Colloquium

Bounded Rationality Game Theory

David Wolpert
CNLS and NASA Ames

I begin by reviewing the simplest types of noncooperative and cooperative game theory. I then summarize two models of bounded rational behavior in noncooperative games. I show how under the first of those models hysteretic effects arise when an external regulator modifies tax rates on the game's players. I then show how the second of those two models can be used to optimally control the behavior of human pilots in near-midair collisions. I end by introducing a model of bounded rational behavior for the simplest type of cooperative game theory, and illustrate how it can be used to optimize what bargains to suggest to a set of negotiating players.
