Matrix games

  • N. N. Vorob’ev
Part of the Applications of Mathematics book series (SMAP, volume 7)


This book discusses primarily the so-called noncooperative games. In these games the goal of each participant (player) is to achieve the largest possible individual gain (profit or payoff). Games in which the actions of the players are directed to maximize the gains of “collectives” (coalitions) without subsequent subdivision of the gain among the players within the coalition are called cooperative games. The theory of cooperative games in general is much more involved and is not studied in this book.
