Abstract

Steady state equilibria in heterogeneous agent matching models with search frictions have been shown to exist in Shimer and Smith (2000} under the assumption of a quadratic search technology. We extend their analysis to the commonly investigated linear search technology.

Keywords: Search, Matching, Steady State Equilibrium
