Section 13.4 addresses information asymmetry among option holders and how it may affect investment strategies. Section 13.5 addresses models dealing with exit. Section 13.6 deals with situations where firms can reduce their capacity utilization to cushion against market downturns. Section 13.7 considers situations where firms make sequential lumpy investment decisions.
