If one wants to list the scientific “revolutions” that economics went through in the last century, then game theory should definitely be ranked very high in this list. Furthermore, this is true for the impact game theory had, and still has, in industrial organization. It is not an exaggeration to say that its utilization caused a paradigm shift in the very nature of research in industrial organization. The development of new game-theoretic concepts and tools in recent decades and their adoption in the study of industrial economics have allowed researchers not only to tackle the traditional problems in the field but also to expand research in a very rich spectrum of directions.
This Special Issue aims to collect original, high-quality applications of game-theoretic methods to the broad field of industrial organization. A non-exhaustive list of these methods includes: dynamic and Stackelberg games, entry games, models with myopic, adaptive and farsighted players, behavioral games, cooperative and coalition formation games and network and information sharing games. Applications include, but are not limited to, collusion, horizontal and vertical differentiation, innovation, two-sided markets, markets with asymmetric information, vertical industries and monopolistic competition.
