Tác giả : Dennis Aigner (1977)  Previous studies of the socalled frontier production function have not utilized an adequate characterization of the disturbance term for such a model. In this paper we provide an appropriate specification, by defining the disturbance term as the sum of symmetric normal and (negative) halfnormal random variables. Various aspects of maximumlikelihood estimation for the coefficients of a production function with an additive disturbance term of this sort are then considered.

Tác giả : MAEDA. T (1994)  In this paper, we are concerned with a multiobjective opti mization problem with inequality constraints. We introduce a con straint qualification and derive the KuhnTucker type necessary conditions for efficiency. Moreover, we give conditions which ensure the constraint qualification.

Tác giả : Do Van Luu (2008)  In this article, we establish higherorder necessary and sufficient conditions for strict local Pareto minima of nonsmooth multiobjective programing problems in terms of Studniarski’s derivatives of higher order

Tác giả : V. Jeyakumar (1999)  Noncompact convexificators, which provide upper convex and lower concave approximations for a continuous function, are defined. Various calculus rules, including extremality and meanvalue properties, are presented. Regularity conditions are given for convexi ficators to be minimal. A characterization of quasiconvexity of a con tinuous function is obtained in terms of the quasimonotonicity of convexificators.

Tác giả : V. Jeyakumar (1998)  The notion of approximate Jacobian matrices is introduced for a continuous vector valued map. It is shown, for instance, that the Clarke generalized Jacobian is an approximate
Jacobian for a locally Lipschitz map. The approach is based on the idea of convexificators of real valued functions. Mean value conditions for continuous vectorvalued maps and Taylor’s expansions
for continuously Gˆateaux differentiable functions (i.e., C1functions) are presented in terms of ap proximate Jacobians and approximate Hessians, respectively. Secondorder necessary and sufficient
conditions for optimality and convexity of C1functions are also given

Tác giả : B. Aghezzaf (1999)  In this paper, we develop secondorder necessary and sufficient optimality conditions for multiobjective optimization problems with both equality and inequality constraints. First, we generalize the
Lin fundamental theorem (Ref. 1) to secondorder tangent sets; then, based on the above generalized theorem, we derive secondorder neces sary and sufficient conditions for efficiency.

Tác giả : Do Van Luu (2009)  In this article, we establish theorems of the alternative for a system described by inequalities, equalities and a set inclusion, which are generalizations of Tucker’s classical theorem of the alternative, and develop Kuhn–Tucker necessaryconditions for efficiency to mathematical programs in normed linear spaces
involving inequality, equality and set constraints with positive Lagrange multipliers of all the components of objective functions

Tác giả : W.W. Cooper (1996)  The extensions, new developments and new interpretations for DEA covered in this paper
include: (1) new measures of efficiency, (2) new models and (3) new ways of implement ing established models with new results and interpretations presented that include treat ments of "congestion", "returnstoscale" and "mix" and "technical" inefficiencies and
measures of efficiency that can be used to reflect all pertinent properties. Previously used
models, such as those used to identify "allocative inefficiencies", are extended by means
of "assurance region" approaches which are less demanding in their information require ments and underlying assumptions. New opportunities for research a...

Tác giả : Allen N. Berger (1993)  Both input and output inefficiencies are derived from a profit function for US banks. These
inefficiencies are decomposed into allocative and technical components in a new way using
shadow prices. About half of all potential variable prolits are estimated to be lost to inefliciency.
Most inefficiencies are from deficient output revenues, rather than excessive input costs. Larger
banks are found to be more efficient than smaller banks, which may offset scale diseconomies
found elsewhere. Tests of a new concept, ‘optimal scope economies’, suggest that joint
production is optimal for most banks, but that specialization is optimal for others.

Tác giả : R.D. Banker (1996)  This brief note adds computational convenience and efficiency to the article by Banker and Thrall on returns to scale in DEA by modifying one of their suggestions to avoid the need for examining all alternate optima in order to reach a decision.

Tác giả : G. E. Battese (1959)  A stochastic frontier production function is defined for panel data on firms, in which the nonnegative technical inetGciency effects are assumed to be a function of firmspecific variables and time. The inefficiency effects are assumed to be independently distributed as truncations of normal distributions with constant variance, but with means which are a linear function of observ able variables. This panel data model is an extension of recently proposed models for inefTiciency effects in stochastic frontiers for crosssectional data. An empirical application of the model is obtained using up to ten years of data on paddy farmers from an Indian village. The null hypo theses, that the...
