A few years after game theory was launched by von Neumann and Morgenstern’s (1944) book, reports of laboratory experiments began to appear. Subsequently a huge number of experiments have been conducted, illuminating many issues relevant to the theory. I discuss selected experimental evidence throughout the book. The theory of Nash equilibrium, as we have seen, has two components: the players act in accordance with the theory of rational choice, given their beliefs about the other players’ actions, and these beliefs are correct.
1 by finding the players’ best response functions. 36 Chapter 2. 1b. 2. In this figure, player 1’s actions are on the horizontal axis and player 2’s are on the vertical axis. 1. ) Player 1’s best responses are indicated by circles, and player 2’s by dots. Thus the circle at (T, C) reflects the fact that T is player 1’s best response to player 2’s choice of C, and the circles at (T, R) and (B, R) reflect the fact that T and B are both best responses of player 1 to player 2’s choice of R. Any action pair marked by both a circle and a dot is a Nash equilibrium: the circle means that player 1’s action is a best response to player 2’s action, and the dot indicates that player 2’s action is a best response to player 1’s action.
1. 1) for the case of two hunters. 1 has been suggested as an alternative to the Prisoner’s Dilemma as a model of an arms race, or, more generally, of the “security dilemma” faced by a pair of countries. The game differs from the Prisoner’s Dilemma in that a country prefers the outcome in which both countries refrain from arming themselves to the one in which it alone arms itself: the cost of arming outweighs the benefit if the other country does not arm itself. 1 A variant of the two-player Stag Hunt that models the “security dilemma”.
