Learn the Mathematical Tools You Need for Economics with Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis 4th Edition
the theory of game-theoretical equilibrium is the basis of all economic analysis. the first part of this book is devoted to the analysis of games with a finite number of players. of course, this analysis assumes that all players are rational and are concerned with maximizing their profit or utility. a crucial part of the book is devoted to the analysis of games with an infinite number of players. the theory of game-theoretical equilibrium in this second part of the book is used to analyze economic behavior in a wide variety of cases. the book also presents a number of new results in game theory, including results on the convexity of expected utility and on the computation of nash equilibria of games with an infinite number of players. it is one of the most comprehensive and coherent books on game theory in the english-speaking world.
