Abstract

A discussion of the utilization of the methods of game theory in operations research is given together with a consideration of the future developments. The language and analogies provided by game theory are now broadly accepted. It is suggested that the deep successes of game theory have illuminated its limitations and have helped to open up investigations in computer science, behavioral economics and simulation where the limitations of intelligence and of data processing are taken into account.
