    • Lower and upper bounds for linear production 

      Bjørndal, Endre; Jörnsten, Kurt (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2002-11)
      We study a model of a production economy in which every set of agents owns a set of resources, and where they all have access to the same technology. The agents can cooperate by pooling their resources, and the total profit ...

      Atreya, Nikhil; Mjøs, Aksel; Persson, Svein-Arne (Discussion paper;33/15, Working paper, 2015-11-27)
      We create a structural credit model to calculate the optimal capital structure for a bank that provides asset backed loans, such as corporate loans and mortgages. The bank's assets are loans, which means that the bank's ...

    • Malmquist Productivity Analysis based on StoNED 

      Cheng, Xiaomei; Bjørndal, Endre; Bjørndal, Mette (Discussion paper;25/15, Working paper, 2015-09-24)
      We construct a Malmquist productivity index based on stochastic non-parametric envelopment of data (StoNED) method, and we study how the distributional assumptions in the second StoNED stage affect productivity change ...
    • Management of Knowledge Workers 

      Hvide, Hans K.; Kristiansen, Eirik Gaard (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2006-06)
      We study how complementarities and intellectual property rights affect the management of knowledge workers. The main results relay when a firm will wish to sue workers that leave with innovative ideas, and the effects of ...
    • Managing Flexible Load Contracts: Two simple strategies 

      Bjerksund, Petter; Myksvoll, Bjarte; Stensland, Gunnar (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2006-11)
      A flexible load contract is a type of swing option where the holder has the right to receive a given quantity of electricity within a specified period, at a fixed maximum effect (delivery rate). The contract is flexible, ...
    • Market integration for natural gas in Europe 

      Asche, Frank; Osmundsen, Petter; Tveterås, Ragnar (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2000-09)
      In this paper we examine the degree of market integration in French gas imports. Are there substantial price differences between gas from different export countries, and do prices move together? Furthermore, we analyze to ...
    • Market power in a power market with transmission constraints 

      Bjørndal, Mette; Gribkovskaia, Victoria; Jörnsten, Kurt (Discussion papers;29/14, Working paper, 2014-06)
      In this paper we present a model for analysing the strategic behaviour of a generator and its short run implications on an electricity network with transmission constraints. The problem is formulated as a Stackelberg ...
    • Market Power Under Nodal and Zonal Congestion Management Techniques 

      Bjørndal, Endre; Bjørndal, Mette; Rud, Linda; Rahimi Alangi, Somayeh (Discussion paper;14/17, Working paper, 2017-11-07)
      Contrary to the common thought that nodal pricing provides more opportunities for a strategic player to exert market power than the zonal model, we show that in the latter one because of the need for re-dispatch or ...

      Kvamsdal, Sturla Furunes; Stohs, Stephen M. (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2010-09)
      An economic activity interacts with an endangered species. The activity can be divided into mutually exclusive strata with different levels of inter- action. Observing the activity in order to monitor interactions is ...
    • Markets do not select for a liquidity preference as behavior towards risk 

      Hens, Thorsten; Schenk-Hoppé, Klaus Reiner (Discussion paper, Working paper, 2003-10)
      Tobin (1958) has argued that in the face of potential capital losses on bonds it is reasonable to hold cash as a means to transfer wealth over time. It is shown that this assertion cannot be sustained taking into account ...
    • Markets With Memory: Dynamic Channel Optimization Models With Price-Dependent Stochastic Demand 

      Azad Gholami, Reza; Sandal, Leif K.; Ubøe, Jan (Discussion paper;8/19, Working paper, 2019-09-09)
      Almost every vendor faces uncertain and time-varying demand. Inventory level and price optimization while catering to stochastic demand are conventionally formulated as variants of newsvendor problem. Despite its ubiquity ...
