Diffusion of innovations under conditions of uncertainty: A stochastic approach
MetadataShow full item record
Duffision of new technologies sumultaneously introduced into a market is studied. The relative advantages of these technologies are not clear for the imitators, who must make their choice in order to survive in the changing economic environment. The model allows to sumulate the diffusion as a stochastic path-dependent process, where thechoice of followers is influenced by the predecessors.
