Games have shown to provide a useful paradigm for reasoning about reactive systems. Not only can model-checking algorithms be formulated as games, but the interaction of reactive systems with their environments can also be modeled as a game. The aim of this course is to demonstrate the power of the game-theoretic approach, by showing how it gives rise to a unifying algorithmic framework through the use of tree automata as an underlying technical tool.

This volume testifies to the importance of game theory as a tool to capture the concepts of strategy, interaction, argumentation, communication, cooperation and competition. It provides evidence for the richness of game theory and its applications.

These are lecture notes for a course in game theory. The text covers general concepts of two person games, Brouwer’s fixed point theorem and Nash’s equilibrium theorem, more general equilibrium theorems, cooperative games and differential games.

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.
