Editorial Reviews

In the schools where it is taught, game theory usually requires significant knowledge of a particular field and high level mathematics, but Dixit and Skeath have designed this text with a broad scope and chapter summaries and exercises, making it accessible for first year undergrads in any field (with some challenging chapters for mathematically advanced students). Coverage includes basic theory and techniques, classes of games, and specific applications of brinkmanship, voting, auctions, bargaining, and markets. Annotation c.
