      Given a multifunction from 𝑋 to the 𝑘-fold symmetric product Sym$_{k}(X)$, we use the Dold–Thom theorem to establish a homological selection theorem. This is used to establish existence of Nash equilibria. Cost functions in problems concerning the existence of Nash equilibria are traditionally multilinear in the mixed strategies. The main aim of this paper is to relax the hypothesis of multilinearity. We use basic intersection theory, Poincaré duality in addition to the Dold–Thom theorem.

    • Nambu structures and associated bialgebroids


      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We investigate higher-order generalizations of well known results for Liealgebroids and bialgebroids. It is proved that $n$-Lie algebroid structures correspond to $n$-ary generalization of Gerstenhaber algebras and are implied by $n$-ary generalization of linear Poisson structures on the dual bundle. A Nambu–Poisson manifold (of order $n$ > 2) gives rise to a special bialgebroid structure which is referred to as a weak Lie–Filippov bialgebroid (of order $n$). It is further demonstrated that such bialgebroids canonically induce a Nambu–Poisson structure on the base manifold. Finally, the tangent space of a Nambu Lie group gives an example of a weak Lie–Filippov bialgebroid over a point.
