The Core and Competitive Equilibria

  • Werner Hildenbrand
Part of the Lecture Notes in Operations Research and Mathematical Economics book series (LNE, volume 11/12)


There is at least a formal connection between Control Theory and Mathematical Economics. Some recent important results in equilibrium analysis of perfectly competitive economies (i.e., economies with an atomless measure space of economic agents) are based on mathematical theorems which are equally basic mathematical tools in Control Theory.
