A constant-sum game always has the same sum of outcomes in the payoff matrix; a variable-sum game has different sums (assuming a finite-period game). © 2010 by Taylor and Francis Group, LLC 38 Applied Game Theory and Strategic Behavior Modeling the Game with MATLAB Below, we show how to model the prisoner’s dilemma using the vector-processing software MATLAB. There are two different ways of modeling games in MATLAB. The first method is to enter the payoff data (and probabilities if any) first, and then run the model based on the definition of the game.

Therefore, he is better off by picking Y. Equilibrium strategies for players in this game are Y for player I and X for player II. We say (Y, X) = (5, 10) is the equilibrium of this game. It is possible that every player in a game has a dominant strategy. Similarly, it is also possible that no player has a dominant strategy. If there is a dominant strategy for each player, then we have a dominant strategy equilibrium for that game. If there is a dominant strategy for only one player, we have a dominant strategy equilibria in a 2-player game.

For complex games, a forward looking approach is a very powerful analytical tool. You should ask where you end up after multiple moves. By utilizing a forward looking method, a player can assess what kind of position he will be in after several moves. Some games are complex because of the high number of strategies available to players. A player needs to assess each strategy carefully, as well as his opponent’s. 8 is an example of such a game. In this game, player P has nine strategies and player Q has six strategies.
