Currently I am learning ( a beginner ) about Bell inequalities and device independent outlook on quantum mechanics. I come across some papers using these concept in quantum game theory. Most of the papers I just browsed through to find make use of linear programming a lot. Some make use of complexity classes also. To learn about quantum game theory what basics precisely one needs ? I had taken up courses way long back about complexity classes and linear programming. Do I need to learn them again properly and what else background is needed ?

  • $\begingroup$ I'd be interested in seeing a good answer to this question also -- thanks for asking it. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I would assume that topic like this needs strong knowledge of probability theory. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ More resources in this link: web.mit.edu/redingtn/www/netadv/Xgame.html I'll be using them after finishing that introductory pdf. Cheers. $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2015 at 10:55

Here's another place to start: http://www.thebigquestions.com/eorms.pdf Obviously, you should learn some basic game theory first, to understand the concepts before adding in quantum. I like Matthew Jackson's http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1968579. Hope this helps. Trurl.
