Studies in the Economics of Transportation

There are detailed complexities linked to the commercial valuation of clever Transportation structures (ITS) and telematics. conventional tools of quantitative research is probably not acceptable in correctly and reliably assessing the industrial affects of those applied sciences. even if complicated transportation and similar applied sciences are being deliberate and deployed at an more and more swift velocity, the various applied sciences are nonetheless really new, and their use is probably not common.

Eq. s-l < 0 and sgn det (H s - d = sgn ( _l)S - see Eq. s_ldet(Hs_d]=-sgn(-l)s. s _ 2) is negative (positive) if s - 2 is even ( odd) . 1t follows from all the above that both expressions in square brackets on the righthand side of Eq.

1) is verified, so that k-point arbitrage is not profitable. It follows, by mathematical induction, that, when 3-point arbitrage is not profitable, 4-, 5-, ... ,n-point arbitrage is also non-profitable. In the text we mentioned the existence offorward arbitrage and it is easy to see, by replacing r with r, that the theorem demonstrated above holds for forward exchange as well. Another interesting theorem is that if three-point spot arbitrage and (two-point) covered interest arbitrage are not profitable, then three-point forward arbitrage is not profitable either.

2. In any case, the defence of a given parity requires a continuous intervention of the monetary authorities of the country in the foreign exchange market: the authorities stand ready to meet both the market's excess demand for foreign exchange and the market's excess supply when these arise 21 • If, for example, at the given parity the market's demand for foreign exchange is higher than the supply by a certain amount, the monetary authorities must intervene by supplying the market with that amount, because if they did not do so, the pressure of excess demand for foreign exchange would cause a depreciation in the exchange rate.
