Harold W. Kuhn is Professor Emeritus of Mathematical Economics at Princeton University and is internationally known for his joint paper with the late Albert W. Tucker that initiated the theory of "nonlinear programming. In 1994, on the occasion of the awarding of the Nobel Prizes, he organized and chaired a historic Nobel Seminar on the work of John Nash in game theory; this seminar is published in Les Prix Nobel 1994 (Almquist & Wicksell, 1994).

Classics in Game Theory assembles in one sourcebook the basic contributions to the field that followed on the publication of Theory of Games and Economic Behavior by John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern (Princeton, 1944). The theory of games, first given a rigorous formulation by von Neumann in a in 1928, is a subfield of mathematics and economics that models situations in which individuals compete and cooperate with each other.

Harold William Kuhn (July 29, 1925 – July 2, 2014) was an American mathematician who studied game theory. He won the 1980 John von Neumann Theory Prize along with David Gale and Albert W. Tucker. A former Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Princeton University, he is known for the Karush–Kuhn–Tucker conditions, for Kuhn's theorem, for developing Kuhn poker as well as the description of the Hungarian method for the assignment problem.

Harold Kuhn first presented these lectures at Princeton University in 1952. The book opens by addressing "matrix games," a name first introduced in these lectures as an abbreviation for two-person, zero-sum games in normal form with a finite number of pure strategies. It continues with a treatment of games in extensive form, using a model introduced by the author in 1950 that quickly supplanted von Neumann and Morgenstern's cumbersome approach.

This is the classic work upon which modern-day game theory is based

This is the classic work upon which modern-day game theory is based. What began more than sixty years ago as a modest proposal that a mathematician and an economist write a short paper together blossomed, in 1944, when Princeton University Press published Theory of Games and Economic Behavior.

This book is a spectacular introduction to the modern mathematical discipline known as the Theory of Games

This book is a spectacular introduction to the modern mathematical discipline known as the Theory of Games. Harold Kuhn first presented these lectures at Princeton University in 1952. A final section deals with games that have an infinite number of pure strategies for the two players. Throughout, the theory is generously illustrated with examples, and exercises test the reader's understanding. A historical note caps off each chapter.

Classics in Game Theory assembles in one sourcebook the basic contributions to the field that followed on the publication of Theory of Games and Economic Behavior by John von Neumann and Oskar Morgenstern (Princeton, 1944). The theory of games, first given a rigorous formulation by von Neumann in a in 1928, is a subfield of mathematics and economics that models situations in which individuals compete and cooperate with each other. In the "heroic era" of research that began in the late 1940s, the foundations of the current theory were laid; it is these fundamental contributions that are collected in this volume. In the last fifteen years, game theory has become the dominant model in economic theory and has made significant contributions to political science, biology, and international security studies. The central role of game theory in economic theory was recognized by the award of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Science in 1994 to the pioneering game theorists John C. Harsanyi, John Nash, and Reinhard Selten. The fundamental works for which they were honored are all included in this volume.

Harold Kuhn, himself a major contributor to game theory for his reformulation of extensive games, has chosen eighteen essays that constitute the core of game theory as it exists today. Drawn from a variety of sources, they will be an invaluable tool for researchers in game theory and for a broad group of students of economics, political science, and biology.

Reviews:
  • Arcanescar
This compilation reprints classic papers from the foundational period of game theory, the 1950s and 60s. This book is not for the beginner or even the advanced student. Contemporary textbooks such as Binmore's 'Playing for Real' (for undergraduates) or Fundenberg and Tirole's 'Game Theory' (for graduate students) do a much better job of presenting game theory as it is currently understood and practised. The benefits of hindsight are clear if one compares the discussion of extensive form games in these textbooks to Kuhn's classic paper or the discussion of Bayesian games to Harsanyi's paper. Also, because the latest paper in this collection is from 1975 you will find little mention of current topics like algorithmic game theory, repeated games, evolutionary game theory or mechanism design.

But after having studied the textbooks sometimes you would still want to read the original papers to get a better sense of the context and motivation for an idea. Sometimes it is only in these papers that you get a glimpse of conceptual problems that have been glossed over in later works. At those times this book will save you many trips to the photocopier. The papers have been retypeset very neatly and so far I have not been able to find any typos.

If you are buying this you may also want to get the two volumes of Aumann's collected works, which in many ways continue the story that this book begins.

This book takes you through the land that Von Neumann, in my opinion, created. There is no way any game theorist or game theory novice can appreciate the lenghts to which the field has expanded, without first understanding its roots. It contains the actual report, where Nash defined what is now the basis for all game theory, the Nash equilibrium! That is true excitement
