This volume presents state-of-the-art surveys, new results, and algorithms that will interest applied mathematicians, control engineers, and operations research specialists. It covers such diverse topics as pursuit-evasion games, viscosity solutions, gambling theory, discounted stochastic games, optimal routing, numerical methods, and others. The volume consists of two parts, with the first dealing with zero-sum differential games and numerical methods, and the second with stochastic and nonzero-sum games, and applications.
