The following theorem holds [Ashmanov (1981)] . ˜ be Theorem on representation of a polyhedral set. 4). 6), and C = {x|xA ≤ 0} is convex cone. January 29, 2016 19:45 Game Theory 2nd edition - 9in x 6in b2375-ch01 26 page 26 Game Theory ˜ of This theorem, in particular, implies that if the solution set X ˜ is a convex polyhedron. 4. 7). 7). 8) is introduced in a similar manner. 8)] if cx = min cx (by = max by) and the minimum (maximum) of the function cx(by) is achieved on the set of all feasible solutions.

1n . α2n Suppose Player 1 chooses mixed strategy x = (ξ, 1 − ξ) and Player 2 chooses pure strategy j ∈ N. Then a payoff to Player 1 at (x, j) is K(x, j) = ξα1j + (1 − ξ)α2j . 8) Geometrically, the payoff is a straight line segment with coordinates (ξ, K). Accordingly, to each pure strategy j corresponds a straight line. 8). 5). The point ξ ∗ , at which the maximum of the function H(ξ) is achieved with respect to ξ ∈ [0, 1], yields the required optimal solution x∗ = (ξ ∗ , 1 − ξ ∗ ) and the value of the game vA = H(ξ ∗ ).

Theorem [von Neumann (1928)]. Any matrix game has a saddle point in mixed strategies. Proof. e. aij > 0 for all i = 1, m and j = 1, n. Show that in this case the theorem is true. 2) and its dual problem where u = (1, . . , 1) ∈ Rm , w = (1, . . , 1) ∈ Rn . e. 1) has a feasible solution. 2). 2) y with |y | > 0. 2) have optimal solutions x, y, respectively, and xu = yw = Θ > 0. 3) Consider vectors x∗ = x/Θ and y ∗ = y/Θ and show that they are optimal strategies for the Players 1 and 2 in the game ΓA , respectively and the value of the game is equal to 1/Θ.
