Game Theory Evolving: A Problem-Centered Introduction to Modeling Strategic Interaction

The study of strategic action game theory is moving from a formal science of rational behavior to an evolutionary tool kit for studying behavior in a broad array of social settings In this problem oriented introduction to the field, Herbert Gintis exposes students to the techniques and applications of game theory through a wealth of sophisticated and surprisingly fun toThe study of strategic action game theory is moving from a formal science of rational behavior to an evolutionary tool kit for studying behavior in a broad array of social settings In this problem oriented introduction to the field, Herbert Gintis exposes students to the techniques and applications of game theory through a wealth of sophisticated and surprisingly fun to solve problems involving human and even animal behavior Game Theory Evolving is innovative in several ways First, it reflects game theory s expansion into such areas as cooperation in teams, networks, the evolution and diffusion of preferences, the connection between biology and economics, artificial life simulations, and experimental economics Second, the book recognizing that students learn by doing and that most game theory texts are weak on problems is organized around problems, and introduces principles through practice Finally, the quality of the problems is simply unsurpassed, and each chapter provides a study plan for instructors interested in teaching evolutionary game theory.Reflecting the growing consensus that in many important contexts outside of anonymous markets, human behavior is not well described by classical rationality, Gintis shows students how to apply game theory to model how people behave in ways that reflect the special nature of human sociality and individuality This book is perfect for upper undergraduate and graduate economics courses as well as a terrific introduction for ambitious do it yourselfers throughout the behavioral sciences.
