    Chapter 7 Notes

    Cornell, ECON 1110

    Excerpt: ... Chapter 7 Notes Welfare economics- the study of how allocation of resources affects well-being Willingness to pay- max amount one would pay- ambivalent about purchase if it occurs at this price Consumer surplus- amount one is willing to pay for a good minus what he actually pays Measured by area below the demand curve and above the price Good measure of economic behavior only when policy makers want to respect the preferences of buyers Marginal buyer- buyer that would leave the market if the price rose at all Vs marginal seller- would leave if market price dropped Producer surplus- amount a seller is paid minus the cost to provide it Measured by area beneath price and above supply curve Total Surplus= Value to buyers Cost to sellers = willingness to buy willingness to sell Area between demand and supply curve up to equilibrium point Efficiency- the property of resource allocation of maximizing the total surplus received by all members of society Equity- the fairness of the distribution of well-being among ...

    UCSB, CS 595

    Excerpt: ... In this seminar, we will focus on market-based methodologies, both for distributed resource allocation and Internet-based commerce. These applications involve self-interested agents, and thus economic and game theoretic issues play an important role. The problem can be viewed as a game of incomplete information: consumers' and sellers' utility of the resource is private information, still as a system designer we would like to achieve an optimal resource allocation . In the seminar, we will read papers from the literature on various market formulations and their realizations in different settings. In particular, we will study the algorithmic properties of combinatorial auctions and commodity markets, and review the results of their application. Each student will be expected to present one paper. The class will meet Wednesdays in Trailer 932 (the digital classroom) from 3:00 PM until 5:00 PM. ...

    Excerpt: ... gorithm runs more quickly than the first. Why? Therefore, the second algorithm can be executed whenever p requests an unavailable resource unit. However, it may still be worthwhile to execute the first algorithm "occasionally." Systems with only reusable resources: We will establish that a state is deadlock-free by reducing its resource allocation graph. Note that it does not matter what node(s) we reduce first. Either - the graph is completely reducible, or the same irreducible subgraph will be left after the graph has been reduced as much as possible. This follows from the fact that a reduction never decreases the available inventory of a resource. (This is true iff the graph contains only reusable resources.) So if the graph is reducible by, say pi first, and then pj, it could also be reduced by pj and then by pi. Assume that the state S of the system is not deadlocked. 1998 Edward F. Gehringer CSC/ECE 501 Lecture Notes Page 120 Then no process in the system is deadlocked. Thus any sequence o ...

    Excerpt: ... ay economic resources are allocated depends on the economic systems. Chapter1: Preliminary In every economy, the economic system decides what to produce, how to produce, and for whom to produce. Economic Systems: Free Market Command Economy Mixed Economy In a free market economy, the market or demand and supply decides the resource allocation . In a command economy the central planner or the government decides the resource allocation . In a mixed economy part of resources is allocated by market and part by government. Chapter1: Preliminary Economics statements are divided into two types: Normative and Positive. Normative Economics: Statements Based on Value Judgment and Personal Norms. The way Things Should be (Based On our Own Value Judgment). Positive Economics: Statements Based on Fact, Data, The Way Things Are. No controversy over positive statements.

Deadlocks and Resource Allocation Deadlock environment finite resources, each of which can be assigned to <= 1 process/thread processes can request resources several at once or one at a time allowed to accumulate more while holding block until requested resource is available processes can release resources A deadlock is a situation where there is a set of blocked processes waiting for resources such that there is no way to satisfy any of their requests even if all the unblocked processes release theirs We've already encountered deadlocks dining philosophers, etc Our deadlock toolkit so far Approach 1: Ignore problem Approach 2: Prevention 2a: Exhaustive Search of Possible States 2b: Ad Hoc Genius Approach 3: Detection 3a: Ad Hoc Genius We'll be focusing on Prevention, Detection making our toolkit more systematic Also a new idea: Deadlock Avoidance Approach 1: Ignore Problem Deadlocks aren't always so bad sometimes we can just live with the possibility w ...

Robert Price All collectivities (e.g. universities, businesses) have political aspects. 2 main processes of politics: Decision making: Making resource allocation s for collectivity. Enforcement: Inducing members to view these decisions as binding. Important political terms Political system: Totality of social actions that influence making binding value allocations for collectivity. Involves more than formal mechanisms. Cultural values important; different cultures value different things. Will exist so long as there is a collectivity and a scarcity. Government: The collection of offices in a political system. - Robert Dahl. Institution specialized in allocating values. State: Makes a claim to monopolize the legitimate use of force within a collectivity. Claims sovereignty. Weber says that this is within a territorial area. ...

    Excerpt: ... COMP30052 Chapter 6: Resource management: Deadlocks Chris Kirkham February 27, 2007 In the next couple of lectures we consider an important aspect of resource management: deadlocks. BH considers simple deadlocks. Tanenbaum considers deadlocks in MOS Ch 3, and in distributed systems in DOS 3.5 but the topic is not covered at all in TvS DS. We first introduce deadlock concepts: Deadlock A deadlocked process waits for one or more events that will never occur. More precisely, a set of processes is deadlocked when every process in the set is waiting on an event that can be caused only by another process in the set. Deadlocks can be caused by programming errors in the processes! The class of deadlocks that concern operating system designers are outside the direct control of the programmer and concern resource allocation . Such practical causes of deadlock include running out of real memory, running out of virtual memory disc swap space, running out of filestore for temporary files, trying to create too many process ...
