Administrative decentralization workshop

Vol.3(The August issue,2004)

We held a workshop (1st time!) at the Industrial Museum Building in July.

Kumamoto prefectural assembly member Mr. Ohnishi also attended and studied gNetwork formation game theoryh, which is the basic theory to do research in gadministrative decentralizationh and gregional system problemsh.

While working on my postgraduate student research on FTA, I read gJackson and Wolinskyfs (JET, 1996) Network formation gameh as a foundation. At the time, I thought it would be possible to apply this theory to the similar problems among municipalities in Kyushu. My third-year seminal students presented this theory to Mr. Ohnishi.

Mr. Ohnishi requested us to simulate it concretely by using specific numbers. We mainly do research into economic theory. However, I would like to continue to hold workshops like this one and the coming workshop at Tosu city in early April. Because when we get the opportunity to share and apply such theory, I feel that it makes a difference.

FULL HOUSE!?

Vol.2(The May issue,2004)

This year, Mathematics for Economics class has more than three times the attendance than in previous years,
and the number is continuing to increase with every class.

Therefore we couldnft resolve this by changing lecture halls.

After considerable discussion, the class is now split into two classes by LAN starting April 26.

The class proceeded smoothly without problems and has become popular among students. I was relieved to hear that. This subject is surely needed when continuing study of economics and I hope as many students as possible attend this class.

There are many reasons for the increased attendance.

I think itfs just by chance. But on this opportunity, I hope students understand the fascinating aspect of mathematical (theoretical) economics.

I also hope it raises your interest in studying various areas of specialization in economics.

We held two seminars at KGU.

Vol.1(The April issue,2004)

We held two seminars at the Industrial Museum Building which was built near the KGU main entrance this spring.

This museum has antiquated brink building but is equipped with up-to-date machines and is capable of holding small seminars. From now on, we would like to keep holding seminars in there.

If you would like to hold a seminar in Kumamoto and are interested in using this museum, please contact me.
