List of games in game theory

List of games in game theory
Game theory studies strategic interaction between individuals in situations called games. Classes of these games have been given names. This is a list of the most commonly studied games Explanation of features[edit] Games can have several features, a few of the most common are listed here. Number of players: Each person who makes a choice in a game or who receives a payoff from the outcome of those choices is a player.Strategies per player: In a game each player chooses from a set of possible actions, known as pure strategies. List of games[edit] External links[edit] Notes[edit] Jump up ^ For the cake cutting problem, there is a simple solution if the object to be divided is homogenous; one person cuts, the other chooses who gets which piece (continued for each player).

Game theory Game theory is the study of strategic decision making. Specifically, it is "the study of mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent rational decision-makers. Modern game theory began with the idea regarding the existence of mixed-strategy equilibria in two-person zero-sum games and its proof by John von Neumann. This theory was developed extensively in the 1950s by many scholars. Representation of games[edit] Most cooperative games are presented in the characteristic function form, while the extensive and the normal forms are used to define noncooperative games. Extensive form[edit] The game pictured consists of two players. The extensive form can also capture simultaneous-move games and games with imperfect information. Normal form[edit] When a game is presented in normal form, it is presumed that each player acts simultaneously or, at least, without knowing the actions of the other. Characteristic function form[edit] appears, it works against the fraction [edit]

Tendances Les principales tendances observées ces dernières années, et qui devraient selon toute vraisemblance se poursuivre, sont le développement des plateformes sociales et mobiles. Les jeux sociaux représentent ainsi 13% du marché du jeu vidéo (et 36% du jeu en ligne), et leur chiffre d’affaires devrait doubler d’ici 2016 (de 5,4 milliards à 10,7 milliards d’euros). De même, d’ici 2016, les jeux sociaux devraient représenter 18% du marché du jeu vidéo et 46% du jeu en ligne. En parallèle, le marché des consoles de jeu connaît lui aussi une belle croissance, puisque un foyer français sur deux est aujourd’hui équipé d’une console de jeu, et les consoles 8èmes génération ont battu tous les records de vente de leurs prédécesseurs. Autres tendances : - 70% des foyers sont équipés d’ordinateurs et 84% d’un téléphone mobile - 59% des joueurs jouent sur PC et consoles, et 84% d’entres eux souhaiteraient pouvoir accéder à leurs jeux sur plusieurs plateformes Les succès Français de 2013 :

Game Theory First published Sat Jan 25, 1997; substantive revision Wed May 5, 2010 Game theory is the study of the ways in which strategic interactions among 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. 1. The mathematical theory of games was invented by John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern (1944). Despite the fact that game theory has been rendered mathematically and logically systematic only since 1944, game-theoretic insights can be found among commentators going back to ancient times. Long before game theory had come along to show analysts how to think about this sort of problem systematically, it had occurred to some actual military leaders and influenced their strategies. 2. 2.1 Utility

Principe de classification La classification en ligne du jeu vidéo Ce site vous propose une classification collaborative adaptée au jeu vidéo, qui s'appuie sur plusieurs critères simultanés. Les jeux vidéo y sont classifiés en regard de leur :Catégorie générale : Une catégorie globale déduite d'après les autres critères.Gameplay : Le titre propose t-il des objectifs à atteindre à l'image d'un "jeu", ou laisse t'il plutôt le joueur libre de ses choix comme tout "jouet" qui se respecte ? Au-delà de ces deux principes généraux, les règles à la base de chaque jeu sont analysés et représentées par des briques de GamePlay.Intention : Au-delà de son aspect ludique, ce titre vise t'il d'autres intentions? Catégorie générale En se basant sur les autres critères, il est possible d'attribuer une catégorie générale à chaque jeu, assortie d'une éventuelle sous-catégorie. Catégories Sous-Catégories Gameplay Eviter Cette brique invite l’utilisateur à éviter des éléments/obstacles/ennemis/adversaires. Exemples Atteindre Détruire Créer

What is Game Theory? Translations: Czech courtesy of Autip. Macedonian courtesy of Zoran Mitreski. Russian courtesy of Oleg Meister. German courtesy of Alexy Gnatuk. Romanian courtesy of Alexandra Seremina and Azoft. What economists call game theory psychologists call the theory of social situations, which is an accurate description of what game theory is about. In addition to game theory, economic theory has three other main branches: decision theory, general equilibrium theory and mechanism design theory. Decision theory can be viewed as a theory of one person games, or a game of a single player against nature. General equilibrium theory can be viewed as a specialized branch of game theory that deals with trade and production, and typically with a relatively large number of individual consumers and producers. Mechanism design theory differs from game theory in that game theory takes the rules of the game as given, while mechanism design theory asks about the consequences of different types of rules.

Kapp Game Theory .net - Resources for Learning and Teaching Strategy for Business and Life Personality And Play Styles: A Unified Model Personality And Play Styles: A Unified Model By Bart Stewart [In this comprehensive analysis, multiple psychological systems of gameplay are surveyed, to try and arrive at a unified model in which player behavior can be understood and, crucially for game developers, catered to.] Numerous models of gamer psychology have been proposed and debated over the past couple of decades. In fact, several of the best-known play style and game design models share many conceptual elements.
