In this article third and fourth order efficiency are studied in the framework of translation equivariant location estimators. We assume X_1,...,X_n i.i.d. f•− θ. By recognizing that equality in a special form of the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality leads to a certain dependence of the cumulants of the maximum likelihood estimator MLE for ...

The impact of our energy systems on the climate mandates an energy system transition. In this paper a combination of existing concepts and approaches to take on such transitions is discussed. This combination starts with first defining the unit of analysis, after which actors in the socio-technical energy system are charted through literature resea...
