Bounded rationality : the adaptive toolbox by Dahlem workshop on Bounded rationality (#the #adaptive toolbox) :( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do people, animals, and institutions make decisions in a complex and uncertain world? Rational choice theory answers this question from the perspective of an omniscient and omnipotent superintelligence that decides by optimizing. In contrast, this book promotes the concept of the "adaptive toolbox," a repertoire of fast and frugal heuristics for real people with limited time, knowledge, and resources. It views bounded rationality neither as optimality under constraints nor as the study of people's reasoning fallacies. The strategies in the adaptive toolbox dispense with optimization and, for the most part, with calculations of probabilities and utilities. The book extends the concept of bounded rationality from cognitive tools to emotions; it analyzes social norms, imitation, and other cultural tools as rational strategies; and it shows how smart strategies can exploit the structures of environments. It brings together experts from cognitive science, economics, evolutionary biology, and anthropology to create an interdisciplinary basis for understanding the adaptive toolbox

Models of strategic rationality by Reinhard Selten( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in 4 languages and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers collected in this volume relate to game theory. They aim at the elaboration and discussion of basic con cepts, at the analysis of specific applied models and at the evaluation of experimental evidence. A game is a mathematical model of a situation where several actors with different goals are engaged in strategic inter action. Game theory explores the nature and the consequence. s of rational behavior in games. With respect to several papers in this volume, it seems to be appropriate to comment on later developments. A list of some important references is given at the end of the intro duction. References already included in the collected pa pers are not repeated here. In casual conversation colleagues sometimes observe that the author on the one hand goes to extremes in the elabora tion of the consequences of Bayesian rationality and on the other hand strongly emphasizes the limited rationality of actual decision behavior. This seeming discrepancy is also expressed in the collection presented here. The author thinks that a sharp distinction should be made between nor ~ative and descriptive game theory. This position of "methodological dualism" has been expressed in a comment to Aumann's paper "What is game theory trying to accomplish?" (Aumann, 1985, Selten 1985) Normative game theory has the important task to explore the nature and the consequences of idealized full rationality in strategic interaction. This requires a thorough discuss ion of first principles. Empirical arguments are irrelevant here
Bounded rational behavior in experimental games and markets : proceedings of the Fourth Conference on Experimental Economics, Bielefeld, West Germany, September 21-25, 1986 by Reinhard Tietz( Book )

10 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book reports on recent experimental research on expectations and decision making in bargaining, markets, auctions, or coalition formation situations. The investi- gated topics deliver building stones for a bounded rational theory as an approach to explain behavior and interpersonal interactions in economic and social relationships
Economics lab : an intensive course in experimental economics by Daniel Friedman( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laboratory experiments with human subjects provide crucial data in most fields of economics. There has been a tremendous upsurge in interest in this relatively new field of economics. This textbook is an introduction to the world of experimental economics. Contributors such as Reinhard Selten and Axel Leijonhufvud add to a book that begins with an exploration of the history of experimental economics before moving on to describing how to set up an economics experiment and surveying selected applications and the latest methods. This user-friendly book demonstrates how students can use the lessons learned within it to conduct original research. With their free-flowing, discursive yet precise style, Friedman and Cassar have created abook that will be simply essential to students of experimental economics across the world. Thanks to its authoritative content, the book will also find its way onto every respectable economists bookshelf

Rational interaction : essays in honor of John C. Harsanyi by Reinhard Selten( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unifying theme of the 23 contributions to this book is the social interaction of rational individuals. The work of John C. Harsanyi on game theory, social choice, and the philosophy of science finds an echo in these essays. Contributions by well known game theorists and economists present a great variety of stimulating theoretical investigations. Part I contains six papers on non-cooperative game theory written by Maschler, Owen, Myerson, Peleg, Rosenmüller, Hart and Mas-Collel. Part II with three contributions by Kalei, Samet, van Damme, d'Aspremont, and Gérard-Varet is devoted to the use of non-cooperative game theory in the analysis of problems of mechanism design. Basic questions of non-cooperative game theory are discussed in three essays by Güth, Hardin, and Sugden in Part III. Applied game models are discussed in three papers by Friedman, Selten, and Shubik in Part IV. Problems of social choice are investigated in Part V which deals with utilitarianism and related topics in five contributions by Hammond, Binmore, Arrow, Roemer, and Broome. Finally, Part VI contains three papers: an interdisciplinary comparison of physics and economics by Samuelson, a methodological essay by Brock, and an appraisal of the work of John C. Harsanyi
Understanding strategic interaction : essays in honor of Reinhard Selten by Wulf Albers( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strategic interaction occurs whenever it depends on others what one finally obtains: on markets, in firms, in politics etc. Game theorists analyse such interaction normatively, using numerous different methods. The rationalistic approach assumes perfect rationality whereas behavioral theories take into account cognitive limitations of human decision makers. In the animal kingdom one usually refers to evolutionary forces when explaining social interaction. The volume contains innovative contributions, surveys of previous work and two interviews which shed new light on these important topics of the research agenda. The contributions come from highly regarded researchers from all over the world who like to express in this way their intellectual inspiration by the Nobel-laureate Reinhard Selten
Game theory and economic behaviour : selected essays by Reinhard Selten( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Human behaviour and traffic networks by Michael Schreckenberg( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do people behave in different traffic situations? Are there general laws for mathematical modelling of decision dynamics? The answers, given at the first international workshop on "Human Behaviour in Traffic Networks", are presented in this volume. In 13 articles, well-known experts report about their current work on experiments and modelling in this area. The topics range from psychological behaviour in traffic situations, traffic simulations of various aspects and market analysis to experiments with human participants used in experimental economics. The articles filled with many illustrations are aimed at interested students as well as experts in this field

The Selten School of Behavioral Economics : a collection of essays in honor of Reinhard Selten by Abdolkarim Sadrieh( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reinhard Selten, to date the only German Nobel Prize laureate in economics, celebrates his 80th birthday in 2010. While his contributions to game theory are well-known, the behavioral side of his scientific work has received less public exposure, even though he has been committed to experimental research during his entire career, publishing more experimental than theoretical papers in top-tier journals. This Festschrift is dedicated to Reinhard Selten's exceptional influence on behavioral and experimental economics. In this collection of academic highlight papers, a number of his students are joined by leading scholars in experimental research to document the historical role of the "Meister" in the development of the research methodology and of several sub-fields of behavioral economics. Next to the academic insight in these highly active fields of experimental research, the papers also provide a glance at Reinhard Selten's academic and personal interaction with his students and peers"--Publisher
Game equilibrium models III strategic bargaining by Reinhard Selten( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The four volumes of Game Equilibrium Models present applications of non-cooperative game theory. Problems of strategic interaction arising in biology, economics, political science and the social sciences in general are treated in 42 papers on a wide variety of subjects. Internationally known authors with backgrounds in various disciplines have contributed original research. The reader finds innovative modelling combined with advanced methods of analysis. The four volumes are the outcome of a research year at the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies of the University of Bielefeld. The close interaction of an international interdisciplinary group of researchers has produced an unusual collection of remarkable results of great interest for everybody who wants to be informed on the scope, potential, and future direction of work in applied game theory. Volume III Strategic Bargaining contains ten papers on game equilibrium models of bargaining. All these contributions look at bargaining situations as non-cooperative games. General models of two-person and n-person bargaining are explored
