Complementing Büchi automata with a subset-tuple construction

Allred, Joel ; Ultes-Nitsche, Ulrich

(Internal working papers DIUF ; 15-01)

Complementation of Büchi automata is well known for being difficult. In the worst case, a state-space growth of (0:76n)n is unavoidable. Recent studies suggest that “simpler” algorithms perform better than more involved ones on practical cases. In this paper, we present a simple “direct” algorithm for complementing Büchi automata. It involves a structured subset construction (using...

Returns to farm child labor in Tanzania

André, Pierre ; Delesalle, Esther ; Dumas, Christelle

(Working Papers SES ; 502)

In developing countries, the opportunity costs of children’s time can significantly hinder universal education. This paper studies one of these opportunity costs: we estimate the agricultural productivity of children aged 10 to 15 years old using the LSMS-ISA panel survey in Tanzania. Since child labor can be endogenous, we exploit the panel structure of the data and instrument child labor...

Instrument-based estimation with binarized treatments : issues and tests for the exclusion restriction

Andresen, Martin Eckhoff ; Huber, Martin

(Working Papers SES ; 492)

When estimating local average and marginal treatment effects using instrumental variables (IV), multivalued endogenous treatments are frequently binarized based on a specific threshold in treatment support. However, such binarization introduces a violation of the IV exclusion if (i) the IV affects the multivalued treatment within support areas below and/or above the threshold and (ii) such...
