Myerson has argued that the Nash equilibrium lies at the foundations
of modern economic thought, and yet the dark computational side of the
concept keeps getting gloomier. We show that playing games under
considerations of risk, disambiguating games via equilibrium selection
a`-la Harsanyi-Selten, and computing equilibria by the homotopy
method, are all rife with very serious complexity impediments.
Joint work with Paul Goldberg and Amos Fiat.
