One of two major models of how duopolies operate. In the Bertrand model, two companies compete with each other for the lowest possible price, resulting in perfect competition. Bertrand duopoly is applicable in many circumstances but it does not express duopolistic behavior perfectly. See also: Cournot model.

Both Cournot and Bertrand duopoly models start from the hypothesis of duopoly being "energized" through existence of active competition relationships between respective (two) firms, which manifest in an active and visible manner between following limits: (A) in Cournot model, firms compete each other on basis of variation of quantity of sold products (either good or services), resulting in (Lipsey and Chrystal, 2004): a) stable profits--for both firms--, which, while smaller than monopoly profits, are larger than profits earned in perfect competition environment; b) a long-term equilibrium of resulted duopoly--since neither firm can, or will, gain the upper hand in competition "war" by means of altering (i.e.
