JOURNAL OF ECONOMIC THE () Cooperative Equilibria in Finite Horizon Noncooperative Supergames JAMES W. FRIEDMAN* Department of Economics, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia It is well known that cooperative outcomes can be supported by noncooperative equilibrium strategy combinations in games Cited by: Analysis.

Non-cooperative games are generally analysed through the framework of non-cooperative game theory, which tries to predict players' individual strategies and payoffs and to find Nash equilibria. It is opposed to cooperative game theory, which focuses on predicting which groups of players ("coalitions") will form, the joint actions that groups will take, and the.

Part I of An Introduction to Game Theory gives a thorough presentation of the non-cooperative theory at a level suitable for undergraduate students. The book contains classical results of strategic games and extensive games with and without perfect information and in addition also a brief introduction to utility : Lars-Åke Lindahl.

Conditions are given for the existence of non-cooperative equilibria of two types: (i) steady state, in which the individual moves of the players converge over time to some s^0 and (ii) balance temptation equilibria of the sort developed by Friedman [6] for games lacking time dependence.

game has a Pareto-optimal max-perfect cooperative equilib-rium (M-PCE); that is, an -PCE for a maximum. We show that M-PCE does well at predicting behavior in quite a few games of interest. We provide further insight into M-PCE, at least in two-player games, by considering another generalization of PCE called cooperative equilibrium (CE).

through contract law).Those are opposed to non-cooperative games in which there is either no possibility to forge alliances or all agreements need to be self-enforcing (e.g.

This paper shows the equivalence between the stable solution set of any cooperative game in characteristic form (G1) and the subgame perfect Nash equilibria in pure strategies of a certain noncooperative game (G2).

Players of G1 are named "agents."

I think a key difference is that in cooperative game theory, players can make binding agreements before playing the game, e.g.

how to share pay-offs. In non-cooperative game theory, on the other hand, agreements are not binding. This translates to. outcomes, in the form of the set of compromises, is sheer unlimited. However, not all outcomes are rational or equally plausible.

By defining so called solution concepts, cooperative game theory tries to characterize the set of outcomes that are, seen from a File Size: KB.

NASH EQUILIBRIUM COMBINATIONS OF (PURE OR MIXED) STRATEGIES. A combination of pure or mixed strategies s1 for agent A1, s2 for agent A2, sn for agent An is a (non-cooperative) Nash equilibrium combination iff while keeping the strategies of the other agents fixed, no single agent Ai could unilaterally increase the utility (or, in cases involving mixed.

This textbook brings together the main developments in non-cooperative game theory from the s to the present. After opening with a number of lively examples, Ritzberger starts by considering the theory of decisions under uncertainty. He then turns to representations of games, first introducing extensive forms and then normal forms.

In particular, sets of players, called coalitions, can make binding agreements about joint strategies, pool their individual agreements and, redistribute the total in a specified way. Cooperative game theory applies both to zero-sum and non-zero-sum games. In non-cooperative game theory, individuals cannot make binding agreements and the unit of analysis is the individual who is concerned with doing as well as possible for himself, subject to clearly defined rules and possibilities.

In cooperative game theory, binding agreements are allowed and the unit of analysis is the group or coalition. This.This paper examines the subgame-perfect equilibria in symmetric 2×2 supergames. We solve the smallest discount factor value for which the players obtain all the feasible and individually rational payoffs as equilibrium payoffs.

We show that the critical discount factor values are not that high in many games and they generally depend on how large the payoff set is compared to the set of Cited by: 1.value each coalition of player can create, while non-cooperative game theory focuses on which moves players should rationally make.

Abstract: This article outlines the differences between cooperative and non-cooperative game theory. It introduces some of the main concepts of cooperative game theory as they apply to strategic management research.
