Abstract : This paper investigates the relationship of certain classes of games with corresponding integral equations. The essential part of the optimal strategies is obtained by solving associated integral equations. Part I treats the general game of timing. The second part examines payoff kernels which are concave on each side of the diagonal x=y. (Author)
