Graduate-Level Course in Game Theory
by Jim Ratliff
These are lecture notes from a game-theory course the author taught to students in their second year of the economics PhD program at the University of Arizona. The material presented would also be helpful to first-year PhD students learning game theory as part of their microeconomic-theory sequence, as well as to advanced undergraduates learning game theory. The exposition is detailed, rigorous, and self-contained.

Striking an appropriate balance of mathematical and analytical rigor, this book teaches by example. Learners typically relate better to examples from their own fields, and McCain provides illustrations everyone can relate to.

The volume contains the first comprehensive explorations of misère games. It includes a tutorial for the very successful approach to analyzing misère impartial games and the first attempt at using it for misère partisan games.

This essay gives a self-contained introduction to quantum game theory, and is primarily oriented to economists with little or no acquaintance with quantum mechanics. It assumes little more than a basic knowledge of vector algebra.

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.
