CHARLIE The good news is, it's still in its infancy. Supplies are limited. There're only a handful of suspected dealers. Conditions are perfect... DAVID Perfect for what, Charlie? CHARLIE We don't have to wait for an epidemic before we act. I've got a plan to stop Ice now, before it takes off. LIZ A math plan... CHARLIE Economic Modeling Theory, actually.

The IS-LM model is a graphical representation of a Keynesian model of the macroeconomy. The model solves for
equilibrium in both the goods market and the money market, taking certain parameters as given. The IS line represents
the goods market, and the LM line represents the money market.

CHARLIE Let's put it on the board. Charlie tosses the ball to Alan, writes "GAME TEMPO" under the list they're compiling - "GYM TEMPERATURE", "OPTIMUM CHARLIE (cont'd) Tell you another thing I'd like to look at, and we'll want to recruit Larry's expertise for this... ALAN Go to Larry? For basketball? CHARLIE Physics, Dad... I'll bet there's an optimum arc for a shot that'll maximize its chance of going in... AMITA Good point, put it up. As Charlie turns to the board, his CELL PHONE RINGS. He tosses the chalk to Amita. While Charlie takes the call, Amita adds "SHOT ARC" to their list.

This Demonstration illustrates the various factors that influence the trajectory of a soccer ball. It shows the many decisions a
player would make to pinpoint a shot, especially in relation to the location of the goalie.

DON We don't know that, Charlie. Guy finds out he's surrounded, outgunned and out-numbered... Could be more than he bargained for... CHARLIE Look, right now, we hold an unexpected asymmetric advantage over the Nash Equilibrium... (off Cam) Game Theory...

Consider a bimatrix (2×2) mixed
extended game. The set of Nash
equilibria (red) in a particular game is
determined as the intersection of the graphs of best response mappings of the blue and green players; its vertices are
given at the bottom.

CHARLIE So let's say my economic modeling theory works, and we destroy the Hawaiian Ice market... something else is just going to take its place, right? DON Probably... Did you think you could fix the world? CHARLIE Well... yeah.

We use numerical maximum likelihood
estimation to obtain the parameters governing probability distributions that might plausibly generate the daily, weekly,
monthly, or quarterly return distributions of stocks from the Dow 30. The candidate distribution types should probably
be continuous and supported on the whole real line.
