This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book's main themes. This book focuses on a class of general models, quantal response equilibrium (QRE) models, and its applications to economics, political science, and pure game theory. It aims to lay out for an informed reader the broad array of theoretical and experimental results based on QRE. It contains some genuinely new material, offering new directions and open issues that have not been explored in depth yet, as well as delving into a range of peripheral issues, tangencies, and more detailed data analysis than the typical journal-article format allows for. There is also a “how-to” aspect to the book, as it provides details and sample programs to show readers how to compute QRE and how to take it to the data.

Keywords:   Nash equilibrium, quantal response equilibrium, QRE, statistical game theory, economics, political science, pure game theory
