Repeated Games

Author: Jean-François Mertens
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316060988
Release Date: 2015-02-02
Genre: Business & Economics

Three leading experts have produced a landmark work based on a set of working papers published by the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics (CORE) at the Université Catholique de Louvain in 1994 under the title 'Repeated Games', which holds almost mythic status among game theorists. Jean-François Mertens, Sylvain Sorin and Shmuel Zamir have significantly elevated the clarity and depth of presentation with many results presented at a level of generality that goes far beyond the original papers - many written by the authors themselves. Numerous results are new, and many classic results and examples are not to be found elsewhere. Most remain state of the art in the literature. This book is full of challenging and important problems that are set up as exercises, with detailed hints provided for their solutions. A new bibliography traces the development of the core concepts up to the present day.

Repeated Games with Incomplete Information

Author: Robert J. Aumann
Publisher: MIT Press
ISBN: 0262011476
Release Date: 1995
Genre: Business & Economics

Winner, Frederick W. Lanchester Prize given by The Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 1995. During the height of the Cold War, between 1965 and 1968, Robert Aumann, Michael Maschler, and Richard Stearns collaborated on research on the dynamics of arms control negotiations that has since become foundational to work on repeated games. These five seminal papers are collected here for the first time, with the addition of "postscripts" describing many of the developments since the papers were written. The basic model studied throughout the book is one in which players ignorant about the game being played must learn what they can from the actions of the others. The original work, done under contract to the United States Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, was intended to tackle the gradual disarmament problem, in which neither player knew what his own payoff would be for any given agreement, because of uncertainty about the other side's arsenal and weapons production technology. But the research soon became much more generalized, covering information concealment and revelation, signaling and learning, and related ideas in any repeated competitive situation. The first four chapters of the book treat the competitive zero-sum side of the theory of repeated games. Chapter five takes up cooperative phenomena where one player may want to signal information to another. An extensive bibliography covers all items mentioned in the main text, in the postscripts, and in the introduction. The bibliography also includes a compilation of published papers and books that refer to the original reports.

Archaeologia Britannica

Author: Edward Lhuyd
Publisher: Celtic Studies Publications
ISBN: 1891271148
Release Date: 2009
Genre: History

Edward Lhuyd's Archæologia Britannica effectively marks the discovery of the Celtic languages and the founding of Celtic Studies. First published in 1707, this was a groundbreaking work in comparative philology, the result of first-hand study of the Celtic languages and an epic four-year journey through the countries where they were spoken. To celebrate the volume's 300th anniversary, Lhuyd's sectional prefaces are republished (alongside translations when these are not in English), together with other documents which elucidate the Archæologia's genesis and reception. Lhuyd's work is placed in its historical context in the introduction and a select bibliography is appended.
