Game Theory and Strategy - 93 edition

Game Theory and Strategy (ISBN10: 0883856379; ISBN13: 9780883856376)
ISBN13: 978-0883856376
ISBN10: 0883856379

Summary: This book is an introduction to mathematical game theory, which might better be called the mathematical theory of conflict and cooperation. It is applicable whenever two individuals-- or companies, or political parties, or nations -- confront situations where the outcome for each depends on the behavior of all. What are the best strategies in such situations? If there are chances of cooperation, with whom should you cooperate, and how should you share the proceeds of
cooperation?

Since its creation by John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern in 1944, game theory has shed new light on business, politics, economics, social psychology, philosophy, and evolutionary biology. In this book, its fundamental ideas are developed with mathematics at the level of high school algebra and applied to many of these fields. Ideals like "fairness" are presented via axioms that fair allocations should satisfy; thus the reader is introduced to axiomatic thinking as well as to mathematical modeling of actual situations.

Brand new. We distribute directly for the publisher. This important addition to the New Mathematical Library series pays careful attention to applications of game theory in a wide variety of discipli ...show morenes. The applications are treated in considerable depth. The book assumes only high school algebra, yet gently builds to mathematical thinking of some sophistication. Game Theory and Strategy might serve as an introduction to both axiomatic mathematical thinking and the fundamental process of mathematical modelling. It gives insight into both the nature of pure mathematics, and the way in which mathematics can be applied to real problems. ...show less
