[Computational Complexity] Game Theory
Speaking of names, the associated press released a story yesterday More Colleges Offering Game Theory Courses about new courses on creating video games. CNN originally used this title and has since retitled the article More colleges offer gaming theory courses, and some sites now have the more accurate title More Colleges Offering Video Game Courses.
Many fields have historically bad names (like Computer Science) but Game Theory has a name that invokes an area of study quite different than what it actually does. Bob Soare led the charge to change recursion theory to computability theory with some success. Should the game theory community try to do the same? And what should they call it?
