Intercountry Comparisons of Poverty Based on a Capability Approach: An Empirical Exercise
average expenditure of the reference quintile is scaled up linearly. The resulting scaledup expenditure suffices to make a scaledup bundle of characteristics in the assumed lower contour of the adequacy set, R1 , just affordable. This scaledup expenditure level is defined as the povert...

average expenditure of the reference quintile is scaled up linearly. The resulting scaledup expenditure suffices to make a scaledup bundle of characteristics in the assumed lower contour of the adequacy set, R1 , just affordable. This scaledup expenditure level is defined as the poverty line. If the equiproportionality assumption is correct and the true lower contour of the adequacy set is that which was assumed (i.e. Q1 ), then R1 is indeed on the lower contour of the adequacy set, and our

Since different commodity bundles contain these characteristics in different proportions, substitution between them may be possible, giving rise to a smooth lower <span class="highlight">contour</span> of the adequacy set (see Figure 2). <span class="highlight">For</span> example, it is conceivable that a lower level of food energy intake may suffice <span class="highlight">for</span> nutritional adequacy if fat, protein

“Computation” These notions of “formal symbol manipulation” and “computation” are technical, and ultimately derive from discussions in mathematics in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The project of formalization began in response to a crisis that developed...

? Pingala’s indexing process reverses the algorithm he developed for Problem 2. The index of the pattern of all long syllables is one. For any other pattern, start with the first short syllable from the right. The instruction is simply “multiply by two” (in order for the algorithm to work, the starting number must be one). If the next syllable on the left is , again multiply the resulting number by two; otherwise, multiply it by two and subtract one. Repeat this process until the leftmost character is reached. This

generalize to any length of pattern. Prastāras of one through four syllables are shown in Figure 1. Kedāra Bhatt gives an completely different <span class="highlight">algorithm</span> that nonetheless generates the list of nsyllable patterns in the same order Pingala uses [11, 5]. The first pattern on the list consists of n long syllables. Suppose you are given any pattern on the list (<span class="highlight">for</span> example, ). To get the next pattern, start from the left by writing long syllables: When you reach the position of the first long syllable in the previous
