Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. This text demonstrates the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata.

Multiagent systems consist of multiple autonomous entities having different information and diverging interests. This comprehensive introduction to the field offers a computer science perspective, but also draws on ideas from game theory.
