Abstract

The paper develops a stochastic dynamic model of economic equilibrium with locally interacting agents. The main focus of the study is on the modeling of market interactions - those arising in connection with commodity exchange and regulated by price mechanisms. The mathematical framework is a control theory for random vector fields on directed graphs. The graphs involved serve to describe the spatio-temporal structure of commodity flows in the system. The main results are concerned with the existence, uniqueness and stability of stochastic dynamic equilibria.
