Unformatted text preview: Problem Set 6: Exhaustible Resource ARE 261 November 7, 2001 Question 1 The point of this question is to show you how to use GAMS to solve a control problem. Consider a mining industry that faces a linear inverse demand curve given by p = a bq (1) where p is price, q is the amount of ore demanded (also the control) and a and b are parameters. Furthermore, assume that a > b > . The discount rate is denoted by . The equation of motion for the exhaustible resource, R (also the state), is given by _ R = q (2) Extraction costs are quadratic and are given by C = c 2 q 2 (3) where c is a parameter greater than 0. The following are values for the dierent parameters: a = 6 , b = 1 , c = 1 and = 0 : 05 . Finally, the initial level of reserves for the exhaustible resource is R = 100 . Write the discrete time optimization problem (corresponding to the con- tinuous time problem above) for the social planner and for the monopolist....
