Nonparametric cost and revenue functions under constant economies of scale: A simplification for the single output or input case
This note shows how the linear programs needed to compute cost and revenue functions under constant returns to scale and a single output or input, respectively, can be replaced with a more efficient enumeration algorithm. An empirical illustration shows the gain in computer time one can obtain.
