Book Review: This book is widely used for social and behavioral sciences. The book also demonstrates main principles of game theory and is used to understand economic, social and political phenomena. The book also expresses the major ideas underlying the theory rather than mathematical expression. Logical Reasoning concepts are used throughout the book. Knowledge of basic mathematics is necessary and no knowledge of economics, political science and other behavioral sciences is needed. This book is suitable for graduate and undergraduate courses in game theory.
|4. “Game Theory” by G. Owen
Book Review: This is a standard textbook for courses on game theory and contains all the latest advancements in the field of game theory. The book contains a dedicated section on Monty hall problem that demonstrates how the solution can be obtained by using theoretical game methods rather than conditional probability theory. The book also contains an additional chapter that discusses the contributions of Nobel laureates and their work on mechanism design along with the works on auctions and two sided matching.
