    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

    University dissertation from Ronneby : Kaserntryckeriet AB, Karlskrona

    Author : Stefan J. Johansson; ; [1999]
    Keywords : 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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Institutionen för freds- och konfliktforskning

    Author : Anna Jarstad; Timothy D. Sisk; [2001]
    Keywords : 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; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Political science Peace and conflict research; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Statsvetenskap Freds- och konfliktforskning; Peace and Conflict Research; 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
