Optima and equilibria : an introduction to nonlinear analysis by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

44 editions published between 1984 and 2003 in 5 languages and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in game theory and economic theory have proceeded hand in hand with that of nonlinear analysis and in particular, convex analysis. These theories motivated mathematicians to provide mathematical tools to deal with optima and equilibria. Jean-Pierre Aubin, one of the leading specialists in nonlinear analysis and its applications to economics and game theory, has written a rigorous and concise-yet still elementary and self-contained- text-book to present mathematical tools needed to solve problems motivated by economics, management sciences, operations research, cooperative and noncooperative games, fuzzy games, etc. It begins with convex and nonsmooth analysis, the foundations of optimization theory and mathematical programming. Nonlinear analysis is next presented in the context of zero-sum games and then, in the framework of set-valued analysis. These results are applied to the main classes of economic equilibria. The text continues with game theory: noncooperative (Nash) equilibria, Pareto optima, core and finally, fuzzy games. The book contains numerous exercises and problems: the latter allow the reader to venture into areas of nonlinear analysis that lie beyond the scope of the book and of most graduate courses.-(See cont.

Applied functional analysis by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

29 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Pierre Aubin updates his popular reference on functional analysis with new insights and recent discoveriesadding three new chapters on set-valued analysis and convex analysis, viability kernels and capture basins, and first-order partial differential equations. He presents, for the first time at an introductory level, the extension of differential calculus in the framework of both the theory of distributions and set-valued analysis, and discusses their application for studying boundary-value problems for elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations and for systems of first-order partial differential equations."--Jacket

Mathematical methods of game and economic theory by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

43 editions published between 1978 and 2007 in English and Dutch and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a unified treatment of optimization theory, game theory and a general equilibrium theory in economics in the framework of nonlinear functional analysis. It not only provides powerful and versatile tools for solving specific problems in economics and the social sciences but also serves as a unifying theme in the mathematical theory of these subjects as well as in pure mathematics itself
Differential inclusions : set-valued maps and viability theory by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A great impetus to study differential inclusions came from the development of Control Theory, i.e. of dynamical systems x'(t) = f(t, x(t), u(t)), x(O)=xo "controlled" by parameters u(t) (the "controls"). Indeed, if we introduce the set-valued map F(t, x)= {f(t, x, u)}ueu then solutions to the differential equations (*) are solutions to the "differen tial inclusion" (**) x'(t)EF(t, x(t)), x(O)=xo in which the controls do not appear explicitely. Systems Theory provides dynamical systems of the form d x'(t)=A(x(t)) dt (B(x(t))+ C(x(t)); x(O)=xo in which the velocity of the state of the system depends not only upon the x(t) of the system at time t, but also on variations of observations state B(x(t)) of the state. This is a particular case of an implicit differential equation f(t, x(t), x'(t)) = 0 which can be regarded as a differential inclusion (**), where the right-hand side F is defined by F(t, x)= {vlf(t, x, v)=O}. During the 60's and 70's, a special class of differential inclusions was thoroughly investigated: those of the form X'(t)E - A(x(t)), x (0) =xo where A is a "maximal monotone" map. This class of inclusions contains the class of "gradient inclusions" which generalize the usual gradient equations x'(t) = -VV(x(t)), x(O)=xo when V is a differentiable "potential". 2 Introduction There are many instances when potential functions are not differentiable

Neural networks and qualitative physics by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is devoted to some mathematical methods that arise in two domains of artificial intelligence: neural networks and qualitative physics. The rapid advances in these two areas have left unanswered several mathematical questions that should motivate and challenge mathematicians." "Professor Aubin makes use of control and viability theory in neural networks and cognitive systems, regarded as dynamical systems controlled by synaptic matrices, and set-valued analysis that plays a natural and crucial role in qualitative analysis and simulation. This allows many examples of neural networks to be presented in a unified way. In addition, several results on the control of linear and nonlinear systems are used to obtain a "learning algorithm" of pattern classification problems, such as the back-propagation formula, as well as learning algorithms of feedback regulation laws of solutions to control systems subject to state constraints." "Mathematical models involve many features of a problem that may not be relevant to its solution. Qualitative physics, however, deals with an imperfect knowledge of the problem model. It is therefore more suited to the study of expert systems, which are shallow models and do not require structural knowledge of the problem." "This book should be a valuable introduction to the field for researchers in neural networks and cognitive systems, and should help to expand the range of study for viability theorists."--Jacket

