Finding all n-firm Cournot equilibria. (English) Zbl 0533.90017
This paper demonstrates a procedure for finding all n-firm Cournot equilibrium, symmetric and nonsymmetric. The procedure uses a ”backward reaction mapping” which gives the actions of a single firm which are consistent with profit maximization and aggregate output (rather than with the output of n-1 other firms).
