Abstract: This paper is intended to provide a detailed game-theoretical analysis of the buyer-vendor coordination problem embedded in the price-discount inventory model. Pure and mixed, cooperative and non-cooperative strategies are developed. Highlights of the paper include the full characterization of the Pareto optimal set, the determination of profit-sharing mechanisms for the cooperative case and the derivation of a set of parameter-specific non-cooperative mixed strategies. A numerical example is presented to illustrate the main features of the model.
