  • Talluri, Kalyan (2003)
    We will call a game a reachable (pure strategy) equilibria game if starting from any strategy by any player, by a sequence of best-response moves we are able to reach a (pure strategy) equilibrium. We give a characterization of ...
  • Nagel, Rosemarie; Bosch-Domènech, Antoni; Satorra, Albert; García Montalvo, José (1999)
    "Beauty-contest" is a game in which participants have to choose, typically, a number in [0,100], the winner being the person whose number is closest to a proportion of the average of all chosen numbers. We describe and ...
  • Hauk, Esther; Hurkens, Sjaak (1999)
    We analyze which normal form solution concepts capture the notion of forward induction, as defined by van Damme (JET, 1989) in the class of generic two player normal form games preceded by an outside option. We find that ...
  • Hogarth, Robin; Karelaia, Natalia (2006)
    Research on judgment and decision making presents a confusing picture of human abilities. For example, much research has emphasized the dysfunctional aspects of judgmental heuristics, and yet, other findings suggest that ...
  • Hogarth, Robin (2006)
    It is well accepted that people resist evidence that contradicts their beliefs. Moreover, despite their training, many scientists reject results that are inconsistent with their theories. This phenomenon is discussed in ...
  • Ganuza, Juan José; Penalva, José S. (2006)
    How much information does an auctioneer want bidders to have in a private value environment? We address this question using a novel approach to ordering information structures based on the property that in private value ...
  • Kohatsu, Arturo; Yamazato, Makoto (2003)
    We study the existence of moments and the tail behaviour of the densities of storage processes. We give sufficient conditions for existence and non-existence of moments using the integrability conditions of submultiplicative ...
  • Cuadras, Xavier; Wright, Randall (1996)
    Models of the exchange process based on search theory can be used to analyze the features of objects that make them more or less likely to emerge as ``money'' in equilibrium. These models illustrate the trade--off between ...
  • Carreras, Miquel; Serra, Daniel (1997)
    The optimal location of services is one of the most important factors that affects service quality in terms of consumer access. On the other hand, services in general need to have a minimum catchment area so as to be ...
  • Forlati, Chiara (2004)
    This paper studies monetary and fiscal policy interactions in a two country model, where taxes on firms’ sales are optimally chosen and the monetary policy is set cooperatively. It turns out that in a two country setting ...
  • Ciccone, Antonio; Costain, James S. (2001)
    Payoff heterogeneity weakens positive feedback in binary choice models in two ways. First, heterogeneity drives individuals to corners where they are unaffected by strategic complementarities. Second, aggregate behaviour is ...
  • López, Rafael (2001)
    In this paper we provide a full characterization of the pure-strategy Nash Equilibria for the p-Beauty Contest Game when we restrict player’s choices to integer numbers. Opposed to the case of real number choices, equilibrium ...
  • Cesa Bianchi, Nicolo; Lugosi, Gábor (1998)
    Sequential randomized prediction of an arbitrary binary sequence is investigated. No assumption is made on the mechanism of generating the bit sequence. The goal of the predictor is to minimize its relative loss, i.e., ...
  • Martin, Alberto (2003)
    Dubey and Geanakoplos [2002] have developed a theory of competitive pooling, which incorporates adverse selection and signaling into general equilibrium. By recasting the Rothschild-Stiglitz model of insurance in this ...
  • Germano, Fabrizio (2003)
    Equivalence classes of normal form games are defined using the geometry of correspondences of standard equilibiurm concepts like correlated, Nash, and robust equilibrium or risk dominance and rationalizability. ...
  • Rubio Varas, M. del Mar; Folchi, Mauricio (2005)
    This paper proposes a nonparametric test in order to establish the level of accuracy of the foreign trade statistics of 17 Latin American countries when contrasted with the trade statistics of the main partners in 1925. ...
  • Alòs, Elisa; León, Jorge A. (2013)
    In this paper we propose a general technique to develop first and second order closed-form approximation formulas for short-time options with random strikes. Our method is based on Malliavin calculus techniques and allows ...
  • Apesteguia, Jose; Ballester, Miguel A. (2007)
    We study the complexity of rationalizing choice behavior. We do so by analyzing two polar cases, and a number of intermediate ones. In our most structured case, that is where choice behavior is defined in universal choice ...
  • Viader, Pelegrí; Paradís, Jaume; Bibiloni, Lluís (2000)
    The approximants to regular continued fractions constitute `best approximations' to the numbers they converge to in two ways known as of the first and the second kind. This property of continued fractions provides a ...
