Catch games: The impact of modeling decisions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

We examine the guarantee levels of the players in a type of zero sum games. We show how these levels depend on the sigma algebras that are being employed on the players' action spaces. We further argue that guarantee levels may therefore also depend on set theoretic considerations. Additionally, we calculate the guarantee levels for finitely additive strategies. The solutions of catch games essentially differ among these setups. We find optimal strategies for almost all cases.
