Oligopoly

View this topic in
An oligopoly is a market form in which a market or industry is dominated by a small number of sellers (oligopolists). The word is derived, by analogy with "monopoly", from the Greek ὀλίγοι (oligoi) "few" + πόλειν (pólein) "to sell". (Wikipedia.org)

Nash equilibria detection for multi-player games

Rodica Ioana Lung; Tudor Dan Mihoc; D. Dumitrescu IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation, 2010

One of the main issues in computational game theory is equilibria detection in multi player games. This problem is approached using a generative relation for strategy profiles and two different search operators: crowding based differential evolution and a simple stepping stone reinforcing search algorithm. A probabilistic generative relation is also derived in order to tackle a higher number of players. ...


Electricity market equilibrium using competitive coevolutionary algorithms with transmission constraints

A. A. Ladjici; M. Boudour 2008 5th International Multi-Conference on Systems, Signals and Devices, 2008

Market equilibrium of an oligopolistic electricity market considering transmission constraints. The market game is played by bounded evolutionary agents, adapting their strategies to maximize their profits in a competitive environment. This paper considers a centralized market with maximalist ISO. The ISO performs an OPF based on submitted Agentspsila bid and calculates the power to be dispatched from each supplier, in ...


Online price competition within and between heterogeneous retailer groups

C. Kocas 37th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 2004. Proceedings of the, 2004

This study presents a model of price competition in a market for a homogenous good with many asymmetrically positioned retailers, a typical example of which could be the online markets for books, music, movies or software. These markets are highly competitive oligopolies served by hundreds of active retailers and that have been affected by information technologies such as price comparison ...


Study on hotel revenue management without explicitly incorporating competition

N. A. Masruroh; H. N. Absari; Y. P Mulyani 2016 IEEE International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management (IEEM), 2016

This paper analyzes the possibility of applying model that is not explicitly incorporate competition in hotel Revenue Management. Three scenarios are evaluated; (i) each seller understands how its own price affects its own demand but does not directly account for how its competitor's price does, (ii) each seller knows the total market size, and tries to learn how its own ...


Formulation of Oligopolistic Competition in AC Power Networks: An NLP Approach

Guillermo Bautista; Miguel F. Anjos; Anthony Vannelli IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, 2007

In this paper, oligopolistic competition in a centralized power market is characterized by a multi-leader single-follower game, and formulated as a nonlinear programming (NLP) problem. An ac network is used to represent the transmission system and is modeled using rectangular coordinates. The follower is composed of a set of competitive suppliers, demands, and the system operator, while the leaders are ...

    Today's wireless communications and networking practices are tightly coupled with economic considerations, to the extent that it is almost impossible to make a sound technology choice without understanding the corresponding economic implications. This book aims at providing a foundational introduction on how microeconomics, and pricing theory in particular, can help us to understand and build better wireless networks. The book can be used as lecture notes for a course in the field of network economics, or a reference book for wireless engineers and applied economists to understand how pricing mechanisms influence the fast growing modern wireless industry. This book first covers the basics of wireless communication technologies and microeconomics, before going in-depth about several pricing models and their wireless applications. The pricing models include social optimal pricing, monopoly pricing, price differentiation, oligopoly pricing, and network externalities, supported by introd ctory discussions of convex optimization and game theory. The wireless applications include wireless video streaming, service provider competitions, cellular usage-based pricing, network partial price differentiation, wireless spectrum leasing, distributed power control, and cellular technology upgrade. More information related to the book (including references, slides, and videos) can be found at ncel.ie.cuhk.edu.hk/content/wireless-network-pricing.

  • The Evolving Pay TV

    In the past, there were independent cable and satellite Pay TV providers, but in recent times, the distinction between telecommunications and Pay TV industries are blurring, with telecom operators making acquisitions (AT&T acquiring DIRECTV, the largest Pay TV provider worldwide, in the Americas), and Pay TV providers offering telecommunications services (BSkyB in Europe, Dish in the United States) starting with fixed broadband and entering mobile either through wholesale agreement (MVNO) or directly buying mobile spectrum.Triple play refers to bundles with fixed voice, fixed broadband, and Pay TV. As per the fixed line???mobile convergence, now the offered packages are quadruple???play including mobile (which in turn is both voice and data).???Content is king??? is a true statement that reflects that what matters most to customers is the content. Sports and entertainment produced by majors' oligopoly are the most demanded ones.From a technology perspective, broadcasting TV can be transmitted via satellite (most ubiquitous), cable (where deployed), ADSL (with limitations in terms of bandwidth and quality where HD transmissions are more challenging), and FTTH (still marginal, but growing). The last two are based on the so???called IPTV, which as its name implies is based on IP transmission.Video resolution is a key component of user experience. While High Definition is still the mainstream, it has to be seen whether Ultrahigh Definition (4K, 8K) is successful, or not appreciated by users like apparently it has been the case for 3D TV.Finally, ???cord cutting??? is a term used to describe customers who stop subscribing to linear Pay TV (which is basically a package of many TV channels), switching to the cheaper Subscription Video on Demand (SVOD), in which the user chooses what to watch and when to watch it. Netflix is the largest independent provider (with 80 milli on paying customers) and it has announced global expansion.

  • Introduction to Micro-economics

    Chapter 1 introduces key economic ideas which are used throughout the remainder of the text. The chapter opens with an introduction to the concept of economic efficiency, distinguishing short-term efficiency in use and longer-term efficiency in investment. The theory of constrained optimisation is introduced and immediately applied to the determination of the demand function from a consumer's utility function and the determination of the supply function from a producer's cost function. These concepts are combined to determine efficient outcomes in a market process, which leads to the concept of a smart market. There is a brief discussion of situations of market power, including an overview of market outcomes in both monopoly and oligopoly.
