This dataset is part of the research project on internationalization of intrastate armed conflicts funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) according to the research project № 18-314-00006\18. It proceeds from an alternative expanded conceptualization of the phenomenon of internationalized internal conflict which argues that accounting for involvement of external state-based actors into intrastate conflict is insufficient for understanding the complex interplay between various international, transnational and cross-border processes that form multiple reinforcing and counterbalancing links and feedback loops. To this end, we offer re-operationalization of the internationalization phenomenon based on an integrated three-dimensional framework which differentiates between three dimensions of internationalization (interpreted in a broader sense). The horizontal dimension (horizontal escalation) represents varied processes through which the spatial spread of organized violence (often originated on the sub-state level) affects the territory of other (usually neighboring) countries leading to consequences (usually destabilizing) for both the source state and the recipient state. The vertical dimension (vertical escalation) covers the processes by which either the structure of a conflict gets expanded to involve outside (foreign) actors, normally as secondary (supporting) parties, or (often as a result of the former) the nominal level of conflict gets upgraded from intrastate to interstate. Vertical escalation is enabled either through an attack by a source state on the territory or subjects of one or more of its neighbors (outward-directed vertical escalation), or alternatively through intervention by a state-based external actor into the original internal conflict (inward-directed vertical escalation). Finally, the systemic dimension (systemic escalation) denotes the expansion of international systemic limits of original conflict by increased political stake, interest and/or attention of various international actors vis-à-vis the conflict in question, through its “proxy-fication” or connectedness with other conflicts in the neighborhood. The proposed dimensions are conceptual constructs aimed at facilitating the analysis of conflict dynamics and are not intended to be interpreted literally. This current version of the dataset (2.0) covers the universe of armed conflicts in the regions of Europe (excl. FSU), Former Soviet Union (FSU), and Asia for the period from 1975 to 2018, and the Middle East and North Africa region for the period from 1989 to 2018.

This code source is a simulation of a hybrid high dimensional automated guided vehicle system design model in python. In fact, our approach aims to solve the problem of dimension growth in a convex 2D environment of an Automated Guided Vehicle System (AGVS), using a Deep reinforcement learning control system of kernels with low dimensions.

We study productivity and welfare provision in three megacities, Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou in China. We developed an economic model, which regards individuals as both consumers of private and public goods and suppliers of labor in the production process, operating within the Hukou system which constrains entitlement to public goods and services for internal migrants. We, thus, explored the impact of restricting migrants’ access to public goods and services on their overall utility and utility derived from using key public services, analyzed how such restrictions distort effects of income on utility, and established a trade-off between megacity residency and productivity of the sectors employing them. Given the similarities between limits to public provision impose through Hukou in China and various entitlement restrictions endured by international migrants in other countries, our study has the potential to inform wider international debates. We collected survey responses from 1,500 individuals from these three megacities and validated the key implications of the model. Being a migrant adversely affected overall life satisfaction (utility) and satisfaction with public services. Migrants were likely to accept lower pay in exchange for megacity residency, thus they experienced a welfare loss due to skill mismatch despite potential welfare gains from better access to public services through residency in a megacity. Migrants’ residency value is also positively related to the technology of the sector employing them, a finding perhaps explaining why high-tech sectors could sponsor Hukou transfer.

the QoS-WSC test data-set is introduced and provided for the researchers, to be used for QoS-aware web-services discovery and composition. Service specification files (WSDL files) of this data-set have been generated by injecting QoS index vectors into service specification files of the WSC05 data-set. The injected QoS index vectors have been randomly picked from the QWS ver2.0 data-set. For generating service discovery and composition requests, the QoS importance coefficients vector has also been added to requests available in the WSC05 data-set. The optimal answer is also calculated and recorded for each request.

During the 7~9th century, the Tibetan Empire constituted a superpower between Tang Empire and the Abbasid Caliphate: one that played a significant role in geopolitics in Asia during the Early Medieval Period. It is unclear what factors led to the rise and rapid decline of this powerful empire: the only united regime in the Tibetan history. We present sub-annual scale precipitation and decadal-scale temperature records in the central Tibetan Plateau, indicating that the height of this empire coincided with a two centuries long interval of uncharacteristically warm and humid climate. The ameliorated climate enabled the expansion of arable land and increased agricultural production. This has implications for agricultural production in alpine regions including Tibetan Plateau in context of current global warming. The elevation data of the Tibetan Plateau (26°00’-39°47’N, 73°19’-104°47’E) was downloaded for the GDEMDEM 30M digital elevation data from the Geospatial Data Cloud (http://www.gscloud.cn/sources/list_dataset/421?cdataid=302&pdataid=10&datatype=gdem_utm2#dlv=Wzg4LFswLDEwLDEsMF0sW1siZGF0YWlkIiwxXV0sW10sOTld). Because the dataset is 3.48 GB in zipped format (14.98GB in raster format), which can be downloaded from the original website. If there are any problems, please contact us directly.
