### Game Theory 101: The Mixed Strategy Algorithm

Game Theory 101: The Complete Textbook on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005L7ANWC/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B005L7ANWC&linkCode=as2&tag=gamthe101-20To check for mixed strategy Nash equilibria, we must run the mixed strategy algorithm. This algorithm shows whether there exists a mixed strategy for a player that leaves the other player indifferent between his or her two pure strategies. If such a mixed strategy exists for both players, then those strategies collectively form a mixed strategy Nash equilibrium.The mixed strategy algorithm is the first computationally intensive part of game theory we have encountered. However, we will be using the algorithm quite a bit later on, so do not be worried if the logic of the math is difficult to grasp at first.
