Long DescriptionModern game theory - the scientific study of interactive, rational decision making - achieved prominence in the mid-20th century and has proven instrumental in helping us understand how and why we make decisions. Game theory plays a crucial role in our lives and provides startling insights into all endeavors in which humans cooperate or compete, including biology, computer science, politics, agriculture, and, most importantly, economics. You can see game theory at work in the interactions you engage in every day, such as an obvious "game," like buying a car, or a less obvious one, like trying to decide where to go on a Saturday night or how you ought to dress. Award-winning Professor Scott Stevens introduces you to the tools of game theory by exploring several classic games, each involving two players who can make one of two choices. Translating them into everyday examples, Professor Stevens shows how these games occur everywhere, from casual life to business to international diplomacy. Just as these lessons introduce you to game theory's most important ideas, they also introduce you to many of its most important minds, like von Neumann, Nash, Arrow, Nalebuff, and Brandenberger. While game theory is rooted in mathematics, this course requires nothing more than a basic understanding of how numbers operate and interact. Each lesson features visually rich graphics that help you grasp the simple mathematical ideas underlying this fascinating field of study. LIFETIME MANUFACTURER WARRANTY.

Royal Mail 4-State Customer Code is used for the Royal Mail Cleanmail service. It enables UK postcodes as well as Delivery Point Suffixes (DPSs) to be easily read by a machine at high speed.

Each character is made up of 4 bars, 2 of which extend upward, and 2 of which extend downward. The combination of the top and bottom halves gives 36 possible symbols: 10 digits and 26 letters.

As the example right shows, the barcode consists of a start character, the postcode, the Delivery Point Suffix (DPS), a checksum character, and a stop character. The DPS is a two-character code ranging from 1A to 9T, with codes 9U to 9Z being accepted as default codes when no DPS has been allocated
