|The framework of non-cooperative game theory has been recently extended to
study the strategic behavior
of players organized in complex socio-economic networks.
However, the existence of a large number of (very different) Nash equilibria
standard game theoretic analysis cumbersome and quantitatively less
effective. On the other hand, it opens to
the application of advanced theoretical and algorithmic techniques from the
statistical mechanics of disordered systems.
I will review some recent results on the problem of free-riding in public
goods games and on the emergence of collaborative equilibria.
Finally, I will discuss some open problems concerning dynamical aspects in
repeated games and games with incomplete information.
