Pricing in linear-quadratic dynamic games

Lillian J. Ratliff, Samuel Coogan, Daniel Calderone, S. Shankar Sastry
2012 2012 50th Annual Allerton Conference on Communication, Control, and Computing (Allerton)  
We study a hierarchical linear-quadratic game with many dynamically coupled Nash followers and an uncoupled leader.  ...  The leader influences the game by choosing the quadratic dependence on control actions for each follower's cost function.  ...  dynamic games and we formulate the problem of designing pricing mechanisms for linear-quadratic dynamic games in discrete and continuous time as a convex feasibility problem.  ...

Detecting the traders' strategies in minority–majority games and real stock-prices

V. Alfi, A. De Martino, L. Pietronero, A. Tedeschi
2007 Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications  
Price dynamics is analyzed in terms of a model which includes the possibility of effective forces due to trend followers or trend adverse strategies.  ...  Then we also analyze real (NYSE) stock-prices dynamics and it is possible to derive an indication for the the "sentiment" of the market for time intervals of at least one day. 89.65+Gh,  ...  The simplest assumption is to adopt a linear dependence: P (t + 1) − P (t) ∝ P (t) − P M (t) (2) In this case, the price dynamics can be described in terms of a RW with the existence of a linear force.  ...

Optimal Demand Response and Supply Schedule Under Market-Driven Price: A Stackelberg Dynamic Game Approach [article]

Yunhan Huang
2019 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we use a Stackelberg infinite discrete-time dynamic game model to study the optimal supply schedule and the optimal demand response under a market-driven dynamic price.  ...  A set of linear constraints is developed to characterize the Stackeberg equilibrium. Simulation results show that the price is driven to a reasonable value.  ...  of the price (1) and (2) from a generalized stochastic linear quadratic dynamics game.  ...

Bidding strategies in dynamic electricity markets

Ashkan R. Kian, Jose B. Cruz
2005 Decision Support Systems  
The optimal bidding strategies are developed mathematically using dynamic game theory. We deal with games that are nonlinear in the state equations.  ...  Attention is given to a problem, where the objective functions are quadratic in the deviations of trajectories from desired trajectories and quadratic in the control deviations from the nominal controls  ...  Therefore, we extend the existing theory for linear-quadratic tracking games to discrete-time non-linear-quadratic tracking games.  ...

Pricing for Coordination in Open–Loop Differential Games

Daniel Calderone, Lillian J. Ratliff, S. Shankar Sastry
2014 IFAC Proceedings Volumes  
We provide a method for designing a quadratic pricing scheme to induce a desired local Nash equilibrium in an open-loop differential game with nonlinear dynamics.  ...  The results are applied to the problem of inducing network managers to invest in security in a multi-network with an epidemic model of the spread of malware.  ...  In Ratliff et al. (2012) ; Calderone et al. (2013) ; Coogan et al. (2013) the problem of finding prices to induce a socially optimal Nash equilibrium in a linear quadratic game is solved.  ...

Strategic Delegation and Dynamic Competition

Engelbert J. Dockner, Clemens Löffler
2009 Social Science Research Network  
In this paper we analyze strategic delegation under the assumption that firms operate in dynamic oligopolies.  ...  We derive the optimal strategic incentive in this setting and point out that the dynamic incentive can be replicated by a static one in which firms play a conjectural variations equilibrium in the output  ...  In the case of linear demand and quadratic costs the dynamic conjectures consistent with closed-loop steady state equilibria are negative, constant, symmetric, and vary continuously with the discount rate  ...
