Title: On inventory control with reference prices: a technical note

Authors: Yigal Gerchak

Addresses: Department of Industrial Engineering, Tel-Aviv University, Israel

Abstract: A retailer sets prices, as well as, simultaneously, selects quantities to order from the supplier. We consider a two-period setting where the second period's demand depends on the first period's ('reference') price, as well as on the second period price. We consider a linear-additive demand function as well as a novel iso-elastic multiplicative model.

Keywords: inventory control; reference price; stochastic demand.
