  • On the Design of Game-Playing Agentsby Eun-Youn Kim; Daniel Ashlock

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2017; US$ 47.96

    Evolving agents to play games is a promising technology. It can provide entertaining opponents for games like Chess or Checkers, matched to a human opponent as an alternative to the perfect and unbeatable opponents embodied by current artificial intelligences. Evolved agents also permit us to explore the strategy space of mathematical games like Prisoner's... more...

  • Stochastic H2/H ? Control: A Nash Game Approachby Weihai Zhang; Lihua Xie; Bor-Sen Chen

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 179.95

    The H? control has been one of the important robust control approaches since the 1980s. This book extends the area to nonlinear stochastic H2/H? control, and studies more complex and practically useful mixed H2/H? controller synthesis rather than the pure H? control. Different from the commonly used convex optimization method, this book applies the... more...

  • Modelling with the Master Equationby Günter Haag

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 106.37

    This book presents the theory and practical applications of the Master equation approach, which provides a powerful general framework for model building in a variety of disciplines. The aim of the book is to not only highlight different mathematical solution methods, but also reveal their potential by means of practical examples. Part I of the book,... more...

  • Groups and Marketsby Hans Gersbach; Hans Haller

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 118.19

    This monograph studies multi-member households or, more generally, socio-economic groups from a purely theoretical perspective and within a general equilibrium framework, in contrast to a sizeable empirical literature.

  • Understanding Collective Decision Makingby Lasse Gerrits; Peter Marks

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

    One of the main challenges facing contemporary society is to understand how people can make decisions together. Understanding Collective Decision Making builds on evolutionary theories and presents an analytical tool to analyse and visualise collective decision making. By combining theoretical research with real world case studies, the authors provide... more...

  • The Econometrics of Multi-dimensional Panelsby Laszlo Matyas

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 153.65

    This book presents the econometric foundations and applications of multi-dimensional panels, including modern methods of big data analysis. The last two decades or so, the use of panel data has become a standard in many areas of economic analysis. The available models formulations became more complex, the estimation and hypothesis testing methods... more...

  • Mathematics Old and Newby Saul Stahl; Paul E. Johnson

    Dover Publications 2017; US$ 24.95
