This book aims at giving an introduction to the principles and techniques
of quantum cryptography, including secretkey distillation, as well as some
more advanced topics. As quantum cryptography is now becoming a practical
reality with products available commercially, it is important to focus not
only on the theory of quantum...   Lectures in Game Theory for Computer Scientists
Game playing is a powerful metaphor that fits many situations where interaction
between autonomous agents plays a central role. Numerous tasks
in computer science, such as design, synthesis, verification, testing, query
evaluation, planning, etc. can be formulated in gametheoretic terms. Viewing
them abstractly as games reveals the...
