Abstract: Motivated by empirical demand estimation problems in economics, the objective of this minisymposium is to discuss and address both theoretical and numerical challenges of stochastic equilibrium problems, arisen from estimation and pricing of pure characteristics demand models. The four presentations aim to first provide an overview of stochastic equilibrium problems and their economic applications, to discuss a regularization method for analyzing and solving stochastic equilibrium problems, to examine the analysis of sample average approximation for a pricing problem formulated as a stochastic equilibrium problem, and finally, to present alternative formulations for studying estimation and pricing problems.
