Since the C/D model is a theory to map one repre-
sentation (phonological) to another (articulatory), it allows us to both (i) predict articulatory patterns given some prosodic structures (from phonology to phonet- ics), and (ii) calculate prosodic structures given a set of actual articulatory data (from phonetics to phonology). The ﬁrst component of the theory—the mapping from phonology to phonetics—has been tested in some of our previous research (Erickson et al. 2012, Erickson et al. 2014b); this paper illustrates the second feature of the model: calculating syllable triangle represen- tations from actual articulatory data. Although this aspect of the C/D model is yet to be further explored, some preliminary results are reported in Erickson et al. (2015), Fujimura (2000), Kim et al. (2014) and Kim et al. (2015).
Hint: A separating equilibrium means that Amy takes different strategies in S and N , while she chooses the same strategy in a pooling equilibrium. Your answer in (c) might depend on the value p.
3. Question 3 (4 points) Let F and G be distribution functions with support [0, ω], and let f and g be the corresponding probability density functions. The hazard rate of F is the function λ : [0, ω) → R + defined by
(a) Suppose that price discrimination is prohibiteed and thus the firm should charge the same price to the different goups. Then, what are the optimal price and quantities?
(b) Now suppose that price discrimination is possible and the firm can charge different prices for the two groups. What are the optimal price and quantity for each market?
