Experimental methods : a primer for economists by Daniel Friedman( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experimental economics is a rapidly growing field of inquiry, and there currently exist several textbooks and surveys describing the results of laboratory experiments in economics. This primer, however, is the first hands-on guide to the physical aspects of actually conducting experiments in economics. It tells researchers, teachers and students in economics how to deal with human subjects, how to design meaningful laboratory environments, how to design experiments, how to conduct experiments and how to analyse and report the data. It also deals with methodological issues. It can be used to structure an undergraduate or graduate course in experimental economics
Economics lab : an intensive course in experimental economics by Daniel Friedman( )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 589 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The new field of experimental economics has come of age, as signaled by the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics. Laboratory experiments with human subjects now provide crucial data in most fields of economics. This textbook introduces the world of experimental economics. Contributors including Reinhard Selten and Axel Leijonhufvud add to a book that sketches the history of experimental economics before moving on to describe how to set up an economics experiment and to survey selected applications and the latest methods. This user-friendly book demonstrates how students can use the lessons to conduct original research. With their freeflowing, discursive yet precise style Friedman and Cassar have created a book that will be essential to students of experimental economics across the world. On account of its authoritative content, Economics Lab will also find its way onto the bookshelves of leading researchers in all fields of economics"--Back cover
Morals and markets : an evolutionary account of the modern world by Daniel Friedman( Book )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The modern world is the marriage of morals and markets. Marital frictions between these two seemingly divergent forces can bring financial meltdowns, environmental disasters, criminal gangs, terrorism and war. Yet sometimes the marriage works well and spreads health and wealth across the globe. The book draws on recent academic research in evolutionary game theory and behavioral economics, and tells familiar stories like the rise of Google as well as forgotten tales like the Ponzi scheme that swallowed Albania. The characters range from amoebas and William Blake to Boris Yeltsin and Zorro. Engaging and insightful, Morals and Markets offers a fresh perspective on the modern world and new hope for the future."--Jacket

Morals and markets : the dangerous balance by Daniel Friedman( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedman and McNeill draw on recent research in evolutionary game theory and behavioral economics to explore the relationship between our moral codes and our market systems. They show how imbalance between morals and markets is at the root of the recent corporate scandals in the US as well as the global financial crisis the world continues to face. Economist Daniel Friedman draws on recent research in evolutionary game theory and behavioral economics to explore the relationship between our moral codes and our market systems. Why are they so often at odds? Friedman traces the evolutionary history of morals and markets, and argues that both are devices humans have evolved to cope with the inherent conflict between individual and group needs. Morals work well to prevent and solve this conflict within small groups, but tend to break down at larger scale. Markets efficiently organize the activities of very large groups - even billions of people - but large markets tend to be ruthless, ignoring the needs of individuals and small groups. Friedman shows how imbalance between morals and markets is at the root of such problems as the recent corporate scandals in the United States including the global financial crisis the world continues to face. On the other hand, balance between moral and market concerns has resulted in creative, sustainable solutions to some of our most intractable problems. Acid rain, for example, has been cut in half in large part because of emissions trading programs. Friedman explores this and other ways moral and market forces can be balanced to achieve better solutions than either could on its own
Evolutionary games in natural, social, and virtual worlds by Daniel Friedman( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authors Daniel Friedman and Barry Sinervo show how to use theoretical developments in evolutionary game theory to build useful models describing parts of the worlds we live in - the natural world of biology, the social world of politics, economics, etc., and the virtual world that is emerging from our connected electronic devices
Risky curves : on the empirical failure of expected utility by Daniel Friedman( )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For several decades, the orthodox economics approach to understanding choice under risk has been to assume that each individual person maximizes some sort of personal utility function defined over purchasing power. This new volume contests that even the best wisdom from the orthodox theory is inadequate, and proposes the return to a simpler sort of scientific theory of risky choice"--
The double auction market : institutions, theories, and evidence by Daniel Friedman( Book )

Movie palaces : renaissance and reuse by Joseph M Valerio( Book )

