Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The mathematical study of games is an intriguing endeavor with applications that reach beyond chess and poker to economics, business, and even biology. This book presents an easy-to-read introduction to the basic ideas and techniques of game theory. It begins by discussing combinatorial games--a topic often neglected in other texts--then moves to two-person zero-sum games. The final chapter explores the concepts and tools of non-zero-sum games and games with more than two players. Suitable as a textbook, for self-study, and as a reference, this introduction prepares readers for more advanced study of game theory's applications in economics, business, and the physical, biological, and social sciences.

Book News Annotation:

Mendelson (mathematics, emeritus, City University of New York) offers an introduction to basic ideas and techniques of game theory, accessible to those with limited background in mathematics. After a chapter on combinatorial games, focus shifts to two-person zero-sum games and their solution, with presentation of the simplex method, based on linear programming, for solving these games. There is also coverage of non-zero-sum games, games with more than two players, and cooperative game theory. The book will prepare readers for more advanced study of game theory's applications to diverse fields such as economics, business, and biology.
