Abstract
We define a new solution concept for an undiscounted dynamic game  a perfect uniform normalform constantexpectation correlated approximate equilibrium with a canonical and universal correlation device. This equilibrium has the following appealing properties: (1) “Tremblinghand” perfectness  players do not use noncredible threats; (2) Uniformness  it is an approximate equilibrium in any long enough finitehorizon game and in any discounted game with a high enough discount factor; (3) Normalform correlation  The strategy of a player depends on a private signal he receives before the game starts (which can be induced by “cheaptalk” among the players); (4) Constant expectation  The expected payoff of each player almost does not change when he receives his signal; (5) Universal correlation device  the device does not depend on the specific parameters of the game. (6) Canonical  each signal is equivalent to a strategy. We demonstrate the use of this equilibrium by proving its existence in every undiscounted multiplayer stopping game.
