Abstract: This paper provides two conditions of epistemic robustness, robustness to alternative best replies and robustness to non-best replies, and uses them to characterize variants of curb sets in finite games, including the set of rationalizable strategies.

Keywords: epistemic game theory; epistemic robustness; rationalizability; closedness under rational behavior; mutual p-belief
