Such a deviating firm tends to benefit from the fact that the other firm (due to the lower incentives induced in the absence of monitoring) produces little output, while the deviator can cheaply implement strong incentives by using monitoring.

The fig ure illustrates that the dry funnel pluviation method gives rise to more significant values of the maximal deviator and consequently much higher resistance to liquefaction, while the wet deposition method yields weaker values of the maximal deviator, with progressive stabilization around a very weak or ultimate stationary value of zero indicating liquefaction of the sample.
