Seminario 17/08: Michel Théra (U. Limoges) – Perturbation of error bounds

bounds

Abstract In the current presentation, I intend to extend the developments in Kruger, Ngai  & Théra, SIAM J. Optim. 20(6), 3280-3296 (2010) and, more precisely, to characterize, in the Banach space setting, the stability of the local and global error bound property of inequalities determined by proper lower semicontinuous under data perturbations. I will propose…

Seminario 17/07: Mª José Gutierrez (U. País Vasco) – Harvesting Control Rules that deal with Scientific Uncertainty

uncertainty

Abstract: By using robustness methods we design HCRs that explicitly include scientific uncertainty. Under scientific uncertainty –when the perceived model can be generated by a nearby operating model– robust HCRs are designed assuming that the (inferred) operating model is more persistent than the perceived model. As a result, a robust HCR has a steeper ratio…

Seminario 17/06: – Carlos Escudero (U. Autónoma de Madrid) – Sobre negociar con información privilegiada y ecuaciones diferenciales estocásticas

inversion2-450×290

Abstract Un problema clásico en el campo de la matemática financiera es el encontrar carteras de inversiones óptimas en el caso de que varias inversiones sean posibles. Si el inversor tiene información privilegiada, al menos dos cosas mejoran. La primera, obviamente, sus probabilidades de obtener beneficio. La segunda, el perfil de las matemáticas necesarias para…

Seminario 17/05: – Luís C. Corchón (U. Carlos III)- Oligopolistic Equilibrium and Financial Constraints

duopoly

Abstract We provide a model of dynamic duopoly in which firms take into account the financial constraints of all firms. The study of the equilibria of our dynamic game leads to the concept of Bankruptcy-Free outputs (BF) in which no firm can drive another firm to bankruptcy without becoming bankrupt itself. We show that, in…

Seminario 17/03: – Asier Minondo Uribe-Etxeberria (U. Deusto) – The contribution of fundamental and granular comparative advantage to export specialization

mba-export-management-training

Abstract: Neoclassical models of international trade do not grant firms any role in shaping countries’ export specialization. However, the evidence shows that in many countries few firms dominate sectoral exports. In this paper we propose an easy-to-implement methodology to determine the contribution of country-level variables, fundamental comparative advantage, and firm-level variables, granular comparative advantage, to…

Seminario 17/02: – Guiomar Martín-Herrán (U. Valladolid) – Retailer and Manufacturer Advertising Scheduling in a Marketing Channel

Marketing-and-Advertising

Abstract: Despite the fact that the use of sporadic advertising schedules is well established in both the advertising literature and market place, the marketing channel literature that focuses on vertical interactions has consistently prescribed continuous advertising strategies over time. This paper investigates, in a bilateral monopoly context a situation in which a manufacturer and a…

Seminario 17/01: – Jose G. Clavel (U. Murcia)- Total Information Analysis: Representation of Categorical Data Through Clusters

clusters

Abstract: Due to the presence of duality, cluster analysis has been proposed to analyze Total Information Analysis super distance matrix instead of a row-column joint graph. But the same duality causes that the traditional methods of clustering are not always capable to produce meaningful results. In this paper following Nishisato (2014), the clustering with p-percentile…

Seminario 16/18: – Coralio Ballester (Universidad de Alicante) – Convergence in network guessing games

network

Abstract: En este trabajo analizamos un conjunto de “concursos de belleza” (“Beauty Contests”- Nagel, AER 1995) jugados en el contexto de redes económicas/sociales. Los Beauty Contests han sido utilizados en campos como las finanzas y en el estudio de la racionalidad limitada de los agentes económicos. En concreto, fue uno de los primeros juegos en…

Seminario 16/17: Pedro Marques (Instituto Ingenio, CSIC-UPV) -The six presumptions of smart specialisation

specialization2

Abstract: For the funding period of 2014-2020, the European Union demanded from all regions or countries the design of a ‘smart specialisation’ strategy. One of the main goals of this strategy was to shift cohesion fund spending away from infrastructure and to encourage policies that stimulate innovation and increase business competitiveness. A second major goal…

Seminario 16/16: – Lucia Pozzi (Università di Sassari) – Transición sanitaria, desigualdades en salud y enfermedades de la pobreza en la isla de Cerdeña (siglos XIX-XX)

salud_cerdena

Abstract: El objetivo del seminario es analizar las condiciones de salud en la isla de Cerdeña entre la Unificación italiana y la década de 1920 y documentar la extrema pobreza que afectaba a una parte importante de su población. En este periodo se acentuaron las diferencias de la isla con el resto del país, lo…
