#### Game of Life Cellular Automata

Springer 2010; US$ 189.00In the late 1960s, British mathematician John Conway invented a virtual mathematical machine that operates on a two-dimensional array of square cell. Each cell takes two states, live and dead. The cells' states are updated simultaneously and in discrete time. A dead cell comes to life if it has exactly three live neighbours. A live cell remains... more...

#### A Game-Theoretic Perspective on Coalition Formation
