@drvinceknight we have to do stuff wrt infinitely repeated games, will the normal form game be similar to the prisoner's dilemma?

So can any normal form game be set as an infinitely repeated game then but the principles of how to deal with IFGs that we learnt wrt the prisoner's' dilemma are the same?

thanks Vince

Don't worry about whether or not the question is dull.

I'm happy to help.

@drvinceknight in the above pic you have the utility of both players players playing the strategy $S_c$ is $\frac{2}{1 - \delta}$. Is the 2 there because of the fact that the payoff for each player is 2?

Only difference is that players minimize as opposed to optimise.

So yeah they get 2 at each repetitions. When you apply discounting and use the formula for a geometric series you get that.

Heading off now but will be around tomorrow if there's anything else I can help with.
