### simultaneous maximization functions for differential games with superlinearity assumption

I'm trying to prove, one of the lemma for the existence of Nash equilibrium, in the notes of Bressan (bressan-non-cooperative differential games). Suppose: 1)for i=1,2 , $U_i\subset\mathbb{R}^m$ ...

### Pursuit-evasion game with n pursuers and one evader

Assume $n$ pursuers ($P_i$) at the vertices of an $n$ sided regular polygon with the evader ($E$) at the centre. For what all $n$ can be the evader be caught? Pursuers and evader have same speed ...

### Pursuit Curve Modification

I've been stuck on this problem of Modified pursuit curve, in which the dog chases the cat with a constant acceleration $a$, starting from rest. The cat moves horizontally with a uniform speed of $v_0$...

### Zero-sum differential game

We consider a zero sum differnetial game. Let $x \in (0, M] \subset \mathbb R_{++}$ denote the state and $(u,v) \in [0,x]$ the control of player 1 and 2 respectively with $u + v \leq x$. Denote the ...

### Nash Equilibrium in Normal game as a result of learning in Stochastic game

Lets have a Cournot oligopoly model. With two competitors, there is one Nash equilibrium. The thought experiment that can lead us to this result is for example the Tatonnement process, where there are ...
