Dynamic Programming of Economic Decisions

Dynamic Programming is the research of multistage determination within the sequential mode. it truly is now widely known as a device of significant versatility and gear, and is utilized to an expanding volume in all levels of financial research, operations study, know-how, and likewise in mathematical idea itself. In economics and operations study its influence may well sometime rival that of linear programming.

THE CLASSICAL LINEAR REGRESSION MODEL 38 so Mι εˆ = εˆ . In this case y Mι y = βˆ X Mι X βˆ + εˆ εˆ So R2c = RSS T SS where RSS = βˆ X Mι X βˆ • Supposing that a column of ones is in the space spanned by X (PX ι = ι), then one can show that 0 ≤ R2c ≤ 1. 6. The classical linear regression model Up to this point the model is empty of content beyond the definition of a best linear approximation to y and some geometrical properties. There is no economic content to the model, and the regression parameters have no economic interpretation.

Since it’s a linear combination of the observations on the dependent variable, where the weights are detemined by the observations on the regressors, some observations may have more influence than others. 4. INFLUENTIAL OBSERVATIONS AND OUTLIERS 34 ht is the tth element on the main diagonal of PX ( et is a n vector of zeros with a 1 in the tth position). So 0 < ht < 1, and TrPX = K ⇒ h = K/n. So, on average, the weight on the yt ’s is K/n. If the weight is much higher, then the observation has the potential to affect the fit importantly.

In this case, the variables Z are said to be exogenous for estimation of θ, and we may more conveniently work with the conditional likelihood function fY |Z (Y |Z, θ) for the purposes of estimating θ0 . 1. The maximum likelihood estimator of θ0 = arg max fY |Z (Y |Z, θ) • If the n observations are independent, the likelihood function can be written as n L(Y |Z, θ) = ∏ f (yt |zt , θ) t=1 where the ft are possibly of different form. • If this is not possible, we can always factor the likelihood into contributions of observations, by using the fact that a joint density can be factored into the product of a marginal and conditional (doing this iteratively) L(Y, θ) = f (y1 |z1 , θ) f (y2 |y1 , z2 , θ) f (y3 |y1 , y2 , z3 , θ) · · · f (yn |y1, y2 , .
