For each 312-avoiding permutation w [member of] [G.sub.n], let [F.sub.w] denote the descending star network corresponding to w by the bijection in the proof of Proposition 3.1.
For each descending star network [F.sub.w], the poset P([F.sub.w]) has exactly n elements: there is exactly one path from source i to sink i, for i = 1, ..., n.
To combinatorially interpret evaluations of [G.sub.n]-class functions and [H.sub.n] (q)-traces, we will fill (French) Young diagrams with path families ([[pi].sub.1], ..., [[pi].sub.n]) covering a descending star network [F.sub.w], and will call the resulting structures F-tableaux.
For some [G.sub.n]-class functions [theta], and all 312-avoiding permutations w, we may combinatorially interpret [theta]([C'.sub.w](1)) in terms of a star network [F.sub.w] as follows.
The superscript 1 refers to a linked firm in a partially connected network, and the superscript h denotes the "hub" in a star network. The superscripts e, [p.sup.0], p, [s.sup.0], s, and c stand for the empty, public partial, private partial, public-hub star, private-hub star, and complete networks, respectively.
(iv) Decreases with the degree of R&D spillovers except under a public partial network and a public-hub star network where it is nonmonotone and achieves a minimum when [beta] is approximately equal to 0.46 and 0.62, respectively.
By moving then to the public-hub star network, the public firm can appropriate technological know-how through not only direct but also indirect links.
Furthermore, within a public-hub star network, a private firm realizes that by increasing its own R&D effort it can enhance the public firm's payoff because the public firm takes into account private profit.
Star network members would have access to a broader array of products and services, including card production and website design and maintenance.
