Game Theory

  • The Bounds of Reasonby Herbert Gintis

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Game theory is central to understanding human behavior and relevant to all of the behavioral sciences?from biology and economics, to anthropology and political science. However, as The Bounds of Reason demonstrates, game theory alone cannot fully explain human behavior and should instead complement other key concepts championed by the behavioral... more...

  • Jane Austen, Game Theoristby Michael Suk-Young Chwe

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 22.95

    Game theory?the study of how people make choices while interacting with others?is one of the most popular technical approaches in social science today. But as Michael Chwe reveals in his insightful new book, Jane Austen explored game theory?s core ideas in her six novels roughly two hundred years ago?over a century before its mathematical development... more...

  • Game Theory and Mechanism Designby Y. Narahari

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 192.00

    This book offers a self-sufficient treatment of a key tool, game theory and mechanism design, to model, analyze, and solve centralized as well as decentralized design problems involving multiple autonomous agents that interact strategically in a rational and intelligent way. The contents of the book provide a sound foundation of game theory and mechanism... more...

  • The Language of Game Theoryby Adam Brandenburger

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 127.00

    This volume contains eight papers written by Adam Brandenburger and his co-authors over a period of 25 years. These papers are part of a program to reconstruct game theory in order to make how players reason about a game a central feature of the theory. The program — now called epistemic game theory — extends the classical definition... more...

  • Reflexion and Controlby Dmitry A. Novikov; Alexander G. Chkhartishvili

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 89.95

    This book is dedicated to modern approaches to mathematical modeling of reflexive processes in control. The authors consider reflexive games that describe the gametheoretical interaction of agents making decisions based on a hierarchy of beliefs regarding (1) essential parameters (informational reflexion), (2) decision principles used by opponents... more...

  • Proportional Representationby Friedrich Pukelsheim

    Springer 2013; US$ 69.99

    The book offers a rigorous description of the procedures that proportional representation systems use to translate vote counts into seat numbers. Since the methodological analysis is guided by practical needs, plenty of empirical instances are provided and reviewed to motivate the development, and to illustrate the results. Concrete examples, like... more...

  • Symmetry and Economic Invarianceby Ryuzo Sato; Rama V. Ramachandran

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    Symmetry and Economic Invariance (second enhanced edition) explores how the symmetry and invariance of economic models can provide insights into their properties. Although the professional economist of today is adept at many of the mathematical techniques used in static and dynamic optimization models, group theory is still not among his or her repertoire... more...

  • Microeconomic Theory and Computationby Michael R. Hammock; J. Wilson Mixon

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    Economists can use computer algebra systems to manipulate symbolic models, derive numerical computations, and analyze empirical relationships among variables. Maxima is an open-source multi-platform computer algebra system that rivals proprietary software. Maxima?s symbolic and computational capabilities enable economists and financial analysts to... more...

  • Quantum Variational Calculusby Agnieszka B. Malinowska; Delfim F.M. Torres

    Springer 2013; US$ 54.99

    This Brief puts together two subjects, quantum and variational calculi by considering variational problems involving Hahn quantum operators. The main advantage of its results is that they are able to deal with nondifferentiable (even discontinuous) functions, which are important in applications. more...
