Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. Not only can model-checking algorithms be formulated as games, but the interaction of reactive systems with their environments can also be modeled as a game. The aim of this course is to demonstrate the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata as an underlying technical tool.

This volume pursues the question of the emergence of institutions and hierarchy, analyzes algorithms of strategy change in evolutionary game models, and takes a historical point of view on the development of game theory during the cold war.

Game theory addresses situations with multiple agents in which the outcome of an agent's act depends on the acts of the other agents. The agents may be mindless organisms. Epistemic game theory addresses games in which the agents have minds.

In this text, the author presents various mathematical models of games and study the phenomena that arise. The book covers impartial combinatorial games, two-person zero-sum games, two-person general-sum games, and games in coalitional form.

This is a textbook on non-cooperative Game Theory with 165 solved exercises. It is intended to be rigorous and it includes several proofs. It is appropriate for an undergraduate class in game theory and also for a first-year graduate-level class.
