The development of efficient algorithms for the numerical computation of equilibria is a topic as important as the qualitative analysis of equilibria. Indeed, the complexity of economic problems, coupled with their increasing scale, precludes their resolution via closed form analytics. Further, the growing influence of policy modeling is stimulating the construction of frameworks for the accessible evaluation of alternatives.
