Nash Equilibria in Stabilizing Systems

  title={Nash Equilibria in Stabilizing Systems},
  author={Mohamed G. Gouda and Hrishikesh B. Acharya},
The objective of this paper is three-fold. First, we specify what it means for a fixed point of a stabilizing distributed system to be a Nash equilibrium. Second, we present methods that can be used to verify whether or not a given fixed point of a given stabilizing distributed system is aNash equilibrium. Third,we argue that in a stabilizing distributed system,whose fixed points are all Nash equilibria, no process has an incentive to perturb its local state, after the system reaches one fixed… CONTINUE READING
