# Game Transformations and Game

@inproceedings{EquivalenceBoudewijn1999GameTA, title={Game Transformations and Game}, author={EquivalenceBoudewijn and Paul Bruin}, year={1999} }

In 1952, Thompson deened four transformations on extensive games, and proved that they leave the reduced normal form intact (a so{ called \adequacy" theorem). Kohlberg&Mertens, in 1986, proposed two additional game transformations. In this paper, I will state and prove adequacy results for all six transformations in a uniform manner. Then, a number of well{known solution concepts will be surveyed. Finally, I will examine the (in)variance of the solution concepts under the game transformations…

### On the Strategic Equivalence of Extensive Form Games

- Economics
- 1994

Abstract It is argued that of Thompson′s four elementary transformations, one (inflate–deflate) does not leave the strategic features of a game unchanged. It is shown, however, that two of the…

### ON THE STRATEGIC STABILITY OF EQUILIBRIA

- Economics
- 1986

A basic problem in the theory of noncooperative games is the following: which Nash equilibria are strategically stable, i.e. self-enforcing, and does every game have a strategically stable…

### Game logic and its applications I

- Philosophy, Computer ScienceStud Logica
- 1996

An infinitary extension of classical predicate logic is adopted as the base logic of the framework, to express the common knowledge concept explicitly and to show the formal undecidability on the playability of a game.

### Knowledge and Equilibrium in Games

- Economics
- 1992

An approach to noncooperative game theory that aims to capture considerations that exercise the minds of real-world strategists to make game theory more immediately accessible to people who are trained in decision theory but who are not "game theorists".

### Epistemic Conditions for Nash Equilibrium

- Economics
- 1995

Sufficient conditions for Nash equilibrium in an 'n'-person game are given in terms of what the players know and believe - about the game, and about each other's rationality, actions, knowledge, and…

### On the evaluation of solution concepts

- Economics
- 1994

It is proposed that solution concepts for games should be evaluated in a way that is analogous to the way a logic is evaluated by a model theory for the language. A solution concept defines a set of…

### Refinements of the Nash equilibrium concept

- Economics
- 1978

Selten's concept of perfect equilibrium for normal form games is reviewed, and a new concept of proper equilibrium is defined. It is shown that the proper equilibria form a nonempty subset of the…
