Does anyone know where I can get a translated copy of Selten's original work on subgame perfection?

  • $\begingroup$ Which original work, and which language? $\endgroup$ – Giskard Mar 28 '18 at 15:30
  • $\begingroup$ Are you looking for a translation of Spieltheoretische Behandlung eines Oligopolmodells mit Nachfrageträgheit? $\endgroup$ – Giskard Mar 28 '18 at 15:33
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, this is what I was originally wanting. Ha $\endgroup$ – user16020 Mar 28 '18 at 15:44
  • $\begingroup$ The list of Selten's publications in his selected works mentions no translation, so I'd guess none exists. $\endgroup$ – Michael Greinecker Mar 28 '18 at 17:42

Do you mean this article?

Selten, R. Reexamination of the perfectness concept for equilibrium points in extensive games, Int J Game Theory (1975) 4: 25.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes this is perfect. Do we not have a translation for his 1965 work on demand inertia or is it simply gated? $\endgroup$ – user16020 Mar 28 '18 at 15:33

    $\begingroup$ The 1975 paper was written in English, the 1965 paper, which introduced SPE, was not. The 1975 paper introduced trembling hands perfection. I can at least assure anyone that nobody but historians of game theory have a need for the 1965 paper. $\endgroup$ – Michael Greinecker Mar 28 '18 at 17:23
  • $\begingroup$ Appreciate the response. Make sense! $\endgroup$ – user16020 Mar 28 '18 at 18:10
  • $\begingroup$ @MichaelGreinecker Thank you for the additional info! $\endgroup$ – Giskard Mar 28 '18 at 22:19
