Price dispersion and incomplete learning in the long run
Bayesian Dynamic Pricing Policies: Learning and Earning Under a Binary Prior Distribution
Under one additional assumption, a constrained variant of the myopic policy is shown to have the following strong theoretical virtue: the expected performance gap relative to a clairvoyant who knows the underlying demand model is bounded by a constant as the number of sales attempts becomes large.
A Partially Observed Markov Decision Process for Dynamic Pricing
A stylized partially observed Markov decision process (POMDP) framework is developed to study a dynamic pricing problem faced by sellers of fashion-like goods and proposes an active-learning heuristic pricing policy.
Dynamic Pricing with Multiple Products and Partially Specified Demand Distribution
A pricing policy to use at each time period the price that is optimal with respect to current parameter estimates, with an additional constraint that ensures sufficient price dispersion, which is measured by the smallest eigenvalue of the design matrix.
Dynamic Pricing for Nonperishable Products with Demand Learning
The retailer's problem is formulated as a (Poisson) intensity control problem and the structural properties of an optimal solution are derived, and a simple and efficient approximated solution is suggested.
Dynamic Learning and Pricing with Model Misspecification
We study a multiperiod dynamic pricing problem with contextual information, where the seller uses a misspecified demand model. The seller sequentially observes past demand, updates model parameters,
A Statistical Learning Approach to Personalization in Revenue Management
We consider a logit model-based framework for modeling joint pricing and assortment decisions that take into account customer features. This model provides a significant advantage when one has
Dynamic Selling Mechanisms for Product Differentiation and Learning
We consider a firm that designs a menu of vertically differentiated products for a population of customers with heterogeneous quality sensitivities. The firm faces an uncertainty about production
Dynamic Pricing with a Prior on Market Response
Computer results demonstrate that decay balancing offers significant revenue gains over recently studied certainty equivalent and greedy heuristics, and establish that changes in inventory and uncertainty in the arrival rate bear appropriate directional impacts on decay balancing prices in contrast to these alternatives.
