Zero-sum vs Non-zero-sum

A zero-sum game is a mathematical representation of a situation in which each participant’s gain (or loss) of utility is exactly balanced by the losses (or gains) of the utility of the other participant(s).
Non-zero-sum describes a situation in which the interacting parties’ aggregate gains and losses can be less than or more than zero.
