Game Theory Evolving: A Problem-Centered Introduction to Modeling Strategic Interaction
First, it reflects game theory’s expansion into such areas as cooperation in teams, networks, the evolution and diffusion of preferences, the connection between biology and economics, artificial life simulations, and experimental economics. Mostafa Sahraei rated it it was amazing Jan 28, Finally, the quality of the problems is simply unsurpassed, gintls each chapter provides a study plan for instructors interested in teaching evolutionary game theory.
And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis does not shy away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places. This comprehensive range of topics, including both classic game theory and system dynamics, sets this book apart from many of its competitors who typically focus on one of both.
Game Theory Evolving
The study of strategic action game theory is moving from a formal science of rational behavior to an evolutionary tool kit for studying behavior in a broad array of social settings. Juan Sagasti rated it really liked it Jul 05, A first difference is that the book has considerably decreased in volume. Chapter eevolving, especially, which lays out the mathematical foundations of the rational actor model, is in my opinion far too heebert and abstract for its position in the book.
Chapters typically start with a brief introduction to the topic at hand, after which increasingly complex problems highlight different aspects of the subject, often deriving key results in the process.
Nick Barr rated it it was amazing Jun 09, Gabe Lopez rated it really liked it Nov 26, Where expert reviewers have heralded the quality the material of the first edition, a reader used to more traditional approaches to textbooks was likely to be frustrated by its lack of a structured story and a somewhat chaotic overall impression.

This second edition starts with two chapters on probability theory, decision theory, and Bayesian decision theory, providing foundations for the third chapter evloving which the basic concepts of game theory are introduced. It will prove to be extremely useful in learning game theory, although for many readers it should probably be supplemented with additional instruction or a more traditional straightforward textbook. Kevin Zollman rated it really liked it Dec 22, Alex Burns rated it really liked it Dec 08, Megan rated it really liked it May 07, In some cases, I find the choices made in this reordering questionable: This book is perfect for upper undergraduate and graduate economics courses as well as a terrific introduction for ambitious do-it-yourselfers throughout the behavioral sciences.
A minor annoyance is that the text does not indicate which problems do jerbert solutions included, leading to much unsuccessful browsing back and forth. Want to Read saving….
Published June 11th by Princeton University Press first published Kevin rated it really liked it May 28, In the final quarter of the book, the emphasis shifts to topics characteristic of evolutionary game theory: In some places it seems that sections have not yet been fully adapted to their new place in the book; sometimes new concepts are used before being introduced, while other concepts are introduced twice.
