The infinite duration lying oracle game. (English) Zbl 1290.91033
The authors present a variant of the lying oracle game where the game’s duration is infinite. The way the oracle predicts is by specifying a set \(X\) of lie patterns to which the oracle’s responses must conform (the set \(X\) is known to both the oracle and the player). The main goal is to prove that if \(X\) is a set of lie patterns of infinite length, then the player has a strategy which yields a minimum bounded expected fortune.
