Game theory attempts to mathematically capture behavior in strategic situations, or games , in which an individual's success in making choices depends on the choices of others (Myerson, 1991). While initially developed to analyze competitions in which one individual does better at another's expense ( zero sum games ), it has been expanded to treat a wide class of interactions, which are classified according to several

Game theory
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search Game theory uses maths to study strategy . Game theory studies more than just board games, sports, and games of luck. It also studies things like business and military decisions. In game theory, people call all of these situations "games." In other words, you can use game theory to study any situation where more than one person makes choices. The players in a game aren't even always people. Players can be people, companies, armies, or other things. Each player wants something: maybe a company wants to make as much money as it can, or a country wants to win a war. Sometimes the players work together, but often they are competing against each other. Game theory is part of economics
change Prisoner's Dilemma
One important game is the prisoner's dilemma . It's an imaginary situation that shows why sometimes people do not cooperate (help each other). Imagine this situation: the police catch two criminals after they committed a crime. The police do not know which person committed the crime and which person just helped. They question the two in separate cells . Each prisoner can either stay silent or betray (hurt) the other by blaming the crime on them. If both stay silent, they only go to jail for 6

Strategy (game theory)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search In game theory , a player's strategy in a game is a complete plan of action for whatever situation might arise; this fully determines the player's behaviour. A player's strategy will determine the action the player will take at any stage of the game, for every possible history of play up to that stage. A strategy profile (sometimes called a strategy combination ) is a set of strategies for each player which fully specifies all actions in a game. A strategy profile must include one and only one strategy for every player. The strategy concept is sometimes (wrongly) confused with that of a move . A move is an action taken by a player at some point during the play of a game (e.g., in chess, moving white's Bishop a2 to b3). A strategy on the other hand is a complete algorithm for playing the game, telling a player what to do for every possible situation throughout the game.
edit Strategy set
A player's strategy set defines what strategies are available for them to play.

Battle of the sexes (game theory)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search For other uses, see Battle of the sexes (disambiguation) Opera Football Opera Football Battle of the Sexes 1 Opera Football Opera Football Battle of the Sexes 2 In game theory battle of the sexes ('BoS'), also called Bach or Stravinsky , is a two-player coordination game . Imagine a couple that agreed to meet this evening, but cannot recall if they will be attending the opera or a football match. The husband would most of all like to go to the football game. The wife would like to go to the opera. Both would prefer to go to the same place rather than different ones. If they cannot communicate, where should they go? The payoff matrix labeled "Battle of the Sexes (1)" is an example of Battle of the Sexes, where the wife chooses a row and the husband chooses a column. In each cell, the first number represents the payoff to the wife and the second number represents the payoff to the husband. This representation does not account for the additional harm that might come from not only going to different locations, but going to the wrong one as well (e.g. he goes to the opera while she goes to the football game, satisfying neither). In order to account for this, the game is sometimes represented as in "Battle of the Sexes (2)". This second representation bears some similarity to the Game of chicken

This game has two pure strategy Nash equilibria , one where both go to the opera and another where both go to the football game. For the first game, there is also a Nash equilibrium in

    Game Theory models and methods John von Neumann Oskar Morgenstern John Nash Game Theory , is a special branch of mathematics which has been developed to study decision making in complex circumstances. T he idea to see business as a game, in the sense that a move by one player sparks of moves by others, runs through modern strategic thinking . It historically dates back to the Talmud and Sun Tzu's writings. However, its contemporary codification is credited to John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern who, in 1944, published Theory of Games and Economic Behavior. In the early 1950s, John Nash generalized these results and provided the basis of the modern field. A rapid rise in theoretical developments led to the founding of the first academic journal devoted to the field by Oskar Morgenstern in 1972. Few corporations nowadays think about their strategy without adding some game theory models or game elements into their strategy process. Game theory can be defined as the study of how people interact and make decisions . This broad definition applies to most of the social sciences, but game theory applies mathematical models to this interaction under the assumption that each person's behavior impacts the well-being of all other participants in the game. These models are often quite simplified abstractions of real-world interactions. While many game theorists certainly enjoy playing games, a "game" is an abstract representation of many serious situations

