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.

This volume testifies to the importance of game theory as a tool to capture the concepts of strategy, interaction, argumentation, communication, cooperation and competition. It provides evidence for the richness of game theory and its applications.

Striking an appropriate balance of mathematical and analytical rigor, this book teaches by example. Learners typically relate better to examples from their own fields, and McCain provides illustrations everyone can relate to.

Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. This text demonstrates the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata.
