Book Description

15 June 2008 Synthesis Lectures on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (Book 3)
Game theory is the mathematical study of interaction among independent, self-interested agents. The audience for game theory has grown dramatically in recent years, and now spans disciplines as diverse as political science, biology, psychology, economics, linguistics, sociology, and computer science, among others. What has been missing is a relatively short introduction to the field covering the common basis that anyone with a professional interest in game theory is likely to require. Such a text would minimize notation, ruthlessly focus on essentials, and yet not sacrifice rigor. This Synthesis Lecture aims to fill this gap by providing a concise and accessible introduction to the field. It covers the main classes of games, their representations, and the main concepts used to analyze them. Table of Contents: Games in Normal Form / Analyzing Games: From Optimality to Equilibrium / Further Solution Concepts for Normal-Form Games / Games with Sequential Actions: The Perfect-information Extensive Form / Generalizing the Extensive Form: Imperfect-Information Games / Repeated and Stochastic Games / Uncertainty about Payoffs: Bayesian Games / Coalitional Game Theory / History and References / Index

3.0 out of 5 stars Concise but not for begginers 10 March 2013
By lventura - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Actually the title represents exactly what it is, a concise introduction. It's not necessarily for beginners. Certainly it would be better used by people that already know a little of Game Theory. It's not pretended to be a text book; it is more of a companion book with remainders than a textbook with exercises. More examples explained step to step would make more useful for people interested in learning on game theory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent short introduction to game theory 8 November 2012
By David McG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This short (about 100 pages) book is an excellent introduction to game theory. Written for computer science students it is nonetheless accessible to anyone with a bit of mathematics in his/her background that includes elementary matrix and set theory and notation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe a bit technical 14 March 2013
By Ronald P. Ng - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not a math major, and I found many of the mathematical notations a bit daunting. It has many questions, but would appreciate if the author could provide answers at the back of the book.

Very often, concrete examples illustrating the maths behind the ideas could illuminate the mathematical notations to a non-mathematicians, and if the next edition could incorporate that, that will be most helpful to the non-mathmaticians.

The topic of Baysian Games was not covered, which was a bit of a disappointment, as it is one of the books recommended by the professors teaching the course on Game Theory in Coursera, and that subject, Baysian Games was covered in the course, so I was hoping that this book would expend on that topic, but it wasn't covered in this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for beginners 18 February 2013

Good book to get to know a deeper taste in Game Theory for beginners. Even though to acquire the knowledge of it, I recommend to take the author's course in order to fully understand it!
