Reciprocal Upper Semicontinuity and Better Reply Secure Games: A Comment

Abstract

A convex, compact, and possibly discontinuous better reply secure game has a Nash equilibrium. We introduce a very weak notion of continuity that can be used to establish that a game is better reply secure and we show that this notion of continuity is satisfied by a large class of games.
