We propose a non-model based strategy for locally stable convergence to Nash equilibria in a quadratic noncooperative (duopoly) game with player actions subject to heterogeneous PDE dynamics. In this duopoly scenario where different players use different types of PDEs, one player compensates for a delay (transport PDE) and the other a heat (diffusion) PDE, each player having access only to his own payoff value. In order to compensate distinct PDE-modeled processes in the inputs of the two players, we employ boundary control with averaging-based estimates. We apply a small-gain analysis for the resulting Input-to-State Stable (ISS) coupled hyperbolic-parabolic PDE system as well as averaging theory in infinite dimensions, due to the infinite-dimensional state of the heat PDE and the delay, in order to obtain local convergence results to a small neighborhood of the Nash equilibrium. We quantify the size of these residual sets and illustrate the theoretical results numerically.
