Nash Equilibria in Pure Strategies


  • Abderrahmane Ziad

    (Centre de Recherche en Economie MathÈmatique et EconomÈtrie)


We consider an n-person non-zero-sum non-cooperative game in normal form, where the strategy sets are some closed intervals of the real line. It is shown that if the pay-off functions are continuous on the whole space and if for each pay-off function the smallest local maximum in the strategy variable is a global maximum, then the game possesses a pure strategy Nash equilibrium.
