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)

A Game Theoretic Framework for Generation Maintenance Scheduling in Oligopolistic Electricity Markets

M. A. Fotouhi; S. M. Moghaddas Tafreshi 2009 15th International Conference on Intelligent System Applications to Power Systems, 2009

This paper studies the maintenance decisions of generating companies (GENCOs) which are fully engaged in oligopolistic electricity market. Maintenance decisions in an oligopolistic electricity market have a strategic function, because GENCOs usually have impacts on market prices through capacity outages. The main contribution of this paper is modeling a game theoretic framework to analyze strategic behaviors of GENCOs. Each GENCO ...


Spectrum pricing games with random valuations of secondary users

Gaurav S. Kasbekar; Saswati Sarkar 2012 46th Annual Conference on Information Sciences and Systems (CISS), 2012

We analyze price competition among primary users in a Cognitive Radio Network (CRN), in which there are a random and unknown number of secondary users. In every slot, each primary has unused bandwidth with some probability, which it would like to lease to a secondary user, and must set a price for this bandwidth. The valuations of the secondary users ...


Spectrum White Space Trade in Cognitive Radio Networks

Gaurav S. Kasbekar; Saswati Sarkar IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, 2016

We study price competition among primaries in a Cognitive Radio Network (CRN) with multiple primaries and secondaries located in a large region. In every slot, each primary has unused bandwidth with some probability, which may be different for different primaries. Also, there may be a random number of secondaries. A primary can lease out its unused bandwidth to a secondary ...

A cluster analysis of power producer's bidding using average electricity price difference-integration model

Zhou Hao; Chen Jianhua; Han Zhenxiang; Wang Dongming; Sun Weizhen 2004 IEEE International Conference on Electric Utility Deregulation, Restructuring and Power Technologies. Proceedings, 2004

An average electricity price difference-integration model is proposed in this paper. This model can transform the unit's biding curve of power producer in market into an one-dimensional feature vector which can reflect the change of bidding curve quite conformably, so can implement classification of unit's biding using cluster analysis. Through clustering calculation of bidding curve from Zhejiang electricity market, it ...

    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.

  • Where We are: Wireless Meets the Broadband Internet

    This chapter contains sections titled: Where We Are How We Got Here: Reintegration of the Telecom Oligopoly and Cracks in the Walled Gardens Flexibility Comes to Wireless Spectrum The Wireless Technology Diaspora Cellular Carriers: Stuck on Stickiness Managed Network Services: The Outsourced Network Enhanced Broadband Voice Fixed Mobile Convergence Boundary Blurring References

  • 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.
