Differential Games

Front Cover

This volume lays the mathematical foundations for the theory of differential games, developing a rigorous mathematical framework with existence theorems. It begins with a precise definition of a differential game and advances to considerations of games of fixed duration, games of pursuit and evasion, the computation of saddle points, games of survival, and games with restricted phase coordinates. Final chapters cover selected topics (including capturability and games with delayed information) and N-person games.
Geared toward graduate students, Differential Games will be of particular interest to professionals in the fields of electrical engineering, industrial engineering, economics, and mathematics. Although intended primarily for self-study, it can be used as a core or ancillary text in courses in differential games, game theory, and control theory.

Baltazar Aguda is currently associate professor of Genetics & Genomics at the Boston University
School of Medicine. He holds joint appointments in Biomedical Engineering, in the Bioinformatics
& Systems Biology program at Boston University, and a membership in the Center for Biodynamics
in the same university. Recently, he was appointed member of the National Science
Foundation's (NSF, USA) research proposal review panel in molecular & cellular biosciences
(2004-7). He was a visiting faculty at the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at Ohio State University
(2003), at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel (2000), and a visiting associate at
the California Institute of Technology (2000-2001). Dr. Aguda obtained his PhD in Chemistry
(Chemical Physics Program) from the University of Alberta in Canada (1986), and was a tenured
faculty member of the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Laurentian University in
Canada (1994-2002) before moving to Boston. Avner Friedman is a Distinguished Professor of Mathematics and Physical Sciences at
the Ohio State University, where he also serves as the Director of the Mathematical Biosciences
Institute. He received his Ph.D. degree in 1956 from the Hebrew University.
He was Professor of Mathematics at Northwestern University (1962-1985), and a Duncan
Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at Purdue University (1985-1987).
