1. Gelder, Alan Bruce. Multi-stage contests : theory and experiments.

Degree: PhD, Economics, 2014, University of Iowa

In a multi-stage contest known as a two-player race, players display two fundamental behaviors: (1) The laggard will make a last stand in order to avoid the cost of losing; and (2) the player who is ahead will defend his lead if it is threatened. Last stand behavior, in particular, contrasts with previous research where the underdog simply gives up. The distinctive results are achieved by introducing losing penalties and discounting into the racing environment. This framework permits the momentum effect, typically ascribed to the winner of early stages, to be more thoroughly examined. I study the likelihood that the underdog will catch up. I find that neck-and-neck races are common when the losing penalty is large relative to the winning prize, while landslide victories occur when the prize is relatively large. Closed-form solutions are given for the case where players have a common winning prize and losing penalty. Chapter 2 then experimentally examines the prediction of last stand behavior in a multi-battle contest with a winning prize and losing penalty, as well as the contrasting prediction of surrendering in the corresponding contest with no penalty. We find varied evidence in support of these hypotheses in the aggregated data, but more conclusive evidence when scrutinizing individual player behavior. Players tend to adopt one of several strategies. We develop a taxonomy to classify player types and study how the different strategies interact. The last stand and surrendering behaviors have implications for winning margins and the likelihood of an upset, which we investigate. Behaviorally, players are typically more aggressive when they reach a state in the contest by winning rather than by losing. The third and final chapter is a distinct departure from the study of multi-battle contests. Using comprehensive census data for Cornwall County, England, I create a panel dataset that spans six censuses (1841 – 1891)—possibly the largest panel dataset for Victorian England at present. I present the methodology for linking individuals and families across these censuses. This methodology incorporates recent advances in census linking (including the use of machine learning) and introduces new methods for tracking migration and changes in household composition. I achieve a forward matching rate of 43%. The additional inclusion of marriage and death records could allow for well over 60% of the population to be accounted for from one census to the next. Using this new panel, I investigate the frequency with which sons pursue the same occupations that they observed their fathers doing while growing up. For sons that did not follow in their father's footsteps, I identify some correlates that may have contributed to the change. Advisors/Committee Members: Kovenock, Daniel J. (supervisor).

2. Cross, Melissa. The forgotten soundtrack of Maoriland : imagining the nation through Alfred Hill's songs for Rewi's Last Stand : a thesis submitted to Massey University and Victoria University of Wellington in fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Music in Musicology .

Degree: 2015, Massey University

lfred Hill’s songs based on collected Māori musical materials and narrative themes are artefacts of cultural colonisation that represent individual identities and imagined communities. They are tangible evidence of the site of identity formation known as Maoriland within which Pākehā construct imaginings of ‘Māoriness’ to create their own sense of indigeneity and nationhood. Although early twentieth-­‐century Maoriland has been discussed widely in the arts and literature, scholars have not addressed the music of Maoriland, perhaps because it is heard today as the cultural form that most clearly expresses racialised sentimentality and colonial hegemony. However, Maoriland music can tell us much about New Zealand society if it is recognised as inhabiting an ‘in-­‐between’ place where Pākehā fascination for the racial other was often inseparable from an admiration for Māori promoted by a knowledgeable group of Māori and Pākehā cultural go-­‐betweens. This thesis presents a critical cultural analysis of the ethnic, racial, gendered, and national identities represented in Hill’s ‘Māori’ songs, viewed through the lens of his use of these in his score for Rudall Hayward’s film Rewi’s Last Stand (1940). This analysis shows that these popular songs contributed, and continue to contribute, to the nexus of Māori, war, and music in Pākehā narrations of the nation. By applying a bicultural approach to the study of Hill’s Maoriland songs, this research also shows these ‘in-­‐between’ songs represent individual, tribal, and national Māori identities too. While this work adds music to the discourse of Maoriland, and Maoriland to the discourse of New Zealand music and national identity, Hill’s ‘Māori’ music, early twentieth-­‐century New Zealand music, and New Zealand film music all remain severely under-­‐ researched areas of New Zealand music studies.

3. Brglez, Teja. Oblikovanje in izdelava deske za stoječe veslanje.

Degree: 2019, Univerza v Mariboru

V zadnjih letih tudi pri nas narašča zanimanje za stoječe veslanje, šport, pri katerem se na deski za stoječe veslanje (ang. Stand Up Paddle board) s pomočjo enega vesla pomikamo po vodi. Namen te magistrske naloge je preučitev oblike takšnih desk, njihovo oblikovanje in sama izdelava. Končni produkt naloge pa je izdelava paketa, ki bi vseboval vse potrebne materiale in načrte, s pomočjo katerih bi si lahko posameznik takšno desko izdelal sam.

Product design, Product manufacturing, stand up paddle boarding, sport

Advisors/Committee Members: Kaljun, Jasmin.

Subjects/Keywords: Oblikovanje izdelka; izdelava produkta; stoječe veslanje; šport; In the last years there has been an increased interest in stand up paddle boarding; sport in which you use one paddle on a large board to move on water.
