Abstract

In the paper, the asymptotic distribution of the equilibrium price in markets with the random demand and supply is described. Two special cases - the one with smooth demand and supply curves and the one with jump demand and supply curves - are studied. It is found that in both the cases the fluctuations of the price vanish at the rate O(n^{-1/2}) as the number of the agents n tends to infinity. Finally, a normal approximation of the distribution of the equilibrium price is suggested.
