UP FRONT, 2-26-08 Problem set 3 due next Tuesday. Will send by email. Reading for next time: Perman et al. pp. 202-224, can read boxes later. If you don’t follow, raise your hand. Worked well in a class I took. Outline for Today 1) Non-uniformly mixing pollutants: Efficient emissions from each source when there are multiple sources and receptors (continued) 2) Shapes of MC and MB functions 3) Estimating the costs of abating pollution
