We impose three axioms on refinements of the Nash equilibria of games with perfect recall that select connected closed nonempty subsets, called solutions. Undominated Strategies: Each equilibrium in a solution uses undominated strategies. Backward Induction: Each solution contains a quasiperfect equilibrium. Small Worlds: The solutions of a game are induced by the solutions of any larger game in which it is embedded such that players ’ strategies and payoffs are preserved. For games with two players and generic payoffs these axioms characterize each solution as an essential component of equilibria in undominated strategies, and thus a stable set as defined by Mertens (1989).
