Game Theoretical Applications to Economics and Operations Research deals with various aspects of game theory and their applications to Economics and OR related problems. It brings together the contributions of a wide spectrum of disciplines such as Statistics, Mathematics, Mathematical Economics and OR. The contributions include decision theory, shastic games, cooperative and noncooperative games. The papers in the volume are classified under five different sections. The first four sections are devoted to the theory of two-person games, linear complimentarity problems and game theory, cooperative and noncooperative games. The fifth section contains diverse applications of these various theories. Taken together they exhibit a rich versatility of these theories and lively interaction between the mathematical theory of games and significant economic problems.

Editorial Reviews

Contributions from a wide range of disciplines, including statistics, mathematics, mathematical economics, and operations research, to discuss decision theory, stochastic games, cooperative and non- cooperative games, two-person games, the linear complementarity problem and game theory, and of course the applications mentioned in the title. The 22 topics include incidence matrix games, consistency properties of the non-transferable cooperative game solutions, pure strategy Nash equilibrium points in large non-autonomous games, linear complementarity and the irreducible polystochastic game with the average cost criterion when one player controls the transition, and two-level negotiations in bargaining over water. The papers are from a January 1996 conference in Bangalore, India. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
