Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 248)


This is the first in a projected series of papers on solutions to games in matrix and extensive form. The predominant solution concept in the literature is that of the noncooperative equilibrium put forward by Nash (1951).
