FINDING ALTERNATE OPTIMAL SOLUTIONS IN A TWO PERSON ZERO-SUM GAME WITH MS-EXCEL

William P Fox

Abstract


Often in game theory there are ties in the value of the game by playing the strategies that produce the “best” or optimal result. In this paper, we provide several two person zero-sum game theory examples that produce alternate optimal solutions to playing the game. Further, we show how MS-Excel can be used to find these alternate optimal solutions.
Keywords: two person zero-sum game, mixed strategies, alternate optimal solutions, linear programming, movement diagram, saddle point method, MS-Excel
