Some comments might be in order. = (i) That L (1- A)npn(a,;3) = (I - (1- A)P(a,;3))-l follows from the fact that n=o N (I - (1- A)P(a,;3))(L(l- A)npn(a,;3)) n=O N (L(l- A)npn(a,;3))(I - (1- A)P(a,;3)) n=O while limN-+=(l - A)N+l p N+1(a,;3) = a. N (ii) By definition Q(a,;3):= lim N~l L pn(a,;3), which is called the N-+= n=O Cesaro limit. For later use, it easily follows that P(a,;3)Q(a,;3) = Q(a,;3)P(a,;3) = Q(a, ;3).

1. ASYMPTOTIC STUDY The first approach leads to the "compact case": under natural assumptions on the action spaces and on the reward function the mixed strategy spaces will be compact for a topology for which the payoff function will be continuous. -m=l rm). In the finite case, this reduces to a game with finitely many pure strategies. ii) the A-discounted game rA(z) with initial state Z and payoff equal to the 30 SYLVAIN SORIN discounted sum of the rewards: In this setup the first task is to find conditions under which: - in the two-person zero-sum case the value will exist; it will be denoted respectively by vn(z) and v),(z); - in the I-player case, equilibria will exist; the corresponding sets of equilibrium payoffs will be denoted by En(z) and E),(z).

This question can be answered positively, again using the limit theory. A state is called (c:- ) easy for a player ifthe player can guarantee the value for this game (up to c:) using stationary strategies. Theorem 6 Let Smax be the subset of states for which ,",(, the average reward value, is maximal and let Smin be the subset of state for which '"'( is minimal. (i) The states Smax are c:-easy for player 2 and some of the states of Smax are easy for player 1. (ii) The states Smin are c:-easy for player 1 and some of the states of Smin are easy for player 2.
