Iteration, Tâtonnement, Computation and Economic Dynamics

  • K. Vela Velupillai
Registered author(s):

    An attempt is made, in this paper, to extract a mathematical methodology, underpinned by numerical meaning, from a study of Richard Goodwin’s classic contributions from 1943 to 1967 -- and beyond. The key conceptual notions I use are tâtonnement, computation, approximations, the geometry of dynamics, simulations and iteration.
