Reflexive games: Transformation of awareness structure

  • A. G. Chkhartishvili
Control in Social Economic Systems


A game-based model of reflexive decision-making is proposed. Reflexive normal form game being repeated several times, some of the agents (or even all of them) are demonstrated to observe unexpected results of the game (e.g., actions of the opponents, values of payoff functions, etc); thus, awareness structure is modifled. We discuss three problems, notably, awareness structure, actions of the agents based on the structure, transformation of awareness structure.
