    The research is aimed at analyzing and finding the reasons for the specific development of the solar energy market of Ukraine, defining the interaction on the part of the State and its role, furthermore the role of monopolists-generators and small generating equipment in private households. As result of the research, the following issues are considered: specifics of the formation of a share of the segment of solar power plants among renewable energy sources; the largest companies – solar energy generators in Ukraine; dynamics of changes in the «green» tariff and installed capacity of solar power plants over the past decade; development of the direction of small solar power plants installed by households and the largest generating regions of Ukraine by both the number and the installed capacity of the households’ SPP. Analyzing modern analytical reports on renewable energy generation, it is appropriate to note that a system of indicators, which is being created currently to reflect the real state of development of renewable energy, indicates a certain prospect of scientific research in this direction. Modern problems of development of the generating renewable energy market are defined, among which the following are defined: changes in legislation on the «green» tariff, which leads to changes in the investment climate and attractiveness of generation projects, the conflicting mechanisms of tariff auctions; potential threat of shortage of both storage and transport capacities (due to disproportionate development of generation volumes and its infrastructure support) etc. Based on the analysis of existing development trends, conclusions have been drawn about the future state and development of the solar energy generation market. The need to form a balanced national strategy for the development of renewable energy, taking into account the current conditions for reducing the «green» tariff and the cost of generating equipment, as well as taking into account the national interests of the State, the interests of monopolists and households, has been established

    The article proposes a method for evaluating professionally important socio-psychological characteristics of a pharmacy specialist. To determine the level of development of socio-psychological characteristics, the feasibility of using integrated and integral indicators has been proved. Materials and methods. To achieve the goal set in the study, the following methods were used: the method of generalization, grouping and logical analysis, economic and mathematical methods, namely the taxonomy method, which was used to calculate the complex social and psychological components of the level of development of professionally important characteristics of pharmacy specialists and their integral magnitude. The expert method was used to determine the components that make up the professionally important socio-psychological characteristics of pharmacy specialists. The opinion of the respondents is justified, as evidenced by the concordance coefficient exceeding the established threshold value (0.75) and the Pearson criterion (the calculated value of which is higher than the table value taking into account the number of degrees of freedom). 995 pharmacy specialists from all regions of Ukraine participated in the survey. Testing was used to assess the level of development of professionally important social and psychological characteristics of pharmacy specialists. Results. On the basis of the conducted studies, it was proved that the complex indicator of the level of development of professionally important psychological qualities of a pharmacy specialist should include indicators of his psycho-emotional stability, volitional, moral and intellectual qualities.A comprehensive indicator of the level of development of professionally important social qualities of a pharmacy specialist should include indicators of the level of his personal attitude, attitude towards people and work. The indicators included in the listed qualities were determined using the weighted average rank of each component and the level of development of the corresponding qualities determined on the basis of testing by pharmacy specialists. Then, using the taxonomic method, the integral indicator of the level of development of professionally important socio-psychological characteristics was calculated, depending on the size of which the pharmacists were divided into three groups. And on the basis of the separation of pharmacy specialists, the development of directions for the development or improvement of their professionally important socio-psychological characteristics is carried out.Conclusions. The expediency of using complex and integral indicators for assessing the level of development of professionally important socio-psychological characteristics of pharmacists, calculated using the taxonomic method, has been proved

    Measurement of the cross-section and charge asymmetry of WW bosons produced in proton-proton collisions at s=8\sqrt{s}=8 TeV with the ATLAS detector

    This paper presents measurements of the W+μ+νW^+ \rightarrow \mu^+\nu and WμνW^- \rightarrow \mu^-\nu cross-sections and the associated charge asymmetry as a function of the absolute pseudorapidity of the decay muon. The data were collected in proton--proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 8 TeV with the ATLAS experiment at the LHC and correspond to a total integrated luminosity of 20.2~\mbox{fb^{-1}}. The precision of the cross-section measurements varies between 0.8% to 1.5% as a function of the pseudorapidity, excluding the 1.9% uncertainty on the integrated luminosity. The charge asymmetry is measured with an uncertainty between 0.002 and 0.003. The results are compared with predictions based on next-to-next-to-leading-order calculations with various parton distribution functions and have the sensitivity to discriminate between them.Comment: 38 pages in total, author list starting page 22, 5 figures, 4 tables, submitted to EPJC.
