Theory of games and economic behavior by
John Von Neumann(
Book
)
272 editions published between 1944 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 4,059 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the classic work upon which modernday game theory is based. What began more than sixty years ago as a modest proposal that a mathematician and an economist write a short paper together blossomed, in 1944, when Princeton University Press published Theory of Games and Economic Behavior. In it, John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern conceived a groundbreaking mathematical theory of economic and social organization, based on a theory of games of strategy. Not only would this revolutionize economics, but the entirely new field of scientific inquiry it yielded  game theory  has since been widely used to analyze a host of realworld phenomena from arms races to optimal policy choices of presidential candidates, from vaccination policy to major league baseball salary negotiations. And it is today established throughout both the social sciences and a wide range of other sciences." "This sixtiethanniversary edition includes not only the original text but also an introduction by Harold Kuhn, an afterword by Ariel Rubinstein, and contemporary reviews and articles on the book that appeared in the New York Times, The American Economic Review, and a variety of other publications. Together, these writings provide readers a matchless opportunity to more fully appreciate a work whose influence will yet resound for generations to come. Book jacket."BOOK JACKET

The computer and the brain by
John Von Neumann(
Book
)
76 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book represents the view of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar statistical language unlike that employed in the operation of manmade computers. This edition includes a new foreword by two eminent figures in the fields of philosophy, neuroscience, and consciousness, Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. Churchland."Jacket

Axioms where are motivated by quantum mechanics are formulated for a probabilitylogic system. It is shown that these axioms characterize precisely those lattices which are lattices of all projections in a irreducible von Neumann algebra of type II₁ or I[subscript]N, N [greaterthan or equal to] 4 in Hilbert spaces of arbitrary dimension and real or complex scalars

The Neumann compendium by
John Von Neumann(
Book
)
10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After three decades since the first nearly complete edition of John von Neumann's papers, this book is a valuable selection of those papers and excerpts of his books that are most characteristic of his activity, and reveal that of his continuous influence. The results receiving the 1994 Nobel Prizes in economy deeply rooted in Neumann's game theory are only minor traces of his exceptionally broad spectrum of creativity and stimulation. The book is organized by the specific subjectsquantum mechanics, ergodic theory, operator algebra, hydrodynamics, economics, computers, science and society. In addition, one paper which was written in German will be translated and published in English for the first time. The sections are introduced by short explanatory notes with an emphasis on recent developments based on von Neumann's contributions. An overall picture is provided by Ulam's, one of his most intimate partners in thinking, 1958 memorial lecture. Facsimilae and translations of some of his personal letters and a newly completed bibliography based on von Neumann's own careful compilation are added

Mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics by
John Von Neumann(
)
1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quantum mechanics was still in its infancy in 1932 when the young John von Neumann, who would go on to become one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century, published 'Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics', a revolutionary work that for the first time provided a rigorous mathematical framework for the new science. Robert Beyer's 1955 English translation, which von Neumann reviewed and approved, is cited more frequently today than ever before. But its many treasures and insights were too often obscured by the limitations of the way the text and equations were set on the page. This new edition of this classic work has been completely reset in TeX, making the text and equations far easier to read
