Strategische Spiele : eine Einführung in die Spieltheorie by Siegfried Berninghaus( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in German and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Buch ist eine Einführung in die nicht-kooperative Spieltheorie. Es spricht Studenten der Wirtschaftswissenschaften, der angewandten Mathematik, aber auch der Sozialwissenschaften im Hauptstudium an, die Interesse und Freude an präziser Modellierung haben. Unter Einbeziehung neuester Forschungsresultate werden neben den Grundlagen der Normalform- und Extensivformspiele Themen aus der Verhandlungstheorie, der Theorie der Wiederholten Spiele und der Evolutionären Spieltheorie ausführlich behandelt. Die verwendeten ökonomischen Konzepte werden gründlich eingeführt. Daneben werden auch Grundlagen der Experimentellen Spieltheorie vermittelt. Viele der theoretischen Resultate werden mit bekannten experimentellen Ergebnissen konfrontiert. Diese spezielle Verbindung von Theorie und Experiment ist für ein Lehrbuch der Spieltheorie vollkommen neu
Unique solutions for strategic games : equilibrium selection based on resistance avoidance by Werner Güth( Book )

12 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book develops a general solution concept for strategic games which resolves strategic uncertainty completely. The concept is described by a mathematically formulated solution procedure and illustrated by applying it to many interesting examples. A long nontechnical introduction tries to survey and to discuss the more technical parts of the book. The book and especially the introduction provide firm and consistent guidance for scholars of game theory. There are many open problems which could inspire further research efforts
Advances in understanding strategic behaviour : game theory, experiments, and bounded rationality : essays in honour of Werner Güth by Steffen Huck( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first ultimatum game, conducted by Werner Güth in the late 1970s, marks a crucial point in the history of modern economics-suddenly game theory lost its innocence and there was a chasm-between the beauty and elegance of the theory on one hand and the dour facts of behaviour on the other. Since then, the economics literature has slowly started filling this gap. Evolutionary game theory, preference evolution, learning models, models of bounded rationality with and without optimization, and, of course, more and more systematic experimental evidence-all these approaches flourished, competing with each other as well as complementing each other. This volume collects sixteen articles written in honour of Werner Güth. In their variety they reflect the entire spectrum of approaches that are currently employed at the frontiers of (behavioral) game theory. Each is inspiring on its own and together they illustrate the excitement of the agenda of understanding strategic behaviour
Spieltheorie und ökonomische (Bei)Spiele by Werner Güth( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in German and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In einem strategischen Spiel gibt es stets mehrere autonom entscheidende Akteure, die ihre individuellen Interessen verfolgen. Jede soziale Konfliktsituation mit opportunistisch handelnden Individuen erweist sich daher als strategisches Spiel. In diesem Lehrbuch werden strategische Spiele exakt beschrieben und das individuell rationale Entscheidungsverhalten aller Beteiligten determiniert. Beschrieben werden Spiele in Stufenform, in extensiver Form, in Agentennormalform, in Normalform sowie in charakteristischer Funktionsform. Alle Konzepte zur Darstellung und Lösung strategischer Spiele werden durch vielfältige ökonomische (Bei)Spiele veranschaulicht, wodurch auch das konstruktive Vorgehen bei Anwendung dieser Konzepte vorgeführt wird
Essays on economic psychology by Hermann Brandstätter( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic behavior is explored from a psychological perspective by both, prominent economic psychologists with a long tradition in studying economic problems as well as economists who are open and interested in the psychological aspects of economic behavior. The contributions discuss the prospects and difficulties of this dialogue between psychology and economics and survey some important areas of research where such an interdisciplinary approach has proved to be successful. The text can also be used to introduce psychology to economists in order to give them an idea how to analyze economic problems from a psychological perspective. It also indicates many urgent and exciting research topics awaiting eager scholars to carry on the dialogue
Theorie der Marktwirtschaft by Werner Güth( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in German and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Theorie der Marktwirtschaft versucht, die Güterallokationen auf allen Märkten einer Volkswirtschaft mit Privateigentum an Konsumgütern und Produktionsmitteln zu erklären. Nach Darstellung der Haushaltstheorie werden die wesentlichen Konzepte der Marktwirtschaftstheorie zunächst im Rahmen von Tauschökonomien vorgestellt und in ihrem Aussageinhalt diskutiert. Danach werden die technologischen Gegebenheiten einer Firma mittels des Konzepts der Technologiemenge beschrieben, das auch Mehrproduktunternehmen zuläßt. Neben der Produktions- und Kostentheorie werden auch stochastische Produktionsprozesse und die betriebliche Organisationsproblematik behandelt. Abschließend werden Produktionsökonomien analysiert, in denen Haushalte und Unternehmen interagieren
Markt- und Preistheorie by Werner Güth( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in German and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auf Märkten interagieren Tauschpartner, wobei die institutionellen Gegebenheiten von Markt zu Markt differieren und sich häufig im Zeitablauf verändern. Anliegen dieser Einführung in die Markt- und Preistheorie ist die Darstellung eines Instrumentariums zur formalen Abbildung und Analyse von Märkten, mit dem sich alle Märkte unabhängig von ihrer institutionellen Ausgestaltung erfassen lassen. Wie dieses (spiel)theoretische Instrumentarium anzuordnen ist, wird anhand von Märkten für einzelne (homogene Märkte) oder mehrere Güter (heterogene Märkte) mit vielfältigen Angebotsstrukturen sowie Märkten mit Kartellbildung oder Verhandlungen demonstriert. Die methodische Konsistenz resultiert aus der Anwendung einer einheitlichen Gleichgewichtsidee

