Applied Differential Games
ISBN: 9780306428975 / Angielski / Twarda / 207 str. This book grew out of a set of lecture notes for a one semester course on dynamic game theory held at the University of Technology, Vienna. It is intended primarily at the graduate level for students in operations research, management science, applied mathematics, and eco nomics. I hope that I have been able to give the reader an accessible introduction to the subject of nonzerosum dif ferential games with particular emphasis on applications. It would be irrational to try to re ach total com prehensiveness in a single volume. Therefore, I have resisted the temptation to "overcannibalize"...

States of Consciousness: Models for Psychology and Psychotherapy
ISBN: 9780387327570 / Angielski / Twarda / 261 str. Consciousness has always been a particularly elusive concept and one vigorously argued in the scientific community. This new volume takes on the task of defining normal and altered consciousness in their most relevant clinical terms. In States of Consciousness, Andrzej Kokoszka expands on the pioneering work of J.H. Jackson, offering contemporary models for studying consciousness as it applies to both pathology and normal altered states, e.g., relaxation, sleep, meditation, and hypnosis. He makes clear distinctions between the neuroscientific and... Consciousness has always been a particularly elusive concept and one vigorously argued in the scientific community.

Introduction to Game Theory
ISBN: 9780387942841 / Angielski / Miękka / 252 str. The mathematical theory of games has as its purpose the analysis of a wide range of competitive situations. These include most of the recreations which people usually call "games" such as chess, poker, bridge, backgam mon, baseball, and so forth, but also contests between companies, military forces, and nations. For the purposes of developing the theory, all these competitive situations are called games. The analysis of games has two goals. First, there is the descriptive goal of understanding why the parties ("players") in competitive situations behave as they do. The second is the more...

This book gives an overview of the resulting, dramatic reorganization that has occurred in one of these areas: algorithmic differentiable optimization and equationsolving, or, more simply, algorithmic differentiable programming. The book is aimed at readers familiar with advanced calculus, numerical analysis, in particular...

Moral Calculations: Game Theory, Logic, and Human Frailty
ISBN: 9780387984193 / Angielski / Twarda / 276 str. Are people ever rational? Consider this: You auction off a onedollar bill to the highest bidder, but you set the rules so that the second highest bidder also has to pay the amount of his last bid, even though he gets nothing. Would people ever enter such an auction? Not only do they, but according to Martin Shubik, the game's inventor, the average winning bid (for a dollar, remember) is $3.40. Many winners report that they bid so high only because their opponent "went completely crazy." This game lies at the intersection of three subjects of eternal fascination: human psychology, morality,...

The History of Game Theory, Volume 1: From the Beginnings to 1945
ISBN: 9780415072571 / Angielski / Twarda / 200 str. Game Theory  the formal modelling of conflict and cooperation  first emerged as a recognized field with a publication of John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern's Theory of Games and Economic Behaviour in 1944. Since then, gametheoretic thinking about choice of strategies and the interdependence of people's actions has influenced all the social sciences. However, little is known about the history of the theory of strategic games prior to this publication.

Game Theory: A Critical Introduction
ISBN: 9780415250948 / Angielski / Twarda / 369 str. In recent years game theory has swept through all of the social sciences. Its practitioners have great designs for it, claiming that it offers an opportunity to unify the social sciences and that it it the natural foundation of a rational theory of society. Game Theory is for those who are intrigued but baffled by these claims, and daunted by the technical demands of most introductions to the subject.

Lyapunov Functions in Differential Games
ISBN: 9780415273411 / Angielski / Twarda / 304 str. A major step in differential games is determining an explicit form of the strategies of players who follow a certain optimality principle. To do this, the associated modification of Bellman dynamic programming problems has to be solved; for some differential games this could be Lyapunov functions whose "arsenal" has been supplied by stability theory. This approach, which combines dynamic programming and the Lyapunov function method, leads to coefficient criteria, or ratios of the game math model parameters with which optimal strategies of the players not only exist but their analytical form...
