### Could there be multiple symmetric equilibriums in a symmetric games?

Given a finite symmetric 2 player game with a strategy space $S$, a (mixed-strategy) symmetric equilibrium is a distribution $d\in \Delta(S)$ such that $(d,d)$ is a Nash equilibrium. A known result ...

### Is there a name for the ratio between the optimal social-welfare equilibrium and the worst social-welfare equilibrium of a strategic game?

Suppose you have a $n$ players strategic game, and assume that the "social-welfare"(SW) of the game is defined as the sum of payoffs to the players. Two well known measures about the "efficiency" of ...

### how to find mixed Nash equilibria for 3x3?

A (3,2)(3,0)(2,2) B (1,0)(3,3)(0,3) C (0,2)(0,0)(3,2) p q 1-p-q So what I have done is : 3p+3q+2(1-p-q)=p+3q q=1 this is when A=B p+3q=3(1-p-q) p=-3/4 this is when B=c I don't know ...

### prove that if $n=k$ then white has a winning strategy in $S_{n,k}$.

Black and white play sequentially the game $S_{n,k}$ with $k,n\in \mathbb N \space 0\leq k\leq n$ the game board consists of all subsets $A\subseteq\{1,2,...,n\}$ such that $1\leq |A|\leq k$. every ...

### Can “tit for tat” strategy be defined in monadic second-order logic?

Prisoner's dilema game can be represented as a game tree, which could be infinite game with corresponding infinite game (binary) tree in common case. There is well-known tit for tat strategy, which ...

### Game theory books on learning e.g. Fictitious play

I'm looking for some text books on learning in game theory. So far I only found The Theory of Learning in Games by Fudenberg and Levine. Are there others you can recommend?
