Moreover, we found that bettors who had ended up losing on their last active betting day i. The hazard function is an indicator of the risk of having had another betting experience by each time-since-previous-betting-day, as indicated on the x-axis. We found that the shape of the hazard function in Fig.
In general, this shape of hazard function supported using a log-logistic, log-normal or generalised gamma distribution assumption e. Bradburn et al. The main betting days in the Finnish horse race betting are Wednesdays and Saturdays. During the data period, the main track in the country Vermo, Helsinki organised a popular pool game on Wednesday and another popular pool was offered at changing venues on Saturday.
Given the systematic differences in the number of bettors between the days of the week, we included the day of the week dummy variables in our regression model. This section examined the association between the time to the next betting activity and independent variables using survival regression. An interaction term with experience allowed a similar test based on how experienced bettor an individual was. Footnote 2 On the other hand, untypically high losses or wins in the last betting session were not significant predictors of the amount of time to the next betting event.
We also found that the past frequency of betting was a strong predictor of current betting frequency. Thus, bettors who had a high frequency in the first period were also likely to have a high number of betting days in the second period and thus return to wagering faster than bettors with a low frequency in the past. Footnote 3 First, we found that loser on last betting day is a significant and positive predictor of the amount og time to the next betting day in all models.
Thus, we found that bettors who broke even or won returned to betting faster. Second, the coefficient on experience was negative and non-significant in Model 1. Thus, we found that bettors with high experience were less affected by having a losing day, since they re-entered betting faster after a losing day than bettors with low experience.
Thirdly, the coefficient on age was negative and significant in Model 1. This implies that there was a difference in how younger and older bettors reacted to a losing day. We found that older bettors tended to return to betting sooner after losses than younger bettors did. Next we provide some numerical examples on how experience , age and loser on last betting day are linked to the time to the next entry to gambling in Model 3 while keeping other covariates constant.
For instance, consider a years-old bettor who was a loser on the last betting day. For a low experience bettor, our model predicted a Next, we illustrate how age predicts time to next event. The model predicted that this bettor would return betting The model predicts that this older bettor would stay away from betting only Overall, we perceived that bettors with different experience or age reacted differently to being a loser on last betting day , but the magnitude of these differences were minor.
In conclusion, loser on last betting day in our models predicted that the average bettor stayed away from betting longer after a losing day than after a winning day, regardless of his or her age and the level of experience. This paper added to the small but growing research area which uses player account data to study how past gambling outcomes affect current gambling consumption.
We focused on how the outcome of a betting day influenced the amount of time to the next betting event among online horse bettors. We employed survival regression, which has not been commonly used in the field of gambling studies. Our result also expanded the study of Suhonen and Saastamoinen , who studied how a prior outcome of betting affects current consumption during a session, also using Finnish online horse race betting data.
They found that during a session a bettor tends to make less risky betting choices in the next race if the bettor is losing. Thus, we found a reduction in gambling activity for the average bettor in between gambling sessions. This finding is consistent with the majority of the previous literature i. We also found that this pattern was stronger for younger bettors and for relative newcomers to horse betting. We found that previous betting frequency is a strong predictor of current betting frequency for the average bettor.
This is consistent with the previous literature i. Additionally, we found that untypically high losses or wins for a person on the last betting day did not predict the amount of time to the next gambling visit for the average player. Thus, we found that whether the average bettor wins or loses in the previous betting session untypically large amount, he or she did not change his or her frequency of participation in gambling.
Alternatively, our result suggest that finishing ahead or breaking even in gambling is a decisive factor for a bettor, whereas the amount won is not. This is a surprising result and requires, perhaps, further research, since Forrest and McHale reported the opposite with longer data period from casino gambling. Footnote 5. To overcome the limitations of the study, future studies could employ data sets that include all betting types and cover longer periods of time than the one month used in this study.
The longer data period would provide more comprehensive analysis for at least two reasons. First, with the day data used we were unable to reliably measure typical losses. Typical losses were measured during the first day period, which may be subject to noise at least for the less frequent bettors. Second, instead of providing only the results for the average bettor, we could be able to provide estimation results at an individual-level as Narayanan and Manchanda and Forrest and McHale have done.
