hark-oligop-ind.gms : SPE model from Harker - oligopoly version

**Description**

A spatial price equilibrium model is used to demonstrate different ways of modeling market behavior. In this variant, we look at the Cournot-Nash model that arises when we assume an oligopoly, i.e. the production in each region is controlled by a single firm, where the regional firms are independent. This model starts from the Cournot-Nash solution and verifies that this is a solution to each of the agent optimization problems considered in turn. Harker, P T, Alternative Models of Spatial Competition. Operations Research 34, 3 (1986), 410-425. Contributor: Steven Dirkse, June 2011 either include hark-oligop or run with a restart from the hark-oligop save file
