A special thanks to Dr. Ginn for his help in understanding Blackwell’s “The Big Match” paper that dealt with game theory.

 

Notes on References

 

The paper “The Big Match” is a great source to learn about game theory. This is where I got my examples and probability statement that is in my paper.

 

The site from the game theory society is where I found the applications to game theory.

 

Linear Algebra Modules for Interactive Learning Using Maple-Updated Preliminary Version is where I found my information in understanding Markov matrices. This is an excellent source because it is easy to understand and gives great examples. The example found in my paper is from this book.

 

The “zero-sum game” web page is where I leaned what a zero-sum game was. This is a good source for this reason only.

 

The MAD web page is where I found the information needed to learn about Blackwell’s background. It was very informative and told of the prejudices that he encountered.

 

Dr. Ginn was a wonderful source because he is knowledgeable about Game Theory.
