- Exact Controllability of Backward Stochastic Control Systems
Abstract: Exact Controllability of Backward Stochastic Control Systems
Author Xiangrong WangHong Huan
This paper gives a necessary condition of exact controllability for backward stochastic control systems, and introduces three equivalent conditions of necessary and sufficient for the linear system to be exactly controllable. Finally, as an application of this stochastic control system, two examples on the optimal portfolio problem with consumption will be given.
- Enhancing the Belief and Self-efficacy of Engineers for Management: An
Interactive Learning Model
Abstract: Enhancing the Belief and Self-efficacy of Engineers for Management: An Interactive Learning Model
Author Quey-Jen Ye
Little research considers interactive learning in engineering management. This study proposes a collaborative learning style for engineering workers facing a managerial transition. The examination features three learning opportunities: class lessons, job characteristics, and self-sustaining. A structural equation model serves to test propositions pertaining to their interactive effects based on implicit belief and self-efficacy theories, which stress how beliefs about improvement of managerial abilities mediate between the learning and capability and performance self-efficacies. Tests among 449 engineering workers from Taiwan’s technical firms reveal the significance of this model. Each learning contributes separate advantage: classroom lessons most favoured performance efficacy, job characteristics most favoured improvement beliefs, and self-sustaining favoured competency efficacy the most. Ideally, a combined approach appears even better, and successful outcomes arise for those who can connect their needs with emergent learning opportunities.
