Abstract
We consider a twoperson zerosum game with two sets of strategic variables which are related by invertible functions. They are denoted by (sA, sB) and (tA, tB) for players A and B.
We will show that the following four patterns of competition are equivalent, that is, they yield the same outcome.
1. Player A and B choose sA and sB (competition by (sA, sB)).
2. Player A and B choose tA and tB (competition by (tA, tB)).
3. Player A and B choose tA and sB (competition by (tA, sB)).
4. Player A and B choose sA and tB (competition by (sA, tB)).
