Studying interval valued matrix games with fuzzy logic. (English) Zbl 1152.91312

Summary: Matrix games have been widely used in decision making systems. In practice, for the same strategies players take, the corresponding payoffs may be within certain ranges rather than exact values. To model such uncertainty in matrix games, we consider interval-valued game matrices in this paper; and extend the results of classical strictly determined matrix games to fuzzily determined interval matrix games. Finally, we give an initial investigation into mixed strategies for such games.
