In this paper we develop an extended Solow growth model with skilled labor emigration which aggregates different labor types from strict complementarity to perfect substitution. Except in two particular cases, balanced growth paths can only be attained asymptotically. We therefore derive an analytical characterization of the transitional dynamics of the model. We are thus able to study the impact of labor elasticity of substitution on the time pattern of per capita income in the country that experiences brain drain. Simulations show that the shape of per capita trajectory depends crucially on the degree of complementarity (substitutability) between labor skills. Given that no income trajectory dominates the others, there is room for policy issues by influencing the elasticity of substitution (Klump and Preissler, 2000). [less ▲]

In this paper, we study a vintage technology model under a market equilibrium setting. In this model, firms can invest not only on new vintage technology, but also on existing ones. We first generalize previous partial equilibrium settings and, second, incorporate the adoption problem into a vintage framework. [less ▲]

We analyze the hypothesis about the effectiveness of energy saving technologies to reduce the trade-off between economic growth and energy preservation. In a general equilibrium vintage capital model with embodied energy saving technical progress, we show that positive growth is only possible if the growth rate of the energy saving technical progress exceeds the decreasing rate of the energy supply.

In this paper, initial-irregular oblique derivative boundary value problems for nonlinear and non-divergence parabolic complex equations of second order in multiply connected domains are discussed, where coefficients of equations are measurable. Firstly, the uniqueness of solutions for the above problems is verified, and then a priori estimates of solutions for the problems are given. Finally, by using the above estimates and the Leray-Schauder theorem, the existence of solutions of the initial-boundary value problems is proved. [less ▲]
