Researchers are beginning to understand the ways in which viruses strategically manipulate and cooperate with one another.

The theoretical computer scientist Constantinos Daskalakis has won the Rolf Nevanlinna Prize for explicating core questions in game theory and machine learning.

What does John Nash’s game theory equilibrium concept look like in Rock-Paper-Scissors?

How well does the Nash equilibrium concept from game theory map to the real world?

In applying game theory to biology and human behavior, have scientists focused too much on competition over cooperation?

John Nash’s notion of equilibrium is ubiquitous in economic theory, but a new study shows that it is often impossible to reach efficiently.

The mathematician John Horton Conway’s myriad accomplishments — including the Game of Life, sprouts and the surreal numbers — are the product of a mind at play.

A new solution to the prisoner’s dilemma, a classic game theory scenario, has created new puzzles in evolutionary biology.

An insight borrowed from computer science suggests that evolution values both fitness and diversity.
