Game Theory

[Home][Teaching][Research]
 

Game theory is the mathematics of competitive behavior, whether this behavior is deliberate or not. The players need not be what we normally think of as conscious beings, but might be two enzymes competing for a binding site on a strand of DNA. Examples where game theory is a useful tool include Biology, Economics, Anthropology, the analysis of security notions used in cryptology and information security, and the foundations of Mathematics.
