About this Item

Entire issue offered. Pp. 111-275; ads. Original wrappers. Very Good. 'In 1961, Simon and Ando wrote a classical paper describing the convergence properties of nearly completely decomposable matrices' (D. J. Hartfiel, 'Proof of the Simon-Ando Theorem', Proceedings of the the American Mathematical Society, V. 124, No. 1, January 1996, first sentence). 'In this paper, we investigate fitness landscapes (under point mutation and recombination) from the standpoint of whether the induced evolutionary dynamics have a 'fast-slow' time scale associated with the differences in relaxation time between local quasi-equilibria and the global equilibrium. This dynamical behavior has been formally described in the econometrics literature in terms of the spectral properties of the appropriate operator matrices by Simon and Ando (1961)' (Max Shpak, Peter Stadler, Gunter P.Wagner, and Lee Altenberg, 'Simon-Ando Decomposability and Fitness Landscapes', Theory in Biosciences 123: 139-180, abstract). Herbert Simon: Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, 1978, 'for his pioneering research into the decision-making process within economic organizations.' This issue also includes: FISHER, Franklin M., 'On the Cost of Approximate Specification in Simultaneous Equation Estimation' (139-170). Fisher's page on the MIT Web site notes this paper was reprinted 'in Essays on the Structure of Social Science Models [Ando, Fisher & Simon, 1963] and elsewhere.' Pp. 186-202 = SUPPES, P[atrick]., 'Behavioristic Foundations of Utility.' 'I drew upon my interest in learning theory to try to create a behavioristic foundation for utility theory (1961a)' (Suppes' Autiobiography on the Stanford Web site). Bookseller Inventory # 15939
