Post-Faustmann Forest Resource Economics

The present paradigm of wooded area economics relies on Faustmann formula (FF) of land expectation price proposed via Martin Faustmann. It was once an excellent success through a forester to suggest a formula that captures a few primary financial gains of capital thought which. although, the fans of the FF strategy have trapped themselves into the prior, and feature now not proven any indication of monetary acumen of the good Faustmann.

Finally, if there is an actual demand excess of an instrument as liabilities and of the charges Fj (t) in the economy, then the price must be at the ceiling. We assume Fj ∈ L2 ([0, T ]), j = 1, . . , n. Now, we can give the equilibrium conditions. Definition 1. A vector of sector assets, liabilities and instrument prices m (x∗ (t), y∗ (t), r∗ (t)) ∈ ∏ Pi (x∗ , y∗ ) × R is an equilibrium of the dynamic financial i=1 model if and only if ∀i = 1, . . , m, ∀ j = 1, . . e. in [0, T ], it satisfies the system of inequalities 2 Qi11 + T j t · x∗i (t) + 2 Qi21 2 Qi11 0 T j T j · y∗i (t) · x∗i (t − τ ) + 2 Qi21 (1)∗ −(1 − τi j (t))r∗j (t) − μi 2 Qi22 + t T j · y∗i (t) + 2 Qi12 2 Qi22 0 T j T j · y∗i (t − τ ) d τ (t) ≥ 0, T j (6) · x∗i (t) · y∗i (t − τ ) + 2 Qi12 T j (2)∗ +(1 − τi j (t))(1 + h j (t))r∗j (t) − μi · x∗i (t − τ ) d τ (t) ≥ 0, (7) and equalities x∗i j (t) 2 Qi11 + t 0 T j · x∗i (t) + 2 Qi21 2 Qi11 T j T j · y∗i (t) · x∗i (t − τ ) + 2 Qi21 (1)∗ −(1 − τi j (t))r∗j (t) − μi (t) = 0, T j · y∗i (t − τ ) d τ (8) A Variational Approach to the Evolutionary Financial Equilibrium Problem.

Analyzing the listed situations requires a systems approach, and any such an analysis associated with studying the collective behavior of a set of economic objects and/or systems requires developing mathematical models that describe this behavior, which is challenging. The aim of this article is to demonstrate that the above six situations can be studied in the framework of two particular classes of games on polyhedral sets of the player strategies with payoff functions being sums of two linear functions of vector variables and a bilinear one of the same variables.

Barbagallo et al. e. e. in [0, T ] . The aim of this work is to prove the following existence theorem: Theorem 1. Let us assume that conditions (2), (3) are fulfilled and that the matrix Qi is symmetric and positive definite.
