The Theory Of Game Theory
3442 Words  14 PagesBrief introduction In this mathematical investigation, game theory is discussed. Game theory is the area of mathematics that considers methods of selecting best strategies in situations of conflict of interest. It is applicable to psychology, economics, politics, warfare. It is the practical nature of this subject that makes it truly interdisciplinary. It is the practical nature that makes it, in my opinion, worthwhile studying. Game theory is closely linked to probability and statistics, in fact…

An Introduction Of Martingale Theory
1465 Words  6 PagesIntroduction to Martingale Theory Martingale Theory is a simple mathematical model which models sequence of a fair game [1]. It is a stochastic process on some probability space {Ω, F, P}. Originally it was used as a betting strategy during 18th century in France. In 1934, Paul Lévy introduced concept of Martingale in probability theory. It is named after ‘La Grande Martingale,’ which means strategy for even odd bets where bets are doubled every time we lose. Idea behind this betting strategy is…

The Theory Of Game Theory
1616 Words  7 PagesGame theory is one to more complexed topics but reveals a clear understanding from different scholars.
