The course develops the main models of oligopolistic competition, analyzes the sources of market power, introduces the theory of competition policy (focusing on mergers and collusion) and analyzes also research and development. The students should get familiar with the main models of industrial organization, with the aim to be able to do research in IO themselves, writing formal models, getting results formally presented as propositions, which must be formally, mathematically proven.
