The Reliable Energy Efficient Routing Protocol Based on Cooperative and Non-Cooperative Repeated Game Theory in Wireless Sensor Networks

Authors(2) :-Dr. V. Vinoba, S. Sridevi

Game theory is a field of applied mathematics for analysing complex interactions among entities. It is basically a collection of analytic tools that enables distributed decision process. Game theory (GT) provides insights into any economic, political, or social situation that involves individuals with different preferences. GT is used in economics, political science and biology to model competition and cooperation among entities, and the role of threats/penalties in long term relations. Contemporary social science is based on game theory, economics, and psychology in which mathematical logic is applied. The formation of coalitions and non-coalitional or alliances is omnipresent in many applications. For example, in political games, parties, or individuals can form coalitions and non-coalitional for improving their voting power. Recently, computer science and engineering have been added to the list of scientific areas applying GT. While in optimization theory the goal is to optimize a single objective over one decision variable, game theory studies multi-agent decision problems. In social sciences and economics, the focus of game is the design of right motivations/payoffs; in engineering it comes to efficiency – how to design efficient decentralized schemes that take into account incentives. However, there are still similarities when applying game theory to different disciplines