6 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the potential of U.S. movie theaters as an important national asset. Each of the 4,000 movie palaces constructed during Hollywood's Golden Age, as well as the countless smaller theaters modeled after the grander showcases, has a role to play in the life of today's cities. The first section of the book explores the social and economic history of the movie palace and the significance of the building phenomenon. Subjects such as the development of moving pictures, the marketing of them to the public, and the architectural style of movie palaces are examined. The leading theater architects are identified, and the decline of the large downtown theaters following World War ii is discussed. The second part of the book consists of case studies, drawn from projects nationwide, which reflect the programming options for theater renaissance. Motivations for movie palace reuse are summarized into three situations: (1) a user needs a facility; (2) a facility needs a user; or (3) a city needs a redevelopment anchor. The third section of the book, which profiles the lessons of the second, includes planning guidelines for theater economic feasibility studies, organizational structures, program environments, and adaptive reuse and operating costs. Four areas of theater function are explored: audience, performance, technology, and management. The book concludes with an annotated 76-item list of resources (publications, audiovisual presentations, and organizations) helpful to those contemplating movie palace redevelopment. Many sources listed lead to further information in the form of newsletters, bibliographies, and other organizational publications. The book is abundantly illustrated with black and white photographs and architectural drawings. (Gea)

Litigation with symmetric bargaining and two-sided incomplete information by Daniel Friedman( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We construct game theoretic foundations for bargaining in the shadow of a trial. Plaintiff and defendant both have noisy signals of a common-value trial judgment and make simultaneous offers to settle. If the offers cross, they settle on the average offer; otherwise, both litigants incur an additional cost and the judgment is imposed at trial. We obtain an essentially unique NE and characterize its conditional trial probabilities and judgments. Some of the results are intuitive, e.g., an increase in trial cost (or a decrease in the range of possible outcomes) reduces the probability of a trial. Other results reverse findings from previous literature. For example, trials are possible even when the defendant's signal indicates a higher potential judgment than the plaintiff's signal, and when trial costs are low, the middling cases (rather than the extreme cases) are more likely to settle
Equilibrium vengeance by Daniel Friedman( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper introduces two ideas, emotional state dependent utility components (ESDUCs), and evolutionary perfect Bayesian equilibrium (EPBE). Using a simple extensive form game, we illustrate the efficiency-enhancing role of a powerful ESDUC, the vengeance motive. Incorporating behavioral noise and observational noise leads to a range of (short run) Perfect Bayesian equilibria (PBE) involving both vengeful and non-vengeful types. We then derive two (long run) EPBE, one where both types survive and reap mutual gains, and a second where only the non-vengeful type survives and there are no mutual gains
Separating the hawks from the doves : evidence from continuous time laboratory games by Ryan Oprea( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human players in our laboratory experiment received flow payoffs over 120 seconds each period from a standard Hawk-Dove bimatrix game played in continuous time. Play converged closely to the symmetric mixed Nash equilibrium under a one-population matching protocol. When the same players were matched in a two-population protocol with the same bimatrix, they showed clear movement towards an asymmetric (and very inequitable) pure Nash equilibrium of the game. These findings support distinctive predictions of evolutionary game theory
From imitation to collusion long-run learning in a low-information environment( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study long-run learning in an experimental Cournot game with no explicit information about the payoff function. Subjects see only the quantities and payoffs of each oligopolist after every period. In line with theoretical predictions and previous experimental findings, duopolies and triopolies both reach highly competitive levels, with price approaching marginal cost within 50 periods. Using the new ConG software, we extend the horizon to 1,200 periods, far beyond that previously investigated. Already after 100 periods we observe a qualitative change in behavior, and quantity choices start to drop. Without pausing at the Cournot-Nash level quantities continue to drop, eventually reaching almost fully collusive levels in duopolies and often reaching deep into collusive territory for triopolies. Fitted models of individual adjustment suggest that subjects switch from imitation of the most profitable rival to other behavior that, intentionally or otherwise, facilitates collusion via effective punishment and forgiveness. Remarkably, subjects never learn the best-reply correspondence of the one-shot game. Our results suggest a new explanation for the emergence of cooperation. -- Cournot oligopoly ; imitation ; learning dynamics ; cooperation

New GaInP/GaAs/GaInAs, Triple-Bandgap, Tandem Solar Cell for High-Efficiency Terrestrial Concentrator Systems( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

GaInP/GaAs/GaInAs three-junction cells are grown in an inverted configuration on GaAs, allowing high quality growth of the lattice matched GaInP and GaAs layers before a grade is used for the 1-eV GaInAs layer. Using this approach an efficiency of 37.9% was demonstrated
Understanding the Potential and Limitations of Dilute Nitride Alloys for Solar Cells( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dilute nitride alloys provide a powerful tool for engineering the band gap and lattice constant of III-V alloys. However, nitrogen degrades the performance of GaAs solar cells. This project seeks to understand and demonstrate the limits of performance of GaInNAs alloys by (a) correlating deep-level transient spectroscopy (DLTS) data with device performance and (b) using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) to reduce background impurity concentrations
