Abstract

A dynamic pricing structure which is fair to both client and servers is discussed. The study is carried out by considering a representative demand curve characterizing the relation of price (p) versus the probability (q) that an arriving customer would accept the price and enter the system. The main criterion for deciding pricing and control strategy is revenue obtained by the web service provider. It has been found that by rejecting some customers, it is possible to make the system extremely profitable.
