Researchers in the field of mathematical economics have extensively and intensively studied mixed oligopoly models. In contrast to the classical oligopoly, a mixed oligopoly, apart from standard producers who seek to maximize their net profit, usually includes at least one public company trying to optimize another objective function involving indicators of the firm’s social responsibility.
