Problem 26

Solve the following geometric problems by Lagranges method. (a) Find the shortest distance from the point (a1, a2, a3) in R3 to the plane whose equation is given by b1x1 + b2x2 + b3x3 + b0 = 0, where (b1, b2, b3) = (0, 0, 0). (b) Find the point on the line of intersection of the two planes a1x1 + a2x2 + a3x3 = 0 and b1x1 + b2x2 + b3x3 + b0 = 0 that is nearest to the origin. (c) Show that the volume of the largest rectangular parallelepiped that can be inscribed in the ellipsoid x2 a2 + y2 b2 + z2 c2 = 1 is 8abc/3 3.

MARKET EFFICIENCY ch 3,4 7(skim) (“market efficiency” posted under extra readings tab on Bb) Prelim: measuring efficiency - Recall that we evaluate actions “at the margin” o The issue is not whether an action is “good” ro “bad” but whether a little more action will generate more benefits than costs - Consider a patent, an exclusive right to sell a product for 20 yrs o The benefit of a patnt is that it provides firms and induviduals with the incentive to develop new and better products o The cost of a patent is that it reduces competition, and thus allows patent holders to charge higher prices - Would it be efficient to have longer patent protection o If extending the duration of
