Abstract
We consider a game with a continuum of players where at most a finite number of them are atomic. Objective functions are continuous and admissible strategies may depend on the actions chosen by atomic players and on aggregate information about the actions chosen by nonatomic players. When atomic players have convex sets of admissible strategies and quasiconcave objective functions, a pure strategy Nash equilibria always exists.
