Abstract : A definition of SemiHemogeneity of input and output structure is formulated for technologies, such as the generalization of simple homogeneity proposed by Eichhorn for the classical production function, with proof of an additional property for the two exponent functions involved. It is shown that a technology may be semihomogeneous in both input and output structure if and only i it is simply homogeneous. The cost and revenue function are shown to be semihomogeneous in output and input vector respectively, if the input and output structure are semihomogeneous. Some observations are made on statistical studies of scaling returns for scaling of input vectors. (Author)
