    The Hotelling bi-matrix game
    Mouche, P.H.M. van; Pijnappel, Willem - \ 2018
    Optimization Letters 12 (2018)1. - ISSN 1862-4472 - p. 187 - 202.
    bi-matrix game - demi-modality - hotelling - location theory - nash equilibrium - tarski fixed point theorem
    We study the pure equilibrium set for a specific symmetric finite game in strategic form, referred to as the Hotelling bi-matrix game. General results tha guarantee non-emptiness of this set (for all parametric values) do not seem to exist. We prove non-emptiness by determining the pure equilibrium set. In this proof so-called demi-modality properties of the conditional payoff functions play an important role.
    Naar buiten! To the Great Outdoors : groen- en recreatiewensen van internationale kenniswerkers in Nederland
    Veer, P.M. ; Luttik, J. - \ 2010
    Wageningen [etc.] : Alterra [etc.] (Alterra-rapport 1940) - 114

    Deze studie verkent de relaties tussen het vestigingsklimaat voor internationale kennisintensieve bedrijven en groen/blauwe landschapsservices. De beschikbaarheid en kwaliteit van werknemers is de dominante factor bij de locatiekeuze van de genoemde bedrijven. Dit maakt de Quality of Living (QoL) in stad of regio indirect tot een belangrijke vestigingsfactor. Welke plaats nemen stedelijk groen en recreatiemogelijkheden in binnen de QoL-factoren? De kern van deze studie bestaat uit een enquête gehouden onder 229 internationale kenniswerkers in Nederland verdeeld over drie gebieden. De resultaten geven aan dat QoL een belangrijke factoren is bij het kiezen van de woonlokatie. De respondenten vinden het belangrijk dat er groene voorzieningen zijn in hun directe woonomgeving. Wandelen, en fietsen zijn de meest populaire recreatieve bezigheden in de openlucht. Voor deze activiteiten zijn geen speciale voorzieningen nodig. Wèl hoogwaardige groene netwerken in de stad met verbindingen naar buiten. Hardlopen, joggen, balsporten en zwemmen worden vaak genoemd. Golf en ‘extreme duursporten’ komen weinig voor. De respondenten missen in Nederland stadsparken, natuur, bergen, heuvels, rust, ruimte en wildernis.
    Space and economics : An introduction to regional economics
    Heijman, W.J.M. ; Schipper, R.A. - \ 2010
    Wageningen : Wageningen Academic (Mansholt publication series vol. 7) - ISBN 9789086860975 - 266

    The subject area Regional Economics is becoming more and more topical. This means that in economic analyses the production factor 'space' is of increasing importance. This study book aims to integrate space in the area of General Economics in an analytical way. Models and their applications play a major role in the book's approach. The subject of regional economics contains two broad fields. The first is the theory of location, including the basic principles of the economic theory of land use, which has a microeconomic character. The second subject is regional economic development, including spatial equilibrium theory, which is mainly macroeconomic in nature. In the book, both fields will be elaborated in detail. Basic principles of economics are included as background information in order to study the latter advanced subjects addressed in the book. Another important feature of the book is its European character which is rather unique. In fact the majority of the applications here are from Europe. Regional statistical data and maps available in Eurostat have been used abundantly. The spreadsheet programme Excel is used as a convenient tool for the computation of model results. The description of major applications of Excel is included in the book, which makes it self contained.

    Pathways to High-tech Valleys and Research Triangles

    Silicon Valley and the industrial districts of Italy, where shared identity, superior skills, regional specialization and trust-based networking among local firms have produced dynamic and flexible ecosystems, are inspiring examples of the successful promotion of thriving technology and business clusters. Cluster studies, besides acknowledging (the potential of) concentration and spill-overs in a dynamic network of larger companies and new start-up firms, also pay attention to the importance of investors, universities and other supportive institutions that contribute to the international and longer-term competitiveness of local industry clusters. This book looks at why certain regions are successful in creating an innovative technology cluster (with chapters on Silicon Valley and the Italian Food districts) and why aspiring communities and districts seek to learn from those examples and create an internationally successful region or sector (with chapters on the Dutch Biopartner program to stimulate entrepreneurship in the life sciences, on high-tech Israel and on the Italian Slow Food Movement). In some cases internationally renowned universities and/or research laboratories inspire engineers and scientists to become entrepreneurs and take the lead in cluster development (e.g. in the chapters on Food Valley Wageningen, the Knowledge Pearl Leuven-Flanders and the Scandinavian Oresund cluster). In other cases indigenous flagship firms, collaborating with each other and outsourcing many activities to smaller companies, may act as a region’s catalyst (e.g. in the chapters on Flanders Vegetable Valley, the Dutch horticultural industry and the Defence Diversification Agency in the UK). Chapters on North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park and the recent initiative to stimulate innovativeness in East Netherlands show that also an active government can stimulate emerging clusters by making local resources and funds available (e.g. risk capital, high-quality infrastructure), attracting foreign firms to invest and building ties between the private sector, knowledge institutions and local authorities.
    Methods for computing Nash equilibria of a location quantity game, Submitted to Operations Research

    A two stage model is described where firms take decisions on where to locate their facility and on how much to supply to which market. In such models in literature, typically the market price reacts linearly on supply. Often two competing suppliers are assumed or several that are homogeneous, i.e. their cost structure is assumed to be identical. The focus of this paper is on developing methods to compute equilibria of the model where more than two suppliers are competing that each have their own cost structure, i.e. they are heterogeneous. Analytical results are presented with respect to optimality conditions for the Nash equilibria in the two stages. Based on these analytical results, algorithms are developed to find equilibria. Numerical cases are used to illustrate the results and the viability of the algorithms. The method finds an improvement of a result reported in literature.

    Regionale Economie : van vestigingsplaatstheorie naar regionale ontwikkeling
    Heijman, W.J.M. - \ 2002
    Delft : Eburon - ISBN 9789051669299 - 152
    locatietheorie - vestigingsplaats van de productie - regionale ontwikkeling - locatie - regionale economie - location theory - location of production - regional development - regional economics - location
    Dit boek biedt een inleiding in de regionale economie als specialisatie van de algemene economie. Het is opgebouwd uit twee delen: vestigingsplaatstheorie bouwt voort op de principes van micro-economie, terwijl de regionale ontwikkeling is gebaseerd op de macro-economie. Moderne ontwikkelingen in de regionaal- economische theorie, zoals economische effecten van clustervorming en toepassingen van de speltheorie komen daarbij aan de orde.
