A SURVEY OF DYNAMIC GAMES IN ECONOMICS
by Ngo Van Long, McGill University, Canada
The ideas underlying differential game arose from Isaacs' Rand Paper P 257, in 1951, inspired by von Neumann at Rand. Subsequently, the focus tur ns pragmatic, and main applications come from understandably economics , the discipline about interactive decision-making with foresight. Befittingly, as differential game approaches its 60th anniversary, this volume appears as the best possible introduction for the interested readers. Professor Long, a top economist with wide ranging contributions, has covered the topic with clarity, eloquence, thoroughness and impeccable rigor.
