An Introduction to Game Theory Part V: Extensive Games with Perfect Information Bernhard Nebel

Motivation So far, all amusements comprised of only one synchronous move by all players Often, there is an entire grouping of moves and player can respond to the moves of alternate players Examples: table games card diversions arrangements connection in a business sector

Example: Entry Game An occupant faces the likelihood of passage by a challenger . The challenger may enter ( in ) or not enter ( out ) . In the event that it enters, the occupant may either give in or battle. The settlements are challenger: 1, occupant: 2 if challenger does not enter challenger: 2, officeholder: 1 if challenger enters and officeholder gives in challenger: 0, occupant: 0 if challenger enters and occupant battles (like chicken – yet here we have a succession of moves!)

Formalization: Histories The conceivable improvements of a diversion can be depicted by an amusement tree or an instrument to develop an amusement tree Equivalently, we can utilize the arrangement of ways beginning at the root: all potential histories of moves possibly limitlessly numerous (vast stretching) conceivably unendingly long

Extensive Games with Perfect Information A broad recreations with flawless data comprises of a non-vacant, limited arrangement of players N = {1, … , n} a set H (histories) of groupings to such an extent that H is prefix-shut if for an interminable arrangement a i i N each prefix of this succession is in H , then the unbounded arrangement is likewise in H arrangements that are not a legitimate prefix of another procedure are called terminal histories and are signified by Z. The components in the groupings are called activities. a player capacity P: H\Z N , for every player i a result capacity u i : Z R A diversion is limited if H is limited An amusement as a limited skyline , if there exists a limited upper destined for the length of histories

Entry Game – Formally players N = {1,2} (1: challenger, 2: occupant) histories H = { , out, in, in, fight, in, give_in} terminal histories: Z = {out, in, fight, in, give_in} player capacity: P() = 1 P(in) = 2 result capacity u 1 (out)=1, u 2 (out)=2 u 1 (in, fight)=0, u 2 (in, fight)=0 u 1 (in,give_in)=2, u 2 (in,give_in)=1

Strategies The quantity of conceivable activities after history h is indicated by A(h). A technique for player i is a capacity s i that maps every history h with P(h) = i to a component of A(h) . Documentation : Write methodology as a grouping of activities as they are to be picked at every moment that meeting the hubs in the amusement tree in broadness first way. Conceivable procedures for player 1: AE, AF, BE, BF for player 2: C,D Note: Also choices for histories that can\'t happen given before choices!

Outcomes The result O(s) of a technique profile s is the terminal history that outcomes from applying the methodologies progressively to the histories beginning with the unfilled one. What is the result for the accompanying procedure profiles? O(AF,C) = O(AF,D) = O(BF,C) =

Nash Equilibria in Extensive Games with Perfect Information A system profile s * is a Nash Equilibrium in a broad amusement with flawless data if for all players i and all methodologies s i of player i : u i (O(s * - i ,s * i )) ≥ u i (O(s * - i ,s i )) Equivalently, we could characterize the vital type of a broad diversion and after that utilization the current thought of Nash harmony for vital recreations.

The Entry Game - again Nash equilibra? In, Give in Out, Fight But why ought to the challenger take the "risk" genuinely that the occupant stirs up some dust? Once the challenger has played "in", there is no point for the occupant to answer with "battle". So "battle" can be viewed as a void danger Apparently, the Nash harmony out, battle is not a genuine "relentless state" – we have disregarded the consecutive way of the diversion

Sub-recreations Let G=(N,H,P,(u i )) be a broad amusement with immaculate data. For any non-terminal history h , the sub-amusement G(h) taking after history h is the accompanying diversion: G\'=(N,H\',P\',(u i \')) with the end goal that: H\' is the arrangement of histories to such an extent that for all h\': (h,h\') H P\'(h\') = P((h,h\')) u i \'(h\') = u i ((h,h\')) what number sub-recreations are there?

Applying Strategies to Sub-amusements If we have a procedure profile s * for the diversion G and h is a history in G, then s * | h is the technique profile after history h, i.e., it is a system profile for G(h) got from s * by considering just the histories taking after h. For instance, let ((out), (battle)) be a system profile for the section amusement. At that point ((),(fight)) is the system profile for the sub-diversion after player 1 played "in".

