This seminar was given 26 February 2009 as part of the PhD seminar series organised by the School of Economics and Finance of the University of St Andrews. Dr Pierre Cartigny, Director of the Joint Research Unit for Systems Analysis and Biometrics at INRA in Montpellier (France), addresses dynamical systems, stability, optimal control and differential games and their applications in Economics and Biology, in resource extraction in particular. Four videos are available in WMV format and last 30-60 minutes each. Six handouts of lecture slides are available in PDF.
Video and Audio Lectures in Advanced Econometrics and Quantitative Techniques
From a Summer Institute mini-course run by the National Bureau of Economic Research in 2007, this is a set of resources from each of 15 lectures, including video (usually 1hr long and hosted on Google Video) as well as handouts and slides. This link goes to Economics Network's index of these materials.
This set of talks was given on 8 January 2009 as part of the PhD seminar series organised by the School of Economics and Finance of the University of St Andrews. Prof. Thomas Lux speaks on how economic systems can be seen as evolutionary models, where agents interact with each other and a selection process favours the most successful. He introduces underlying dynamical systems as well as the necessary game theoretic concepts. Video can be downloaded in WMV format and presentation slides / handouts are also available.
