Suppose p(q) = a – bq in the Cournot duopoly game of example 1.3.

(a) Check that the second-order and boundary conditions for equation (1.3) are satisfied. Compute the Nash equilibrium.

(b) Now suppose there are I identical firms, which all have cost function  Compute the limit of the Nash equilibria as 1 ∝. Comment.
