The role of expectations in an adaptive search model
The purpose of this paper is to find sufficient conditions under which the results of the simple search model are preserved when learning is allowed. It is shown that the properties of the simple search model are preserved with very simple assumptions. Intuitively, we need a non explosive agent. That is, expectations must be smooth.
