This paper examines the existence of Berge equilibrium. Colmanet al.provide a theorem on the existence of this type of equilibrium in the paper [Colman, A. M., Körner, T. W., Musy, O. and Tazdaït, T. [2011] Mutual support in games: Some properties of Berge equilibria,J. Math. Psychol.55, 166–175]. This theorem has been demonstrated on the basis of a correspondence with Nash equilibrium. We propose to restate this theorem without using Nash equilibrium, and deduce a method for the computation of Berge equilibria.
