Unformatted text preview: 0 . Thus, in round 4 0 . Continuing in this fashion, we find that, in equlibrium, each player will choose S any time he is on the move. c. Describe the backward induction outcome of this game for any finite integer k For any finite k, the backward induction outcome is that player 1 chooses S in the first round and each player receives on dollar. Because if neither player choose to step by the end of the kth round, then both players obtain zero 1 0 . 3 Exercise 8­Chapter 15­Watson a. Describe the strategy spaces of the players , 0, ∞ 0, ∞ Each player selects A or B, picks a positive number when (A, B) is chosen, and picks a positive number when (B, A) is chosen.
