My M.Sc. thesis (english, mathematics,
game theory) - A minority-proof cheap-talk
Abstract:Playing a correlated strategy in a game requires a fair mediator that
confidentially receives some information from the players (their types), makes a
secret lottery and privately recommends each player how to play. In this paper
we deal with the question whether it is possible to play a correlated strategy
without a mediator, using only "cheap-talk" (non-binding, non-verifiable
communication without any influence on payoffs), in a way which is "resistant"
to coordinated deviations of sub-coalitions. Our main result shows a general "cheap-talk" protocol that can implement any correlation, and is resistant to
coordinated deviations of any minority. Furthermore, we show that this protocol
is optimal, in the sense that there is no general "cheap-talk" protocol that is
resistant to deviations of half of the players.
