Abstract

We discuss a natural game of competition and solve the corresponding mean field game with common noise when agents’ rewards are rank-dependent. We use this solution to provide an approximate Nash equilibrium for the finite player game and obtain the rate of convergence.

Keywords: Mean Field Games, Competition, Common Noise, Rank-Dependent Interaction, Non-Local Interaction, Strong Formulation
