Game Theory

Strategy types are assessed. Identify the dominant strategy and Nash equilibrium

Scenario A Consider the following game: Payoffs are in millions of dollars. Camden Inc. Put Poison Pill In Turbo Tech Dump Cash Assets

Scenario DD Consider the game below: What kind of game is shown in Scenario DD? Dominant Paradox. Dominant game Prisoner's Dilemma Cournot's Duopoly Game It is not possible to tell what kind of game it is because the strategies have not been identified. Nash game **(The numbers should be in a box, with Player B across the top & Strategy B1 & Strategy B2 underneath) Player B Strategy Strategy B1 B2 PlayerA: Strategy A1 600,600 100,1000 Strategy A2 1000,100 200,200 **(Player A should be to the left of the box with Strategy A1, followed by Strategy two just underneath).

Consider two firms, A and B, that produce super computers. Each can produce the next generation super computer for math (M) or for chip research (C). However, only one can successfully produce for both markets simultaneously. Also, if one produces one type, the other might not be able to successfully produce the same type, because of the limited market. The following payoff matrix illustrates the problem. Does a Nash equilibrium exist ? (Answer yes or No). If a nash equilibrium exists, give the payoffs. **(Firm B should be across the top of the rectangle like this, with the numbers inside) Firm B M C Firm A: M 2,1 2,2 C 1,1 3,2

The firm's strategy is explicated. 1. The two leading U.S. manufacturers of high performance radial tires must set their advertising strategies for the coming year. Each firm has two strategies available: maintain current advertising or increase advertising by 15%. The strategies available to the two firms, G and B, are presented in the payoff matrix below. Firm B Increase Adv. Maintain Adv. Firm G Increase Adv. 27, 27 50, 12 Maintain Adv. 12, 50 45, 45 The entries in the individual cells are profits measured in millions of dollars. Firm G's outcome is listed before the comma, and Firm B's outcome is listed after the comma. Is there a dominant strategy for each firm? (Answer: Yes or No) What is it?

In game theory, a dominant strategy refers to a choice: 1. that is the best response to the strategy selected by another player. 2. that is the best response regardless of the strategy selected by another player 3. that results in the player receiving a higher payoff than any other player. 4. All of the above are cor
