Abstract

this paper aims to be as technically simple as possible, it would be a mistake to think that game theory is more rigorous, more formal, or more precise than a computational model from AI. The implementation of an AI theory as a computer program is a complete demonstration of rigor, formality, and precision, if not often of elegance. The acknowledged disadvantage of a computational model is that complexity is usually introduced to make a computational model more expressive. In contrast, in a mathematical model, complexity is limited in order to make possible the proving of theorems. 4. The notation of proposals is chosen to conform to game theory's idea of a payoff matrix, but a formal commitment to such an ontology is not intended here. 3
