Epistemic Considerations on Extensive-Form Games

Graduate Center CUNY

In this talk, we discuss several topics in extensive-form games. First, we consider perfect information games with belief revision with players who are tolerant of each other’s “hypothetical” errors. Second, we study imperfect information games with players who have no way of assigning probabilities to various possible outcomes, and we analyze how players might choose in such games. We then look into how a truthful manipulator whose motives are not known to players can create a certain knowledge situation about a game, and change the way the game will be played.
