McKinsey's book is a model of what mathematical exposition SHOULD be (but rarely is). The book appeared in and hence is hopelessly out of date; game theory has undergone significant development in the past few decades.

However, McKinsey's book still offers the clearest introduction to the established "core" materials to be found in any by: An exciting new edition of the popular introduction to game theory and its applications.

Game theory is an excellent topic for a non-majors quantitative course as it develops mathematical models to understand human behavior in social, political, and economic settings.

The variety of applications can appeal to a broad range of students. Additionally, students can learn mathematics through playing games, something many choose to do in their spare time. An introduction to Game Theory - Osborne.

Such analysis is very limited or non-existent in other books on game theory.

"Bezalel Peleg and Peter Sudhölter's book is a welcome addition to any game theory library. The book provides comprehensive coverage of the theory of cooperative games and, as such, would make useful reference book for researchers interested cooperative : Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

This textbook provides an introduction to non-cooperative game theory. The printed version is divided into two volummes: Volume 1 covers the basic concepts, while Volume 2 is devoted to advanced topics.

Volume 1 is divided into two parts: Part I deals with games with ordinal payoffs, while Part II covers games with cardinal payoffs. Game theory is a beautiful subject and this book will teach you how to understand the theory and practically implement solutions through a series of stories and the aid of over 30 book has two primary objectives.(1) To help you recognize strategic games, like the Prisoner's Dilemma, Bertrand Duopoly, Hotelling's Game, the /5().

The following sample chapters are taken from the penultimate draft of the book. Frontmatter and Preface; Introduction. This book systematically presents the main solutions of cooperative games: the core, bargaining set, kernel, nucleolus, and the Shapley value of TU games as well as the core, the Shapley value, and the ordinal bargaining set of NTU games.

The authors devote a separate chapter to each solution, wherein they study its properties in full detail.4/5(1). Game Theory might be better described as Strategy Theory, or Theory of Interactive Decision Making.

A strategic situation involves two or more interacting players who make decisions while trying to anticipate the actions and reactions by others. Game theory studies the general principles that explain how people and organizations act in strategic situations.
