Abstract: This thesis studies infinite games with perfect information, i.e.,dynamic games in which players move sequentially. Chapter 1 introduces the subject. In Chapter 2 we consider the class of two-player perfect informationgames with characteristic payoff functions. We define a new solutionconcept for these games. The approach is axiomatic. We prove thedeterminacy for a whole class of perfect information games. In Chapter 3 we introduce infinite perfect-information games with aninfinite number of players. We also define a corresponding notion ofdeterminacy for these games. An application to a simple overlappinggeneration model predicts monetary equilibrium as the only outcomeof the economy. In Chapter 4 we consider an effective version of determinacy forinfinite games with perfect information by combining determinacywith the notion of computability by a Turing machine. We give acharacterization of the determinacy for the class of closed games.
