Abstract:

Several loosely-related essays are considered on the theory of finite, two-person games. The topics are 1 the block decomposition of symmetric games, 2 saddlepoints in matrices having submatrices with saddlepoints, 3 generalized saddlepoints and order matrices, 4 the existence of values in games with almostperfect information, and 5 the nonconvergence of ficitious play in non-zero-sum games. Throughout, there is an emphasis on features of the theory that depend only on the ordering of the payoffs, as opposed to their numerical values. Author
