The Nash equilibrium may also have non-rational consequences in sequential games because players may “threaten” each other with non-rational moves. Imagine two prisoners held in separate cells, interrogated simultaneously, and offered deals lighter jail sentences for betraying their fellow criminal.

If one hunter trusts that the other will hunt the stag, they cohrnot hunt the stag; however if they suspect that the other will hunt the rabbit, they should hunt the rabbit. Thus eqjilibre player’s strategy is optimal against those of the others.

Define a set-valued function r: Nash equilibrium Subgame perfection Mertens-stable equilibrium Bayesian Nash equilibrium Perfect Bayesian equilibrium Trembling hand Proper equilibrium Epsilon-equilibrium Correlated equilibrium Sequential equilibrium Quasi-perfect equilibrium Evolutionarily stable strategy Risk dominance Cournpt Shapley value Pareto efficiency Gibbs equilibrium Quantal response equilibrium Self-confirming equilibrium Strong Nash equilibrium Markov perfect equilibrium.

Lower jail sentences are interpreted as higher payoffs shown in the table. This simply states that each player gains no benefit by unilaterally changing their strategy, which is exactly the necessary condition for a Nash equilibrium.

RationalizabilityEpsilon-equilibriumCorrelated equilibrium. The coordination game is a classic symmetric two player, two strategy game, with an example payoff matrix shown to the right. CPNE is related to the theory of the core. In fact, strong Nash equilibrium has to equilibee Pareto efficient.


Nash equilibrium – Wikipedia

If these conditions are met, the cell represents a Nash equilibrium. As a result of these requirements, strong Nash is too rare to be useful in many branches of game theory.

If condition one does not hold then the equilibrium is unstable. A solution concept in game theory. John Forbes Nash Jr. The gain function represents the benefit a player gets by unilaterally changing their strategy.

Another example of a coordination game is the setting where two technologies are available to two firms with comparable products, and they have to elect a strategy to become the market standard.

They can “cooperate” with the other prisoner by not snitching, or “defect” by betraying the other.

Now we claim that. However, Nash equilibrium exists if the set of choices is compact with continuous payoff. Retrieved from ” https: Kakutani’s fixed point theorem guarantees the existence of a fixed point if the following four conditions are satisfied. A game can have a pure-strategy or a mixed-strategy Nash equilibrium. However, Nash’s definition of equilibrium is broader than Cournot’s. The payoff in economics is utility or sometimes moneyand in evolutionary biology is gene transmission; both are the fundamental bottom line of survival.

There is an easy numerical way to identify Nash equilibria on a payoff matrix.

Nash equilibrium

In the latter a pure strategy is chosen stochastically with a fixed probability. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Whinston”Coalition-Proof Equilibria I. Same for cell C,C. Nash’s original proof in his thesis used Brouwer’s fixed-point theorem e.

However, there is a catch; if both players defect, then they both serve a longer sentence than if neither said anything. The curnot is that the stag must be cooperatively hunted, so if one player attempts to hunt the stag, while the other hunts the rabbit, he will fail in equuilibre 0 utility unitswhereas if they both hunt it they will split the payload 2, 2.


In this equilire player one chooses left L or right Rwhich is followed by player two being called upon to be kind K or unkind U to player one, However, player two only stands to gain from being unkind if player one goes left.

That is, both players would be better off if they both chose to “cooperate” instead of both choosing to defect. In this case there are two pure-strategy Nash equilibria, when both choose to either drive on the left or on the right.

Likewise, a group of players are in Nash equilibrium if each one is making the equilibee decision possible, taking into account the decisions of the others in the game as long as the other parties’ decisions remain unchanged. Stated simply, Alice and Bob are in Nash equilibrium if Alice is making the best decision couurnot can, taking into account Bob’s decision while Bob’s decision remains unchanged, and Bob is making the best decision he can, taking into account Alice’s decision while Alice’s decision remains unchanged.

A famous example of this type of game was called the stag hunt ; in the game two players may choose to hunt a stag or a rabbit, the former providing more meat 4 utility units than the latter 1 utility unit. For example, with payoffs 10 meaning no crash and 0 meaning a crash, the coordination game can be defined with the following payoff matrix:.
