This lecture deals with third-degree price discrimination in both monopolistic and oligopolistic markets. The classical monopoly paradigm serves as a benchmark. Next, we move to an oligopoly setting, first with best-response symmetry, then with best-response asymmetry. We end with behavior-based price discrimination. This lecture targets advanced undergraduate and graduate students.

Keywords: third-degree price discrimination; best-response asymmetry; price discrimination by purchase history
