Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the quarter of a century since three mathematicians and game theorists collaborated to create Winning Ways for Your Mathematical Plays, the book has become the definitive work on the subject of mathematical games. Now carefully revised and broken down into four volumes to accommodate new developments, the Second Edition retains the original's wealth of wit and wisdom. The authors' insightful strategies, blended with their witty and irreverent style, make reading a profitable pleasure. In Volume 2, the authors have a Change of Heart, bending the rules established in Volume 1 to apply them to games such as Cut-cake and Loopy Hackenbush. From the Table of Contents: - If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em - Hot Bottles Followed by Cold Wars - Games Infinite and Indefinite - Games Eternal--Games Entailed - Survival in the Lost World

Book News Annotation:

The second edition of this recreational mathematics text, which was originally published in 1982, has been corrected and split into four volumes. This second volume explores strategies for playing combinatorial theory- based games that may continue indefinitely due to infinitely many positions or several consecutive moves, and games in which the last player is declared the loser. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In the second of a four volume set, the authors of the definitive book on mathematical games have a Change of Heart. This carefully revised classic bends the rules of Volume 1 to apply to games that may continue indefinitely or in which "winning" is not necessarily making the last move, such as Cut-cake and Loopy Hackenbush. This essential companion to Volume 1 explores "partizan" games of infinitely many positions and "loopy" unending and impartial games with the same playful tone and rigorous mathematical analysis perfected in the first volume of the classic work.
