Salop’s circular city model is a variant of the Hotelling’s linear city model.Developed by Steven C. Salop in his article “Monopolistic Competition with Outside Goods”, 1979, this locational model is similar to its predecessor´s, but introduces two main differences: firms are located in a circle instead of a line and consumers are allowed to choose a second commodity.

Hotelling Model We first take the locations of the sellers as given (afterwards we are going to determine them endogenously) and assume firms compete in prices. main insights concerning the general model and characterizes sequential cat-alog competition when a pure strategy subgame perfect equilibrium exists. The classical model of spatial competition (Hotelling, 1929) predicts that, when two firms (or two political parties) compete for customers (voters) by choosing locations on a linear market (policy space), the only stable outcome is for both firms to locate at the center of the market. Econ. I show that the pattern of locations is generally asymmetric in the case of a duopoly.

We model transportation cost in Hotelling’s model as a general exponential function and analyze firms’ location choice.

The assumptions of the standard 3-firm Hotelling location model are as follows: (i) Three firms i = 1, 2,3 locate on a segment of unit length, at locations xi (i = 1, 2,3) and sell a homogeneous commodity.

A Model of Resource Depletion with Multiple Grades * ULPH, ALISTAIR M. 1978-12-01 00:00:00 The standard extension of the Hotelling model of resource depletion to consider multiple grades leads to sequential development of successively poorer grades. Abstract: This article reexamines sequential entry of firms in a Hotelling model of spatial product differentiation as analyzed by Neven (1987).

It results that demand uncertainty can be seen as a di⁄erentiation force when the –rst entrant faces demand uncertainty and as an agglomeration force when it is the second entrant. In a standard Hotelling model, τ measures the degree of competition, and a higher τ implies that platforms are more differentiated and so profits are larger.

By contrast, with multi-homing, the result is reversed because the total demand of platform 1 is independent of the price charged by platform 2.
