Computable Economics: The Arne Ryde Memorial Lectures

K. Velupillai

Abstract

In a discipline such as economics, increasingly devoted to its computational content, the mathematical underpinnings of the computability assumptions of economic fundamentals have not been investigated systematically or reasonably exhaustively. In this book, such an attempt is made for the first time. Choice theory, adaptively rational behaviour, induction, learning, arithmetical games, computational complexity of decision processes, growth theory, and the theory of economic fluctuations are given recursion theoretic (i.e, computable) interpretations. Economic theoretic questions, posed recurs ... More

Keywords: adaptive behaviour, arithmetical games, computability, computational complexity, economic theory, growth theory, induction, learning, recursion theory, undecidability
