Existence theory in economics is usually in real domains such as the findingsof chaotic trajectories in models of economic growth, tâtonnement, oroverlapping generations models. Computational examples, however, sometimesconverge rapidly to cyclic orbits when in theory they should be nonperiodicalmost surely. We explain this anomaly as the result of digital approximationand conclude that both theoretical and numerical behavior can still illuminateessential features of the real data. 
Strange Attractors Generated by Multiple-Valued Static Memory Cell with Polynomial Approximation of Resonant Tunneling Diodes
Analysis of the multiple-valued memory system (MVMS) composed by a pair of the resonant tunneling diodes, numerical values of the parameters are calculated such that funnel and double spiral chaotic attractor is observed. Expand
Multi-valued static memory with resonant tunneling diodes as natural source of chaos
This paper brings deep study focused on dynamical behavior associated with a multi-valued static memory (MVSM) cell composed by a pair of the resonant tunneling diodes. Ampere–voltage characteristicExpand

Testing for Reverse Causation and Omitted Variable Bias in Regressions
This paper shows through regression simulations that, when there are two highly collinear regressors, at least one of which has a simultaneous relationship with the dependent variable, t-ratiosExpand


Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos in Optimal Growth: An Example
This study demonstrates the possibility of ergodically chaotic optimal accumulation in the case in which future utilities are discounted arbitrarily weakly. For this purpose, the authors use aExpand
Optimal Cycles and Chaos: A Survey
This paper surveys the literature on cyclical and chaotic equilibrium paths in deterministic optimal growth models with infinitely lived agents. We focus on discrete time models but also brieflyExpand
The role of chaotic processes in econometric models
In this paper we investigate the suggestion that the conventional stochastic disturbance term is not an essential feature of an economic model as it can be replaced by a suitable chaoticExpand
Imperfect foresight and chaos: an example of a self-fulfilling mistake
Abstract We consider an overlapping generations economy with a single production sector and a government. First we assume that the households have imperfect foresight in the sense that they cannotExpand
Period Three Implies Chaos
The way phenomena or processes evolve or change in time is often described by differential equations or difference equations. One of the simplest mathematical situations occurs when the phenomenonExpand
On the consistency of backward-looking expectations: The case of the cobweb
In dynamic models of economic fluctuations backward-looking expectations with systematic forecasting errors are inconsistent with rational behaviour. In non-linear dynamic models exhibiting seeminglyExpand
S>The properties of certain non-linear transformations in Euclidean spaces--mainly in two or three dimensions--are examined. The transformations, generally of very special and simple algebraic form,Expand
Adaptive Processes and Economic Theory
A general model of adaptive economizing is posed, a model that incorporates strategic considerations of the dynamic programming genre, but which is based on the behavioral principle of bounded rationality. Expand
