Description

This revised edition of a popular German textbook provides an accessible introduction to game theory and can be used as a study guide for university students or as a tool for practitioners in game-theoretical modeling. The application of algorithmic game theory to resolve realistic conflict situations is emphasized, and Mathematica is used to obtain both numerical and analytical solutions to game-theoretical models. The accompanying CD-ROM includes notebooks, programs, and exercises with their solutions for each chapter, and topics covered in the text include extensive and normal form games, degeneracy, and equilibrium selection theory.
