So you think you know game theory?

Who is Julia Hall Bowman Robinson?

In fact she is the mother of evolutionary game theory. (No, that is not like being The Mother of All Wars.)

Who is Emile Borel?

Some easier questions are available too, including biograhies of the top game theorists and a good introductory guide to game theory concepts. I’ll be happier with game theory when Tom Schelling wins the Nobel Prize; in the meantime I use game-theoretic mechanisms in my thinking just about every day. It is hard to believe that game theory was a fringe topic as recently as the 1970s.
