Nonlinear functional analysis and optimal economic growth
AbstractA problem of existence and characterization of solutions of optimal growth models in many sector economies is studied The social utility to be optimized is a generalized form of a preference depending additively on consumption at the different dates of the planning period. The optimization b rattrirted to a set of admissible growth paths defined by production-investment-consumption relations described by a system of differential equations. Sufficient conditions are given for existence of a solution in a Hilbert space of paths, without convexity assumptions on either the utilities of the technology, using techniques of nonlinear functional analysis. A characterization is given of the utilities which re continuous with respect to the Hilbert space norm. Under convexity assumptions a characteristic is also given of optimal and efficient solutions by competitive prices.
