  • Alaoui, Larbi; Janezic, Katharina A.; Penta, Antonio (Elsevier, 2020)
    Recent experiments suggest that level-k behavior is often driven by subjects' beliefs, rather than their binding cognitive bounds. But the extent to which this is true in general is not completely understood, mainly because ...
