Behavioral science Specific applications to social science have not been stressed but the methodological relations between game theory decision theory and social science are emphasized throughoutAlthough game theory employs a mathematical approach to conflict resolution the present volume avoids all but the minimum of mathematical notation Moreover the reader will find only the mathematics of high school algebra and of very elementary analytic geometry except for an occasional derivative The result is an accessible easy to follow treatment that will be welcomed by mathematicians and non mathematicians alik. This book although slim is of a textbook for an introductory course on game theory It is by no means a brief read but it has been simplified as much as possible for the layman to readI successfully struggled through in the first chapters tripped up around chapter 8 and continued to be tossed around and into oblivion until the end of chapter 11 chapter 12 is just concluding thoughts on the whole matter I resorted to Googling and watching Youtube videos for extra instruction and elaboration At times it seems that this book gives than you can chew to make sure that you at least get all the flavors before you decide to spit it outOtherwise this book was very well written for its purpose I like a challenging book and this did not dissappointThose that are philosophically inclined will deeply appreciate this book you will begin to see how zero sum games negotiations saddle point

S and even the game of love Typically game theory deals with decisions in conflict situationsWritten by a noted expert in the field this clear non technical volume introduces the theory of games in a way which brings the essentials into focus and keeps them there In addition to lucid discussions of such standard topics as utilities strategy the game tree and the game matrix dominating strategy and minimax negotiated and nonnegotiable games and solving the two person zero sum game the author includes a discussion of gaming theory an important link between abstract game theory and an experimentally oriented. This is a very dated book on game theory but it does have the advantage of being easy to understand and provides some crucial algorithms for solving two person games both zero sum and mixed strategy games It covers games against nature as well It also has the advantage of being very short I recommend this book over Game Theory A Very Short Introduction as a basic short introductory text for non mathematicians like business majors and political science majors

### Summary Two Person Game Theory

Game theory is an intellectual X ray It reveals the skeletal structure of those systems where decisions interact and it reveals therefore the essential structure of both conflict and cooperation Kenneth BouldingThis fascinating and provocative book presents the fundamentals of two person game theory a mathematical approach to understanding human behavior and decision making Developed from analysis of games of strategy such as chess checkers and Go game theory has dramatic applications to the entire realm of human events from politics economics and war to environmental issues business social relationship. Applicable in constrained scenarios with time invariant rules When and where is this useful outside of incredibly simple games

To be clear I've only worked through Chs 1 7 which give a good overview of 2 pp ZSG and prudent solution methods an extension over the history of field read previously Good definitions and worked out examples Much easier to go through discretenumerical Castor Pollux in pure prudent stratminmax solution than extension to variable version for mixed strategy solution

Pretty interesting overall He inserts a lot of his own opinion vaguely disguised as fact which is slightly odd but overall pretty informative
