A thorough revision of a popular text in combinatorial game theory, this second edition reorganizes presentation to make it more widely accessible. The beginning focuses less on technical and more on conceptual material and applications. Still written in a textbook style with supporting evidence and proofs, the authors add many more exercises and examples and implement a two-step approach for some aspects of the material involving an initial introduction, examples, and basic results to be followed later by more technical and abstract results.
Preface. Main Body. Combinatorial Games. Basic Techniques. Outcome Classes. Case Studies I. Sums of Games. Canonical Form. Values of Games. Case Studies II. Impartial Games. Hot Games. All Small Games. Case Studies III. Structure and Algebra. Appendices. Bibliography. Index
