Show Summary Details


Acting in the world in the situation that the agent is aware of requires command of decision options. Basic decision can be handled with barrier models, but social decisions require Game Theory. Simple games can be handled with fixed strategies, but most games require that the players use fractional strategies to be successful. Even more difficult interaction games such as iterated Prisoner’s Dilemma require additional formulations to avoid the worst-case Nash equilibrium.
