What will they say? - Public Announcement Games
Dynamic epistemic logics describe the epistemic consequences of actions. Public announcement logic, in particular, describe the consequences of public announcements. As such, these logics are descriptive – they describe what agents can do. In this paper we discuss what rational agents will or should do. We consider situations where each agent has a goal, a typically epistemic formula he or she would like to become true, and where the available actions are public announcements. What will each agent announce, assuming common knowledge of the situation? The truth value of the goal formula typically depends on the announcements made by several agents, hence we have a game theoretic scenario. We discuss possible solutions of such public announcement games.
