In particular, we encourage applications that aim to investigate the relationship between i) the spot price of crude oil, ii) expectations of future oil prices, iii) the price of crude oil futures, iv) the oil futures spread (defined as the percent deviation of the oil futures price from the spot price of oil) and v)oil supply shocks. The overall research aim is to investigate what determines the spot and futures price of crude oil and the importance of the evolution of the price of oil in explaining oil production of OPEC and non-OPEC countries.
Applicants are expected to have a Masterís degree with a strong quantitative, mathematical or statistical focus. Programming experience in Java and MASON is desirable.
It is intended that successful applicants are enrolled before the 1st December 2010. There would be a generic advertisement in the national print and electronic media.
Found the error, as usual simple foolishness on my part. parallel
sequence does work like a charm!
Some text forthcoming about my project and publications in response to
your proposal note.
SteveParallel sequences should work like a charm: for example MASON'sHeatBugs example uses one.We recently had some discussion on the list about making sure that theparallel sequence's threads are properly gathered by simulation's end,but that shouldn't affect you at all.The entire of a parallel sequence will be executed in one step. Sofor example if you want all your fish to gather read-only (bethreadsafe remember) information about their world, and have four CPUson your machine, you could create a ParallelSequence which holds fourSequences, and load your fish, roughly balanced, into those fourSequences. Each time the schedule steps, all the fish will be steppedonce.Some possible places where you might be making an error: any chanceyou're rescheduling your fish agents rather than rescheduling theParallelSequence? And don't use a RandomSequence inside aParallelSequence.SeanOn Jul 19, 2010, at 3:31 PM, Steven Saul wrote:Hi Sean,Quick question: should a parallel sequence work when running mysimulation using the GUI? I use the GUI just to de-bug and makesure Icoded something correctly. With the parallel sequence, the simulationseems to go from start right to the end without stepping anything. Itruns fine on the command line. I assume this is a coding error on myside, but just wanted to make sure.Otherwise, I nearly have the whole sim parallelized including eventsthatdon't happen each time step such as initialziation of objects andrecuitment events.Thanks,Steve--Steven Saul, M.A.Graduate Assistant, Marine Biology and FisheriesCooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric StudiesCooperative Unit for Fisheries Education and ResearchUniversity of Miami - RSMAS4600 Rickenbacker Cswy.Miami, Florida 33149+ 1 305-421-4831
