Equilibrium is the condition of a system in which competing influences are balanced and it may refer to:


  • Economic equilibrium: A conceptual condition in which the influences that determine the behaviour of a specified variable are in balance, and thus exert no pressure for that variable to increase or decrease. [e]
  • General equilibrium: A hypothetical state of a set of inter-related markets such that there is no excess supply nor excess demand in any market (see Equilibrium and disequilibrium). [e]



  • Nash equilibrium: A situation in game theory in which no player can improve his position, given the responses of the other players. [e]
