pdf epub fb2 djvu



This book represents a major contribution to game theory. It offers a new conception of equilibrium in games: strategic equilibrium. This new conception arises from a study of expected utility decision principles, which must be revised to take account of the evidence a choice provides concerning its outcome. In synthesizing decision theory and game theory in a powerful new way this book will be of particular interest to all philosophers concerned with decision theory and game theory as well as economists and other social scientists.
