) = (i - j)m. But, since gcd(m , n) = 1, it follows from Proposition 1 . 2 . e. i = j ( mod n) . This, together with the above inequalities involving i and j show that i = j . Therefore, no two elements in the kth row are congruent ( mod n) . 9, every element in the kth row is relatively prime to m. Since no two elements are congruent, their least residues are 0, 1 , 2 , .

Aa "' 2 "' ( mod m) . 1 . 7. CONGRUENCES 55 Example 1 . 7. 10. We compute 10 11 (mod 21) . First, 11 = 8 + 2 + 1, so we compute • • • • 10 ( mod 2 1 ) = 10, 1 02 ( mod 21) = 16, 1 04 ( mod 21) = 1 62 = 4, 1 08 ( mod 21) = 42 = 16. Thus 10 11 ( mod 21) = 4 · 16 · 10 = 19. 1 . 7. 5 Fermat 's little theorem We have seen that if p is a prime then p divides all the binomial coefficients ( : ), 1 ::::; k ::::; p - 1 . Because of this and the binomial theorem, we have (a + b)P = aP + lf (mod p) , for any integers a, b.

X = ak ( mod nk ) ( 1 . 7) has a simultaneous solution x E Z . Furthermore, if x, x ' are two solutions to (1. 7} then x' = x (mod n) . This follows from the k = 2 case proven above using mathematical induc tion. The details are left as an exercise. We give a different proof below. proof: As a runs over all n integers 0 ::::; a < n, the k-tuples (a ( mod n1 ) , . . , a ( mod nk )) form a collection of n distinct k-tuples in { 0, 1 , . . , n - 1 } k . ( Exercise: show why they are distinct.
