Pollution decay, consumer awareness and optimal carbon taxes
(Discussion paper2004:7, Working paper, 2004-02)
The effects of non-linear decay and consumer preferences are analyzed in a setting where optimal extraction of non-renewable resources is combined with stock externalities. The control is exercised via a corrective tax and ...
Does stochasticity matter? : dynamic pigouvian taxation in an uncertain environment
(Discussion paper2004:6, Working paper, 2004-04)
The effects of discounting, stochasticity, non-linearities and maximum decay upon an optimal corrective tax are analyzed using stochastic dynamic optimization. Optimal corrective taxes are derived as explicit feedback ...
A method for numerical and analytical solutions to a class of nonlinear optimal control problems
(Discussion paper2004:2, Working paper, 2004-02)
Dynamic optimization problems cover a great class of problems in theoretical and applied economics and technology. In this account the exploitation of a general renewable capital stock is modeled through an alternative ...
An approach to adaptive carbon taxes in the presence of global warming
(Discussion paper1998:2, Working paper, 1998-01)
The optimal extraction path of fossil fuels and the corresponding corrective tax on extraction are derived when two types of externalities associated with emission of carbondioxide (CO2) are taken into account. The optimal ...
Adaptive regulation with flow and stock externalities
(Discussion paper1998:1, Working paper, 1998-01)
In confronting a consumer good whose production process is associated with both flow and stock externalities, a corrective tax is introduced to restore efficiency. The objective is to maximize social welfare over time when ...
Continuous harvesting costs in sole-owner fisheries with increasing marginal returns
(Discussion paper2009:6, Working paper, 2009-09)
We develop a bioeconomic model to analyze a sole-owner fishery with fixed costs as well as a continuous cost function for the generalized Cobb-Douglas production function with increasing marginal returns to effort level. ...
Stochastic Stackelberg equilibria with applications to time dependent newsvendor models
(Discussion paper2011:9, Working paper, 2011-05)
A survey and analysis of outsourcing in East China
(Discussion paper2009:5, Working paper, 2009-05)
The aim of this study is to investigate whether outsourcing activities in east china are associated with a theoretical framework derived from the literature. By the methodology of Statistics Package for the Social Science ...
A perturbation approach on a class of optimal control problems, unifying the pontryagin and dynamic programming approach
(Discussion paper2000:15, Working paper, 2000-06)
This article consider special ways of solving time dependent (non-autonomous) systems. Different types of time-dependent Optimal Control Problems in the setting of a Hamiltonian Formulation, are considered and the emphasis ...
Data assimilation into biomass dynamics models : a Monte Carlo simulation experiment
(Discussion paper2001:16, Working paper, 2001)
In this paper, we use a variational data assimilation method to fit biomass dynamics models to simulated data. The method is the variational adjoint technique in which a cost function measuring the distance between the ...
