Suppose that p = 2 c = 1 d = .2 r = .1 V ( t ) = t 1 + t Find the approximate optimal rotation period for this forest numerically. That is, ﬁnd the value of I for which the either the expression for the value of the forest is maximized, or for which the ﬁrst order condition determining this maximum is most nearly satisﬁed. You may want to use a computer for this calculation. 3. Using the model developed in chapter 10, and supposing that your forest has the following parameters, p = 11 c = 1 d = 10 V ( I ) = e rI verify that I * = 2 is an optimal harvest period. 4. p. 342 problems 1ab, 4. 1...
