            Originally invented to explain complicated economic behaviors, game theory is poised to become a fundamental technique in the field of wireless communications and networks. This book explains how game theory can be used to address a wide range of issues in wireless communications... and examines how it can be employed in infrastructure-based wireless networks and multihop networks to reduce power consumption, improve system capacity, decrease packet loss, and enhance network resilience. The authors demonstrate how to effectively apply the game theoretic model to handle issues of resource allocation, congestion control, attack, routing, energy management, packet forwarding, and MAC.

            Evolutionary Computation with Biogeography-based Optimization

            Evolutionary computation algorithms are employed to minimize functions with large number of variables. Biogeography-based optimization (BBO) is an optimization algorithm that is based on the science of biogeography, which researches the migration patterns of species. These migrat...ion paradigms provide the main logic behind BBO. Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of the optimization problems, there is a need to develop multiple approaches to tackle them and to study the theoretical reasoning behind their performance. This manuscript intends to explain the mathematical model of BBO algorithm and its variants created to cope with continuous domain problems (with and without constraints) and combinatorial problems.

            This new edition ends with an epilogue that sets the stage for further research on surreal numbers. The book is a must-have for all readers with a serious interest in the mathematical foundations of game strategies. ONAG, as the book is known, is one of those rare publications th...at sprang to life in a moment of creative energy and has remained influential for over a quarter of a century. Still in high demand, it is being republished with some adjustments and corrections. The original motivation for writing the book was an attempt to understand the relation between the theories of transfinite numbers and mathematical games. By defining numbers as the strengths of positions in certain games, the author arrives at a new class, the surreal numbers (so named by Donald Knuth) that includes at the same time the real numbers and the ordinal numbers. This new edition ends with an epilogue that sets the stage for further research on surreal numbers. The book is a must-have for all readers with a serious interest in the mathematical foundations of game strategies.
