B o b Go Stop Abe Go -100, -100 10, 5 Stop 5, 10 5, 5 (a) What are the Nash equilibria of the game? (b) Write down the probability distribution function over strategy profiles corresponding to the mixed strategy Nash equilibrium. (c) Explain how the introduction of a traffic light can be viewed as an instance of a correlated equilibrium. (d) Discuss the merits of the correlated equilibrium over the mixed strategy Nash equilibrium. Exercises 35.1 and 36.1....
