Abstract

This paper introduces Hermite's polynomials, in the description of quantum games. Hermite's polynomials are associated with gaussian probability density. The gaussian probability density represents minimum dispersion. I introduce the concept of minimum entropy as a paradigm of both Nash's equilibrium (maximum utility MU) and Hayek equilibrium (minimum entropy ME). The ME concept is related to Quantum Games. Some questions arise after carrying out this exercise: i) What does Heisenberg's uncertainty principle represent in Game Theory and Time Series?, and ii) What do the postulates of Quantum Mechanics indicate in Game Theory and Economics?.
Keywords: quantum games. minimum entropy. time series. Nash-Hayek equilibrium quantum games. minimum entropy. time series. Nash-Hayek equilibrium
