Detour: The Theory of Non-Linear Optimization Demand Analysis Choose ( x 1 ; x 2 ) so that u ( x 1 ; x 2 ) is maximized under the constraints p 1 x 1 + p 2 x 2 y x 1 ± 0 x 2 ± 0. ( i ) The demand functions for good 1 and 2: x ² 1 = f 1 ( p 1 ; p 2 ; y ) x ² 2 = f 2 ( p 1 ; p 2 ; y ) ( ii ) The indirect utility function u ² = v ( p 1 ; p 2 ; y ) Ani Guerdjikova ECON 313 Fall 2007 107 / 126

Detour: The Theory of Non-Linear Optimization Example Cobb-Douglas utility function u ( x 1 ; x 2 ) = x 1 x 2 Solution: demand for good 1: f 1 ( p 1 ; p 2 ; y ) = y 2 p 1 ; demand for good 2: f 2 ( p 1 ; p 2 ; y ) = y 2 p 2 ; indirect utility function: v ( p 1 ; p 2 ; y ) = y 2 4 p 1 p 2 .
