Game Theory by Professor Guillermo Owen has been the seminal work on the subject since its first edition. Now in its 4th edition it covers the fundamental concepts such as the Extensive and Normal forms of games as well as the Minimax theorem core of the mathematical theory of games and the computation of Optimal Strategies. From the fundamental concepts the book moves into the critical concepts of game theory the Core, Nash equilibrium and Shapley Value. After that the latest contributions of Nobel winners are considered including Horwicz analysis of illegal movements.
Game Theory is part of the basic principles of modern Economics. The work discusses the concepts of Utility, Linear Programing and Public Goods among others. Another new feature is that the book is available online.
