Natural hazards such as floods, heatwaves and windstorms can cause havoc for the people affected and typically result in huge financial losses. Drug-induced liver injury is a major public health and…

We give an efficient algorithm for computing a Cournot equilibrium when the producers are confined to integers, the inverse demand function is linear, and costs are quadratic. The method also…

Variational analysis has come of age. Long an elegant theoretical toolkit for variational mathematics and nonsmooth optimization, it now increasingly underpins the study of algorithms, and a rich…
