Chapter 4. Bayesian Games
Assuming that all players know the complete data of the game is unrealistic for many situations involving wireless networks. In Bayesian games, the data of the game are not common knowledge, and the concepts of private (data known to a player that the other players know he has) and secret (data known to a player that the others are unaware of) information are used.
The Harsanyi model is used to describe such games in this book, and a Bayesian, rather than a Nash equilibrium is considered.
The ideas are applied to power control games with a number of transmitters, which transmit over multiple access channels.
