Special Issue Information
We are glad to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue “Behavioral Game Theory: Theory and Experiments.”
Game Theory constitutes a powerful tool to design and study mathematical models of strategic interaction between rational decision-makers. During the last two decades, there has been growing interest in these models being realistic and representative of real situations, which implies that both the players’ strategies and the rules governing their interactions have to be realistic and based, respectively, on the way people make decisions and interact with each other. In this sense, Behavioral Game Theory combines the methods of Game Theory with Experimental Economics and Experimental Psychology to study decision-making processes in real-societal scenarios.
This Special Issue aims to bring together researchers from various fields of Behavioral Game Theory, including Economics, Complex Systems Science, Sociology, and Psychology. We accept both experimental and human-based theoretical contributions. Both short reviews and original papers will be considered for publication.
