Overview

Focusing on one of the major aspects of economic development, this book treats the integral economic models with embodied technological change and the controlled lifetime of technologies. Features of the book include: the theoretical basis and algorithmic tools for the analysis of industrial renovation under technical change; a variety of models and optimization problems with simulation examples of real economic systems; a qualitative study of optimal trajectories, including turnpike theorems, and their extended economic analysis; the development of the theory of the models in parallel with numerical algorithms and software.

Booknews
For researchers and graduate students of mathematical modeling or mathematical economics, explores integral economic models with embodied technological change and the controlled lifetime of technologies, models often used in economic development. Among the features discussed are the theoretical basis and algorithmic tools for analyzing industrial renovation under technical change, a variety of models and optimization problems with simulation examples of real economic systems, a qualitative study of optimal trajectories and their extended economic analysis, and the development of the theory of the models in parallel with numerical algorithms and software.
