关于此课程： This course will cover the mathematical theory and analysis of simple games without chance moves.
Great course. I will try now the optional exercises and try having a deeper understanding on this.
A good introduction into Combinatorial Game Theory.
It's obvious this course follows the book Winning Ways for your Mathematical Plays, vol I.
This course does extremely well on its own,but you can also chose to work together while working through Winning Ways (which I personally would recommend, if you can get your hands on that book).
very fun introduction course. it doesn't take much time. however we don't go much in depth, just the concepts are given. The strategy to win at Nim is given as well, but no proof of it, not even as an extra, which is a bit disappointing because it was kind of being the highlight of the course. i guess we have to think by ourselves to understand why it works (or google it...)
i was surprised to discover symbols such as up, down, star, ... and all those surreal numbers... the last lecture leaves us wanting more but alas the course is too short
Excellent! An interesting subject taught by a very good teacher.
