This paper models a service provision game between two vendors under symmetric and asymmetric cost structures, who compete in first-period service quality levels with each other, with the aim of winning the larger share of the buyer’s fixed reward in the second period. This game differs from the previous studies in that the buyer maintains dual sou...
Article
The growing popularity of blogs has drawn an increasing amount of attention from corporations keen to expand market share and establish better customer relationships. It is thus imperative to probe into why some blogs attract a tremendous amount of interest and why they are sustainable. Although there are a number of studies exploring the factors u...

A B-spline wavelet-based agent is proposed in this paper to remove impulsive noise embedded in noisy rigid body motion data. The motion of a rigid body consists of translation and orientation; the former is described by a space curve in three-dimensional Euclidean space, whereas the latter is represented by a curve in the unit quaternion space. Rig...

With IT outsourcing being a widely adopted business strategy, the objective of this study is to identify the status of competition as a mechanism for the client to induce service quality from the service providers. This paper brings up a game model of service level competition between two vendors with different marginal costs in a two-period framew...

... Holcomb and Hitt (2007) introduced two main perspectives, transaction cost theory and resource based view, which are available for application in strategic source. A lot of studies focusing on outsourcing strategies can be found in the literature, see for instance, Assid, Gharbi, and Hajji (2019), Cachon and Zhang (2006), Hsieh and Kuo (2011), Mo et al. (2019), Shen et al. (2015), Zhen (2012) and Kaya (2011). Ching, Choi, and Huang (2011) studied a model of outsourcing to N make-to-order suppliers. ...
... Shin [9] used the Kalman filter to deliver human movement to a computer character in real time for the first time. Hsieh [10] based on wavelet theory to remove impulse noise from motion sequences. He used multiresolution analysis to decompose noise data, the noise is assigned as coefficients of high magnitude, and then denoise them by smoothing these highmagnitude coefficients. ...
... The decision is dependent on the perceived characteristics of the innovation, while the confirmation process reflects the degree to which technology performance produces perceptions consistent with prior beliefs (Rogers, 1995). Research in the expectation-(dis)confirmation domain has focused on confirmation (Gong et al., 2018) or the positive disconfirmation front, whereby technology outperforms initial expectations (e.g. with studies focusing on the correlation between positive disconfirmation and satisfaction) (Hsieh et al., 2010, McKinney et al., 2002. Still, the literature lacks insight into the psychological consequences following technology performance that does not match up to prior beliefs. ...
