## Definition

Let $G$ be a game.

The **deductive interpretation** of the solution of $G$ treats $G$ in isolation, as a singular event, and, under the assumption that the players are rational, deduces the outcome of $G$ based on the rational model.

## Also known as

Some authors refer to this as the **eductive interpretation**.
