Speaker: Krzysztof Apt
Title: On the order of strategy elimination procedures in strategic games
Date: 1 December 2005
Time: 16:00
Location: Room P1.14, Euclides Building, Plantage Muidergracht 24, Amsterdam

We provide elementary and uniform proofs of order independence for various strategy elimination procedures for finite strategic games, both for dominance by pure and by mixed strategies. The proofs follow the same pattern and focus on the structural properties of the dominance relations. They rely on Newman's Lemma and related results on the abstract reduction systems.

The talk is an account of the following article: K.R. Apt, ``Uniform Proofs of Order Independence for Various Strategy Elimination Procedures'', Contributions to Theoretical Economics, 4(1), Article 5, 48 pages, http://xxx.lanl.gov/abs/cs.GT/0403024.