This would provide more detailed information on diverse bettor profiles, particularly of bettors who increase their risk in gambling after losses. Moreover, using longer data periods in the future studies could enable shedding light on the prevalence of loss-chasing behaviour in different gambling forms. In conclusion, we found that the average bettor stayed away longer from betting after a losing day than otherwise. This was an important finding, since previous studies have found that bettors tended to reduce their stakes after a losing session.
We expanded this literature by finding a reduction pattern in betting activity for the average bettor after a losing session with a time- related metric in online gambling. Thus, we provided information on the representative player on a question that all problem gambling screens include: whether a respondent returns for another day to try to win back his or her losses.
In addition, our findings in a sense validated that loss-chasing behaviour is clearly unusual in a population of gamblers. As a robustness check, we also estimated models employing only regular bettor data and the main results were qualitatively similar to those reported here. We also experimented with including an interaction term between female and loser on last betting day , but since it was non-significant we did not include it in our model. This implies that there is no gender difference in how individuals modify behaviour in response to having lost money on the most recent betting day.
As a robustness check, we also used cumulative losses and wins, but the result remains the same. Given that, this study does not use the weighting procedure of attributes presented in Forrest and McHale Bradburn, M.

Correspondence to Sridhar Narayanan. The joint posterior distribution of all parameters is proportional to the product of the likelihood and the prior densities and is given by. The full conditional distributions for each parameter vector is obtained by taking out all the terms from the joint posterior distribution in Eq. We inspect these terms to see if they are from known distribution families. The joint posterior in our case is somewhat atypical because of the selection problem.
However, on closer inspection, it turns out that they can be written as normal distributions. Thus, we can write the density of d it i. Thus, we have the following full conditional distributions for the parameters. We can ignore the other terms since they affect only the proportionality constant and not the kernel of the density.
However, there is one significant difference.

The major difference between Contiguous and Noncontiguous memory allocation is that the contiguous memory allocation assigns the consecutive blocks of memory to a process requesting for memory. On the contrary, the noncontiguous memory allocation assigns the separate memory blocks at a different location in memory space in a nonconsecutive manner to a process requesting for memory.
We will discuss some more differences between contiguous and non-contiguous memory allocation with the help of comparison chart shown below. Allocates separate blocks of memory to a process. Overheads Contiguous memory allocation does not have the overhead of address translation while execution of a process.
Noncontiguous memory allocation has overhead of address translation while execution of a process. Execution rate A process executes fatser in contiguous memory allocation A process executes quite slower comparatively in noncontiguous memory allocation. Solution The memory space must be divided into the fixed-sized partition and each partition is allocated to a single process only. Divide the process into several blocks and place them in different parts of the memory according to the availability of memory space available.
Table A table is maintained by operating system which maintains the list of available and occupied partition in the memory space A table has to be maintained for each process that carries the base addresses of each block which has been acquired by a process in memory. Hence the main memory is divided into two partitions: at one partition the operating system resides and at other the user processes reside. In usual conditions, the several user processes must reside in the memory at the same time, and therefore, it is important to consider the allocation of memory to the processes.
The Contiguous memory allocation is one of the methods of memory allocation. In contiguous memory allocation, when a process requests for the memory, a single contiguous section of memory blocks is assigned to the process according to its requirement. The contiguous memory allocation can be achieved by dividing the memory into the fixed-sized partition and allocate each partition to a single process only.
But this will cause the degree of multiprogramming, bounding to the number of fixed partition done in the memory. The contiguous memory allocation also leads to the internal fragmentation. Like, if a fixed sized memory block allocated to a process is slightly larger than its requirement then the left over memory space in the block is called internal fragmentation.
When the process residing in the partition terminates the partition becomes available for the another process. In the variable partitioning scheme, the operating system maintains a table which indicates, which partition of the memory is free and which occupied by the processes. The contiguous memory allocation fastens the execution of a process by reducing the overheads of address translation.
The Non-contiguous memory allocation allows a process to acquire the several memory blocks at the different location in the memory according to its requirement. The noncontiguous memory allocation also reduces the memory wastage caused due to internal and external fragmentation.
As it utilizes the memory holes, created during internal and external fragmentation. In non-contiguous memory allocation, the process is divided into blocks pages or segments which are placed into the different area of memory space according to the availability of the memory.
