Games for Two

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

The world of games has inspired many mathematicians. Many people with a mathematical interest have created and analyzed games. Some of these analyses led to the development of a branch of mathematics known as combinatorial game theory, which studies two-player games in which chance is not involved, and in which the state of the game and the set of available moves is always known by both players. In this section we will take a look at some of these games which can be analyzed mathematically for optimal play. Nim games, games on graphs, and other less-known, newer games will be played and discussed.
