Overview

In the field of economic analysis, computability in the formation of economic hypotheses is seen as the way forward. In this book, Professor Velupillai implements a theoretical research program along these lines. Choice theory, learning rational expectations equlibria, the persistence of adaptive behavior, arithmetical games, aspects of production theory, and economic dynamics are given recursion theoretic (i.e. computable) interpretations.
