  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;

    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 applications

    Author : Carl-Joar Karlsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; non-cooperative game theory; prisoner s dilemma; disease; distribution; compartmental model; epidemiological model; game theory; equilibrium strategy;

    Abstract : Individual-level interactions and decisions spread though populations and change the collective-level dynamics in an intricate way. Nevertheless, game theory is well suited for the unification of these viewpoints. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  5. 5. 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
