Values of nonatomic games by
Robert J Aumann(
)
26 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in English and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report concludes a fivepart series on the mathematical theory of nonatomic games. The term nonatomic, borrowed from measure theory and probability theory, signifies that in these games with infinitely many participants, no single individual is big enough to influence the outcome by himself. Such games have served as mathematical models for largescale competitive systems in economics or politics. In this report the applications of the theory to a class of economics models are developed

Repeated games with incomplete information by
Robert J Aumann(
Book
)
11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the height of the Cold War, between 1965 and 1968, Robert Aumann, Michael Maschler, and Richard Stearns collaborated on research on the dynamics of arms control negotiations that has since become foundational to work on repeated games. These five seminal papers are collected here for the first time, with the addition of "postscripts" describing many of the developments since the papers were written. The basic model studied throughout the book is one in which players ignorant about the game being played must learn what they can from the actions of the others

Sergiu Hart(
Book
)
9 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Game and Economic Theory studies the interaction of decision makers whose decisions affect each other. The analysis is from a rational viewpoint: every participant would like to obtain the outcome that they prefer most. However, each one has to take into account that the others are doing the same  trying to get what they prefer most. At times this leads to fierce competition; at other times, to mutually beneficial cooperation; and in general, to an appropriate combination of these two extreme behaviors. Game theory, which may be viewed as a sort of "unified field" theory for the rational side of social science, develops the theoretical foundations for the analysis of such multiperson interactive situations and then applies these to many disciplines: economics, political science, biology, psychology, computer science, statistics, and law. Foremost among these is economic theory, where game theory is playing a central role

While these are the stories of Jewish people who were displaced by the Second World War, the film concentrates on the vibrant cultural and family life they experienced in their youth that ultimately was most influential in their lives. It explores the connection between old age and childhood, asking questions about what remains of childhood in our later years, as well as engaging interesting issues of selfidentity, Jewish identity, and the struggle to make any sense of the experience

Collected papers by

Book

6 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Robert Aumann's career in game theory has spanned over research  from his doctoral dissertation in 1956 to papers as recent as January 1995. Threaded through all of Aumann's work (symbolized in his thesis on knots) is the study of relationships between different ideas, between different phenomena, and between ideas and phenomena. "When you look closely at one scientific idea", writes Aumann, "you find it hitched to all others. It is these hitches that I have tried to study". The papers are organized in several categories: general, knot theory, decision theory (utility and subjective probability), strategic games, coalitional games, and mathematical methods. Aumann has written an introduction to each of these groups that briefly describes the content and background of each paper, including the motivation and the research process, and relates it to other work in the collection and to work by others. There is also a citation index that allows readers to trace the considerable body of literature which cites Aumann's own work

7 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the publication of Theory of Games and Economic Behavior by von Neumann and Morgenstern, the concept of games has played an increasing role in economics. It also plays a role of growing importance in other sciences, including biology, political science, and psychology. Many scientists have made seminal advances and continue to be leaders in the field, including Harsanyi, Shapley, Shubik, and Selten. Professor Robert Aumann, in addition to his important contributions to game theory and economics, made a number of significant contributions to mathematics. This volume provides a collection

Homotopy theory by
George W Whitehead(
Book
)
15 editions published between 1953 and 1966 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book consists of notes for a secondyear graduate course in advanced topology given by Professor Whitehead at M.I.T. Presupposing a knowledge of the fundamental group and of algebraic topology as far as singular theory, it is designed to introduce the student to some of the more important concepts of homotopy theory. The book emphasizes (relative) CWcomplexes, which the author believes to be the natural setting for obstruction theory, and follows the spirit of J.H.C. Whitehead's "combinatorial homotopy."

Values of nonatomic games : IV: the value and the core by
Robert J Aumann(
Book
)
6 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The value of an nperson game is a function that associates to each player a number that, intuitively speaking, represents an a priori opinion of what it is worth to him to play in the game. A nonatomic game is a special kind of infiniteperson game, in which no individual player has significance. The relationship between the value and another solution concept is developed. The core of a game is the set of outcomes that, intuitively speaking, no coalition of players can improve upon. The core is a basic concept that has been studied widely by both game theorists and economists. The main object of the present paper is to prove that under suitable assumptions, the core of a nonatomic game consists of a single outcome, and that this outcome coincides with the value. The assumptions (superadditivity and homogeneity of degree 1) are satisfied in many cases of interest, including a basic economic application. (Author)

Values of nonatomic games : III: values and derivatives by
Robert J Aumann(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A nonatomic game is a special kind of infiniteperson game, in which no individual player has significance; such games have recently attracted attention as models for mass phenomena in economics. In this Memorandum, the characteristic function of the game is extended to a space that includes not only the ordinary coalitions (measurable sets) of players, but also certain 'ideal' coalitionsintuitively, sets to which a player can 'belong' at any intensity between 0 and 1. The value of the game is then redefined in terms of the derivatives of this extended function, following the principle that a player's value is based upon his incremental worth to coalitions. The close relation between this definition and those previously considered is established. (Author)
