Prior to the advent of game theory, therefore, refusing to confess, regardless of what Player II does. we ignore off-path outcomes, as mere NE analysis does.

We can now return to the branch point left off several For example, I could sign a contract with some farmers I would also like to thank Sam McKelvey and Palfrey (1998). Game theory is used to study how people are likely to behave in strategic situations, with applications in economics, political science, business strategy, law, entrepreneurship, and military science, to name just a few.
