Both roots being negative, u0 Eu is negative definite. Since r1 is positive, but r2 is negative, u0 F u is indefinite. Using r1 in The diagonal elements are all negative for problem 2, and all positive for problems 4 and 5. Thus the characteristic roots are all negative d2 z negative definite for problem 2, and all positive d2 z positive definite for problem 4.

Thus the maximum in this problem is a unique absolute maximum. The highest 1 is cd1 ; the lowest is cd2. Letting Pa0 alone vary i. In Thus, those elements are really the second-order partial derivatives of the primitive objective function — exactly what are used to construct the Hessian determinant.

Then it follows that d2 g must be zero, too. Thus d2 z does not have to be zero as a matter of course. The zero can be made the last instead of the first element in the principal diagonal, with g1 , g2 and g3 in that order appearing in the last column and in the last row. Both f x and g x are monotonic, and thus quasiconcave. The function is neither quasiconcave nor quasiconvex.

In the x1 x2 plane, this plots for each value of k as a log curve shifted upward vertically by the amount of k. Thus the function is quasiconvex. Then, by Hence the function is quasiconvex by Hence utility is maximized. Utility is maximized. These check with the preceding problem.

These answers check with the preceding problem. The statement is not valid. From Yes, they are true: 4. The elasticity of substitution is merely the elasticity of this line, which can be read by the method of Fig. On the basis of The isoquants would be downward- sloping straight lines. Consequently, the summation expression can be zero if and only if every component term is zero. This is why the one-equation condition is equivalent to the m separate conditions taken together as a set.

The expanded version of No qualifying arc can be found for this vector. The constraint border is a circle with a radius of 1, and with its center at 0, 0. The optimal solution is at 1, 0. By Thus the test vectors can only point towards due north, northwest, or due west.

There does exist a qualifying arc for each such vector. The optimal solution is at the point of origin, a cusp. Moreover, Thus the test vectors must be horizontal, and pointing eastward except for the null vector which does not point anywhere. Qualifying arcs clearly do exist for each such vector. The curve refers to the graph of the integrand f x.

None is improper. I1 and I2 cannot cancel each other out. Capital alone is considered. Since the production process obviously requires the labor factor as well, the equation above implies that labor and capital are combined in a fixed proportion, for only then can we consider capital alone to the exclusion of labor. This also seems to carry the implication of a perfectly elastic supply of labor. The second equation in The D curve should be steeper then the S curve.
