Game theory addresses situations with multiple agents in which the outcome of an agent's act depends on the acts of the other agents. The agents may be mindless organisms. Epistemic game theory addresses games in which the agents have minds.

This textbook provides an overview of the field of game theory which analyses decision situations that have the character of games. The book is suitable as an introductory reading and is meant to sharpen the reader's strategic thinking abilities.

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.

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.
