  • Overview

    Introduction
    Game Theory is a field of study that was developed in the latter half of the twentieth century. Today more than ever before, game theory attracts attention for its wide range of applications ranging from business, auctions, bargaining, price matching, threats and promises, and elections to military strategy, biology, and gambling. Thus game theory has grown to be an interdisciplinary field with applications in economics, political science, philosophy, business, and international relations among others.
