Guirao and Rubio (2010)  introduce an economic model, which generalizes the classical duopoly of Cournot type, where the competitors are located around a circle or a line and each firm competes “à la Cournot” with its right and left neighboring. For the case of having three and four players, we describe completely the bifurcations of equilibria in terms of the production costs of each firm and we study the stability of them. Moreover, for the case of four players we provide some information on the two-periodic orbits of the system.
