# Question: What Are Pure Strategies?

## What is a pure strategy equilibrium?

In plain terms, a pure Nash equilibrium is a strategy profile in which no player would benefit by deviating, given that all other players don’t deviate.

Some games have multiple pure Nash equilib ria and some games do not have any pure Nash equilibria..

## What is pure strategy and mixed strategy?

If a player randomly chooses a pure strategy, we say that the player is using a “mixed strategy.” In a pure strategy a player chooses an action for sure, whereas in a mixed strategy, he chooses a probability distribution over the set of actions available to him.

## What is pure strategy in operation research?

In a pure strategy, players adopt a strategy that provides the best payoffs. In other words, a pure strategy is the one that provides maximum profit or the best outcome to players. Therefore, it is regarded as the best strategy for every player of the game.

## How many pure strategies are available to each player?

1 strategyA pure strategy profile for the game will contain exactly 1 strategy for each player.

## How do you know if there is a mixed strategy equilibrium?

You can verify that the row player has the same probability by setting the probability that Row swerves equal to q and computing Column’s expected payoffs. Thus, the probability of a collision is 1/16 in the mixed strategy equilibrium.

## What is a strictly dominated strategy?

-a strictly dominant strategy is that strategy that always provides greater utility to a the player, no matter what the other player’s strategy is; -a weakly dominant strategy is that strategy that provides at least the same utility for all the other player’s strategies, and strictly greater for some strategy.

## What do you mean by mixed strategy?

A mixed strategy is a probability distribution one uses to randomly choose among available actions in order to avoid being predictable. In a mixed strategy equilibrium each player in a game is using a mixed strategy, one that is best for him against the strategies the other players are using.
