Equilibria in Infinite Games of Incomplete Information

Oriol Carbonell-Nicolau

Departmental Working Papers from Rutgers University, Department of Economics

Abstract: The notion of communication equilibrium extends Aumann’s [3] correlated equilibrium concept for complete information games to the case of incomplete information. This paper shows that this solution concept has the following property: for the class of incomplete information games with compact metric type and action spaces and payoff functions jointly measurable and continuous in actions, limits of Bayes-Nash equilibria of finite approximations to an infinite game are communication equilibria (and in general not Bayes-Nash equilibria) of the limit game. Another extension of Aumann’s [3] solution concept to the case of incomplete information fails to satisfy this condition.
