#### Can Markets Compute Equilibria?

International Monetary Fund 2009; US$ 9.00Recent turmoil in financial and commodities markets has renewed questions regarding how well markets discover equilibrium prices, particularly when those markets are highly complex. A relatively new critique questions whether markets can realistically find equilibrium prices if computers cannot. For instance, in a simple exchange economy with Leontief... more...

#### Constructivity and Computability in Historical and Philosophical Perspective

Springer Netherlands 2014; US$ 129.00Ranging from Alan Turing?s seminal 1936 paper to the latest work on Kolmogorov complexity and linear logic, this comprehensive new work clarifies the relationship between computability on the one hand and constructivity on the other. The authors argue that even though constructivists have largely shed Brouwer?s solipsistic attitude to logic, there... more...

#### Causality: Philosophical Theory meets Scientific Practice

Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99Head hits cause brain damage - but not always. Should we ban sport to protect athletes? Exposure to electromagnetic fields is strongly associated with cancer development - does that mean exposure causes cancer? Should we encourage old fashioned communication instead of mobile phones to reduce cancer rates? According to popular wisdom, the Mediterranean... more...
