The prisoner totals it up. Lesson in game theory

David Kruml

Cooperating or betraying – what pays off more? Are you able not to overeat if you eat from a shared plate? Are you saving up for retirement? What is the point of forgiving? How many grandchildren do unfaithful women have? Is evolution going forward? The first volume of the popular science "Munice" series provides an unusual insight into game theory. It focuses on one of the most interesting problems of the interdisciplinary field: the prisoner’s dilemma. Fresh and swift, it explains its principles with the help of many original pictures and schemes.

David Kruml is an assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Faculty of Science, Masaryk University. He specializes in algebra, discrete mathematics and game theory. He likes games, especially puzzlehunt games.
