Spatial price equilibrium: Advances in theory, computation and application. Papers presented at the Thirty-First North American Regional Science Association Meeting held at Denver, Colorado, USA, November 1984. (English) Zbl 0568.90002
Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems, 249. Berlin etc.: Springer-Verlag. VII, 277 p. DM 45.00 (1985).
This volume presents ten empirically oriented spatial equilibrium models. The solution concepts range from perfect competition, to noncooperative (Cournot-Nash) and cooperative equilibria. Computational aspects are discussed in every case; the papers address both theoretical and empirical issues (some discuss equilibrium concepts and solution algorithms; others investigate the impact of deregulation proposals in various industries). As such, the volume presents a rather comprehensive account of the current state of the art, and is a useful modern complement to Judge and Takayama’s pioneering work in “Spatial and Temporal Price and Allocation Models”, North Holland (1971).
