Game Theory 101: Best Responses

Game Theory 101: The Complete Textbook on Amazon: pure strategy Nash equilibria was easy when there were only four outcomes. But if there are a lot more outcomes, say 16, going through each of them individually would be far too time consuming. This lesson shows how to find pure strategy Nash equilibria using the best responses method.To illustrate the concept, we use the safety in numbers game.
