Investment under uncertainty: Timing and capacity optimization

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis


This thesis consists of three chapters on analyzing the optimal investment timing and investment capacity for the firm(s) undertaking irreversible investment in an uncertain environment. Chapter 2 studies the investment decision of a monopoly firm when it can adjust output quantity in a market with uncertain demand. Chapter 3 investigates the strategic interactions of investment decisions between a first investor that always produces up to capacity and a second investor that can adjust the output quantity. Chapter 4 considers the regulator’s optimal subsidy policy to align the firm’s optimal investment decision to the social optimal decision.
