Ask a question about: Zero Sum Games
Respond to the question: problems with game solver?

There were two related problems with the game solver. One is that the optimal column player strategy was mislabeled as optimal row player strategy. The other is that there were several bugs in the calculation of the value. I believe

I have been using your 2-person, zero-sum game solver for an introductory course in Game Theory. Recently, I input the 4 by 3 matrix: -9,1,-8 0,1,8 9,8,0 8,4,-7 and received the output: Row player's opt strategy is: 0.47,0,0.52 Value of game is: 6905633280 (!!) Surely, there must be a bug in the program. The strategy output is the column player's optimum strategy and the value returned seems to be completely strange. Can you help me with what is going on here? Thank you in advance.

It seems to me that Professor Levine's program for solving 2 person zero- sum games will not handle rational numbers as payoffs. Also, the value of the game returned by the program is not always correct. For example: I entered the [View full text and thread]
