The Continuous Hotelling Pure Location Game with Elastic Demand Revisited
- 198 Downloads
The Hotelling pure location game has been revisited. It is assumed that there are two identical players, strategy sets are one-dimensional, and demand as a function of distance is constant or strictly decreasing. Besides qualitative properties of conditional payoff functions, attention is given to the structure of the equilibrium set, best-response correspondences and the existence of potentials.
