On the Computational Complexities of Various Geography Variants [article]

Nathan Fox, Carson Geissler
2021 arXiv   pre-print
It is well known that the computational complexity of determining which player should win from a given position of Generalized Geography is PSPACE-complete.  ...  We introduce several rule variants to Generalized Geography, and we explore the computational complexity of determining the winner of positions of many resulting games.  ...  In this paper, we are concerned with the computational complexity of a given game.  ...

Existence and computation of short-run equilibria in economic geography

N.G. Pavlidis, M.N. Vrahatis, P. Mossay
2007 Applied Mathematics and Computation  
Finally, the computation of the topological degree to identify the number of equilibria also has a very high computational cost.  ...  The new economic geography literature provides a general equilibrium framework that explains the emergence of economic agglomerations as a trade-off between increasing returns at the firm level and transportation  ...  Hence, the computation of the number of short-run equilibria of the economic geography model through the computation of the topological degree of the function G N is a computationally hard task, as suggested  ...
