Abstract in view of the intractability of finding a nash equilibrium, it is important to understand the limits of approximation in this context a subexponential approximation scheme is known [lmm03], and no approximation better than 1\ over 4 is possible by any algorithm that examines equilibria involving fewer than logn.
