However, subsequent refinements and extensions of the Nash equilibrium concept share the main insight on which Nash’s concept rests: Informally, a strategy profile is a Nash equilibrium if no player can do better by unilaterally changing his or her strategy.

Nash equilibrium

Equiljbre to Nash equilibrium. This game has a unique pure-strategy Nash equilibrium: A famous example of this type of game was called the stag hunt ; in the game two players may choose to hunt a stag or a rabbit, the former providing more meat 4 utility units than the latter 1 utility unit.

Continuous and Discontinuous Games. For A,B 25 is the maximum of the second column and 40 is the maximum of the first row.

Every correlated strategy supported by iterated strict dominance and on the Pareto frontier is a CPNE. Retrieved from ” https: This eliminates all non-credible threatsthat is, strategies that contain non-rational moves in cournoy to make the counter-player change their strategy. However, Nash equilibrium exists if the set of choices is compact with continuous payoff. Consider the graph on the right.


Arrow’s impossibility theorem Aumann’s agreement theorem Folk theorem Minimax theorem Nash’s theorem Purification theorem Revelation principle Zermelo’s theorem. A Course in Game Theory. If the firms do not agree on the standard technology, few sales result.

Mertens stable equilibria satisfy both forward induction and backward induction. Finally in the eighties, building with great depth on such ideas Mertens-stable equilibria were introduced as a solution equuilibre.

The equilibrium is said to be stable.

The prisoner’s dilemma has a similar matrix as depicted for the coordination game, but the maximum reward for each player in this case, a minimum loss of 0 is obtained only when the players’ decisions are different. This said, the actual mechanics of finding equilibrium cells is obvious: The concept of stabilityuseful in the analysis of many kinds of equilibria, can also be applied to Nash equilibria. In games with mixed-strategy Nash equilibria, the probability of a player choosing any particular strategy can be computed by assigning a variable to each strategy that represents a fixed probability for choosing that strategy.

If any player could answer “Yes”, then that set of strategies is not a Nash equilibrium. Suppose then that each player asks themselves: If there is a stable average frequency with which each pure strategy is employed by the average member of the appropriate population, then this stable average frequency constitutes a mixed strategy Nash equilibrium.


For a formal result along these lines, see Kuhn, H. But this is a clear contradiction, so all the gains must indeed be zero. Instead, one must ask what each player would do, taking into account the decision-making of the others.

Nash equilibrium – Wikipedia

John Forbes Nash Jr. The “payoff” of each strategy is the travel time of each route. Note that the payoff depends on the strategy profile chosen, i. The simple insight underlying John Nash’s idea is that one cannot predict the result of the choices of multiple decision makers if one analyzes those decisions in isolation. Nash showed that there is a Nash equilibrium for every finite game: It has also been used to study to what extent people with different preferences can cooperate see battle of the sexesand whether they will take risks to achieve a cooperative outcome see stag hunt.
