# Notation of a cobbCobb-douglasDouglas function printed in 1989

I am trying to understand a paper written back in 1989 about long run population growth.

It seems like the PDF is a scanned image of the paper.

http://faculty.econ.ucdavis.edu/faculty/gclark/papers/clark_evolution.pdf

The notation for the function is on page 11 of the pdf (here):

Is it:

$$Q_t = A_t*(K_t^\alpha N^t_\beta T_t^\rho)$$

or

$$Q_t = A_t*(K_t^\alpha N^\beta_t T_t^\rho)$$

Im not sure its a typo or not because it shows up the same way later in the paper on page 14.

*Edit: I also have no idea what $$\hat c$$ is in the paper:

I don't see where it is defined. Only where consumption is compared to it.
