Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform

Note:This book describes the processes through which rates for energy consumption are derived, ranging from initial analyses of the supply and demand parameters to the final forms and levels of end-use consumer prices. The authorargues against aggressive accounting procedures, and suggests criteria for choosing firm's position on pending public policy issues. A handbook on energy formulae for non-professionals is included in the book. The author is adjunctprofessor at the University of Portland

Title:Generalized Convexity and Optimization [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Alberto Cambini
Laura Martein
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The authors have written a rigorous yet elementary and self-contained book to present, in a unified framework, generalized convex functions, which are the many non-convex functions that share at least one of the valuableproperties of convex functions and which are often more suitable for describing real-world problems. The book will be a useful tool not only for researchers, but also for graduates and advanced students working in economics,mathematical programming, the management sciences and operati ons research. It begins with a review of convex analysis and the fundamental theoretical findings on generalized convexity and on optimization, including their applications.The text continues with an introductory chapter devoted to generalized monotonicit y and its relationship to generalized convexity, with the characterizations of important classes of fractional programming, and with theoreticalproperties and sequential methods. The book also includes numerous exercises and two appendices which list the findings consulted. I can highly recommend this excellent new volume to anyone who is trying to teach on generalizedconvexity/generalized monotonicity in an applied mathematics department or in a professional school. The volume contains proofs and exercis es. It also provides sufficient references for those who want to dig deeper as graduate studentsand as researchers. With dedication and much love the authors have produced a book that is accessible for anyone with a limited background in basic mathematics at the college level. At the same time, it also leads to more sophisticatedmathematics for those who spend more time on a particular chapter. From the Foreword, Siegfried Schaible, University of California, Riverside, USA

Title:Emergent Macroeconomics [electronic resource] : An Agent-Based Approach to Business Fluctuations
Author(s): Domenico Delli Gatti
Edoardo Gaffeo
Mauro Gallegati
Gianfranco Giulioni
Antonio Palestrini
Date:2008
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book contributes substantively to the current state-of-the-art of macroeconomics by providing a method for building models in which business cycles and economic growth emerge from the interactions of a large number ofheterogeneous agents. Drawin g from recent advances in agent-based computational modeling, the authors show how insights from dispersed fields like the microeconomics of capital market imperfections, industrial dynamics and the theoryof stochastic processes can be fruitfully combined to improve our understanding of macroeconomic dynamics. This book should be a valuable resource for all researchers interested in analyzing macroeconomic issues without recurring to afictitious representative agent

Date:2005
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Tokyo
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:A lot of economic problems can be formulated as constrained optimizations and equilibration of their solutions. Various mathematical theories have been supplying economists with indispensable machineries for these problems arisingin economic theory. Conversely, mathematicians have been stimulated by various mathematical difficulties raised by economic theories. The series is designed to bring together those mathematicians who are seriously interested in gettingnew challenging stimuli from economic th eories with those economists who are seeking effective mathematical tools for their research. The editorial board of this series comprises the following prominent economists and mathematicians:Managing Editors: S. Kusuoka (Univ. Tokyo), T. Maruyama (Keio Univ.). Editors: R. Anderson (U.C. Berkeley), C. Castaing (Univ. Montpellier), F.H. Clarke (Univ. Lyon I), G. Debreu (U.C. Berkeley), E. Dierker (Univ. Vienna), D. Duffie(Stanford Univ.), L.C. Evans (U.C. Berkeley), T.
