Stochastic games in economics and related fields: an overview

  • AMIR, Rabah

This survey provides an extensive account of research in economics based on the stochastic games paradigm. Its area-by-area coverage is in the form of an overview, and includes applications in resource economics, industrial organization, macroeconomics, market games, experimental and empirical economics. For methodologically defined frameworks, the coverage is somewhat more detailed (to the extent that the material is not covered elsewhere in this volume), and includes the open-loop concept, the linear-quadratic model, myopic equilibrium, games of perfect information, and stochastic games with a continuum of players.
