Note that as t → ∞, both R(t) and u(t) converge to their steady states. Two points must be noted about this optimal R&D model. If the revenue function r(R) is convex but more nonlinear than a quadratic, then this may lead to multiple steady state equilibria and also path-dependent equilibria. 9) provided that 2h < ρ. If b > c2 (δ + h)2 then profit π(R0 ) is unbounded. Hence competitive equilibrium may not exist.
