Abstract: 
Coordination Failure Diagnostics (CFD) is a model that analyses real market processes with the help of time pattern analysis and investigates whether they operate efficiently. The CFD cartel-audit should enable the detection of cartels via characteristic market process patterns. This is based on the assumption that existing cartels cause failures in observed process patterns. The CFD cartel-audit attempts to draw conclusions from these patterns in order to find hidden cartels and to engage antitrust agencies inot additional more detailed audits.
