Abstract

This is a book on nonlinear analysis and its underlying motivations in economic science and game theory. It is entitled Optima and Equilibria since, in the final analysis, response to these motivations consists of perfecting mechanisms for selecting an element from a given set. Such selection mechanisms may involve either
  • optimisation of a criterion function defined on this set (or of several functions, in the case of multi-criterion problems in game theory), or

  • searching in this set for an equilibrium of a given undelying dynamical system, which is a stationary solution of this dynmical system.
