Abstract

The class of two-person competition games is introduced and analyzed.For any game in this class the set of Nash equilibria is convex, equilibrium strategies are exchangeable, and all Nash equilibria lead to the same payoff vector. Competition games are compared to other competitive environments such as unilaterally competitive games and rivalry games.Moreover, protective behaviour within competitive environments is analyzed.For matrix games it is known that protective strategies pro¯les exactly correspond to proper equilibria.It is shown that this result can be extended to the class of unilaterally competitive games.
