Abstract

We develop theoretical underpinnings of pairwise random matching processes. We formalize the mechanics of matching, and study the links between properties of the different processes and trade frictions. A particular emphasis is placed on providing a mapping between matching technologies and informational constraints.

Keywords: Random matching, Frictions, Spatial interactions

JEL Classification: C00, C78, D83, E00
