Convergence (Hall and Jorgenson)

Hall and Jorgenson uses the integral to find the present value...

z = [integral from 0 to infinite] exp(-r s) D(s) ds

Find z, so it's a function of t, when...

D(s) = 2(t - s) / t^2 for 0 <= s <= t, D(s) for s > t. (Linear decrease)

It would be appreciated a whole lot, if anyone could take a look at the above...

Good evening,

Hi (Lecturer has to be questioned...)

Hi,

Thanks for all the help... It has been a great journey, but I think I have to give in... I'll have to talk to my math teacher later today... I have a lecture in 2 hours, so - maybe he can clarify this mystery and ease the pain? :o

I hope I'll come back to this forum with answers...

Lecturer was little help...

Hi there...

I talked with my lecturer and he left me with a little idea of how to proceed...

It's for a math project, which is due till next Friday, so I have a little time to figure it out... I'll be attending another class tomorrow with a different teacher, so I'm hoping to solve the mystery tomorrow...

But - I'll continue with other parts of the project for now...

I'll be back with news. : o )
