9780198086109: Introduction to Game Theory

An introduction to game theory, by martin j. Osborne, presents the main principles of game theory and shows how they can be used to understand economic, social, political and biological phenomena. The book introduces in an accessible manner the main ideas behind the theory rather than their mathematical expression. All concepts are defined precisely and logical reasoning is used throughout. The book requires an understanding of basic mathematics but assumes no specific knowledge of economics, political science, or other social or behavioral sciences. Game-theoretic reasoning pervades economic theory and is used widely in other social and behavioral sciences. An introduction to game theory, by martin j.

The book introduces in an accessible manner the main ideas behind the theory rather than their mathematical expression. All concepts are defined precisely and logical reasoning is used throughout. The book requires an understanding of basic mathematics but assumes no specific knowledge of economics, political science, or other social or behavioral sciences. Coverage includes the fundamental concepts of strategic games, extensive games with perfect information and coalitional games; the more advanced subjects of bayesian games and extensive games with imperfect information; and the topics of repeated games, bargaining theory, evolutionary equilibrium, rationalizability and max minimization. The book offers a wide variety of illustrations from the social and behavioral sciences and more than 280 exercises. Each topic features examples that highlight theoretical points and illustrations that demonstrate how the theory may be used.
