Gemme theory

Frae Wikipedia, the free beuk o knawledge

Gemme theory is a study o strategic deceesion makin. Mair formally, it is "the study o mathematical models o conflict an cooperation atween intelligent rational deceesion-makers".[1] An alternative term suggestit "as a mair descriptive name for the discipline" is interactive deceesion theory.[2] Gemme theory is mainly uised in economics, poleetical science, an psychology, as well as logic an biology. The subject first addressed zero-sum gemmes, such that ane person's gains exactly equal net losses o the ither pairticipant(s). The day, however, gemme theory applies tae a wide range o behavioral relations, an haes developed intae an umbrella term for the logical side o deceesion science, tae include baith human an non-humans, lik computers.
