Subgame Perfect Equilibrium

This lecture introduces games where players take turns moving.

Takeaway Points

  1. Not all Nash equilibria are sensible in extensive form games.
  2. Players maximize their rewards based off of what they can still obtain, not what they could have obtained.
  3. Subgame perfect equilibrium refines the concept of Nash equilibrium accordingly. We will focus on it in this unit.
