Please join us for this kick off event for Math Circle! Naoki Sato will give an enlightening talk about Game Theory as described below:
When playing a two-player game, what is the best move? What is the best overall strategy? And is there a way to determine who can win? In this talk, we will be exploring the basics of combinatorial game theory, starting with simple two-player games, such as Nim. Along the way, we will see how we can determine winning positions, and we will give techniques for analyzing other types of games.
