All yet this type of have been awarded as invited papers in distinct periods I geared up on the seventh Annual convention on financial Dynamics and keep watch over in London, England, through the interval June 26-28, 1985. the 1st article, which includes bankruptcy 1, presents a basic creation to the subject of dynamic and differential online game thought, discusses quite a few noncooperative equilibrium resolution innovations, includ­ ing Nash, Stackelberg, and constant Conjectural adaptations equilibria, and a couple of concerns akin to suggestions and time-consistency. the second one bankruptcy bargains with the position of data in Nash equilibria and the position of management in Stackelberg difficulties. a distinct kind of a Stackelberg challenge is the only within which one dominant participant (leader) acquires dynamic info regarding the activities of the others (followers), and constructs guidelines (so-called incentives) which implement a undeniable form of habit at the fans; bankruptcy three bargains with this type of type of difficulties and provides a few new theoretical effects at the life of affine incentive guidelines. the subject of bankruptcy four is the computation of equilibria in discounted stochastic dynamic video games. the following, for issues of finite nation and selection areas, current algorithms are reviewed, with a comparative examine in their speeds of convergence, and a brand new set of rules for the computation of nonzero-sum video game equilibria is presented.

If the first player cheats anyhow, several outcomes are possible depending on at what point of time he cheats. It is reasonable to assume that after cheating has occurred the game falls back in the Nash mode. The player who can cheat on his announcement has a choice. If he cheats, from then on the Nash mode which is "cheating-proof" is the result. If he does not cheat, he can benefit from the Stackelberg mode and from future possibilities to cheat. After all this player has to compare a cheating gain with a loss in reputation.

The famous result of Simaan and Cruz (1973b) that Bellman's principle of optimality does not generalize to the Stackelberg solution became known as time inconsistency. What is actually the problem? The answer to this question has a technical side and a conceptual side. Technically speaking the problem is that dynamic programming can not be used to find the closed loop no memory Stackelberg solution. Conceptually speaking the problem is that the global Stackelberg decision model yields policies which become suboptimal in the course of the game when reoptimizing is allowed for: in the future there can b~ an incentive to change the policy which was originally established.

Moreover, by Inequality (6), t In(t,e) 1= 1/ [dsn(t,s)lx[e,tfl(s) 11 c, to for all (t,e), to 1 e 1 t 1 t f , where X[e,t f l(s) (7) is the characteris- tic function of [e,t f l. We denote the space of admissible strategies for the leader by r, and let the follower's strategy space be B~2. Let now (u*,v*) E U x V be a pair which is chosen according to some criterion and is considered to be most favourable to the leader. This pair may be defined, for example, as a pair which globally minimizes J 1 (u,v) on U x V, provided such a pair exists.