Sub-amusement Perfect Equilibria A sub-diversion flawless balance (SPE) of a broad diversion with immaculate data is a procedure profile s * to such an extent that for all histories h , the techniques in s * | h are ideal for all players. Note: ((out), (battle)) is not a SPE! Note: A SPE could likewise be characterized as a system profile that actuates a NE in each sub-diversion

1 (2,0) (1,1) (0,2) 2 + - + - + - (2,0) (0,0) (1,1) (0,0) (0,2) (0,0) Example: Distribution Game Two objects of the same kind should be circulated to two players. Player 1 propose an appropriation, player 2 can acknowledge (+) or reject (- ). In the event that she acknowledges, the articles are appropriated as recommended by player 1. Generally no one gets anything. NEs? SPEs? ((2,0),+xx) are NEs ((2,0),- - x) are NEs ((1,1),- +x) are NEs ((0,1),- - +) is a NE Only ((2,0),+++) is a SPE ((1,1),- ++) is a SPE

Existence of SPEs Infinite diversions might not have a SPE Consider the 1-player amusement with activities [0,1) and result u 1 (a) = a. In the event that a diversion does not have a limited skyline , then it may not have a SPE: Consider the 1-player amusement with endless histories to such an extent that the unbounded histories get a result of 0 and all limited prefixes stretched out by an end activity get a result that is relative to their length.

Finite Games Always Have a SPE Length of a sub-amusement = length of longest history Use in reverse affectation Find the ideal play for all sub-diversions of length 1 Then locate the ideal play for all sub-recreations of length 2 (by utilizing the above results) … . until length n = length of amusement diversion has a SPE is not as a matter of course one of a kind – operator my be uninterested about a few results All SPEs can be discovered along these lines!

Strategies and Plans of Action Strategies contain choices for inaccessible circumstances! Why ought to player 1 stress over the decision after A,C on the off chance that he will play B? Can be considered as player 2\'s convictions about player 1 what will happen if by error player 1 picks A

1 (2,0) (1,1) (0,2) 2 + - + - + - (2,0) (0,0) (1,1) (0,0) (0,2) (0,0) The Distribution Game - again Now it is anything but difficult to discover all SPEs Compute ideal activities for player 2 Based on the outcomes, consider activities of player 1

Another Example: The Chain Store Game If we play the passage diversion for k periods and include the result from every period, what will be the SPEs? By in reverse incitement, the main SPE is the one, where in each period (in, give_in) is chosen However, for the officeholder, it could be ideal to play some of the time battle so as to " develop a notoriety " of being forceful.

1 2 1 2 1 2 C 7,5 S 1,0 0,2 3,1 2,4 5,3 4,6 Yet Another Example: The Centipede Game The players move on the other hand Each wants to stop in his turn over the other player halting in the following move However, in the event that it is not ceased in these two periods, this is far and away superior What is the SPE ?

Centipede: Experimental Results This amusement has been played ten times by 58 understudies confronting another adversary every time With experience, diversions get to be shorter However, far away from Nash balance

Relationship to Minimax Similarities to Minimax illuminating the diversion via looking the amusement tree base up, picking the ideal move at every hub and spreading values upwards Differences More than two players are conceivable in the regressive impelling case Not only one number, yet a whole result profile So, is Minimax only an exceptional case ?

Possible Extensions One could add arbitrary moves to broad recreations. At that point there is a unique player which picks its activities haphazardly SPEs still exist and can be found by in reverse affectation. Nonetheless, now the normal utility must be upgraded One could include concurrent moves , that the players can some of the time make moves in parallel SPEs won\'t not exist any longer (basic contention!) One could include " blemished data ": The players are not generally educated about the moves different players have made.

Conclusions Extensive diversions model recreations in which more than one concurrent move is permitted The thought of Nash balance must be refined keeping in mind the end goal to bar farfetched equilibria – those with vacant dangers Sub-amusement immaculate equlibria catch this idea In limited diversions, SPEs dependably exist All SPEs can be found by utilizing in reverse prompting Backward affectation can be seen as a speculation of the Minimax calculation various conceivable extenions are conceivable: simulataneous moves, irregular moves, flawed data
