  1. 1. Impartial Games and Recursive Functions

    Author : Urban Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Algorithmically undecidable; Beatty sequences; Blocking maneuver; Cellular automaton; Comply maneuver; Complementary sequences; Dictionary process; Dual game; Game complexity; Game convergence; Game reflexivity; Heap game; Impartial game; Invariant subtraction game; Move-size dynamic; Nim; P-equivalence; Rule 110; Splitting sequences; *-operator; Subtraction game; Take-away game; Turing complete; Wythoff Nim; Turing complete;

    Abstract : Interest in 2-player impartial games often concerns the famous theory of Sprague-Grundy. In this thesis we study other aspects, bridging some gaps between combinatorial number theory, computer science and combinatorial games. READ MORE

  2. 2. Game Theory and Agents

    Author : Stefan J. Johansson; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Game Theory; Multi-Agent Systems; No Free Lunch Theorem; Characteristic Distributions;

    Abstract : A fundamental problem in multi agent systems is conflict resolution. A conflict occurs in general when the agents have to deal with inconsistent goals, such as a demand for shared resources. We investigate how a game theoretic approach may be a helpful and efficient tool in examining a class of conflicts in multi agent systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Changing the Game : Consociational Theory and Ethnic Quotas in Cyprus and New Zealand

    Author : Anna Jarstad; Timothy D. Sisk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Peace and conflict research; consociationalism; game theory; ethnic conflict; divided society; conflict management; constitutional engineering; ethnic quotas; Cyprus; New Zealand; Freds- och konfliktforskning; Peace and conflict research; Freds- och konfliktforskning; Peace and Conflict Research; Freds- och konfliktforskning; freds- och konfliktforskning;

    Abstract : This study addresses the question of what makes ethnic quota systems in parliament work to manage ethnopolitical violence. By a reconstruction of Arend Lijphart’s theory on consociationalism, two causal mechanisms are identified. The first mechanism levels the power balance of contending groups by permanent inclusion in parliament. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multi-unit common value auctions : theory and experiments

    Author : Joakim Ahlberg; Lars Hultkrantz; Jan-Eric Nilsson; Jerker Holm; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Multi-Unit Auction; Common Value Auction; Laboratory Experiment; Game Theory; Economics; Nationalekonomi; Q Economics; Q Economics;

    Abstract : Research on auctions that involve more than one identical item for sale was,almost non-existing in the 90’s, but has since then been getting increasing attention. External incentives for this research have come from the US spectrum, sales, the European 3G mobile-phone auctions,  and Internet auctions. READ MORE
