The reduced form of a game

The goal of this paper is twofold. Firstly a short proof of the unicity of the reduced form of a normal form game is provided, using a technique to reduce a game originally introduced by Mertens. Secondly a direct combinatorial-geometric interpretation of the reduced form is described. This description is then used to derive an algorithm for the calculation of the reduced form of a game. © 1998 Elsevier Science B.V.
