    Title: Game theory in the social sciences (Book Review). Created Date: 10/9/ AM. Game theory is rapidly becoming one of the cornerstones of the social sciences. The articles gathered here chart the intellectual history of game theory from its place in the Enlightenment tradition, through the explosion of literature in the late s, to issues of current and emerging debates.

    This graduate textbook provides a modern introduction to mathematical Game Theory, including applications to economics, biology, and statistical learning. Topics include Nash equilibrium, rationality, Bayesian games. The book is suitable for students who have completed a degree in mathematics. Game theory deals with questions that are basic to all social sciences; it offers insight into any economic, political, or social situation that involves people with different goals or preferences. This book presents some of the most important models, solution concepts, and resutls of noncooperative and cooperative game theory, as well as the methodological principles that have guided the 5/5(1).

Game Theory in the Social Sciences is what the game theory world has been waiting for for the last 25 years. Since the publication of Games and Decisions by Luce and Raiffa in there has been no book directed specifically at the social scientist that surveys this exciting and dynamic field that underlies so much of today's economic and political by: Game theory is the study of mathematical models of strategic interaction among rational decision-makers.

It has applications in all fields of social science, as well as in logic, systems science and computer ally, it addressed zero-sum games, in which each participant's gains or losses are exactly balanced by those of the other participants. The second edition of Herve Moulin's highly successful book outlines the fundamental concepts of game theory one of the most provocative and fruitful applications of mathematics to the human sciences and demonstrates its uses in economic and political by: Game Theory in the Social Sciences, Volume 1 book.

Not from a sociological point of view, not a personality analysis of people like Aumann or Shapley or Schelling or whoever, but a purely intellectual analysis.

The book covers most topics of interest in game theory, including cooperative game theory. Part I presents introductions to all these topics on a basic yet formally precise level. It includes chapters on repeated games, social choice theory, and selected topics such as bargaining theory, exchange economies, and : Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

The ideas of competition and cooperation are of central interest to many in various areas of the social sciences and management. Book Description. Individuals, firms, governments and nations behave strategically, for good and bad.

Over the last few decades, game theory has been constructed and progressively refined to become the major tool used by social scientists to understand, predict and regulate strategic interaction among agents who often have conflicting interests.

In the surprisingly anodyne jargon of the theory, they ‘play games’. This book offers an introduction to the basic tools of game theory and an overview of a number of applications to real-world cases, covering the areas of economics, politics and international by: 1.

The variety of applications can appeal to a broad range of students. Additionally, students can learn mathematics through playing games, something many choose to do in their spare time. impact of game theory extended to other branches of the social sciences (political science, international relations, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, etc.) as well as to fields outside the social sciences, such as biology, computer science, logic, etc.
