Consumer Optimization Problem Solving

What algorithms are tractable depends upon the rate of the processor. Given the rate of electronic desktops, polynomial algorithms are thought of tractable. yet, a human can take numerous seconds to make one binary comparability among pens. Given this gradual velocity, sublinear algorithms are thought of tractable for an unaided human and this defines Simon's idea of bounded rationality.

Curiously, neither of these classes of results has been exploited - thus far. The analysis of election statistics to reveal political and economic aspects of fluctuations was a virgin territory when Tingsten published his studies in the heyday of business-cycle theories: 1937 (Tingsten, 1937). After the early speculative theoretical works by Kalecki and Akerman in the 1940s the field remained fallow, so to speak, till the age of stagflation in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The work till the early years of this decade has been expertly surveyed, summarised and extended in the monograph by Borooah and van der Ploeg (1983).

In Chapter 1 there is a sketch of the story behind the so-called 'Goodwin oscillator' (cf. Velupillai, 1990, for the romance of the story); no wonder, then, that the Rossler system appeals so much to the ever-fertile mind of a supreme theorist of cycles looking eternally for the simplest hypotheses to describe events at the phenomenological level. However, events have even overtaken this artist: we now know that not only are there limit points, limit cycles and strange attractors but that there is a fourth class - a class capable of universal computation; a class lying delicately balanced between the limit cycles of Poincare and the 'chaotic' attractors of Birkhoff.
