All consumers in this economy exchange goods in to maximize their utility order under the budget constraint imposed by their initial wealth. An equilibrium price vector is a vector of prices at which for all goods demand equals supply while no consumer can improve upon his situation. All relevant information of such an economy can be captured in an excess demand function which relates to each price vector the corresponding vector of excess demands. Thus. an excess demand function. denoted by z.

If for all x £ ff-(Z) Df(x)(T M) x + T Z y TN. where y y Thus. f ~ Z if for all x £ ff-(Z) f(x). bx. If f (Z) = ~ then this condition always holds. Furthermore. the notion of transversality is indeed a generalization of regularity. The two coincide if Z consists of one single p~int. In case Z = {y}. Tf(x)Z = {Q}. f ~ and means that for all x £ f (y) we have that for every by £ Tf(x)N there {y} are bx £ T M such that by full rank. bx. x -a). (iff) a ~ a £ R. Let maps ~ N are be of a M C Rk be a submanifold with boundary and let N C a boundaryless submanifold.

In fact, Dfx is the derivative of ~;1 0 (~2 0 f 0 ~~1) 0 kl ~1 restricted to an m-dimensional subspace of R . 6 is equivalent to the standard derivative. b S defined by f(x) is defined by T f(x,bx) x m1 R ) V2 -1 A further illustration is given function i i Df k = (-X,-bX). in = -x. 1. Consider the Now the map T f : T §1 ~ T §1 x x -x For short, Df(x) = -E for all x € §1. Of importance is the rank of the matrix Df(x). Related to the rank are the concepts of regular value and regular point. 7. Consider the smooth and n-submanifold, respectively.
