Game Theory Evolving
Daniel rated it it was amazing Jul 16, In this problem-oriented introduction to the field, Herbert Gintis exposes students to the techniques and applications of game theory through a wealth of sophisticated and surprisingly fun-to 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.
Finally, the quality of the problems is simply unsurpassed, and each chapter provides a study plan for instructors interested in teaching evolutionary game theory.

This is certainly not an approach to please everyone.
This book is not yet featured on Listopia.
What has changed as compared to the first edition? Some of these are rather sketchy, which can be frustrating to readers studying independently.
In this problem-oriented introduction to the field, Herbert Gintis exposes students to the techniques and applications of game theory through a wealth of sophisticated and surprisingly fun-to-solve problems involving human and even animal behavior.
The problems cover a broad range of important applications in economics, gwme social sciences, and the life sciences. Game Theory Evolving is innovative in several ways.
Game Theory Evolving: A Problem-Centered Introduction to Modeling Strategic Interaction
Return to Contents of this issue. Chapters typically start evooving 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.
Rafael Marques rated it really liked it May 24, Juan Sagasti rated it really liked it Jul 05, Eric Allen rated it it heebert amazing Apr 20, Reflecting the growing consensus that in many important contexts outside of anonymous markets, human behavior is not well described by classical “rationality,” Theroy shows students how to apply game theory to model how people behave in ways that reflect the special nature of human sociality and individuality.
The style of writing is lucid and often humorous. And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis does not shy away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places. 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 hrbert of a structured story and a somewhat chaotic overall impression.

Bryce rated it liked it Dec 27, Nelson Amaya rated it really liked it Dec 15, A first difference is that the book has considerably decreased in volume. 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.
Refresh and try again.
In this regard, Gintis and his publisher missed an opportunity to turn Game Theory Evolving into a truly great textbook. Solutions to many problems gamf provided at the end of the book. The book did humanise the game theory topic and did make it comprehensible to non-mathematicians like me, you have a passing interest in the subject of game theory.
In effect, the book reads like a collection of problems and answers only now and then interrupted by bits of explanation. Open Preview See a Problem?

Megan rated it really liked it May 07, The book as a whole however still makes a somewhat unpolished impression, and I am not convinced of its improvement over the first edition.
