Game theory from A to Z

I'll be travelling this morning to Stony Brook, to participate in the part of their annual festival that is celebrating Bob Aumann's 80th birthday, and Shmuel Zamir's 70th.

Here's a picture I took of the two of them at a Stony Brook party in honor of Lloyd Shapley in the summer of 2003.

"Aumann" and "Zamir" were two of the first names I learned to conjure with, when I started studying game theory in the 1970's.

יום הולדת שמח, Happy birthday Bob and Shmuel.

And here's the program.
