Title: On Strictly Competitive and Zero-Sum Games
Abstract: This note is concerned with the relationship between two-person zero-sum games and two-person strictly competitive games. Its purpose is to show that, as far as non-cooperative game theory is concerned, the two classes are identical with respect to pure strategies but not with respect to mixed strategies. We also extend the notion of strict competitiveness to mixed strategies and characterize the corresponding class of games.
