This paper concerns applications of variational analysis to some local aspects of behavioral science modeling by developing an effective variational rationality approach to these and related issues. Our main attention is paid to local stationary traps, which reflect such local equilibrium and the like positions in behavioral science models that are not worthwhile to quit. We establish constructive linear optimistic evaluations of local stationary traps by using generalized differential tools of variational analysis that involve subgradients and normals for nonsmooth and nonconvex objects as well as variational and extremal principles.

A Generalized Proximal Alternating Linearized MethodBook chapterAntoine Soubeyran, João Carlos O. Souza et Joao Xavier Cru Neto, In: Variational Analysis and Set Optimization, Akhtar A. Khan, Elisabeth Köbis et Christiane Tammer (Eds.), 2019-07, pp. 55-89, CRC Press, 2019

This chapter considers potential games, where agents play, each period, Nash worthwhile moves in alternation, such that their unilateral motivation to change rather than to stay, other players being supposed to stay, are high enough with respect to their resistance to change rather than to stay. This defines a generalized proximal alternating linearized algorithm, where resistance to change plays a major role, perturbation terms of alternating proximal algorithms being seen as the disutilities of net costs of moving.

Religious Legitimacy and the Joint Evolution of Culture and InstitutionsBook chapterAlberto Bisin, Avner Seror et Thierry Verdier, In: Advances in the Economics of Religion, JP. Carvalho, S. Iyer et J. Rubin (Eds.), 2019-06, pp. 321-332, Springer International Publishing, 2019

Religious legitimacy is becoming a central concept in historical economics, in comparative studies of the political economy of preindustrial societies in particular. In this short chapter, we provide some preliminary insights on the emergence of religious legitimacy in the context of the general theory of the evolution of institutions and culture. We show that it is the interaction of institutions and culture that is responsible for the most relevant implications of religious legitimacy in terms of economic growth and prosperity.
