Distribution of a Global CO2 Budget - A Mathematical Description of Resource Sharing Models

Wittmann, Günter

Resource sharing models directly address the allocation of a remaining global CO2 budget.

This paper shines the spotlight on the mathematical formulae of the following resource sharing models:

  • convergence models
  • smooth pathway models
  • emission probability model

Thus this paper contributes to greater transparency and comparability through a uniform mathematical representation, by showing generalisations and mergers as well as similarities and differences between currently used models. It also contains mathematical proofs for specified properties of the models.
