Games of capacities : a (close) look to Nash Equilibria

  • Romero-Medina, Antonio
  • Triossi, Matteo

The paper studies two games of capacity manipulation in hospital-intern markets. The focus is on the stability of Nash equilibrium outcomes. We provide minimal necessary and sufficient conditions guaranteeing the existence of pure strategy Nash Equilibria and the stability of outcomes.