Overconfidence in investment decisions : an experimental approach by Dennis Dittrich( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We experimentally test overconfidence in investment decisions by offering participants the possibility to substitute their own for alternative investment choices. Overall, 149 subjects participated in two experiments, one with just one risky asset, the other with two risky assets. Overconfidence increases (i) with the absolute deviation from optimal choices, (ii) with task complexity, and (iii) decreases with uncertainty as indicated by the difference between willingness to pay and to accept
Evolutionary norm enforcement by Werner Güth( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applying an indirect evolutionary approach with endogenous preference formation, we show that a legal system can induce players to reward trust even if material incentives dictate to exploit trust. By analyzing the crowding out or crowding in of trustworthiness implied by various verdict rules, we can assess how a court influences the share of kept promises of "truly" trustworthy players who evolutionarily evolved as trustworthy and of opportunistic players who are only trustworthy if inspired by material incentives
Illusion of expertise in portfolio decisions - an experimental approach by Gerlinde Fellner( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overall, 72 subjects invest their endowment in four risky assets. Each combination of assets yields the same expected return and variance of returns. Illusion of expertise prevails when one prefers nevertheless the self-selected portfolio. After being randomly assigned to groups of four subjects are asked to elect their "expert" based on responses to a prior decision task. Using the random price mechanism reveals that 64% of the subjects prefer their own portfolio over the average group portfolio or the expert's portfolio. Illusion of expertise is shown to be stable individually, over alternatives, and for both eliciting methods, willingness to pay and to accept
Why do people veto? : an experimental analysis of the valuation and the consequences of varying degrees of veto power by Werner Güth( Book )

Tax morale and optimal taxation presented at CESifo Venice Summer Institute, Workshop on Behavioral Public Economics, July 2004 by Werner Güth( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study experimentally how taxpayers choose between two tax regimes to fund a public good. The first-best tax regime imposes a general, distortion-free income tax. However, this tax cannot be enforced. The second-best alternative supplements the income tax by a specific commodity tax. This tax cannot be evaded but distorts optimal consumption choices, instead. The result is that a large majority of subjects prefer the general income tax regime. The bulk of votes is consistent with actual payoffs. We isolate tax morale as cause for payoffs above theoretical predictions
