Solution set in a special case of generalized Nash equilibrium games. (English) Zbl 1265.91007

Summary: A special class of generalized Nash equilibrium problems is studied. Both variational and quasi-variational inequalities are used to derive some results concerning the structure of the sets of equilibria. These results are applied to the Cournot oligopoly problem.
