In this study, Monte Carlo Simulation tecnique is used in order to forecast sales demand a chosen company by using the firm's past and present data. The simulated values are compared with firm's real data. As the result is satisfactory the firm's next year's montly sales demand are also forcasded by the same technique in the same way. Finally, the results are tested by using statistics technıque.

    Rb[SUB2]MnF[SUB4] is believed to consist of very weakly coupled magnetic layers with isotropic superexchange between nearest neighbor Mn[SUP+2] ions in the same plane. To test this conjecture, Monte Carlo simulations were performed on a theoretical model consisting of stacked, nearest neighbor...

    This article provides a new maximum-likelihood estimator for selection models with dichotomous dependent variables when identical factors affect the selection equation and the equation of interest. Such situations arise naturally in game-theoretic models where selection is typically nonrandom...

    Abstract. Two issues are addressed in this paper. First, we explore the issue of price index invariance in the linearized Almost Ideal demand system. We establish that the Stone index, which lacks invariance, and the recently proposed invariant Laspeyres, Paasche and Tornqvist indices all...
