Reflexion and Control: Mathematical Models

Reflexion and Control: Mathematical Models

Dmitry A. Novikov, Alexander G. Chkhartishvili

March 03, 2014

This book is dedicated to modern approaches to mathematical modeling of reflexive processes in control. The authors consider reflexive games that describe the gametheoretical interaction of agents making decisions based on a hierarchy of beliefs regarding (1) essential parameters (informational...

Mathematical Card Magic: Fifty-Two New Effects

Colm Mulcahy

September 04, 2013

Mathematical card effects offer both beginning and experienced magicians an opportunity to entertain with a minimum of props. Featuring mostly original creations, Mathematical Card Magic: Fifty-Two New Effects presents an entertaining look at new mathematically based card tricks. Each chapter...

Game Design Theory: A New Philosophy for Understanding Games

Game Design Theory: A New Philosophy for Understanding Games

Keith Burgun

August 13, 2012

Despite the proliferation of video games in the twenty-first century, the theory of game design is largely underdeveloped, leaving designers on their own to understand what games really are. Helping you produce better games, Game Design Theory: A New Philosophy for Understanding Games presents...

Distributed Strategic Learning for Wireless Engineers

Distributed Strategic Learning for Wireless Engineers

Hamidou Tembine

May 18, 2012

Although valued for its ability to allow teams to collaborate and foster coalitional behaviors among the participants, game theory’s application to networking systems is not without challenges. Distributed Strategic Learning for Wireless Engineers illuminates the promise of learning in dynamic...

Games, Puzzles, and Computation

Games, Puzzles, and Computation

Robert A. Hearn, Erik D. Demaine

June 30, 2009

The authors show that there are underlying mathematical reasons for why games and puzzles are challenging (and perhaps why they are so much fun). They also show that games and puzzles can serve as powerful models of computation—quite different from the usual models of automata and circuits—offering...

The Presidential Election Game, Second Edition

The Presidential Election Game, Second Edition

Steven J. Brams

November 30, 2007

The Presidential Election Game may change the way you think about presidential elections and, for that matter, American politics in general. It is not filled with statistics about the voting behavior of citizens, nor does it give detailed histories of past campaigns. Rather, it is an analytic...

Lessons in Play: An Introduction to Combinatorial Game Theory

Lessons in Play: An Introduction to Combinatorial Game Theory

Michael Albert, Richard Nowakowski, David Wolfe

July 02, 2007

Combinatorial games are games of pure strategy involving two players, with perfect information and no element of chance. Starting from the very basics of gameplay and strategy, the authors cover a wide range of topics, from game algebra to special classes of games. Classic techniques are introduced...

Connection Games: Variations on a Theme

Connection Games: Variations on a Theme

Cameron Browne

January 03, 2005

A comprehensive study of the connection game genre, Connection Games provides a survey of known connection games while exploring common themes and strategies. This book aims to impose some structure on this increasingly large family of games, and to define exactly what constitutes a connection game...

Luck, Logic, and White Lies: The Mathematics of Games

Luck, Logic, and White Lies: The Mathematics of Games

Jörg Bewersdorff

December 10, 2004

The mathematical underpinnings of games, whether they are strategic or games of chance, have been known for centuries, but are usually only understood by players and aficionados who have a background in mathematics. The author has succeeded in making that knowledge accessible, entertaining, and...
