Introduction We studied models with internal interest LPP, Transportation, Assignment etc In practical life, it is required to take decisions • in a competing situation • there are two or more opposite parties with conflicting interest and • the outcome is controlled by the directions of all parties concerned 3
• 4. Outcome matrix • Just reading the text is hard to absorb, let’s representing the game:use a concise way my pair of A B A me B grades 6 7,7 10,3 3,10 9,9
• 5. The grade game: discussion What did you choose? Why? Two possible way of thinking: – Regardless of my partner choice, there would be better outcomes for me by choosing A rather than B; – We could all be collusive and work together, hence by choosing B we would get higher grades. • • 8
• 7. There may be win win situations or Win Lose situations or even Lose Lose
• 8. What is a Game....? 1. How many persons are involved...? 2. Is any rule is needed ...? 3. What is the outcome...?
