Product Description


"A superb integration of game theory into individual decision theory. Accessible to non-mathematicians yet sufficiently rigorous."--Felipe Bello, Universidad de Las Americas-Puebla, Mexico

"Games and Decision Making is the best treatment of applying game theory to economics and business decisions. Many of today's complex, multi-layered choices simply cannot be understood without these tools. The text is an outstanding work, not to be missed by people for whom decisions matter."--Jon King President, Commonwealth Consulting, Inc.

"Game theory is an effective tool that helps a businessman determine his options and the effect of taking a certain course of action. Games and Decision Making by Charalambos D. Aliprantis and Subir K. Chakrabarti is an excellent and important work that explains game theory in a practical and meaningful way, in addition to incorporating new findings and innovations."--Bruce A. Cordingley President and CEO, Pedcor Bancorp

"This book fills the need for a calculus based "decision and game theory" book that is appropriate for undergraduates. The material is well motivated, carefully described without being overwhelming, and surprisingly complete. I recommend 1he book to you."--Donald G. Saari, Pancoe Chair of Mathematics, Northwestern University

"This is a remarkably well-written book. The clarity, rigor, and elegance that it shows is obvious in every chapter -- it is a pleasure to read. I would recommend the book for strategy M.B.A. classes and for undergraduate decision making classes."--Nicholas Yanellis, Department of Economics, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

"Games and Decision Making is excellent. It will be useful to instructors who teach advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in decision making and game theory in economics departments, business schools, and may also be of use in undergraduate mathematics classes."--Myrna H. Wooders, Department of Economics, University of Toronto, Department of Economics, University of Warwick
