Game Theory

Preface to the Second Edition, 2014.

  • The main changes made in the second edition of this book are the following two.
    1. Material on the Fictitious Play Algorithm to approximate the value and optimal strategies in two-person zero-sum games has been added in Part II, Chapter 4, Section 6.
    2. The material in Part II, Chapter 7 on Poker Models has been replaced by a more general treatment on Infinite Games, with Poker Models reduced to a single section.
  • All other changes made are for correcting simple errors and misprints and for clarification of certain obscurities. For this we thank many readers.
