##### the easiest way to solve problems with a continuous strategy space, is to solve for players’ best response (BR) function. The BR function tells you, for any t−i that the other player chooses, what choice of ti would maximize player i’s payoffs? I.e. BRi(t−i) = t

(a) Often, the easiest way to solve problems with a continuous strategy space, is to solve
for players’ best response (BR) function. The BR function tells you, for any t−i that

. Let’s solve for player 1’s BR function.
i. Suppose t2 < v c . Verify that BR1(t2) = {t1|t1 > t2}.
ii. Next, suppose t2 =

iii. Finally, if t2 >

, what is BR1(t2)?
(b) What is player 2’s BR function?
(c) Now, recall that in a Nash equilibrium, neither player can benefit by deviating. That is,
both players must be playing according to their best response, which can only happen
if t1 ∈ BR1(t2) and t2 ∈ BR2(t1). Find all Nash equilibria in this game. That is, find
all pairs (t

is a best response to t
