Melvyn Bragg (apols spelling) on game theory (was on Monday, 10 May)
oho! this is going to be fun!
…heh well that’s me up to speed on the history, the (fascinating) math, the social dimension, the good words to look up and it was mildy interesting. Computers were not mentioned (or did I blink) – apparently they have not historically contributed anything to the advancement of this field of study. I come away believing that all the good thinking was done in the past, using twigs or something.
But I’m always up for a good bit o’ math.
Wonder if this stew needs more salt…
