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 equilibria for each perturbed game. As a subset of hyperstable set and quasistable set and so on, the continuously essential set is a fwi:her refinement of theN ash equilibria.
