Abstract

Assume the payoffs of a matrix game are concave in the index of the maximizing player. That player is shown to have an optimal strategy which uses at most two consecutive pure strategies, identifiable through approximate solution of a related continuous game. Generalizations are given, and the results are applied to a motivating hidden-target model due to Shapley.
