This text covers the basic concepts and insights of game theory and offers classic examples and applications in a concise format. It provides a serious treatment of contract  an important, but often neglected topic in game theory  with minimal departure from the standard game coverage. Without skimping on mathematical precision, this text presents concepts and applications using the simplest, most straight forward model. This aims to help students understand key ideas and allows them to avoid unnecessary mathematical formality.

For example, to check if one of player 1â€™s strategies dominates another, just scan across the two rows of the payoff matrix, column by column. You do not have to compare the payoffs of player 1 across columns. If the payoff in one row is greater than the payoff in another, and this is true for all columns, then the former strategy dominates the latter. If a strategy is not dominated by another pu...20140309 23:16
For example, to check if one of player 1’s strategies dominates another, just scan across the two rows of the payoff matrix, column by column. You do not have to compare the payoffs of player 1 across columns. If the payoff in one row is greater than the payoff in another, and this is true for all columns, then the former strategy dominates the latter. If a strategy is not dominated by another pure strategy, you then must determine whether it is dominated by a mixed strategy.回应 20140309 23:16

The definition of a strategy (a complete contingent plan) requires a specification of player lâ€™s choice at his second information set even in the situation in which he plans to select O at his first information set. Furthermore, we really will need to keep track of behavior at all information setsâ€”even those that would be unreached if players follow their strategiesâ€”to fully analyze any game.

The definition of a strategy (a complete contingent plan) requires a specification of player l’s choice at his second information set even in the situation in which he plans to select O at his first information set. Furthermore, we really will need to keep track of behavior at all information sets—even those that would be unreached if players follow their strategies—to fully analyze any game. That is, stating that player l’s plan is “O” does not provide enough information for us to conduct a thorough analysis.回应 20140308 15:23
