Analysis of decision-making in economic chaos control Academic Article uri icon


  • In some economic chaotic systems, players are concerned about whether their performance is improved besides taking some methods to control chaos. In the face of chaos occurring in competition, whether one player takes controlling measures or not affects not only their own earning but also other opponents' income. An output duopoly competing evolution model with bounded rationality is introduced in this paper. Using modern game theory, decision-making analyses about chaos control of the model are taken by taking aggregate profits as players' payoff. It is found that the speed of players' response to the market and whether the decisive parameters are in the stable region of the Nash equilibrium or not have a distinct influence on the results of the game. The impact of cost function' type on results of the game is also found. The mechanism of influences is discovered by using numerical simulation. 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
