The reality game theory imposes (Short summary)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


I was lucky to be exposed to game theory by Paul Spirakis, moreover to have my first PhD student, Elad Schiller staying with Paul as his PostDoc. It was a great opportunity to examine and think about the combination of philosophical and social considerations when examining the rigorous mathematical settings, results and implications of Game Theory. Implications, that should reflect our real life situations. Especially when searching for game theory tools to be used automatically by societies of (users connected to) computers that form a distributed system.
