  • Elasticity is one of the most important concepts in neoclassical economic theory. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the linear theory of elasticity Clapeyron's theorem states that the potential energy of deformation of a body, which is in equilibrium under a given load, is equal to half the work done by the external forces computed assuming these forces had remained constant from the initial state to the final state.

  • Where the two goods are independent , or, as described in consumer theory , if a good is independent in demand then the demand of that good is independent of the quantity consumed of all other goods available to the consumer, the cross elasticity of demand will be zero i.e. if the price of one good changes, there will be no change in demand for the other good.

  • Measuring and accounting for the variability in this elasticity is a continuing problem in behavioral finance and consumer theory. (wikipedia.org)

  • Its five-part treatment covers functions of a complex variable, the basic equations of two-dimensional elasticity, plane and half-plane problems, regions with circular boundaries, and regions with curvilinear boundaries. (doverpublications.com)
  • But their most characteristic, though not perhaps their most general, property is that they combine in themselves the apparently incompatible properties of elasticity and rigidity on the one hand and plasticity on the other. (yourdictionary.com)
  • Because the elasticity of a material is described in terms of a stress-strain relation, it is essential that the terms stress and strain be defined without ambiguity. (wikipedia.org)
  • If v = V max S K m + S {\displaystyle v={\frac {V_{\max }S}{K_{m}+S}}} then it can be easily shown than ε S v = K m K m + S {\displaystyle \varepsilon _{S}^{v}={\frac {K_{m}}{K_{m}+S}}} This equation illustrates the idea that elasticities need not be constants (as with mass-action laws) but can be a function of the reactant concentration.
