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 ...
Stochastic Stackelberg equilibria with applications to time dependent newsvendor models
(Discussion paper2011:9, Working paper, 2011-05)
Approximating closed form solutions to a class of feedback policies
(Discussion paper2009:8, Working paper, 2009-09)
Dynamic optimization problems cover a large class of problems in theoretical and applied economics. A simple iterative algorithm with fast convergence is proposed. It is demonstrated that the algorithm in a few steps ...
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 ...
Fish wars on the high seas : a straddling stock competition model
(Discussion paper2001:8, Working paper, 2001-04)
The post World War II era saw the development of powerful self-contained fishing fleets, so-called distant-water fleets (DWFs), which roamed the worlds oceans, seeking out rich harvesting targets wherever they might be ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Implications of a nested stochastic/deterministic bio-economic model for a pelagic fishery
(Discussion paper2001:9, Working paper, 2001-03)
Use is made of an economically optimal feedback rule to determine optimal levels of exploitation of a pelagic fish species. Data from the southern bluefin tuna fishery for the years 1960-1996 are utilized to apply this ...
Mixed contracts for the newsvendor problem with real options
(Discussion paper2011:6, Working paper, 2011-04)
