We use a two-period dynamic mixed duopoly model, in which a profit-maximizing proprietary firm competes with a rival, the open source. Downloadable (with restrictions).

Adaptation, in biology, the process by which a species becomes fitted to its environment; it is the result of natural selection’s acting upon heritable variation over several generations.

Organisms are adapted to their environments in a variety of ways, such as in their structure, physiology, and genetics. A great book, but difficult to review.

This book raises hundreds of interesting questions but answers very few. If you liked Anti-fragile (Taleb), the Misbehavior of Markets (Mandlebrot), or the Selfish Gene (Dawkins) you'll probably like this as well.

In a two-stage model of duopolistic capacity choice and subsequent price competition, consumer switching costs can deter some consumers from seeking service at a low-price firm that lacks sufficient capacity to serve the entire market.

In this setting, firms' residual demand functions are aggregated from the firm-selection decisions of individual consumers. We analyze an overlapping-generations model of duopolistic competition in the presence of consumer switching costs. The very purpose of his Leviathan was to end chaos and bloodshed, which had.

Chaos theory is a branch of mathematics focusing on the study of chaos—states of dynamical systems whose apparently random states of disorder and irregularities are often governed by deterministic laws that are highly sensitive to initial conditions.
