1 Solutions to Problem Set No. 5 1. Represent the game of Marienbad with a starting configuration of 3 matches in each pile in extensive form. Marienbad: There are two piles of matches and two players. The game starts with player 1 and thereafter the players take turns. When it is a player’s turn, he can remove any number of matches from either pile. Each player is required to remove some number of matches if either pile has matches remaining, and he can only remove matches from one pile at a time. The game of Marienbad is a game of perfect information because every information set has a single decision node in it. 2. Use backward induction to solve the game from a configuration of (1,0). What about (2,0) and (3,0)? The player starting at (1,0) loses because she can only remove the last match

### What students are saying

• 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.
