Collected Papers, Volume 2


“Game theory in its glory. This collection is a parade of deep insights and beautiful ideas led by of one of the most influential economic theoreticians of his generation.”
Ariel Rubinstein , Professor of Economics, Tel-Aviv University andPrinceton University
“Bob Aumann is not only one of game theory's all-time greats, he is a living refutation of the myth that creativity dries up with advancing age. This two-volume collection of his papers provides a rare opportunity to trace the intellectual development of a man who always has something new to say.”
Ken Binmore, Professor of Economics, University College London
“Robert J. Aumann is one of the most distinguished game theorists of our time. The two volumes of his Collected Papers provide a fascinating insight into the thinking of an eminent game theorist about game theory itself, as well as about some very interesting economic, political, and legal problems.”
John C. Harsanyi, Nobel Laureate in Economics in 1994, Professor Emeritus of Business Administration and of Economics, Haas School of Business, University of California
“In my view the publication of the collected papers of Robert J. Aumann is a very important event. He is one of the great figures in the history of game theory. His work has had a tremendous influence on the field. I am one of those who greatly admire his extraordinary mathematical capabilities, his ingenuity, and his wisdom. Much can be gained from studying his collected papers. I am looking forward to the opportunity.”
Reinhard Selten, Professor Emeritus of Economics, University of Bonn
“One can call the 'Israeli School' a set of students, working in Israel, of game theory and related topics. These researchers have produced a major channel of the research on the problems opened up by Von Neumann and Morgenstern, particularly those for 'co-operative games'.

R. J. Aumann can be recognized as the leader of this school and most of the other prominent figures of the group were his students at the Hebrew University. Aumann's work is typified both by mathematical precision and by philosophical breadth and depth.

The 2 volumes of the Collected Papers of Aumann include almost all of his publications through 1994. The collection also provides valuable connections with the work of Shapley and others.”
