Let us compute a payoff to Player 1 at (x∗ , y ∗ ): K(x∗ , y ∗ ) = x∗ Ay ∗ = (xAy)/Θ2 . 3), we have Θ = wy ≤ (xA)y = x(Ay) ≤ xu = Θ. 4) implies that K(x∗ , y ∗ ) = 1/Θ.

Both linear programming problems have a solution (X = Y = ), in which case and Θ = min xu = max yw. x y 2. 10). 3. e. X ∗ = (1/Θ)X, Y ∗ = (1/Θ)Y .

2 × n) game. We shall examine the game in which Player 1 has two strategies and Player 2 has n strategies. The matrix is of the form A= α11 α21 α12 α22 ... α1n . α2n Suppose Player 1 chooses mixed strategy x = (ξ, 1 − ξ) and Player 2 chooses pure strategy j ∈ N. Then a payoff to Player 1 at (x, j) is K(x, j) = ξα1j + (1 − ξ)α2j . 8) Geometrically, the payoff is a straight line segment with coordinates (ξ, K). Accordingly, to each pure strategy j corresponds a straight line. 8). 5). The point ξ ∗ , at which the maximum of the function H(ξ) is achieved with respect to ξ ∈ [0, 1], yields the required optimal solution x∗ = (ξ ∗ , 1 − ξ ∗ ) and the value of the game vA = H(ξ ∗ ).