Viability theory by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work examines viability theory and its applications to control theory and differential games. The emphasis is on the construction of feedbacks and dynamical systems by myopic optimization methods. Systems of first-order partial differential inclusions, whose solutions are feedbacks, are constructed and investigated. Basic results are then extended to the case of fuzzy control problems, distributed control problems, and control systems with delays and memory. Aimed at graduate students and research mathematicians, both pure and applied, this book offers specialists in control and nonlinear systems tools to take into account general state constraints. Viability theory also allows researchers in other disciplines-artificial intelligence, economics, game theory, theoretical biology, population genetics, cognitive sciences-to go beyond deterministic models by studying them in a dynamical or evolutionary perspective in an uncertain environment. The book is a compendium of the state of knowledge about viability ... Mathematically, the book should be accessible to anyone who has had basic graduate courses in modern analysis and functional analysis ... The concepts are defined and many proofs of the requisite results are reproduced here, making the present book essentially self-contained.-Bulletin of the AMS Because of the wide scope, the book is an ideal reference for people encountering problems related to viability theory in their research ... It gives a very thorough mathematical presentation. Very useful for anybody confronted with viability constraints.-Mededelingen van het Wiskundig Genootschap

Mutational and morphological analysis : tools for shape evolution and morphogenesis by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The analysis, processing, evolution, optimization and/or regulation, and control of shapes and images appear naturally in engineering (shape optimization, image processing, visual control), numerical analysis (interval analysis), physics (front propagation), biological morphogenesis, population dynamics (migrations), and dynamic economic theory. These problems are currently studied with tools forged out of differential geometry and functional analysis, thus requiring shapes and images to be smooth. However, shapes and images are basically sets, most often not smooth. J.-P. Aubin thus constructs another vision, where shapes and images are just any compact set. Hence their evolution -- which requires a kind of differential calculus -- must be studied in the metric space of compact subsets. Despite the loss of linearity, one can transfer most of the basic results of differential calculus and differential equations in vector spaces to mutational calculus and mutational equations in any mutational space, including naturally the space of nonempty compact subsets. "Mutational and Morphological Analysis" offers a structure that embraces and integrates the various approaches, including shape optimization and mathematical morphology. Scientists and graduate students will find here other powerful mathematical tools for studying problems dealing with shapes and images arising in so many fields
Time and money how long and how much money is needed to regulate a viable economy by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents an unconventional approach to an important topic in economic theory. The author is an expert in the field of viability theory which was motivated by economics at the end of the 1970's. It is used here to analyze how an economy should be dynamically endowed so that it is economically viable. Economic viability requires an assumption on the joint evolution of commodities transactions, fluctuations of prices and numeraire units: the sum of the "transactions values" and the "impact of price fluctuations" should be negative or equal to zero. The book presents a computation of the minimum endowment which restores economic viability and derives the dynamic laws that regulate both transactions and price fluctuations. The target audience primarily comprises open-minded and mathematically interested economists but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students
Tychastic measure of viability risk by Jean Pierre Aubin( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a forecasting mechanism of the price intervals for deriving the SCR (solvency capital requirement) eradicating the risk during the exercise period on one hand, and measuring the risk by computing the hedging exit time function associating with smaller investments the date until which the value of the portfolio hedges the liabilities on the other. This information, summarized under the term ztychastic viability measure of risky is an evolutionary alternative to statistical measures, when dealing with evolutions under uncertainty. The book is written by experts in the field and the target audience primarily comprises research experts and practitioners
