Strategy (in game theory)
A method of action of a player or coalition that is possible under the rules of a strategic game (see Games, theory of). In games in normal form (see Non-cooperative game), the direct description of sets of strategies is part of the "rules" of the game. In a positional game (see also Dynamic game) strategies are not defined directly by the rules of the game, but indirectly on the basis of it. If in a non-cooperative game the choice of strategies is fixed (for example, by an optimality principle), then the game becomes non-strategic (see Cooperative game).
