In this talk, Dr Andres Perea investigates static games with unawareness, where players may be unaware of some of the choices that can be made. That is, different players may have different views on the game.

Andres proposes an epistemic model that encodes players' belief hierarchies on choices and views, and uses it to formulate the basic reasoning concept of common belief in rationality. He also presents a recursive elimination procedure that yields for every possible view the choices that can rationally be made under common belief in rationality.
