# Reputation and Perfection in Repeated Common Interest Games

@article{Cripps1997ReputationAP, title={Reputation and Perfection in Repeated Common Interest Games}, author={Martin W. Cripps and Jonathan P. Thomas}, journal={Games and Economic Behavior}, year={1997}, volume={18}, pages={141-158} }

Abstract We consider a wide class of repeated common interest games perturbed with one-sided incomplete information: one player (the informed player) might be a commitment type playing the Pareto dominant action. As discounting, which is assumed to be symmetric, and the prior probability of the commitment type go to zero, it is shown that the informed player can be held close to her minmax payoff even when perfection is imposed on the equilibrium.

Reputation with long run players and imperfect

We model a long-run relationship as an infinitely repeated game played by two equally patient agents. In each period, the agents play an extensive-form game of perfect information. There is…

ENDOGENOUS REPUTATION IN REPEATED GAMES

Reputation is often modelled by a small but positive prior probability that a player is a “behavioral type” in repeated games. This paper investigates the source of this reputation by allowing two…

Reputation and Equilibrium Characterization in Repeated Games with Conflicting Interests

- Economics
- 1993

A two-person game is of conflicting interests if the strategy to which player one would most like to commit herself holds player two down to his minimax payoff. Suppose there is a positive prior…

Reputation and Equilibrium Selection in Games with a Patient Player

A single, long-run player plays a simultaneous-move stage game against a sequence of opponents who only play once, but observe all previous play. If there is a positive prior probability that the…

Abstract This paper studies repeated games with a finite number of players, a finite number of actions, discounted payoffs, and perfect recall. The players′ initial expectations are given by a common…

Maintaining a reputation against a long-lived opponent

- Medicine

The extent to which an uncommitted or normal type of patient player can exploit his less patient opponent's uncertainty to maintain a reputation for playing like a commitment type is investigated.

The Folk Theorem in Repeated Games with Discounting or with Incomplete Information

- Economics
- 1986

Any individually rational payoff of a one-shot game can be approximated by sequential equilibrium payoffs of a long but finite game of incomplete information, where players' payoffs are almost certainly as in the one- shot game.

Rational Learning Leads to Nash Equilibrium

Two players are about to play a discounted infinitely repeated bimatrix game. Each player knows his own payoff matrix and chooses a strategy which is a best response to some private beliefs over…
