Game Theory in Myth and Paradox  Alexander Mehlmann An Introduction to GameTheoretic Modelling: Second Edition  Mike MestertonGibbons John von Neumann: The Scientific Genius Who Pioneered the Modern Computer, Game Theory, Nuclear Deterrence, and Much More  Norman Macrae  Game theory provides a mathematical setting for analyzing competition and cooperation in interactive situations. The theory has been famously applied in economics, but is relevant in many other sciences, such as political science, biology, and, more recently, computer science. This book presents an introductory and uptodate course on game theory addressed to mathematicians and economists, and to other scientists having a basic mathematical background. The book is selfcontained, providing a formal description of the classic gametheoretic concepts together with rigorous proofs of the main results in the field. The theory is illustrated through abundant examples, applications, and exercises. The style is distinctively concise, while offering motivations and interpretations of the theory to make the book accessible to a wide readership. The basic concepts and results of game theory are given a formal treatment, and the mathematical tools necessary to develop them are carefully presented. Cooperative games are explained in detail, with bargaining and TUgames being treated as part of a general framework. The authors stress the relation between game theory and operations research. The book is suitable for a graduate or an advanced undergraduate course on game theory. Request an examination or desk copy. This book is published in cooperation with Real Sociedad Matemática Española (RSME). Readership Advanced undergraduates and graduate students interested in game theory. Reviews "If reviewers like a book, they often state that it deserves a place on your bookshelf. This book doesn't deserve such a desolate fate. It deserves a place on your student's desk, preferably with a broken spine from heavy use and densely annotated."  Game and Economic Behavior
