- A cutting-edge collection of essays, which develops an economic theory based on the mathematics of the digital computer.
- Proposes a wholly different mathematical foundation for economic theory and applied economics.
- The contributors supply explicit formalizations and applications to traditional issues in economic analysis.
- Each chapter presents new theoretical perspectives and results, and novel conceptual definitions.
