We introduce the concept of Hamiltonian potential functions for noncooperative open-loop differential games and we characterise sufficient conditions for their existence. We identify a class of games admitting a Hamiltonian potential and illustrate the related properties of their dynamic structure. Then, we offer a preliminary exploration of the construction of potential functions for feedback games. As an illustration, we consider an asymmetric oligopoly game with process innovation.

Abstract

We introduce the concept of Hamiltonian potential functions for noncooperative open-loop differential games and we characterise sufficient conditions for their existence. We identify a class of games admitting a Hamiltonian potential and illustrate the related properties of their dynamic structure. Then, we offer a preliminary exploration of the construction of potential functions for feedback games. As an illustration, we consider an asymmetric oligopoly game with process innovation.
