Abstract

Random matching models with infinite populations present formal difficulties due to the lack of a law of large numbers for a continuum of random variables. In a previous paper (Alós-Ferrer, 1999), random matching processes for a continuum of agents were studied, proving their existence. The present work extends the analysis to the case of several populations, which includes general equilibrium buyers-sellers models, and evolutionary models with underlying asymmetric games.
