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


In an earlier paper+) we have argued that a solution of the inverse optimal problem for deterministic growth paths may have interesting economic applications. The inverse optimal problem is the one in which one tries to infer from a given savings function what class of utility functions could give rise to the given savings function as an optimal solution of a specialized optimization problem.
