Abstract : The utilization range of the computational graphs, or nomographs, is remarkably wide: From military affairs to climate studies; from technological standardization to medicine. This is particularly true in regard to economics, and especially concrete economics. In a large number of economic problems, the parameters have to be arranged in such a manner that a maximum effect would be achieved. In addition, the dependences between these parameters are quite frequently nonlinear and cannot be programmed mathematically. This is when nomographs are of great help. (Author)
