Is there a fundamental link between Nash's equilibrium and Turing's halting problem?

Since Nash equilibrium exists, is there a computational analogue of this equilibrium point? I am trying to approach Nash equilibrium from computational point of view to see if the equilibrium point ...

How do we evalute the difference between a predicted value $\hat{v}$ and the true nash equlibrium value $v$

Consider a bimatrix game problem with matrix $A$ and $B$. The definition of the value $v = [v_1, v_2]$ of the Nash equilibrium $(x, y)$ are as follows, $$v_1 = x^TAy,$$ $$v_2 = x^TBy.$$ The situation ...

Does one player best responding to sample from a mixed strategy, and the other player minimizing regret converge to a Nash eq in a zero sum game?

It is well-known that in a $2$-player zero sum game if one player plays a regret minimizing mixed strategy, and the other player best-responds at each round to that mixed strategy, we are guaranteed ...

Two-player zero-sum games in extensive form represented as directed acyclic graphs

The following is a way to represent two-player zero-sum games in extensive form. Consider a directed acyclic graph $G$ where each non-terminal vertex is one of 3 types: player 1 vertex, player 2 ...

Is there a tool for finding Nash equilibria in parametric games?

There are a few tools, either online or offline, that could solve (find equilibrium) in a game explicitly given as a real-valued matrix. Such tools are Game Theory Explorer and Gambit. However, as ...
