## differences

*An introduction to game theory* and *A course in game theory* cover much of the same material, using the same definitions and notation. Here are some differences between the books.

*An introduction to game theory*contains extended examples of Nash equilibrium.*An introduction to game theory*contains a separate chapter on Bayesian games.*An introduction to game theory*contains a separate chapter on evolutionary equilibrium.- The material on maxminimization in
*An introduction to game theory*is treated separately from Nash equilibrium, in its own chapter. - In the definition of a Bayesian game in
*An introduction to game theory*, each player's belief about the states*after*receiving her signal, rather than her prior belief, is taken as a primitive (so that the need to use Bayes' Rule is avoided). - In
*An introduction to game theory*, the primitive in the definition of an extensive game with perfect information is the set of terminal histories, rather than the set of all histories. *An introduction to game theory*contains no material on correlated equilibrium, knowledge, complexity considerations in repeated games, or implementation theory.
