On the belief (in-)dependence of sequential equilibria

Carlsson, Hans LU and Wichardt, Philipp C. (2012) In Economics Letters 115(3). p.504-507
Abstract
In this paper, we demonstrate that the existence of sequential equilibria may depend on the players holding beliefs which are tailored to the respective equilibrium but otherwise difficult to justify. We also discuss potential remedies. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
