Abstract : An example is given of a differential game with integral payoff and continuous terminal payoff that does not have a pure strategy solution. The methods and results of a previous approach (A Variational Approach to Differential Games, Rand Corp., Memorandum RM-2772, 1961) are used to establish the nonexistence of pure strategies.
