Theory of quantum games is a new area of investigation that has gone through rapid development during the last few years. Initial motivation for playing games, in the quantum world, comes from the possibility of re-formulating quantum communication protocols, and algorithms, in terms of games between quantum and classical players. The possibility led to the view that quantum games have a potential to provide helpful insight into working of quantum algorithms, and even in finding new ones. This… 
Quantum game theory based on the Schmidt decomposition
We present a novel formulation of quantum game theory based on the Schmidt decomposition, which has the merit that the entanglement of quantum strategies is manifestly quantified. We apply this

Ju l 2 00 7 Constructing quantum games from non-factorizable probabilities
A probabilistic framework is developed in which one can analyze both the classical and the quantum games. We suggest exploiting peculiar probabilities involved in the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR)
Do quantum strategies always win?
A slight modification to the quantum game, with the two players sharing an entangled state to begin with, and shows that in this quantum game of preserving versus destroying entanglement a particular classical algorithm can beat the quantum algorithm.
An Evolutionary Quantum Game Model of Financial Market Dynamics - Theory and Evidence
The application of mathematical physics to economics has seen a recent development in the form of quantum game theory. Quantum game theory has become an important field of research in
Probabilistic analysis of three-player symmetric quantum games played using EPR setting
This framework extends the probabilistic framework for two-player quantum games to the mutliplayer case, and shows that the players can indeed escape from the classical outcome of the game, because of non-factorizable joint probabilities that the EPR setting can provide.


Quantum strategies
It is proved that in general a quantum strategy is always at least as good as a classical one, and furthermore that when both players use quantum strategies there need not be any equilibrium, but if both are allowed mixed quantum strategiesthere must be.
Quantum correlation games
A new approach to play games quantum mechanically is proposed. We consider two players who perform measurements in an EPR-type setting. The payoff relations are defined as functions of correlations,
Quantum games
Abstract In these lecture notes we investigate the implications of the identification of strategies with quantum operations in game theory beyond the results presented Eisert et al. (1999, Phys. Rev.

Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics was a revolutionary book that caused a sea change in theoretical physics. Here, John von Neumann, one of the leading mathematicians of the twentieth
Evolution and the Theory of Games
It is beginning to become clear that a range of problems in evolution theory can most appropriately be attacked by a modification of the theory of games, a branch of mathematics first formulated by Von Neumann and Morgenstern in 1944 for the analysis of human conflicts.

We study a general 2 × 2 symmetric entangled quantum game. When one player has access only to classical strategies, while the other can use the full range of quantum strategies, there are ‘miracle’
we would call cooperative. This theory is based on an analysis of the interrelationships of the various coalitions which can be formed by the players of the game. Our theory, in contradistinction, is
Quantum two- and three-person duels
In game theory, a popular model of a struggle for survival among three competing agents is a truel, or three-person generalization of a duel. Adopting the ideas recently developed in quantum game
Game theory for applied economists
This book introduces one of the most powerful tools of modern economics to a wide audience: those who will later construct or consume game-theoretic models. Robert Gibbons addresses scholars in
A Semi-quantum Version of the Game of Life
A version of John Conway’s game of Life is presented where the normal binary values of the cells are replaced by oscillators which can represent a superposition of states. The original game of Life
