Game Theory and Strategy

Philip D. Straffin, Jr.

TEXTBOOK*

The range of problems discussed is truly extraordinary... The only mathematical background necessary is that found in the college track high school curriculum....Well worth the (small) effort it takes to read this book will hopefully lead to an expansion of game theory into many areas where it is currently underutilized. — Mathematics and Computer Education

By covering many of the basic concepts involving elementary games, power indices, and the Nash equilibrium...his book serves as a quick and nice introduction to the subject...A nice feature is that instead of treating game theory as a spectator sport, the book encourages active participation. — SIAM Review

Game Theory and Strategy is an elegant, crystal-clear expository work. Key concepts are emphasized and clearly explained. — Nature

This important addition to the New Mathematical Library series pays careful attention to applications of game theory in a wide variety of disciplines. The applications are treated in considerable depth. The book assumes only high school algebra, yet gently builds to mathematical thinking of some sophistication. Game Theory and Strategy might serve as an introduction to both axiomatic mathematical thinking and the fundamental process of mathematical modelling. It gives insight into both the nature of pure mathematics, and the way in which mathematics can be applied to real problems.
