I have read "Fun and Games" by Ken Binmore. I think the book is good, but I do not share some of his views, specially regarding Bayesian rationality and its relevance in Game Theory.
I am now reading "Modeling Bounded Rationality" by Ariel Rubinstein. I share his views to some point. I think that a lot experimental work (analyzing how we, humans, take decisions) has yet to be done before we can have conclusive results on that area.
Yesterday I received some more food for my brain. My reading list now looks like this (growing):
- Game Theory: Analysis of Conflict, by Myerson (I have not yet received any of the Fudenberg books, so I will start by Myerson, that I have at hand and looks really well written)
- Game Theory, by Fudenberg and Tirole
- The Theory of Learning in Games, by Fudenberg and Levine
- Evolutionary Games and Population Dynamics, by Hofbauer and Sigmund
- Cooperative Game Theory and Applications, by Inma Curiel
- Evolutionary Game Theory, by Weibull
- The complexity of cooperation, by Robert Axelrod
Bufffff, quite a lot of work for Xmas!!
I am preparing the slides for my PhD defense taking place in Dec, 15th. Boring!
I have started to teach "Scripting Languages". First class has been about why using scripting languages. Next talk I will start with Ruby
I have read Peter McBurney notes on what means doing a PhD. it is worth reading it if you are thinking in engaging in a PhD coming from a successful business carreer.
Yesterday I went to an exposition by "Colectivo Psicoplástico" at La Xina Art. Thanks to lagatacristi for inviting me and for the nice piece of chat.
