And so, there are equilibrium concepts that explicitly model player's beliefs about where they are in a tree for every information set. Anything goes In the following two extensive games, derive the strategic games and find all the pure-strategy Nash, Subgame-perfect, and Perfect Bayesian Equilibria. Networks: Lectures 20-22 Incomplete Information Incomplete Information In many game theoretic situations, one agent is unsure about the preferences or intentions of others. Obara (UCLA) Bayesian Nash Equilibrium February 1, 2012 6 / 28.

Consider the following game of complete but imperfect information. Reading: Osborne, Chapter 9. stream It is easy enough to solve for the Bayesian Nash equilibrium of this game. Here, I will define sequential equilibrium and apply it to some important games. (When constructing the normal form of each game, be … The problem is that there are usually no proper subgames. Weak Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium • Definition: (δ∗,μ∗) is a Weak Perfect Bayesian equilibrium iff a) the behaviour strategy profile δ∗is sequentially rational given μ∗,and b) wherever possible μ∗is computed from δ∗using Bayes rule. 2. Recall from the answers to the last problem set that (af;dh) is subgame perfect; we see here that it is not weak perfect Bayesian. Problem Set 5 Due: November 21, 2006 Recall that what Osborne calls “Weak Sequential Equilibrium” is equivalent to our “Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium.” 1. endstream endobj 137 0 obj <> endobj 138 0 obj <> endobj 139 0 obj <>/ProcSet[/PDF/Text]/ExtGState<>>> endobj 140 0 obj <> endobj 141 0 obj <> endobj 142 0 obj <> endobj 143 0 obj <>stream tion of perfect Bayesian equilibrium that meets several goals. A weak perfect Bayesian equilibrium for this game is that Player 1 chooses L, Player 2 believes that Player 1 chooses L with probability 1, and Player 2 chooses L™.

Receiver's#beliefs#for#theinfo#set#on#theequilibrium#path:#p=½=1Rp# 2. A semisepa- rating equilibrium also arises when mixed strategies are played. In game theory, a Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium (PBE) is an equilibrium concept relevant for dynamic games with incomplete information (sequential Bayesian games). Recall that: De nition 1 A ebhaviaolr sattrgey for player i is a function i: H i ( A i) such that for any h i H i, the suporpt of i ( h i) is ontacined in the set of actions available at h i. eW now augment a plyear s strategy to explicitly account for his beliefs. Now, we e xtend this notion to the games with incom-plete information. The problem is that there are usually no proper subgames.

No later submissions will be accepted! 0000001218 00000 n The problem is that the set of actions available to agent 1 depends on the state of the world. So (cf;eh) is weak perfect Bayesian. Each type is chosen with equal probability. If strategy sets and type sets are compact, payo functions are We’re headed toward restricting these beliefs in a suitable way. Problems with Weak Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium Example Beliefs are generated by Bayes rule wherever possible 1(S) = 1(S 2) = 0:5 But, notice that P2™s information set is never reached, so we can use Bayes™rule 2(S 1jd) = 2(S 1 \d) 2(d) 2(d) = 0! (For other parameter values, the game has a pooling equilibrium in which the offspring is always quiet and the parent always gives the food.) 2.

ECON 504 Sample Questions for Final Exam Levent Koçkesen Therefore,the set of subgame perfectequilibria is {(Rl,l),(Lr,r),(L3 4 l ⊕ 1 4 r, 1 4 l ⊕ 2 4 r)}. Since this equilibrium reaches every information set, it must be weak perfect Bayesian. But assume that player 1 plays acompletely mixed strategy, playing L, M, and R with probabilities 1 , 3 4, and 4. Each group submits one copy of problem set with the names of all members. This problem addressed by sequential equilibrium, which explicitly requires that the players play a best reply at every information set (sequential rationality) and that the players’ beliefs are "consistent" with the other players’ strategies. Then, the belief on player 2’s information set is well de ned. A simplificationof poker Consider the followingsimplificationof poker.

Since this equilibrium reaches every information set, it must be weak perfect Bayesian. But assume that player 1 plays acompletely mixed strategy, playing L, M, and R with probabilities 1 , 3 4, and 4. Each group submits one copy of problem set with the names of all members. This problem addressed by sequential equilibrium, which explicitly requires that the players play a best reply at every information set (sequential rationality) and that the players’ beliefs are "consistent" with the other players’ strategies. Then, the belief on player 2’s information set is well de ned. A simplificationof poker Consider the followingsimplificationof poker.

