Axiomatic Theory of Equilibrium in Signaling Games with Generic Payoffs

Three axioms from decision theory select sets of Nash equilibria of signaling games in extensive form with generic payoffs. The axioms require undominated strategies (admissibility), inclusion of a

Axiomatic Theory of Equilibrium Selection in Signaling Games with Generic Payoffs

Three axioms from decision theory select sets of Nash equilibria of signaling games in extensive form with generic payoffs. The axioms require undominated strategies (admissibility), inclusion of a

Axiomatic Equilibrium Selection for Generic Two-Player Games

We apply three axioms adapted from decision theory to refinements of the Nash equilibria of games with perfect recall that select connected closed sub- sets called solutions. No player uses a weakly

Axiomatic Theory of Equilibrium Selection for Games with Two Players, Perfect Information, and Generic Payoffs

Three axioms from decision theory are applied to refinements that select connected subsets of the Nash equilibria of games with perfect recall. The first axiom requires all equilibria in a selected

Metastable Equilibria

TLDR
Mertens’ stability and metastability select the same outcomes of generic extensive-form games by imposing homological essentiality, which implies a version of small-worlds satisfying a stronger decomposition property.

INTERVIEW WITH JEAN-FRANÇOIS MERTENS (1946–2012)

Every game theorist knows of Mertens and Zamir (1985)'s universal beliefs space, which gives deep foundations to Harsanyi's model of Bayesian games, and Kohlberg and Mertens (1986)'s strategic

A Prospect Theory-Based Real Option Analogy for Evaluating Flexible Systems and Architectures in Naval Ship Design.

TLDR
This document summarizes current capabilities, research and operational priorities, and plans for further studies that were established at the 2015 USGS workshop on quantitative hazard assessments of earthquake-triggered landsliding and liquefaction in the Czech Republic.

AXIOMATIC EQUILIBRIUM SELECTION

We apply three axioms adapted from decision theory to refinements of the Nash equilibria of games with perfect recall that select connected closed subsets called solutions. Undominated Strategies :

Stable Equilibria - A Reformulation: Part I. Definition and Basic Properties

A reformulation of stable equilibria is given, yielding a number of additional properties like backwards induction while still giving “typically,” i.e., except in “made up” examples, the same

Stable Equilibria - A Reformulation. Part II. Discussion of the Definition, and Further Results

TLDR
An equivalent definition that gets rid of the need to use Hausdorff limits is provided, and a "decomposition axiom" eliminates most of the algebraic possibilities, leaving only the "p-stable" sets, for p zero or prime.

The Small Worlds Axiom for Stable Equilibria

Algebraic Topology

The focus of this paper is a proof of the Nielsen-Schreier Theorem, stating that every subgroup of a free group is free, using tools from algebraic topology.
