inverse demand function

Definition

Economics

  • A function representing the relationship between quantity demanded and price, specified for convenience with price as a function of quantity instead of the more usual quantity as a function of price. Thus if a conventional demand function is QD = a - bP, then the inverse demand function is P = (a/b) - QD/b.
