      Basberg, Bjørn L.; Headland, Robert K. (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2008-09)
      Sealing was the first exploitative industry in the Antarctic region. Throughout the 19th century it was characterized by large fluctuations in harvests and shifts in hunting grounds as seals were almost exterminated in ...

    • A behaviour-based approach to the estimation of poverty in India 

      Almås, Ingvild; Kjelsrud, Anders Grøn; Somanathan, Rohini (Discussion paper;2/2013, Working paper, 2013-01)
      Since the late 1970s, the price indices underlying the poverty lines in India have been updated using aggregate indices. Widespread criticism of these indices led to the adoption of a new o cial methodology in 2011 based ...
    • A Bellman approach to periodic optimization problems 

      Kvamsdal, Sturla F.; Maroto, José M.; Morán, Manuel; Sandal, Leif K. (Discussion paper;19/16, Working paper, 2016-11-30)
      We consider an infinite horizon optimization problem with arbitrary but finite periodicity in discrete time. The problem can be formulated as a fix-point problem for a contraction operator, and we provide a solution scheme ...
    • A bioeconomic analysis of an age-structured fish stock continuous in time and age 

      Steinshamn, Stein Ivar; Golubtsov, Peter (Working paper;2014:15, Working paper, 2015-03)
      An age-structured bioeconomic model, that is completely continuous in state and time, is developed. To make the model more realistic, a nonlinear recruitment function is introduced and steady state solutions are studied ...
    • A bridge between continuous and discrete-time bioeconomic models: Seasonality in fisheries 

      Kvamsdal, Sturla F.; Maroto, José M.; Morán, Manuel; Sandal, Leif K. (Discussion paper;20/16, Working paper, 2016-11-30)
      We develop a discretization method for continuous-time bioeconomic models. Based on this method, we develop a discrete-time bioeconomic model to analyze seasonality in fisheries. The discretization method consists of three ...
    • A carbon footprint proportional to expenditure : a case for Norway? 

      Narbel, Patrick A.; Isaksen, Elisabeth T. (Discussion paper;16/14, Working paper, 2014-04)
      Assuming that emissions originate from the consumption of goods and services, we study the relationship between consumption-based per capita carbon footprint and per capita expenditure for Norway, using 2007 data. A ...
    • A comparison of the big four professional service firms 

      Gustavsen, Ingeborg Louise; Zimmer, Mathias Hove (Arbeidsnotat;2018/8, Working paper, 2018-08)
    • A continuous consumer price index for Norway 1492-2017 

      Grytten, Ola Honningdal (DP SAM;26/2018, Working paper, 2018-11)
      This manuscript presents a new combined annual cost of living and consumer price index for Norway covering the period 1492-2017. When previous Norwegian historical consumer price indices partly were constructed on the basis ...
    • A contraction approach to periodic optimization problems 

      Sandal, Leif K.; Kvamsdal, Sturla F.; Maroto, José M.; Morán, Manuel (Working paper, 2017-11)
      Consider an infinite horizon, multi-dimensional optimization problem with arbitrary but finite periodicity in discrete time. The problem can be posed as a set of coupled equations. We show that the problem is a special ...
    • A Corporate-Crime Perspective on Fisheries: Liability Rules and Non-Compliance 

      Jensen, Frank; Nøstbakken, Linda (Discussion paper;20/15, Working paper, 2015-08)
      The existing fisheries economics literature analyzes compliance problems by treating the fishing firm as one cohesive unit, but in many cases, violations are committed by agents acting on behalf of a firm. To account for ...

    • A likelihood ratio and Markov Chain based method to evaluate density forecasting 

      Li, Yushu; Andersson, Jonas (Discussion paper;12/14, Working paper, 2014-03)
      In this paper, we propose a likelihood ratio and Markov chain based method to evaluate density forecasting. This method can jointly evaluate the unconditional forecasted distribution and dependence of the outcomes. This ...
    • A maximum entropy approach to the newsvendor problem with partial information
