Potential games are a special class of games that allow for tractable dynamic analysis. Intuitively, games that are close to a potential game should share similar properties. In this talk, we formalize and develop this idea by quantifying how the dynamical features of potential games extend to near-potential games. Towards this goal, we discuss a novel flow representation of arbitrary finite games as a canonical direct sum decomposition into three components, which we refer to as the potential, harmonic and nonstrategic components.
