Gerard Debreu(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume covers a large range of topics from many areas of economics ranging from conceptual and methodological foundations of economic theory to theoretical and empirical demand analysis. It includes articles on the economics of the public sector, of network industries, and of imperfect competition; on general equilibrium analysis and game theory; and on experimental, monetary, and financial economics. Papers presenting original research are supplemented by stimulating surveys. They together offer a broad spectrum for professional economists and doctoral students alike. Among the authors are some of the world's leading economists including two Nobel Laureates."Jacket

New concepts and techniques for equilibrium analysis by
Gerard Debreu(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1961 and 1963 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the study of the existence of an equilibrium for a private ownership economy, one meets with the basic mathematical difficulty that the demand correspondence of a consumer may not be upper semicontinuous when his wealth equals the minimum compatible with his consumption set. One can prevent this minimumwealth situation from ever arising by suitable assumptions on the economy; for example, it is postulated that free disposal prevails and that every consumer can dispose of a positive quantity of every commodity from his resources and still have a possible consumption. However, assumptions of this type have not been readily accepted on account of their strength, and this in spite of the simplicity that they give to the analysis. The first purpose of this study is to attempt to unify these various approaches

A social equilibrium existence theorem by
Gerard Debreu(
Book
)
4 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a wide class of social systems each agent has a range of actions among which he selects one. His choice is not however entirely free and the actions of all the other agents determine the subset to which his selection is restricted. Once the action of every agent is given, the outcome of the social activity is known. The preferences of each agent yield his complete ordering of the outcomes and each one of them tries by choosing his action in his restricting subset to bring about the best outcome according to his own preferences. The existence theorem presented here gives general conditions under which there is for such a social system an equilibrium, i.e., a situation where the action of every agent belongs to his restricting subset and no agent has incentive to choose another action

The coefficient of resource utilization by
Gerard Debreu(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1951 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A numerical evaluation of the 'dead loss' associated with a nonoptimal situation (in the Pareto sense) of an economic system is sought. Use is made of the intrinsic price systems associated with optimal situations of whose existence a noncalculus proof is given. A coefficient of resourceutilization yielding measures of the efficiency of the economy is introduced. The treatment is based on vector set properties in the commodity space. (Author)

Nonnegative square matrices by
Gerard Debreu(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nonnegative indecomposable matrices are studied from the point of view of the Brouwer fixed point theorem; a concise proof of their basic properties is thus obtained. Properties of a general nonnegative square matrix A are derived from those of nonnegative indecomposable matrices. Theorems about the matrix sIA are proved; they cover in a unified manner a number of results recurringly used in economics. A systematic study of the convergence of A(P) when p tends to infinity (A is a general complex matrix) is linked to combinatorial properties of nonnegative square matrices
