Game theory is the study of the ways in which interacting choices of economic agents produce outcomes with respect to the preferences or utilities of those agents, where the outcomes in question might have been intended by none of the agents. The meaning of this statement will not be clear to the non-expert until each of the italicized words and phrases has been explained and featured in some examples. Doing this will be the main business of this article. First, however, we provide some historical and philosophical context in order to motivate the reader for the technical work ahead. Game theory in the form known to economists, social scientists, and biologists, was given its first general mathematical formulation by John von Neuman and Oskar Morgenstern

The Basic Library List Committee suggests that undergraduate mathematics libraries consider this book for acquisition. As the title implies, this text develops the theory of statistical decisions within the framework of a game played between the statistician and nature. The first two chapters of the text provide the framework upon which the content will be built, while the third chapter exposes the reader to the general structure of statistical games. The remainder of the text is truly a treat for the reader.

In chapter 4 the authors introduce the notion of utility as a measure of satisfaction with the outcome of a game. In chapter 5 the reader is exposed to the different classes of optimal strategies for games. The remaining chapters of the text provide rigorous development, discussion, and exploration of different classes of statistical games. It is recommended that any reader maintain a well-organized list of the symbols used throughout the text, as there are many.

This advanced text is well-written and provides a very interesting perspective on statistical decisions. The book is a recommended read for any instructor or practitioner with the requisite background knowledge.

Practitioners will benefit from the formalization of the practical goals of the statistician and decision maker, while instructors will gain deeper understanding of the content particularly risk-reward analysis and hypothesis testing that they teach in their own statistics courses.

His research interests are in graph theory and combinatorial games. Skip to main content. Search form Search. Login Join Give Shops. Halmos - Lester R. Ford Awards Merten M. David A. Blackwell and M.

Game theory is the study of mathematical models of strategic interaction among rational decision-makers. Originally, it addressed zero-sum games , in which each participant's gains or losses are exactly balanced by those of the other participants.

About This Book. Evaluating statistical procedures through decision and game theory, as first proposed by Neyman and Pearson and extended by Wald, is the.

Game Theory pp Cite as. Decision theory is the science of making optimal decisions in the face of uncertainty. Statistical decision theory is concerned with the making of decisions when in the presence of statistical knowledge data which sheds light on some of the uncertainties involved in the decision problem. Any attempt at a general review of decision theory is thus doomed; all that can be done is to present a description of some of the underlying ideas.

Оглядывая свой роскошно меблированный кабинет, он думал о том, что достиг потолка в структуре АНБ. Его кабинет находился на девятом этаже - в так называемом Коридоре красного дерева. Кабинет номер 9А197. Директорские апартаменты. В этот субботний вечер в Коридоре красного дерева было пусто, все служащие давно разошлись по домам, чтобы предаться излюбленным развлечениям влиятельных людей. Хотя Бринкерхофф всегда мечтал о настоящей карьере в агентстве, он вынужден был довольствоваться положением личного помощника - бюрократическим тупиком, в который его загнала политическая крысиная возня.

Вина ляжет на АНБ. - Мы успеем найти его партнера. - Думаю. У нас есть кое-какие данные. Танкадо неоднократно публично заявлял, что у него есть партнер. Наверное, этим он надеялся помешать производителям программного обеспечения организовать нападение на него и выкрасть пароль.
