Equilibria in rent-seeking contests with homogeneous success functions
AbstractWe characterize pure-strategy Nash equilibria for symmetric rent-seeking contests in which the contest success function is homogeneous of degree zero. The equilibrium strategies have a simple form. We give sufficient conditions for existence of an equilibrium. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin/Heidelberg 2006
