The End of Theory

A mathematician entering the world of economics begins with a set of axioms.

assumptions that is necessary to take an axiomatic approach—is that people

An in-depth look at how to account for the human complexities at the heart of today’s financial system Our economy may have recovered from the Great Recession—but not our economics. The End of Theory discusses why the human condition and the radical uncertainty of our world renders the standard economic model—and the theory behind it—useless for dealing with financial crises. What model should replace it? None. At least not any version we’ve been using for the past two hundred years. Richard Bookstaber argues for a new approach called agent-based economics, one that takes as a starting point the fact that we are humans, not the optimizing automatons that standard economics assumes we are. Sweeping aside the historic failure of twentieth-century economics, The End of Theory offers a novel perspective and more realistic framework to help prevent today's financial system from blowing up again.

One of the first detailed expositions of partial algebras, this book develops a special theory of partial algebras as a powerful foundation of a model theoretic, initial semantics of algebraic specification languages. Professor Reichel explores the possibility of increasing the use of partial algebras, particularly in computer science. He presents examples of algebraic specifications of increasing complexity and proves that structural induction can yield a complete calculus of abstract programs on parameterized abstract data types. Finally, he extends the model-theoretic initial semantics of abstract data types with partial operations to behavioral semantics.
