**Games in Verification**

by **Moshe Y. Vardi** - **ESSLLI** , **2001**

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.

**Multiagent Systems: Algorithmic, Game-Theoretic, and Logical Foundations**

by **Yoav Shoham, Kevin Leyton-Brown** - **Cambridge University Press** , **2008**

Multiagent systems consist of multiple autonomous entities having different information and diverging interests. This comprehensive introduction to the field offers a computer science perspective, but also draws on ideas from game theory.

**An Introduction to Quantum Game Theory**

by **J. Orlin Grabbe** - **arXiv** , **2005**

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.

**Games of No Chance 3**

by **Michael H. Albert, Richard J. Nowakowski** - **Cambridge University Press** , **2009**

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.

**The Compleat Strategyst: Being a Primer on the Theory of Games of Strategy**

by **John D. Williams** - **RAND Corporation** , **2007**

When this book was originally published in 1954, game theory was an esoteric and mysterious subject. Its popularity today can be traced at least in part to this book, which popularized the subject for amateurs and professionals throughout the world.

**Games of Strategy: Theory and Applications**

by **Melvin Dresher** - **RAND Corporation** , **1961**

This book introduces readers to the basic concepts of game theory and its applications for military, economic, and political problems, as well as its usefulness in decisionmaking in business, operations research, and behavioral science.

**Strategy and Conflict: An Introductory Sketch of Game Theory**

by **Roger A. McCain** - **Drexel University** , **2007**

This document may be useful as a means of making the basic ideas a bit more accessible. The author tried to limit these pages to fairly elementary topics and to avoid mathematics other than numerical tables and a very little algebra.

**Game Theory**

by **Thomas S. Ferguson** - **UCLA** , **2008**

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.

**Graduate-Level Course in Game Theory**

by **Jim Ratliff** , **1997**

Lecture notes from a game-theory course the author taught to students in their second year of the economics PhD program. The material is also helpful to first-year PhD students learning game theory as part of their microeconomic-theory sequence.

**Strategic Foundations of General Equilibrium**

by **Douglas Gale** - **Cambridge University Press** , **2000**

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.

**Games, Fixed Points and Mathematical Economics**

by **Christian-Oliver Ewald** , **2007**

These are lecture notes for a course in game theory. The 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.
