Book Description

Striking an appropriate balance of mathematical and analytical rigor, Strategy and Conflict: A Non-Technical Introduction to Game Theory teaches by example. While Game Theoretic principles are the same across the board, learners typically relate better to examples from their own fields, and McCain provides illustrations everyone can relate to. In addition, the book is organized along the lines of the Karplus Learning Cycle, making it appealing to readers with contrasting learning styles. - This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book serves as an introduction to game theory for students with no prior game theory knowledge, or with limited background in economics and mathematics. It is specifically designed to provide an intuitive and accessible interdisciplinary approach to game theory, while simultaneously exploring cooperative games, repeated play, correlated equilibrium, and a range of applications.
