## Abstract:

We report results on the existence of a Cournot-Nash equilibrium distribution for games in which the action space is not necessarily metrizable and separable and the payoff functions are not necessarily continuous. Our work relies on the theory of Radon measures as developed by Schwartz-Topsoe and on the epitopology as developed by Dolecki-Salinetti-Wets## References
