Games, Fixed Points and Mathematical Economics
by Christian-Oliver Ewald
Number of pages: 134
These are lecture notes for a course in game theory which the author taught at the University of Kaiserslautern. Game Theory is a formal approach to study games: conflicts where some number of players take part and each one tries to maximize his utility in taking part in the conflict. This text covers general concepts of two person games, Brouwer’s fixed point theorem and Nash’s equilibrium theorem, more general equilibrium theorems, cooperative games and differential games.

This is a book on strategic foundations of the theory of competition. Using insights from game theory, the author develops a model to explain what actually goes on in markets and how a competitive general equilibrium is achieved.

This essay gives a self-contained introduction to quantum game theory, and is primarily oriented to economists with little or no acquaintance with quantum mechanics. It assumes little more than a basic knowledge of vector algebra.

This fascinating look at combinatorial games, that is, games not involving chance or hidden information, offers updates on standard games such as Go and Hex, on impartial games, and on aspects of games with infinitesimal values.
