Since Nash calls for the computation of a real-valued distribution for each player, it seems primae facie to be a quest in continuous mathematics.

Nash (1951) proved that under this extension, every game with a finite number of players, each having a finite set of strategies, has a Nash equilibrium. 8 Any game with a finite set of players and finite set of strategies has a Nash equilibrium of mixed strategies. This theorem will be further discussed and proved for the two player case in Chapter 2. An important special case of 2 player games is zero-sum games, games in which the gain of one player is exactly the loss of the other player. 4.
