Role of occupied d bands in the dynamics of excited electrons and holes in Ag
(American Physical Society, 2003)
The role that occupied d bands play in the inelastic lifetime of bulk and surface states in Ag is investigated from the knowledge of the quasiparticle self-energy. In the case of bulk electrons, sp bands are taken to be ...

An Approach to the stability of international environmental agreements: the absorbing sets solution
We study international environmental negotiations when agreements between countries can not be binding. A problem with this kind of negotiations is that countries have incentives for free-riding from such agreements. We ...
Profit and Cost in "Modern" Post-Marxian Profit Theory: A Case Study from Varian's "Intermediate Microeconomics"
In this paper, I examine the treatment of competitive profit of professor Varian in his textbook on Microeconomics, as a representative of the “modern” post-Marxian view on competitive profit. I show how, on the one hand, ...

A Fundamental Contradiction in Keynes' Conception of Income
I contend that Keynes provides two contradictory definitions of aggregate income. According to the first definition, which is the dominant in Keynes as well as the standard in current Macroeconomics, the full value of ...
Fishing effort validation and substitution possibilities among components: the case study of the VIII division European anchovy fishery
(Routledge. Taylor & Francis, 2003)
Command and control regulation programs, particularly input constraints, typically fail to achieve stated objectives, because fishermen may substitute unregulated for regulated inputs. It is, thus, essential to have an ...
International and Intergenerational Dimensions of Climate Change: North-South Cooperation in an Overlapping Generations Framework
Global environmental problems such as climate change have both an international and an intertemporal dimension. Recently, some papers have used an overlapping generations framework to analyze the climate change problem ...
A Model of Evolutionay Drift
Drift appears to be crucial to study the stability properties of Nash equilibria in a component specifying different out-of-equilibrium behaviour. We propose a new microeconomic model of drift to be added to the learning ...
