33) in which 0:, (3, and')' are positive constants. Horsky and Simon solved an optimal control problem with an infinite horizon and linear advertising costs. 33) with data from telephonic banking in the US. Note that iffunction f is linear, if 0: = ')' = 0, and a decay term, say, ox(t), is subtracted on the right-hand side of the dynamics, one obtains x(t) = (3a(t)[rn - x(t)J - ox(t). Formally, this is the Vidale-Wolfe model, cr. 23). 33); x(t) = [0: + (3f(aU)) + ')'x(t) + Bf(a(t))x(t)J(rn - x (t )).

The sign of this term depends on whether firm i advertises more than firm j or not. Suppose, for instance, that ai(t) > aj(t). Then there is a positive influence on the rate of change of sal es of firm i, but this influence diminishes as the market saturates. Deal et al. (1979) characterize an OLNE by numerical methods. 30) such that Xl (t) + x2 (t) = 1. , switching between a high and a low advertising rate). 30). 31) where k is a positive constant and Sl(t) + S2(t) = m. 30) where these effects are constant.

27) is a decay term, as in Deal (1979), and the third term is a competitor's advertising term, as in the Lanchester model. Compared to the model by Deal , the effect of the own advertising of firm i is independent of the level of untapped sales. Leitmann and Schmitendorf derive analytically an OLNE. Open-loop strategies are independent of the initial states X i (0) and are (degenerate) Markov perfect strategies. The reason is that the game is a "linear state" game; see Dockner et al. (2000, Ch.
