Applied production analysis : a dual approach by Robert G Chambers( Book )
27 editions published between 1974 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 512 libraries worldwide
This book contains a modern treatment of production economics from a dual perspective, with a special emphasis on recent developments in the field. The book prepares the reader to apply the tools and concepts of the dual approach production economics to real world problems and data sets. Among other topics covered are flexible function forms, aggregation across inputs and outputs using the theory of separable structures, aggregation over economic optimizingfirms, the representation of multioutput technologies, and the analysis and measurement of technical change from both a primal and dual perspective
Uncertainty, production, choice, and agency : the state-contingent approach by Robert G Chambers( Book )
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 352 libraries worldwide
"This book demonstrates that the state-contingent approach provides the best way to think about all problems in the economics of uncertainty, including problems of consumer choice, the theory of the firm, and principal-agent relationships. The authors demonstrate that dual methods apply under uncertainty and that the dual representations can be developed for stochastic technologies. Moreover, proper exploitation of the properties of alternative primal and dual representations of preferences allows analysts to generalize and extend the results of the existing literature on preferences under uncertainty, thus making expected-utility theory largely superfluous for many decisions

Generalized quadratic revenue functions by Robert G Chambers( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
In this paper we focus on specification of revenue functions in their dual price space. We consider two distance functions, both dual to the revenue function: Shephard output distance function and the directional output distance function, both in price space. The former is multiplicative, satisfying homogeneity, the latter is additive satisfying transitivity. Functional equation methods yield translog specification for the Shephard case and quadratic for the directional case. Monte Carlo evidence suggests that the quadratic specification more precisely represents technology
