Optimal switching from competition to cooperation: a preliminary explorationBook chapterRaouf Boucekkine, Carmen Camacho et Benteng Zou, V. Veliov, J. Haunschmied, R. Kovacevic et W. Semmler (Eds.), Springer Nature Switzerland AG, Forthcoming

In this paper, we tackle a generic optimal regime switching problem where the decision making process is not the same from a regime to another. Precisely, we consider a simple model of optimal switching from competition to cooperation. To this end, we solve a two- stage optimal control problem. In the first stage, two players engage in a dynamic game with a common state variable and one control for each player. We solve for open-loop strategies with a linear state equation and linear-quadratic payoffs. More importantly, the players may also consider the possibility to switch at finite time to a cooperative regime with the associated joint optimization of the sum of the individual payoffs. Using the- oretical analysis and numerical exercises, we study the optimal switching strategy from competition to cooperation. We also discuss the reverse switching.
