Abstract

This paper proposes correlated perfect equilibrium, a refinement of correlated equilibrium through perturbing the correlation device. In finite games, the set of correlated perfect equilibria is non-empty and is a finite union of convex sets. A dual representation is given. Unlike ``trembling hand'' perfections that perturb individual player actions, correlated perfect equilibrium ensures that players share the same posterior belief over joint strategy profiles even conditional on off-equilibrium events. As such, there is no set inclusion relationship between correlated perfect equilibrium and acceptable equilibrium (Myerson, 1986, International Journal of Game Theory), nor with perfect correlated equilibrium (Dhillon and Mertens, 1996, Journal of Economic Theory).
