    A noncooperative game governed by a distributed-parameter predator-prey system is considered, assuming that two players control initial conditions for predator and prey, respectively. Existence of a Nash equilibrium is shown under the condition that the desired population profiles and the...

    We investigate how a group of players might cooperate with each other within the setting of a non-cooperative game. We pursue two notions of partial cooperative equilibria that follow a modification of Nash's best response rationality rather than a core-like approach. Partial cooperative Nash...

    This study has established a new perturbed game of the n-person noncooperative game. A new definition of stable set of Nash equilibria is introduced in this way, which called continuously essential set. This study showed that there exists at least one continuously essential component of Nash...

    In this paper, we consider extended Nash equilibriums of nonmonetized noncooperative games. By using a modified fixed point theorem of set-valued mappings on partially ordered sets, we prove an existence theorem of extended Nash equilibriums of the nonmonetized noncooperative game. Finally, an...

    The aim of this paper is to study the concept of properly efficient equilibrium for a multicriteria noncooperative strategic game. Using results of multicriteria optimization programming, we give some characterizations and existence results of this concept in the considered game.

    There are several approaches of sharing resources among users. There is a noncooperative approach wherein each user strives to maximize its own utility. The most common optimality notion is then the Nash equilibrium. Nash equilibria are generally Pareto inefficient. On the other hand, we...

    This paper investigates absorption and global accessibility under perfect foresight dynamics in games with linear incentives. An action distribution in the society is absorbing if there is no equilibrium path escaping from the distribution, and globally accessible if, from every initial...
