NEW! Abhijit Ramalingam, Melanie Parravano, and I contributed to an episode of the recent series, "The Bishop and the Bankers" for BBC Radio 4. We conducted what we believe were the first game theory/economics experiments for radio, using a trust game. Listen to Episode 3 to find out how it went!
Gambit: Software Tools for Game Theory
I am the project maintainer of Gambit, the premier software package for computation in finite game theory.
