Nash and Stackelberg Games

Jeffrey Pawlick, Quanyan Zhu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we give an introduction to several game-theoretic solution concepts that will be used in this book. The chapter starts by introducing matrix-form strategic games and the concept of Nash equilibrium. We then present extensive-form games and the concept of information sets. Stackelberg games are an important type of extensive-form games. This chapter introduces the structure of the game and the solution concept of Stackelberg equilibrium.
