   schema:reviewBody ""The book gives decision-theoretic foundations to seemingly slippery issues in labor market theory, estimation theory and economic dynamics in general, and surveys the entire field of the economics of search, including its history, theory, and econometric applications. Theoretical models of the economics of search are covered as well as estimation methods used in search theory, and topics covered include job search, turnover, unemployment, liquidity, house selling, real options and auctions. The mathematical methods used in search theory such as dynamic programming are reviewed as well as structural estimation methods and econometric methods for duration models. The authors also explore the classic sequential search model and its extensions in addition to recent advances in equilibrium search theory." "This book is relevant to all graduate economics courses in search theory. It is also a reference book for economists interested in search theory, mathematical economics and economic theory and philosophy"--book jacket." ;
