"This book is an introduction to the mathematics of noncooperative game theory. Each concept is explained in detail, starting from a main example, with a slowpaced proof of each theorem. The book has been designed and tested for selfstudy, and as an undergraduate course text with core chapters and optional chapters for different audiences. It has been developed over 15 years for a onesemester course on game theory at the London School of Economics and the distance learning program of the University of London, attended each year by about 200 thirdyear students in mathematics, economics, management, and other degrees. After studying this book, a student who started from firstyear mathematics (the basics of linear algebra, analysis, and probability) will have a solid understanding of the most important concepts and theorems of noncooperative game theory"
