Abstract

The fundamental paradigm shift from traditional value chains to agile service value networks (SVN) implies new economic and organizational challenges. This work provides an auction-based coordination mechanism that enables the allocation and pricing of service compositions in SVNs. The mechanism is multidimensional incentive compatible and implements an ex-post service level enforcement. Further extensions of the mechanism are evaluated following analytical and numerical research methods.

Abstract

Value chains of bio-based chemicals are very complex. Hence, a strategic decision support tool for bioeconomic site and logistics planning is developed. It includes an integrated model and three sub-models: optimization for the locations and capacities of pretreatment plants, technical for technical and economic evaluations, risk for the evaluation of uncertainties. As a result, the model suggests a nearly optimal location and the associated logistic network for the production of biochemicals.

Abstract

An important tool in risk management is the implementation of risk measures. We study dynamic models where risk measures and dynamic risk measures can be applied. In particular, we solve various portfolio optimization problems and introduce a class of dynamic risk measures via the notion of Markov decision processes. Using Bayesian control theory we furthermore derive an extension of the latter setting when we face model uncertainty.

Abstract

This book establishes several weak limit laws for problems in geometric extreme value theory. We find the limit law of the maximum Euclidean distance of i.i.d. points, as the number of points tends to infinity, under certain assumptions on the underlying distribution. One of the methods is also applicable for some other functionals, such as the maximum area or the maximum perimeter of triangles formed by point triplets.

Abstract

This study firstly suggests to re-interpret BERLIN’s concept of freedom by rejecting the notion of positive freedom as mis-naming. Secondly BERLIN’s concept of objective pluralism is analyzed in a way that understands any value as one among other values which can come into unresolvable conflict since actors have to choose between incommensurable and incomparable values. The dissertation finally explores contemporary fields of debate around liberalism, perfectionism, and participation.
