On the Modelling of Economic Equilibria by Variational Inequalities

Conference paper


Let us consider a single commodity that is produced at n supply markets and consumed at m demand markets. There is a total supply g i in each supply market i (i = 1, …, n). Likewise there is a total demand f j in each demand market j (j = 1, …, m.) Since the markets are spatially separated, x ij units of the commodity are transported from i to j.
