Philosophical Studies in Contemporary Culture #5: Computational Economic Systemsby Manfred (edt) Gilli
Synopses & Reviews
The approach to many problems in economic analysis has changed drastically with the development and dissemination of new and more efficient computational techniques. Computational Economic Systems: Models, Methods & Econometrics presents a selection of papers illustrating the use of new computational methods and computing techniques to solve economic problems. Part I of the volume consists of papers which focus on modelling economic systems, presenting computational methods to investigate the evolution of behavior of economic agents, techniques to solve complex inventory models on a parallel computer and an original approach for the construction and solution of multicriteria models involving logical conditions. Contributions to Part II concern new computational approaches to economic problems. We find an application of wavelets to outlier detection. New estimation algorithms are presented, one concerning seemingly related regression models, a second one on nonlinear rational expectation models and a third one dealing with switching GARCH estimation. Three contributions contain original approaches for the solution of nonlinear rational expectation models.
Book News Annotation:
A selection of 14 papers from a June 1994 meeting in Amsterdam illustrate the use of new computational methods and computing techniques to solve economic problems. The topics include investigating the evolution of behavior of economic agents, solving complex inventory models on a parallel computer, an original approach to constructing and solving multi-criteria models involving logical conditions, applying wavelets to outlier detection, new estimation algorithms, and solving nonlinear rational expectation models.
