Game Theory Steven Heilman Please provide complete and well-written solutions to the following exercises. Due February 23rd, in the discussion section. Homework 6 Exercise 1. Recall the Game of Chicken is defined as follows. Each player chooses to chicken out (C) by swerving away, or she can continue drive straight (D). Each player would prefer to continue driving while the other chickens out. However, if both players choose to continue driving, catastrophe occurs. The payoffs follow: Player II C D C (6 , 6) (2 , 7) Player I D (7 , 2) (0 , 0) Find all Nash equilibria for the Game of Chicken. Prove that these are the only Nash equilibria. Then, verify that z = 1 / 3 1 / 3 1 / 3 0 is a Correlated Equilibrium. Can you find a Correlated Equilibrium such that both players have a payoff larger than 5? (Hint: when trying to find such a matrix z , assume that z 22 = 0 and z 12 = z 21 .) Exercise 2. In the Game of Chicken, you should have found only three Nash equilibria.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
