An optimal inventory pricing and ordering strategy subject to demand dependent on stock level and price
arxiv: Computer Science::Computer Science and Game Theory
This article considers the deterministic singular optimal control problem of profit maximisation for inventory replenished at a variable rate and depleted by demand which is assumed to vary with price and stock availability. Optimal policies for the product order rate a... View more
