## Visualizing The Effects Of Parameter Perturbations In Models Of Joint Production

A Temporal Path I have a new working paper. Abstract: This article illustrates the analysis of prices of production with joint production by a numerical example. The example is used to illustrate the applicability of techniques to identify and visualize qualitative changes in the choice of technique with parameter perturbations. Patterns of switch points are knife-edge or fluke cases in which any perturbation of parameters results in such a qualitative change. This article identifies a new...

## Fluke Switch Points At Both The Maximum Wage And The Maximum Rate Of Profits

Figure 1: Wage Frontier for a Fixed Capital Example1.0 Introduction I continue to explore the simplest multisector model of the production of commodities by means of commodities in which circulating and fixed capital is used in both sectors. In previous explorations, I locate a four-technique pattern, observe recurrence of truncation, and provide an example in which truncating all machines is infeasible. I think my taxonomy of fluke switch points and methods of visualizing the effects of...

## Infeasibility Of All Machines Truncated

Figure 1: Factor Wage Curves For Feasible Techniques There are 12 coefficients that can be varied in my minimum multisector model in which production in all sectors can require both fixed and circulating capital. I do not think I am being very orderly in exploring this twelve-dimensional space. This is a fluke case in which the maximum rate of profits is zero for both the Alpha and the Beta techniques. If only new machines are used as means of production in producing new machines and in...

## Recurrence Of Truncation In A Perturbation Analysis

Figure 1: Variation of Choice Of Technique with a Coefficient of Production This post continues the analysis of this example. The coefficients of production and the techniques are the same as in the linked post, except here I consider the results of varying a1, 2, the amount of corn needed as circulating capital in operating Process II at unit level. Figure 1 above shows how the choice of technique varies with this parameter. This is a two-sector model, in which new machines and corn are...

## A Four-Technique Pattern In A Model With Fixed Capital

Figure 1: A Wage Frontier1.0 Introduction This post presents a numberic example of a non-interlocked system with fixed capital and no superimposed joint production. This seems to be the minimum multiple-sector model: Of the production of commodities by means of comodities With both circulating and fixed capital, In which the fixed capital consists of machines of non-constant efficiency with a physical lifetime of more than one period. This is a step in my research agenda of exploring...

## A Fluke Case For Requirements For Use

Figure 1: Prices of Production1.0 Introduction This post presents a new kind of fluke case in the analysis of the choice of technique, at least new to me. I call this a pattern for requirements for use, and it can arise only in a case of joint production. My graphs in this post have some incomprehensible notation, since I am currently exploring perturbing parameters, in line with my research agenda. I know that perturbing the requirements for use removes the indeterminancy in this example....

## A Fixed Capital System That Is Or Is Not Interlocked

I have defined patterns of switch points in considering perturbations of examples of the choice of technique. For example, I have defined three-technique and four-technique patterns. An obvious extension is to consider how these patterns arise in models of joint production. A simplification is to only consider models of fixed capital without superimposed joint production. This post lays out an example in which, maybe, some parameter values can lead to a three-technique pattern. I am...

## More On A Fixed Capital Example

Figure 1: A Partition of a Parameter Space for the Schefold Example1.0 Introduction I want to revisit a perturbation analysis of an example, from Bertram Schefold, of reswitching with fixed capital. Suppose workers use a machine to produce something or other, where the machine lasts several production periods. It is a possible choice to run the machine for less than its full physical life. One might think than choosing to adopt a technique with a longer economic life of the machine...
