We show that a set of real numbers is a Sierpiński set if, and only if, it satisfies a selection property similar to the familiar Menger property.

    This paper proposes a two-player, finite-horizon differential game model to analyze joint implementation in environmental projects, one of the flexible mechanisms considered in the Kyoto Protocol. Using a nonlinear specification for the damage costs, we show that, if joint implementation is...

    Decision theory treats models in which a decision maker must choose an information function and a decision function, where the former transforms states of nature into messages, the latter transforms messages into actions, and the ultimate payoff depends upon the state of nature, the message, and...

    We consider a duopolistic industry where the current sales of each firm is proportional to its goodwill stock. The evolution of the latter depends positively on own advertising effort and negatively on competitor’s advertising. A standard assumption in the literature in differential games...

    A game-theoretic model is proposed for the generalization of a discrete-fire silent duel to a silent duel with continuous firing. This zero-sum two-person game is solved in the symmetric case. It is shown that pure optimal strategies exist and hence also solve a noisy duel with continuous...

    In 1951, Dvoretzky, Wald and Wolfowitz (henceforth DWW) showed that corresponding to any mixed strategy into a finite action space, there exists a pure-strategy with an identical integral with respect to a finite set of atomless measures. DWW used their theorem for purification: the elimination...

    We study the properties of finitely complex, symmetric, globally stable, and semi-perfect equilibria. We show that: (1) If a strategy satisfies these properties then players play a Nash equilibrium of the stage game in every period; (2) The set of finitely complex, symmetric, globally stable,...

    We introduce the notion of a dice model as a framework for describing a class of probabilistic relations. We investigate the transitivity of the probabilistic relation generated by a dice model and prove that it is a special type of cycle-transitivity that is situated between moderate stochastic...
