Help with simplification

Can someone show me how the author arrived at the following results?

First, this is almost impossible to read: it appears to be a full page of text in one jpg file.

Second, and more important, virtually nothing is defined. I am guessing that m = 2. I am guessing that $\phi (\bar z)$ has $\alpha$ and $\beta$ as arguments. I suspect that the production function is in Cobb-Douglas form. I do know that the CES function is the result of Problem 2.6, but I do not know what Problem 2.6 is.

Third, you have shown nothing of how far you have got in this problem Do you expect someone to work the entire thing out for you?

take a look at the last re-arranging, supposed to be easy.



i dont understand how a2 can appear twice, when its just one time in the first equation

you dont have to know what each letter means, its just a "simple " rearranging.

i began by simplifying to this expression
$\displaystyle \left( a_{{1}}{z}^{b-1}[{a_{{1}}}^{-{b}^{-1}}[w_{{1}}]+{a_
{{2}}}^{-{b}^{-1}}[w_{{2}}]]{q}^{1-b}=w_{{1}} \right)
$

It is not a simple re-arrangement, but it is correct.

Let's start by simplifying the notation with:

$t = z_1^*,\ \gamma = \beta - 1,\ \delta = \dfrac{\beta}{\gamma},\ and\ s = \alpha_1^{-(1/ \gamma)} * w_1^{\delta} + \alpha_2^{-(1/ \gamma)} * w_2^{\delta}.$

$Note\ 1:\ \delta * \gamma = \dfrac{\beta}{\gamma} * \gamma = \beta.$

$Note\ 2:\ \delta - \dfrac{1}{\gamma} = \dfrac{\beta}{\gamma} - \dfrac{1}{\gamma} = \dfrac{\beta - 1}{\beta - 1} = 1.$

$Note\ 3:Obviously,\ \delta - \dfrac{1}{\gamma} = 1 \implies 1 - \delta = -\ \dfrac{1}{\gamma}.$

$Note\ 4:\ \dfrac{\alpha_1^{\delta}}{w_1^{\delta}} * s = \left ( \dfrac{\alpha_1^{\delta}}{\cancel{w_1^{\delta}}} * \alpha_1^{-(1/ \gamma)} * \cancel{w_1^{\delta}} \right )+ \left ( \dfrac{\alpha_1^{\delta}}{w_1^{\delta}} * \alpha_2^{-(1/ \gamma)} * w_2^{\delta} \right) \implies$

$\dfrac{\alpha_1^{\delta}}{w_1^{\delta}} * s = \alpha_1^{\{\delta - (1 / \gamma)\}} + \alpha_2^{-(1/ \gamma )} * \left ( \dfrac{\alpha_1 * w_2}{w_1} \right)^{\delta} = \alpha_1^1 + \alpha_2^1 * \alpha_2^{- \delta} * \left ( \dfrac{\alpha_1 * w_2}{w_1} \right)^{\delta} \implies$

$\dfrac{\alpha_1^{\delta}}{w_1^{\delta}} * s = \alpha_1 + \alpha_2 \left (\dfrac{\alpha_1}{\alpha_2} * \dfrac{w_2}{w_1} \right)^{\delta}.$

$w_1 = \alpha_1 * t^{\gamma} * s^{(1 / \delta )} * q^{- \gamma} \implies log(w_1) = log(\alpha_1 * t^{\gamma} * s^{1 / \delta )} * q^{- \gamma}) \implies$

$log(w_1) = log(\alpha_1) + \gamma * log(t) + \dfrac{1}{\delta} * log(s) - \gamma * log(q) \implies$

$\delta * log(w_1) = \delta * log(\alpha_1) + \beta * log(t) + log(s) - \beta * log(q) \implies$

$\beta * log(t) = \delta * \{log(w_1 - \alpha_1)\} - log(s) + \beta * log(q) = log \left ( \dfrac{w_1^{\delta}}{\alpha_1^{\delta}} \right ) + log \left ( \dfrac{1}{s} \right) + \beta * log(q) \implies$

$log(t) = \dfrac{1}{\beta} * log \left ( \dfrac{w_1^{\delta}}{\alpha_1^{\delta}} * \dfrac{1}{s} \right) + log(q) \implies$

$t = \left ( \dfrac{w_1^{\delta}}{\alpha_1^{\delta}} * \dfrac{1}{s} \right)^{(1/ \beta)}q = \left ( \dfrac{\alpha_1^{\delta}}{w_1^{\delta}} * s \right)^{-(1/ \beta)} q \implies$

$t = \left \{ \alpha_1 + \alpha_2 \left (\dfrac{\alpha_1}{\alpha_2} * \dfrac{w_2}{w_1} \right)^{\delta} \right \}^{-(1/ \beta )}q.$

Quite ugly.

Greatly appreciated the answer!! The only part i did not get is in at the ende where you take $\displaystyle \delta (ln(w_{1}-a_{1})) \rightarrow ln(w^{\delta}/a^{\delta})$.


PsWritibg on my ipad so i cant write it out the entire expression/step)

$-\ log(x) = (-\ 1) log(x) = log(x^{-1}) = log \left( \dfrac{1}{x} \right )\ for\ all\ real\ x > 0.$

$So\ \delta * \{ log(w_1) - log( \alpha_1 ) \} = \{ \delta * log(w_1)\} - \{\delta * log (a_1)\} \implies$

$\delta * \{ log(w_1) - log( \alpha_1 ) \} = log(w_1^{\delta}) - log(\alpha_1^{\delta}) = log(w_1^{\delta}) + log \left ( \dfrac{1}{\alpha_1^{\delta}} \right ) \implies$

$\delta * \{ log(w_1) - log( \alpha_1 ) \} = log \left (w_1^{\delta} * \dfrac{1}{\alpha_1^{\delta}} \right ) = log \left ( \dfrac{w_1^{\delta}}{\alpha_1^{\delta}} \right ).$
