  • Post-Faustmann Forest Resource Economicsby Shashi Kant

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The current paradigm of forest economics is based on Faustmann Formulation (FF) of land expectation value proposed by Martin Faustmann. It was a great achievement by a forester to propose a formulation that captures some fundamental economic features of capital theory which. However, the followers of the FF approach have trapped themselves into the... more...

  • Topics in Nonconvex Optimizationby Shashi Kant Mishra

    Springer 2011; US$ 169.00

    Nonconvex Optimization is a multi-disciplinary research field that deals with the characterization and computation of local/global minima/maxima of nonlinear, nonconvex, nonsmooth, discrete and continuous functions. Nonconvex optimization problems are frequently encountered in modeling real world systems for a very broad range of applications including... more...

  • Economics, Sustainability, and Natural Resourcesby Shashi Kant; R. Albert Berry

    Springer 2006; US$ 249.00

    Forest resources are the ideal starting point for the economic analysis of sustainability. This book provides a critique of neoclassical economic approaches and their limitations with respect to sustainability. It discusses key economic aspects of sustainable forest management, including complexity, ethical issues, non-convexities, and more. more...

  • Institutions, Sustainability, and Natural Resourcesby Shashi Kant; R. Albert Berry

    Springer 2006; US$ 269.00

    Provides a critique of neoclassical economic approaches and their limitations with respect to sustainability. This book discusses theoretical perspectives about appropriate institutions for sustainable forest management, markets for environmental services, deforestation and specialization, the Kyoto Protocol, and international trade. more...

  • Invexity and Optimizationby Shashi Kant Mishra; Giorgio Giorgi

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    Invexity and Optimization presents results on invex function and their properties in smooth and nonsmooth cases, pseudolinearity and eta-pseudolinearity. Results on optimality and duality for a nonlinear scalar programming problem are presented, second and higher order duality results are given for a nonlinear scalar programming problem, and saddle... more...

  • Handbook of Forest Resource Economicsby Shashi Kant; Janaki Alavalapati

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 220.00

    It is increasingly recognized that the economic value of forests is not merely the production of timber. Forests provide other key ecosystem services, such as being sinks for greenhouse gases, hotspots of biodiversity, tourism and recreation. They are also vitally important in preventing soil erosion and controlling water supplies, as well as providing... more...

  • V-Invex Functions and Vector Optimizationby Shashi Kant Mishra; Shouyang Wang; Kin Keung Lai

    Springer 2007; US$ 149.00

    V-INVEX FUNCTIONS AND VECTOR OPTIMIZATION summarizes and synthesizes an aspect of research work that has been done in the area of Generalized Convexity over the past several decades. Specifically, the book focuses on V-invex functions in vector optimization that have grown out of the work of Jeyakumar and Mond in the 1990?s. V-invex functions are areas... more...

  • Pseudolinear Functions and Optimizationby Shashi Kant Mishra; Balendu Bhooshan Upadhyay

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    Pseudolinear Functions and Optimization is the first book to focus exclusively on pseudolinear functions, a class of generalized convex functions. It discusses the properties, characterizations, and applications of pseudolinear functions in nonlinear optimization problems. The book describes the characterizations of solution sets of various... more...

  • Generalized Convexity and Vector Optimizationby Shashi Kant Mishra; Shou Yang Wang; Kin Keung Lai

    Springer 2008; US$ 189.00

    Discusses the Kuhn-Tucker Optimality, Karush-Kuhn-Tucker Necessary and Sufficient Optimality Conditions in presence of various types of generalized convexity assumptions. This book also discusses Wolfe-type Duality, Mond-Weir type Duality, and Mixed type Duality for Multiobjective optimization problems such as Nonlinear programming problems. more...
