Abstract: Agent-based economic modeling often requires the determination of an initial equilibrium price vector. Calculating this directly requires algorithms of exponential computational complexity. It is known that a partial equilibrium price can be estimated using a median of trades. This paper explores the possibility of a multivariate generalization of this technique using depth functions as well as alternative methods.
