GAME THEORY EVOLVING HERBERT GINTIS PDF

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. 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. Game Theory Evolving is innovative in several ways. 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.

Description Since its original publication in , Game Theory Evolving has been considered the best textbook on evolutionary game theory.

This completely revised and updated second edition of Game Theory Evolving contains new material and shows students how to apply game theory to model human behavior in ways that reflect the special nature of sociality and individuality. The textbook continues its in-depth look at cooperation in teams, agent-based simulations, experimental economics, the evolution and diffusion of preferences, and the connection between biology and economics.

Recognizing that students learn by doing, the textbook introduces principles through practice. 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 animal behavior. The second edition includes solutions to the problems presented and information related to agent-based modeling.

In addition, the textbook incorporates instruction in using mathematical software to solve complex problems. Game Theory Evolving is perfect for graduate and upper-level undergraduate economics students, and is a terrific introduction for ambitious do-it-yourselfers throughout the behavioral sciences.

Review quote "Gintis has wholeheartedly embraced the evolutionary approach to games The author is an accomplished economist raised in the classical mold, and his background shows in many aspects of the book And with Gintis' outline of agent-based modeling and his tips for programming, many readers may be motivated to take up his invitation and experiment with a problem in evolutionary dynamics of their own.

This is certainly not an approach to please everyone. In effect, the book reads like a collection of problems and answers only now and then interrupted by bits of explanation. While this may indeed be a good way for newcomers to familiarize themselves with game-theoretical analysis, it makes the book less useful as a reference. 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 in which the basic concepts of game theory are introduced. These basics are elaborated in chapters , which discuss eliminating dominated strategies and pure- and mixed-strategy Nash equilibria. Gintis then moves on to the more specific topics of principal-agent models, signaling games, and repeated games.
