Book Chapter
DYSON, R.G. and OLIVEIRA, F.S. 2007. Flexibility, robustness and real options. In Dyson, R.G. and O'Brien, F.A. (eds.) Supporting strategy: frameworks, methods and models. Chichester, Wiley, chapter 13, pages 343-366.

The importance of flexibility in the strategic development process goes back to the formative days of strategic planning. One of its earliest manifestations was in the guise of contingency planning. For example, Argenti (1974) in his book "Systematic... Read More about Flexibility, robustness and real options..

Evaluating individual market power in electricity markets via agent-based simulation. (2003)
Journal Article
BUNN, D.W. and OLIVEIRA, F.S. 2003. Evaluating individual market power in electricity markets via agent-based simulation. Annals of operations research [online], 121(1-4), pages 57-77. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1023/A:1023399017816

We use agent-based simulation in a coordination game to analyse the possibility of market power abuse in a competitive electricity market. The context of this was a real application to the England and Wales electricity market as part of a Competition...

Agent-based simulation: an application to the new electricity trading arrangements of England and Wales. (2001)
Journal Article
BUNN, D.W. and OLIVEIRA, F.S. 2001. Agent-based simulation: an application to the new electricity trading arrangements of England and Wales. IEEE transactions on evolutionary computation [online], 5(5), pages 493-503. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/4235.956713

This paper presents a large-scale application of multiagent evolutionary modeling to the proposed new electricity trading arrangements (NETA) in the U.K. This is a detailed plant-by-plant model with an active specification of the demand side of the m...
