Unformatted text preview: denote the marketclearing price and assume that inverse demand is given by P ( Q ) = a − Q (assuming Q < a , else P = 0 ). Assume that the total cost of f rm i from producing quantity q i is C i ( q i ) = cq i . That is, there are no f xed costs and the marginal cost is constant at c , where we assume c < a . Following Cournot, suppose that the f rms choose their quantities simultaneously. What is the Nash equilibrium? What happens as n approaches in f nity? 1...
