In lots of industries the price lists should not strictly proportional to the volume bought, i. e, they're nonlinear. Examples of nonlinear price lists contain railroad and electrical energy schedules and condominium charges for sturdy items and house. the key justification for the nonlinear pricing is the lifestyles of non-public info at the part of customers. within the early papers at the topic, deepest info was once captured both through assuming a finite variety of varieties (e. g. Adams and Yellen, 1976) or by means of a unidimensional continuum of varieties (Mussa and Rosen, 1978). Economics of the unidimen sional difficulties is through now good understood. The unidimensional versions, notwithstanding, don't conceal all of the events of functional curiosity. certainly, frequently the nonlinear price lists specify the cost as a functionality of various features. for instance, railroad price lists spec ify fees in line with weight, quantity, and distance of every cargo. Dif ferent consumers may possibly price each one of those features in a different way, therefore the customer's sort won't commonly be captured through a unidimensional attribute and an issue of multidimensional screening arises. In such types the consumer's deepest info (her style) is captured via an m―dimensional vector, whereas the great produced through the monopolist has n caliber dimensions.
