This paper analyses the optimal timing of switching between alternative and consecutive regimes in optimal growth models. We derive the appropriate necessary conditions for such problems by means of the standard techniques from calculus of variations and some basic properties of Sobolev spaces.
This paper studies the existence and the order structure of strong Berge equilibrium, a refinement of Nash equilibrium, for games with strategic complementaritiesà la strong Berge. It is shown that the equilibrium set is a nonempty complete lattice. Moreover, we provide a monotone comparative statics result such that the greatest and the lowest equilibria… (More)
Cover: Column FE-model created using the software Genie showing general and structural arrangement (see Section 4 and 6) ABSTRACT In this thesis a column stabilized semi-submersible drilling platform is analyzed. The purpose is to improve the column design of a generic 4-column semi-submersible with regard to the outer shape, including the general… (More)