The relevant notion of equilibrium will be Perfect Bayesian Equilibria, or Perfect Bayesian Nash Equilibria. In a perfect Bayesian equilibrium, “wherever possible”, beliefs must be computed using Bayes’ rule and the strategies of the players. BNEs and Sequential rationality So far we have learned how to –nd BNEs in incomplete information games. We are doing great! So (af;di) is weak perfect Bayesian. %PDF-1.4 %���� Note that this equilibrium also satis–es requirement 4 because there are no o⁄-the-equilibrium path information sets, so it is also a SPBE. In fact, there is a perfect Bayesian equilibrium where player 1 plays D and player 2 plays U' and player 2 holds the belief that player 1 will definitely play D (i.e player 2 places a probability of 1 on the node reached if player 1 plays D). Now look at Row. On the Agenda 1 Formalizing the Game 2 Systems of Beliefs and Sequential Rationality 3 Weak Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium 4 Exercises C. Hurtado (UIUC - Economics) Game Theory.

Perfect Bayesian (Nash) Equilibria. Problem Set 1 CS 286r beginning of class, Monday 10/1 Preamble You may work in pairs and not discuss this problem set with anyone other than your (optional) partner. In this equilibrium, every strategy is rational given the beliefs held and every belief is consistent with the strategies played. Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium When players move sequentially and have private infor-mation, some of the Bayesian Nash equilibria may involve strategies that are not sequentially rational. (Again, comparing to the answers to the last problem set, we see that this weak PBE is not subgame perfect.) Tip: you can also follow us on Twitter sets offthe path of equilibrium. 3. Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium When players move sequentially and have private infor-mation, some of the Bayesian Nash equilibria may involve strategies that are not sequentially rational. Consider the following game in the normal form: Player 2 C N P Player 1 C 6, 6 0, 7 0, 0 N 7, 0 3, 3 0, 0 P 0, 0 0, 0 1, 1 a) Find all the pure strategy Nash equilibria.

In a PBE, every agent’s strategy should be a best response under the belief system, and the belief system depends on agents’ strategy profile when there is signaling among agents. plausibility order on the set of histories is choice measurable, which is a necessary condition for a PBE to be a SE. There are 2 players: a professor and a student. Problems with Weak Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium Example Beliefs are generated by Bayes rule wherever possible 1(S) = 1(S 2) = 0:5 But, notice that P2™s information set is never reached, so we can use Bayes™rule 2(S 1jd) = 2(S 1 \d) 2(d) 2(d) = 0!

In general, the Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium (PBE) is the concept we are using when solving dynamic games with incomplete information (such as signaling game and repu-tation game). First, it constrains only how individual players update beliefs on consecutive information sets—that is, from one informa-tion set to the next one that arises for the same player—thus lending itself to straightforward application in a way familiar to practitioners. Problem 4: Semiseparating perfect Bayesian equilibrium A semiseparating (or partially separating/pooling) equilibrium is an equilibrium in which some types of Sender send the same message, while some others send some other messages.

And so, there are equilibrium concepts that explicitly model player's beliefs about where they are in a tree for every information set. Anything goes In the following two extensive games, derive the strategic games and find all the pure-strategy Nash, Subgame-perfect, and Perfect Bayesian Equilibria. Networks: Lectures 20-22 Incomplete Information Incomplete Information In many game theoretic situations, one agent is unsure about the preferences or intentions of others. Obara (UCLA) Bayesian Nash Equilibrium February 1, 2012 6 / 28.

In game theory, a Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium (PBE) is an equilibrium concept relevant for dynamic games with incomplete information (sequential Bayesian games). Recall that: De nition 1 A ebhaviaolr sattrgey for player i is a function i: H i ( A i) such that for any h i H i, the suporpt of i ( h i) is ontacined in the set of actions available at h i. eW now augment a plyear s strategy to explicitly account for his beliefs. Now, we e xtend this notion to the games with incom-plete information. The problem is that there are usually no proper subgames.

No later submissions will be accepted! 0000001218 00000 n The problem is that the set of actions available to agent 1 depends on the state of the world. So (cf;eh) is weak perfect Bayesian. Each type is chosen with equal probability. If strategy sets and type sets are compact, payo functions are We’re headed toward restricting these beliefs in a suitable way. Problems with Weak Perfect Bayesian Equilibrium Example Beliefs are generated by Bayes rule wherever possible 1(S) = 1(S 2) = 0:5 But, notice that P2™s information set is never reached, so we can use Bayes™rule 2(S 1jd) = 2(S 1 \d) 2(d) 2(d) = 0! (For other parameter values, the game has a pooling equilibrium in which the offspring is always quiet and the parent always gives the food.) 2.

ECON 504 Sample Questions for Final Exam Levent Koçkesen Therefore,the set of subgame perfectequilibria is {(Rl,l),(Lr,r),(L3 4 l ⊕ 1 4 r, 1 4 l ⊕ 2 4 r)}. Since this equilibrium reaches every information set, it must be weak perfect Bayesian. But assume that player 1 plays acompletely mixed strategy, playing L, M, and R with probabilities 1 , 3 4, and 4. Each group submits one copy of problem set with the names of all members. This problem addressed by sequential equilibrium, which explicitly requires that the players play a best reply at every information set (sequential rationality) and that the players’ beliefs are "consistent" with the other players’ strategies.