    Game Theory: Is there an ideal strategy for winning the war on terrorism?
    Before the events of September 11th, my plan was to do October's essay on game theory. After September 11th, I decided to do something mathematical as it relates to the events. My first thought was to focus on rare scares and rare scare mongering that is going on in reaction to the terrorist attacks. I abandoned the idea, for now, for three reasons: 1.) It may seem a bit too insensitive to talk about reactionary policy so soon after the tragedy that caused the policies, 2.) There really is not enough data to prove my case at this point, 3.) beat me to the punch with a well written warning against bad policies So back to the original plan: Game Theory . It seems somewhat appropriate since one of the reasons Game Theory was developed was to help strategize what to do during the "Cold War" and what our policies should be toward the Soviet Union. No doubt Game Theory principles will prove useful in the "War on Terrorism", which has many similarities to the "Cold War" in terms of strategies and objectives. I mentioned in a previous essay that the Game Theory/Cold War relationship can be found in the movies Dr. Strangelove

    Dumbing Us Down
    Have you ever wondered how our form of compulsory education got setup in the way it is? John Taylor Gatto has. He wrote many essays on the subject, a variety of which were collected into a book entitled: " Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Education ." What follows is a list of quotes from his many essays, which have been posted to the web , arranged in a manner as if Gatto wrote the article himself. After you have read these, look at my follow-on article " On Education: Division of Labor, Divide and Conquer for some more thoughts on this question, culled from the minds of such luminaries as R. Buckminister Fuller, Alfred North Whitehead, Adam Smith, and Noam Chomsky. You will be surprised to find out that Adam Smith, generally accepted as the promulgator of the "division of labor" concept, predicted that a worker placed in such a system, would be rendered " as stupid and ignorant as it is possible to become for a human creature to become." So watch out!

    Johari Window
    Known to Self Not Known to Self Known to Others Not Known to Others The Johari Window, named after the first names of its inventors, Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham, is one of the most useful models describing the process of human interaction. A four paned "window," as illustrated above, divides personal awareness into four different types, as represented by its four quadrants: open, hidden, blind, and unknown. The lines dividing the four panes are like window shades, which can move as an interaction progresses.
    In this model, each person is represented by their own window. Let's describe mine:
    1. The "open" quadrant represents things that both I know about myself, and that you know about me. For example, I know my name, and so do you, and if you have explored some of my website, you know some of my interests. The knowledge that the window represents, can include not only factual information, but my feelings, motives, behaviors, wants, needs and desires... indeed, any information describing who I am. When I first meet a new person, the size of the opening of this first quadrant is not very large, since there has been little time to exchange information. As the process of getting to know one another continues, the window shades move down or to the right, placing more information into the open window, as described below.

    They say "life is a game." What this metaphor means, is that in life there are rules, and your role is to play by the rules, attempting to maximize your gains and minimize your losses. When you utter the phrase "life is a game," it is usually in response to some dissatisfaction with the rules such as a personal setback, and is a way of distancing yourself from the emotional impact or the reality of things. A perfect example is the Oscar winning Italian film " Life is Beautiful, " where a father convinces his very young son that being in a concentration camp is only a game.
    Children love to play games. They seem to spontaneously make up rules, and change them at will, just to have fun. As an introduction to game theory, consider this favorite game of children worldwide: American: Paper Scissors Stone Chinese: Ching Chang Polk Japanese: Jan Ken Po Korean: Ra Sham Bo Here are the rules: opponents face each other with a closed right hand fist. Both opponents then chant the three words together in rhythm moving their fists down each time. On the third time, the opponents suddenly open their hands into one of three signs:

    R. Buckminister Fuller (1895-1983)
    attributed much of his inventive genius to the fact that he was a generalist , striving to synergetically integrate ideas from many diverse disciplines into a harmonious whole that was not only novel, but efficient, beautiful, and environmentally friendly. He often wrote and lectured about the limitations of our present educational system. From his essay: "Education Automation," I learned that our present educational system is geared towards specialization , which often leaves the solution of society's most pressing problems to those least able to solve them. How this came to be is explored below.
    The famed mathematician and philosopher Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947) joined Harvard University at age 63, after teaching at the most elite institutions in England, such as Trinity, Cambridge, University College, Imperial College of Science and Technology, among others. He noticed that as Harvard University expanded, it was being organized on a pattern different from the schools in Europe. Americans "apparently" liked the idea of "specialization" and thus the higher centers of learning were organizing their graduate schools into different specialties.
    Whitehead observed that the best and brightest students were being deliberately selected for further training in these new specialized graduate schools. But, as these students/professionals became more and more highly skilled in their particular specialty, he pointed out that they became less and less effective in communicating with students/professionals in other fields. For example, have you ever noticed the difficulty in discussing a problem, say an illness, with a doctor, the expert specialist? One reason is the language, because each specialty develops its own language, or "jargon." Another reason is behavioral. Probably the first word a child learns from a parent is "
