DSpace Repository

The Notre Dame University-Louaize Institutional Repository, known as DSpace, is a digital archive of the university's intellectual output accessible to others worldwide over the Internet. The institutional Repository contains a collection of research and publications written by academic authors, students, staff, alumni and research groups that have sufficient quality to be collected and preserved by the Library but which are not controlled by commercial publishers.

Notre Dame University members are eligible to engage in self-archiving of their digitally-born materials within the institutional repository. For self-archiving please review the Guidelines, Thesis Submission and the Submission Guidelines pages.

OR, you can email the publications you would like to add to: specialcollections@ndu.edu.lb

    In this thesis, we will prove a very important theorem in real analysis called The Area formula for the Hausdorff Measure. This theorem is an extension of the well known theorem the Change of variables formula for the Lebesgue measure. In this thesis, we will define the Hausdorff measure and prove some of its properties. We will also define Lipschitz functions and prove some of its properties also. Then, we continue the thesis by proving all the lemmas needed to finalize the proof of the Area formula for the Hausdorff measure. Finally, we finish this thesis by showing three applications of the ...

    Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are vital for managing any modern-day business. These systems aim to facilitate an organization's work by automating and integrating all business information and processes. However, ERP systems suffer from many problems that may cause an implementation failure. Many of these problems are related to usability, which is affected by the complexity of user interfaces (Uls). Usability can be defined in terms of an end-user's efficiency, effectiveness, and satisfactions. A study was conducted in this thesis to inquire about the usability problems that ...

    Purpose: This study investigates the occurrence of pre-acquisition accrual-based earnings management for a sample of stock- and cash- financed Canadian acquirers between 2005 and 2015 before and after transitioning IFRS in 2010. Design/methodology/approach: Both parametric (t-test) and non-parametric (Wilcoxon test) tests are used to examine the occurrence of accrual-based earnings management in the year preceding the announcement of acquisition. These are compared across stock and cash acquirers as well as before and after the implementation of the IFRS. Findings: Unlike cash acquirers, ...

    Purpose: this dissertation aims to detect what leadership style is mostly adopted in the alpha banks in Lebanon and investigates the corresponding impact of the different leadership styles on employee satisfaction. This study shall conclude the leadership style that should be most adopted to reach the highest level of employee satisfaction. Design/methodology/approach: the research approach was specified as a deductive one. Then, the population represented by the chosen sample of 124 bank employees, specifically 62 from each of LGB and Blom bank. In addition, the research strategy was specified ...

    Purpose: The purpose of this thesis is to shed more light on the impact of corporate governance mechanisms on the Initial Public Offering (IPO) performance of U.S. Equity Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) in the short and long run. Design/methodology/approach: I conduct multi-linear regressions on a sample of 89 US REIT IPO for the years 2003 to 2016. I compute the market adjusted excess returns for each of the first 5 days following the IPO to measure short-run IPO performance and the semi-annual cumulative abnormal returns for each of the three years following the IPO to measure ...
