Game Theory Evolving is innovative in several ways. Trivia About Game Theory Evolv Will Klutch rated it it was ggame Jun 12, Solutions to many problems are provided at the end of the evolvinv. And unlike many other game theorists, Gintis does not shy away from agent-based models, which are discussed in various places. Finally, the quality of the problems is simply unsurpassed, and each chapter provides a study plan for instructors interested in teaching evolutionary game theory.

In this regard, Gintis and his publisher missed an opportunity to turn Game Theory Evolving into a truly great textbook. The study of evolvig action game theory is moving from a formal science of rational behavior to an evolutionary tool kit for studying behavior in a broad array of social settings. In this problem-oriented introduction to the field, Herbert Gintis exposes students to the techniques and applications of gams theory through a wealth of sophisticated and surprisingly fun-to-solve problems involving human and even animal behavior.

The style of writing is lucid evolvnig often humorous.
Nick Barr rated it it was amazing Jun 09, This is certainly not an approach to please everyone. Gintis then moves on to the more specific topics of principal-agent models, signaling games, and repeated games.

Michael Swearingen rated it really liked it Dec 06, Where expert reviewers have heralded the quality the material of the first edition, a reader used to more traditional approaches to textbooks was likely to be frustrated by its lack of a structured story and a somewhat chaotic overall impression.
Aside from specific topics, the text also seems to have been shortened overall, giving the impression that often explanation has been shortened in favor of additional problems.

We can only guess about the underlying reasons the preface, unfortunately, does not detail differences between the editionsgkntis I find these choices surprising given the ever-increasing impact of behavioral approaches on economic thinking.
Game Theory Evolving: A Problem-Centered Introduction to Modeling Strategic Interaction
Want to Read saving…. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. These basics are elaborated in chapterswhich discuss eliminating dominated strategies and pure- and mixed-strategy Nash equilibria. It will prove to be extremely useful in learning game theory, evolvng for many readers it should probably be supplemented with additional instruction or a more traditional straightforward textbook.
Chapter two, especially, which lays out the mathematical foundations of the rational actor model, is in my opinion far too formal and abstract for its position in the book. In the final quarter of the book, the emphasis shifts to topics characteristic of evolutionary game theory: Kaisar Khatak rated it it was amazing Mar 31, In some places it seems that sections have not yet been fully adapted to their new place in the book; sometimes new concepts are used before being introduced, while other concepts are introduced twice.
