game theory

 

Definition: the branch of mathematical logic concerned with the range of possible reactions to a particular strategy; each reaction can be assigned a probability and each reaction can lead to a counter-reaction by the “adversary” in the game. Used mainly in systems analysis, game theory has some applications in disease surveillance and control; it is one of the underlying theories in clinical decision analysis.
