PPAD and Quantum

Today in New York and all over the world Christos Papadimitriou's birthday is celebrated. This is a good opportunity to ask about the relations between Christos' complexity class PPAD (and his other ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Encoding of continuous functions in PPAD

I'm studying the complexity class PPAD (from the seminal 1994 work by Papadimitriou) which contains complete problems such as computing Nash equilibria or finding the fixed point of a Brouwer map. ...

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 ...
