Modeling and optimal management ofsize-structured biological populations

Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program researchers develop and analyze stylized models of biological populations (e.g., fish and forests), in which individuals’ growth significantly depends on their size or age and on the size or age of others. The aim is to understand the consequences of various management strategies and to reveal which management principles can optimize typical economic (e.g., profit) and environmental (e.g., biodiversity) objectives.

Drivers and impacts of economic growth: Modeling and control

Advanced Systems Analysis (ASA) Program researchers develop and study stylized economic growth models and advance methods of the optimal control theory needed to analyze such models. Long-term economic growth is driven by the dynamics of natural, physical and human capital; an extended form of these models also includes feedback with the environment under uncertainty. More

Monitoring food security with mobile phones

With a mobile data collection app and satellite data, scientists may be able to project whether a certain region is vulnerable to food shortages and malnutrition. The method has now been tested in the Central African Republic. More

COIN: Assessing Costs of Climate Change in Austria

The core objective of COIN (Cost of Inaction) is to assess costs of climate change for public and private budgets in Austria (i.e. damage costs with presently agreed mitigation measures but without adaptation measures) and to scope out information where full assessment is not yet possible. More
